We’ve now entered into the Twilight Zone

| August 4, 2020 1:00 AM

I must have missed the signpost up ahead, because I have obviously entered the Twilight Zone. Looting has become rationalized as just a protest. Defending your property has become a crime. Pride in your country has become racist. Some of the scum of humanity have been memorialized. Entertainers have become philosophers. Socialism/communism have become a beacon of utopian life. Before I entered this zone, there was a Democrat that said “Ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country”. I have evolved from being disappointed to disgusted. There is a difference between intelligence and wisdom. When you are listening to the news, and it’s presented with an abundance of adjectives and adverbs, you are being spoon fed a description to program your opinion. You are being indoctrinated. And worse yet, our education system has become rampant with being taught what to think, rather than how to think. The teachers think it is normal because they were taught that way. (I have more than numerous examples to prove that statement.)

You are so lucky, I am leaving the area and you won’t be subjected to my opinions anymore. But I ask, before you make any social and cultural decisions, please listen with no prejudice to both sides. Do you know the difference between bias and prejudice? Think ahead of the unintended consequences. The Liberals and Progressives of the 60’s would be appalled at today’s mentality. I can’t even imagine what this election’s October surprises are going to be like.
