Nationalism out in the open, prejudice and xenophobic tendencies. Ideologies and religions, that the nations and countries are in for. Narcissism, egotistical standards and values. Self love for the country, at what cost? One religion to be heard on the radio. It’s like a selective democracy. Christianity, a fantasy, like all other religions, that fucks with your sanity. Prayers everyday, for what purpose? A hope for a better future after death? Because we live in a society where people pray for a better day. What does that say about our situation on this planet today. We don’t live in the middle ages, it like we’re going backwards, each page for page, we’re going to the past generations. I’m for freedom of speech, because together as one, we can better the world.
Each individual has a story to tell that needs to be heard and a message to be delivered. We need to embrace the perspectives that come out and respect the individuality of the person. The principle behind an inclusive society is hearing and understanding myriad ideologies that are coming out and letting people realise its worth. Only when you allow people to open up, you will relish the wonderful stories they have within and spread the word.
The best feeling in the world is to come out without any fear of being judged and being surrounded by people who may have substantially varying ideology but are able to connect on an intellectual level. It’s completely okay to feel vulnerable and feel anxious but it’s more important to actually embrace it and accept the fact. Nonetheless, you have to stand by what you say and be ready to be challenged and don’t worry for being correct as what matters internally is your values and their ethical boundaries.
Its so weird how hard sleep has been lately. These flowers are pretty.
Lots have been on my mind since eating #flesh and #blood again. Its weird but I can see how #ideologies work now that I literally almost starved. I had three pieces of pizza earlier tonight and I enjoyed it.
I am ready for all that I want. If that is selfish Call me an ohstar. Suck it. The world is mine.
I am grounded and my heart is not so cold now yet I can see 20/20 why i was blind. Now I am seeing things full circle and the spiral of my life lately is starting to make sense. Stepping out of natures circle I was dancing with my shadow. Sometimes arguing. Mostly denying that she was there a bit while also knowing that she was but I was ignoring it. Red flags. I know. Yet i am greatfull for all the sillyness that was sad but required. Fire burns, but it refines. 💛☀️🦋888issooooooogrr8t
There have been many public opinion polling about pro-independent or pro-unification ideologies. Even people surrounding us ask about what kinds of status you prefer.
I remembered the first time that the issue was put to the vote when I studied in the elementary school. I didn't even understand the options after the question, Taiwanese, Chinese and the status que. Most students in the class chose the status que in cross-strait relations, so did I. Now I know that I have been into Davy Jones' Locker.
The Status quo means the present situation, that is , not the past or future. But the truth is , things change every single moment. The inflammatory remarks and fake news manipulate the bias of the society. The astroturfing confused majority of opinions in the Internet, newspapers or other media.
What makes you a Taiwanese? Your native language, the place you live in or the your own ideologies? No one can decide others' identity , so we won't put this into a referendum. Taiwanese Public Opinion Foundation took a poll of pro-independent or pro-unification in 2016. People chose the status quo in 24.6% . The data has been stable during the past decade.
Next time you see this kind of poll , just ignore it , that's a red herring.
Why the left wing?
Not only becouse of the wealth distribution and inequality the right practices, but the old saying “if you work hard you will get it” is bullshit, atleast in the times we live now. Well let me rephrase it! The percentage of those archiving such accomplishments complete about 1% of the world population, and i might add, you still need to be very lucky to be given the golden ticket. Free market? Sure! Unregulated? Fuck no!, creating dirty money over giving our next generation clean air to breath? F*** NO!. Calling something we’ve be doing since the dawns of civilization (immigration) dangerous? running propaganda to smear foreigners? Sorry cant agree. Just a snipet or a very short post on what i disagree with, not calling any one a sheep but, is it that hard to grasp?
In the end, who gave us the freedom to write posts like this?
