The world isn’t perfect. People lie to you, steal from you and go out of their way to hurt you for their own gain. When they’re part of the general public we put them in jail, but when they’re businessmen or politicians we make excuses, find ways to accept it or just ignore it.
Why sugar-coat reality?
Really – Why?! Sugar-coating and being politically correct are shelters for the soft-hearted and intellectually weak to hide under. At some point hiding from the reality of the world will come back and kick you in the ass – that time is now. You just can’t see it because you’ve been surrounded by the blinders, distractions, shelters and political correctness for so long that you can’t even imagine the truth’s horrible face, and you’re not even old. Imagine the kids growing up in this sheltered world – they have absolutely no idea what happens outside of music videos and other pop-culture.
It truly and honestly is time for a Modern Renaissance and the only way that’s going to happen is if YOU start talking about the difference between right and wrong in the world. The more you talk the more people will hear it. Change what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. No more hiding and pretending that pixies and fairies are going to make things all better if you just close your eyes tightly.
You don’t have to agree with me, and I don’t have to agree with you, but for goodness sake start being a participant in the world you live in! Don’t let the media tell you what to do, what to think and what to accept.
