Hi, All. I am a child of the 1950s. My father taught me that I have rights, he has rights, we all have rights. But your rights Stop when they bump into my rights, & so do mine. If you need to push your rights further, then you need to go somewhere else where you can exert your rights without running over someone else's. That respects Everyone's rights & personal dignity & space. It is how a civilization SUCCEEDS.
But when you have the people who've been changi g that since the 1980s to where "we all have rights, but SOME of us have more rights than others, (a la George Orwell) then what we have is a bunch of Bullies and the rest of us are reduced to their Victims. Isn't that Exactly what we have ALL been feeling all this time? It is Certainly what I have experienced and seen people suffer with all around me. Friends, our civilization and society will NOT survive nor Succeed with this Abusive and Aggressive philosophy. We do not negotiate with abusers and attackers. They are NOT our "Friends," or "co-" anything. They are our Exploiters and Bleeders. They are vicious and without conscience or remorse. They cannot straighten themselves out or participate in an equal and respectful way in our democracy. WE have to change all pertinent laws and manners of operating in this nation, and clearly not permit them to have any entrance into our realm of rights. Our Success, our democracy, our Human Dignity and Survival depend on it. What do you think? Thank you.
