I used to think I was a member of the majority. I used to believe that most people, given the right vocal outlet would ultimately prove rational, reasonable, and thoughtful. I honestly thought it was a vocal minority that pushed, screamed, and unashamedly smashed heads in pursuit of their personal, ego driven goals.
I was wrong.
I recently became much more active in the political communities on a few different social media sites, and I have to say, I am awestruck by the level of childish, brutish name calling. If its not the #p2 “progressives” calling the tea party a bunch of inbred yokels, its the #tcot “conservatives” calling the right wingers a bunch of libtards.
Grow up, America.
We don’t live in the 2010 Utopia of flying cars and robot maids. We live on a razor’s edge between 1984 and Idiocracy. If we don’t stop the petty squabbling, the barbaric rioting, and the blind warship of the almighty sound bite, we’re destined for a fall from which we will never recover.
Are you ready to say, “Enough!”
