Red Versus Blue - Polarizing Society

Please don't take the use of colours in this post as being anything related to the symbolism of political party colours, because that's not what it relates to. Colours are symbols. Ambiguous and can literally mean and be interpreted as anything.  Problems always arise when you worship the symbol more so than what it stands for. In these times, polarization refers to being bounced around between diametrically opposed symbols, via colours. So these colours are not a reference to party politics. Here's something quite interesting, and its certainly indicative of a much larger and more complex challenge in society. On the morning of the Uvalde school attack in the United States, in my own community in Regent Park in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and about two to three hours before the actual time of the attack, several people in my community, many of whom I refer to simply as a cult, began harassing me excessively. This started in the wee hours of the morning of 24th of May of this

Imagine...

Imagine they invented a seatbelt that when you wore it, in the event you were in a traffic accident while driving, not only would it save your life, but the lives of others.


Could you imagine how much safer the roads would be for all drivers, not just the ones wearing the seatbelt?


I guess you could say that it would kind of be like a vaccine, couldn't you?


So if you had one of these special seatbelts and you were a driver, would you wear it? 


Consider that wearing it isn't only saving your own life but the lives of others who might actually be harmed when involved in an accident with you. 


It would be selfish not to wear that kind of a seatbelt, wouldn't it?


In all irony, seatbelts became mandatory in Canada during my lifetime, back in the 1970s/1980s. There were many who opposed them, claiming they were an obstacle to their freedom. There were protests and a lot of resistance but eventually everyone started wearing them and more and more lives were saved as a result.


Well you could use the same argument for vaccines.


Have a good weekend,
