You Are Not Equal. I’m Sorry.

This feels so patronizing. Shouldn’t the original post be a point of celebration? The fact that someone feels so empowered should be a really good sign that society, not government, is moving in the right direction, right?

What does essentially saying ‘ trust me you’re a second class citizen and you’re wrong to feel free’ actually accomplish? Isnt people blindly following the narrative the they’re told represents the generalized group that someone else tells them they’re a part of already a huge problem?

It feels very much like a pushing of the ‘you’re either with us or against us’ rhetoric, I’d argue the very same rhetoric that allowed Trump to unexpectedly get elected. It’s extremely divisive.It stifles free and open discourse between sides and it’s free an open debate that crushes bad ideas while allowing good ideas to grow. It’s the reason no one could accurately predict trumps winning, nobody was able to be honest with their opinions.

At what point do people enjoy the spoils if they have them, do we ever get to do so or is always going to be a consistent circle of pounding the pavement and if it is does anyone ever end up free? If we don’t then what are we fighting for?

It seems to me the masses are still adjusting to the rise of Trump and the discussion will change to one of reflection instead of blame, at least I hope so. So far it’s been a lot of Trump saying shit so people sling similar shit back his way. “An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind”
