I rarely visit far left sites. I don't believe what I do because I'm reacting to the "progressives". I've simply come to my conclusions about the issues by looking for the truth. So why make myself angry? I was just doing a little internet research for a project I'm working on, and I found myself over here.
Seems Woman of Abomination stepped into it today. Deep liberal doo-doo. The whole abortion debate, mixed in with the free speech issue. The post itself is juvenile, and hardly worth Woman's time of course, but the comments! Oh my!
Apparently reason, logic, and free-speech are not allowed in these circles unless they support the "correct" (meaning "progressive") way of thinking.
Simply put, the left has decided to use Nineteen-Eighty-Four techniques, to bring about their Brave New World. Pretty scary.
I knew all of this of course, I just never actually had the stomach to go to one of these sites and jump in.
Blechh. I feel like I'm about to barack on my keyboard I'm so wound up.
Update: (Getting deep here:)
"So much of life is about understanding our differences and being open to perspectives that our vastly opposed to ours."
Yes Romi! I was thinking on this before I even rolled out of bed this morning. What we have with the internet is a unique ability to interact and exchange ideas like never before, all over the world and from every human spectrum. We could ring in the neo-Renaissance by interacting in an adult way, but so many times we choose to spit on each other like kids in a sandbox. It's truly sad that we've chosen to take this amazing opportunity and profane it by turning it into a tacky shock jock show.
