The Modern World: A Paradise for Closed Minds!

Leave a comment

As I have gone through my life so far I have seen a great change in the world around me, this may be because I am growing older but I suspect it is more that our world has changed!

I have said before that our modern world now is a paradise and pitched towards a stupid populous rules by a few of slightly less stupid people but it is far worse than this as these people are closed minded to a point of being fearful of anything that is new.

It shows in the every day politics and religions of the world especially in the West which are now dominated by those who are conservative by nature who look backward to values which were even archaic decades ago. Such views including the sanctity of marriage, openly anti-homosexual and even extreme nationalism as shown in Eastern Ukraine recently by so called Pro-Russian Activists.

In the end our world around us is getting more closed minded and conservative to a point at some point it will stagnate and collapse much as the Roman Empire did in it’s time.

Those of us who are still open minded, passionate for change and the such should start to push the world forward again before it is too late!

Sort of Says It All!

What is always very sad on my journal is the fact people read the lighter entries but seam to avoid the more politically orientated entries almost with passion. Though I should not be surprised as it sort of reflects the modern world around me that is a world full of people who more concerned with the trivial rather than real issues.

I think I am not only one both in the United Kingdom who has noticed this singular fact about our society but as always the comment falls on deaf ears sadly exactly as the people who hold the power here want.

Who needs an actively oppressive government for the few to keep power when apathy rules a society!

A Fine Line to Tread!

What is coming out of the United States with the controversy of Guns after the series of shootings last year and continuing problems with guns they are having there with yet another story about a school teacher stopping a potential shooting at yet another school in United States that there is a fine line you have to tread with guns and their control.

Any sensible person in any society knows that weapons and society do not mix be it guns, knives and the such and know weapons always lead to violence even outside of the criminal fraternity!

So as a society they put in place controls on the weapons both legally and as a society as a whole in so much society as a whole demeans it unacceptable to carry such weapons. Those who break this rule are punished by the legal system with the full support of society has a whole.

In these societies weapon control works because society as a whole backs it, though like anything it is not fool proof but certainly reduces the effect of the weapons on society in general.

But when a society, as in United States, who are unwilling to give up the weapons to a point of justifying the carrying of the weapons they have crossed a fine line which weapon control is simply not going to work mainly because they accept the presence of weapons in their society.

They may make the right noises when innocents are killed using weapons within their society but they are unwilling to remove the cause because they are unwilling to give up the weapon which did the killings.

If as a society is unwilling to get rid of these weapons as a whole they are going to have to accept that such killings are going to happen. It is hard thing to say but history bares this out time and time again!
