Most of you out there feel the same way I did: no matter how much we voice our concerns to the hierarchy of society, the words always seem to fall on deaf ears. And when issues are addressed, they are only addressed just enough to shut everyone up. In other words, they are just placing a band-aid over an open wound requiring stitches AND staples! Let's face it people, the only time anything is ever done up top is when the job is on the line. Once their job seems secure once again, things start to taper off again: leading to more complaints, more issues and more dissatisfaction among the masses.
The approach I plan to take going forward is to counter political correctness and the status quo with unity through individuality. I was taught long ago that there is no way to please everyone 100% of the time. Political correctness is an attempt to reach that goal, but it is failing miserably. If anything, our appointed leaders have succeeded in making all of us upset by way of division. We have been pre-programmed to believe that we have to choose one side or the other: there is no option C, no middle of the road. By doing this, our voices have been rendered mute and meaningless.
I would like to clarify that, while my purpose in all this is to get our voices back to the levels they once were in the past, this blog will not be entirely serious. There will be lighter moments in the mix. In the end, I want people to express themselves without fear of repercussions. I don't want to have any back and fourths among my readers. The only person you need to worry about agreeing or disagreeing with is me. I also want to know why. The most you will get out of me is acknowledgement for having an opinion but I will not argue back. Part of being an individual is understanding and appreciating the fact that not everyone will agree with your position. People, that is OKAY! If you want to break away from the norm-status-quo-it-is-what-it-is mindset, you have to think for yourself. I look forward to making a difference. This is just one small step. I will soon be taking that giant leap. Revive our voices!!!
