Editors note: The other day when I reminded readers about my rules on comments, I invited those of you who had more than a few words to say to send me a guest post for my consideration. I have an entire category that has gone unused lately entitled ‘Comments worth noting/guest posts’ here.
As things happen, this piece from ‘bottomlesscoffeeoo7’ is a timely one.
You know I watch CNN the first thing every morning so I know what the Left/Dems are being told about what to think by the brilliant ones at CNN. Today the show was all about how the President lies all the time (according to fact checkers at the Washington Post).
LOL! When you have a few minutes, search ‘CNN Trump lies’ and see what you get!
The Constant Demand for Conformity is What Breeds Malice
This post was inspired by https://philosophyviaphotos.wordpress.com and their article, “Truth is Single or Many? you can find their article here. If you get the chance, check out their blog, some pretty interesting things. https://philosophyviaphotos.wordpress.com/2018/10/28/truth-is-single-or-many/
To demand that others follow, without their own individual consent is how malice is born and continues to breed. Plato said and I quote “Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder”. This simple phrase is how beauty is determined, by the individual. Not from law or social ideology. The constant push and pull from the time of Adam and Eve is how rape and murder became prevalent.
To demand that others give into your desires, whether through threats or subjecting them to isolation, is what is needed to form an underground coup d’état. Malice is born and breeds in the hatred that is the direct result of mass conformity. If you want an enemy, constantly tell them the “truth”. Demand that they conform and accept the results, regardless of their own thought, opinions or feelings on the matter.
“Truth” seems to be ever more present, yet it was this “truth” that enabled the ideology of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. If these are the lengths people are willing to go for their sudden epiphany of discovering the “truth”, then they must be ready for the backlash that is building just out of sight.
“Truth” be told, this is one of the many reasons President Donald Trump won. For too long, we were told to simply “shut up, sit down and listen”. We are not “scientists”, we are not “academics”, yet we live in the world of cause and effect. We live in the world of layoffs, tax brackets and rising medical costs. We live in the world of debt and ultimately we live in the world, where we are done as we are told, never the other way around.
We have been subjected to mass hysteria and the wagging fingers of the “truth tellers”. From halloween costumes, to revised history, approved speech and laws and regulations that do not and have never applied to the mega donors or the law makers.
Our medical history is used against us. The makers and enforcers of law (which includes insurance law), demand higher and higher premiums, all while disparaging the same industry that we now must pay, BY LAW!
“Climate Change”, “Immigration”, “Hate Speech”, “Diversity”, “Inclusion”, all of these subjects and many more, that we are forbidden from speaking our opinions on in public, breed malice. The mass hysteria over boycotts and who can do what is how President Trump will win in 2020.
Continue to wag your finger and look at me with disgust. Continue to demand that “mental health” is an epidemic, continue to shove me out of my seat, so you can be given a seat at the table that I had to earn.
The “truth” that you speak of is the very reason why I will no longer listen. The “truth” that you speak of, you have weaponized to win. You do not care of the cost. You could not be bothered with the millions you will impugn by demanding that law be catered to this “truth” that you parlay as if any refutation is an assault.
Let the individual choose for themselves. Allow the individual to be the master of their command. Present the evidence and simply step aside, there is no need to win. Time will tell if this “truth” is true, if you cannot be patient, why should we listen?
No one likes an automobile salesperson to hound them, why can’t others grasp this?
I must believe something for myself in my head and my heart before I will ever acknowledge it as “truth”.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.

For years, I nagged readers to write their own blogs. It is not hard and you will find it very satisfying to send your views out in to the world for others to consider or to gather and share facts as real investigative reporters did at one time in our history.
And, as I argued many times, the more of you who become reporters and commenters, the harder it will be for the Leftists to control speech in the tumultuous years ahead.
