Sure it sounds like a new Starwars movie, if only one that made logical sense. Opps, side tracked into dreams of a well written plot…. But the truth be told if we look at the really scary facts that there is a dark and horrific power that has been rising and it is one that has to be taught. We don’t need to question its existence as it is all around us and at every corner. It is teaming with some of the greatest teachers that the world has ever seen. Emboldened but the mass media that is also a teacher of children when parents refuse to allow the innocence of a child to foster into a well groomed adult. Who then the parents wonder why there are such horrific children. We only need to look inward to find the persons to blame.
While you might think that I am blowing this out of proportion and creating out of nothing. But if you did then you are blind to what is going on in the world today. Right now we are seeing in all of the developed countries of the world laws that are being passed to make it a crime to complain. To make a stand in be heard in mass gatherings. Right now in the US there are police who are killing unarmed citizens and the people are saying WTF! But when they do they are met with Police attacking them for the desire to hold the police accountable for their actions. We also see courts refusing to hold them accountable for their actions.
We can also see that we are voting in monsters in powerful positions. Who at every turn restrict true freedom of any group that is not like them or stands in the way of their narcissistic natures. Which are only fed by their insatiable greed. Yet we still wonder why our children mimic the very actions we are repulsed by. We even have seen the rise of the internet keyboard monster that is more than happy to expel their vile hate at every chance. But are surprised when they are confronted by their actions. We have seen it in religious leaders who have ignored their idolized leader who once wrote about peace and kindness. Their congregations like their leaders perpetuate this hate at every turn installing it into the angelic innocence of their children without remorse for their actions.
Yet we soften the terms of calling out this hate by using soft words like Homophobic, Transphobic, TERF, Confused, Mislead, and even Dislike. Why do we do this? We do this to avoid hurting their feelings and being considerate and compassionate towards them. Even though they refuse to do the same for each person that they direct their hatred towards.
How do we combat this dark presence? That has continued to grow in the light were it once only festered in the darkness. We stop allowing the use of the soft words or phrases. We return to the Truth behind the powerful words in our languages use of such words like Bigot, Zealot, Racist, Extremist, Abuser, and even Fanatic. We stop referring to the usage of examples such as calling a person a Nazi or the equivalent of Hitler. As those have been used to a point where the ownership is part of what has empowered the darkness of hate and those who wield it.
We call it out at every turn by using such power filled words. As by doing so the person to whom we direct it at must make a justification for their very actions. When that person attempts to sidestep the label we reenforce the usage of the term we used in the first place by suggesting that they review the term we have called them. Then we walk away no continuing the engagement with this person as the last words said must remain the most powerful and impactful above all others. We must continue with demanding education be fair and equal for all. Not allowing the leaders who have sided with hate. We must also stop making excuses for those who are filled with hate. We must stop voting in the lesser of two evils and demand a return to the age of heroes who have lifted rather than tearing down to lift themselves. We must vote with our heart in hopes that we can find a leader to whom will fill that role and execute it with honesty and compassion. Until we start and stay ever focused we will continue to chase to repair the damage that the powers of Hate have caused. We need to rise and be the heroes that we desire to find at every turn hoping that they will lead us into a better future.
The Heroes that you are looking for is the one staring at you in the mirror.
