Greetings from Calico Blackie!
As some of you know, I have a habit of examining the micro in society to better understand the macro in society.
I look at the “little things” in order to better see society as a whole.
We can take the case of the Salem Witch Trials and use them as an example of “collective hysteria” and mob mentality.
Multiply that by the thousands and you have The Spanish Inquisition and/or Nazi Germany.
Shrink it down and you have The Manson Family.
In each case, large or small, all it takes is a leader.
Today, these small-scale leaders come and go with the times. It’s the large-scale leaders that no longer stand a chance in our world.
Charisma counts for nothing and corporate backing counts for everything. The corporate-owned media creates charisma and tells people whom to follow……
And, we follow.
What can we expect? We’re doomed. Victims of our own follies. Victims of our own individual warped logic.
Case in point…..(under 18 years of age, stop reading here!)….
A good female friend of mine who is 20 years my junior recently ended a 4-year relationship with her live-in boyfriend. Her and I used to work together at one of those tedious jobs where after a few weeks you run out of things to talk about and by then you knew EVERYTHING there is to know about that person.
We were talking and she said: “You know what one of the absolute worst things about dating again is going to be?”
Being the ignorant sort, I said “No, what?”
“Blowjobs” she replied. “Having to give blowjobs again.”
What could I say?
After I thought about that little nugget of unwanted information for awhile, I finally got up my nerve and asked her:
“You mean you lived with and loved a guy for 4 years and had stopped with the oral?”
She said: “Yeah, it’s icky.”
I said: “If it’s so icky, why are you willing to suck off new guys that are practically strangers to you when you wouldn’t do it for a guy you supposedly loved? Why don’t you just tell the “new” guys that you don’t give blowjobs?”
She said: “It’s expected when you’re dating. I’m afraid they won’t go out with me again if I don’t”.
We’re doomed, I tell you.
That “urge” to please. That urge to conform and do what’s expected is ingrained in each of us to a point where women will give blowjobs to virtual strangers because “it’s expected”. I’m certain there are a million instances of males doing what’s expected while dating (oral being one of them), simply because “it’s expected.”
That’s the micro of it.
On the grand scale, WE CONFORM AND DO WHAT’S EXPECTED. We try not to think about it. We just bob our heads for Uncle Sam no matter how “icky” it has become.
We are victims of our own faulty logic.
Here’s another example of faulty logic…….
Florida Teen Expelled, Charged With Felony For Lesbian Relationship
A Florida family says their 18-year-old daughter was charged with a felony and expelled from high school as a result of a consensual, same-sex relationship with another student.
Kaitlyn Hunt started dating a female classmate at the beginning of the school year when she was 17 and the girl she was dating was about three years younger.
According to an account posted to Facebook by Kaitlyn’s mother, in February, shortly after Kaitlyn turned 18, she was arrested on felony charges at the behest of her girlfriend’s parents. The specific crime was “sexual battery on a person 12-16 years old.”
Kaitlyn’s mother believes the charges were motivated by anti-gay animus:
They were out to destroy my daughter, they feel like my daughter “made” their daughter gay. They are bigoted, religious zeolites [sic] that see being gay as a sin and wrong, and they blame my daughter.
But Kaitlyn’s problems did not end there. Her girlfriends’s parents appealed to the school board and had her expelled from Sebastian River High School. Kaitlyn’s mom reports that the State Attorney, Brian Workman, has offered Kaitlyn a plea deal “of two years house arrest and one year probation.” Kaitlyn has until next Friday to accept the plea deal or face a trial.
Calico Blackie says:
Taken at face value, it would seem as if the authorities were being extremely rough on the 18-year-old by throwing the book at her.
But, I ask you……
What if it had been an 18-year-old male that was “having a relationship” with a 14 year old boy at his school?
What if it was an 18-year-old Boy Scout Troop Leader that was “having a relationship” with one of his 14-year-old Tenderfoot Scouts?
Everyone would be calling for his balls to be chopped off.
She’s a cute little young blonde girl, so let’s give her a break!
So, we need to re-examine society. Maybe either set new barriers, or take them all away.
At any rate….
What we’re doing now ain’t working.
WE NEED CHANGE.
Not the bogus Obama “hope and change” that translates to “business as usual.”
It’s looking more and more as if we’ll have to tear it all down and start over.
Are we ready for it?
Will we ever be ready for it?
