WHAT SCARES ME
I live in a
traditionally low crime suburb of New York City. We have always had the occasional
shop-lifter, drunk drivers, and people who are not polite. None of these societal misfit actions ever scared
me. Not a fan, but never scared me.
A few weeks
ago, a few miles from my home, a lady in a BMW stopped at traffic light in the
middle of the afternoon when a car pulled up next to her, a person jumped out,
tapped on her window with a pistol, pulled her out of her car, hopped in, and both
cars drove away.
In the big
cities, they don’t just shoplift, groups just walk in, tell the store keepers
to fuck off and calmly load up bags of goods, then walk away. If these crimes are in the city they will
soon reach my nice safe enclave.
country there are stories of people randomly being accosted and beaten. Sometimes for money and or electronics, sometimes
seemingly just for sport.
Elon Musk bought out media giant Twitter.
He is planning on making Twitter a free speech platform. Twitter will not be actively monitoring all
opinions. If someone wants to claim the Earth
in is not round, they now can print such “disinformation.”
are very upset over this.
does not scare me.
Election was stolen!”
let me think about that, let me do some research…probably not, but the opinion does
not scare me.
a fake, made up by the Government to control the little people!”
let think about that…no! That is ridiculous.
disinformation does not scare me, I am able to think. Repression of information deemed as
disinformation, by someone I never appointed does scare me.
information, beliefs or opinions are suppressed by someone else, (Government?)
then freedom to think is also suppressed.
Loss of Freedom
of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to think…
That does scare me.
That would scare
me if you were not first allowed to think about it.
