I found the true answer.
I love when people say we all are equal. We must do some kind of cross culture talk to better know each other and achieve a common understanding. Then I start thinking, what the F…, we are taking the wrong road here. You know what we have in common….our differences!! We are different!! I said it, I found the answer.
Imagine if in a same society all where equal, apart from being damn boring the society as a whole would collapse. If everybody could do the same type´s of jobs, equal everybody equal. How do you sustain a society like that is beyond my comprehension. You need, carpenters, you need people who are skilled labour to build houses, electricians, you need gays and anti gays, vegetarians and unvegetarians( I think I just invented a word) because it would take all the fun out of it if PETA wasn´t around. Specially the woman of PETA who I don´t know why they all seem to be hot. And where would dissention be, where would arguments about these being better than the other thing be? And that is how societies work in it´s best form. When nobody is equal, in respect to genre and respect to social status.
Now this cross culture talk about how to best communicate with other cultures. Sounds great at the surface. But when you get to the nitty gritty details, societies and cultures are so different, that there is no way of reconciliation some things that in my culture is the norm and in other cultures they find it disgusting. So it eventually ends up in an argument saying how disgusting you people are while the other say´s not you are the ones living in the stone ages.
Different is the only thing we have in common as humans. Plus I have to get it in there, that “I´m so sorry apologetic run around the world tour” by Mr.O, didn´t seem to go to well. Look at the freaking world now, it´s much worst than before. They would lead you to belief that America has regained the “pardon” of the world, that in the world´s eyes American is now good when before with Cowboy Bush was the worst of the worst. No, America has lost all credibility, they have no respect towards the U.S and that not only affects citizens in the U.S, but the allies of Europe that now we have to lead from the front? When has Europe done that? Last time it was before little mustache Hitler took over the Western hemisphere and on his way decided to kill everybody on sight.
Hey, if Mr.O really felt so bad about America and it´s stance in the world, he could at least have some reservations and not go on a campaign rally around the world to apologise for them. That makes the U.S weak, that makes countries in Europe fearful, and why do you think Europe doesn´t immpose harsher sanctions on Russia, because we look at the U.S,we see that there are only red lines that the president is putting up and the others don´t do but cross them over and over again and we figured, hey, we have economic ties with Mr.Putin, we shall play both sides here, we are not that dumb,specially since we don´t have the military might to scare this guy.
I remember when Bush was mocked when he said “that he had looked into Putin´s eyes and he had seen his soul”. You know what, I found that funny too, but at the end of the day he kept in Poland the defense missile system which the Polish part of NATO where more than happy to have those weapons as a deterrant. To me, it´s good diplomacy. You praise the enemy in public, but behind Mr.Putin knew those freaking missles where there, a good reminder that Cowboy Bush wasn´t to be pushed around and NATO countries had the backing of the U.S. Mr O, comes to power does an apology tour to try to make everybody feel good,everybody inclusive, and takes out those missels and long in behold Crimea is gone for the Russians. Why Crimea? There´s rich gas to be exploited on the shores. Gas is a source of energy therefore makes money and demand, money is traded as well as demand hence Mr. Puttin has the upper arm.
The only thing we humans have in common is that we are different, be it for good or for bad. Most of the times turns out to be for the good if you weight it in a scale. Since we are not perfect. That´s the truth. I had a moment of inspiration and had to write it down. It all came flowing.
Stay Frosty gents and gentesses.
Well said! You’re quite right you know, equality is a fool’s errand if “equality” means equal and the same. Nothing in the world is equal. We are all different and it is our differences that make us so wonderful.
people tend to confuse not being equal to being inferior and that is just not the case. Our difference if we channel them well as a society is what it makes us work as a whole.
No such thing as equality, it´s an overused name by politicians, and if framed correctly by them, whoever says no about equality it´s inmediately considered someone bad. If you think it through, you realise how politicians skillfuly manipulate the word and the dialogue around that word.
You nailed it. In fact, the whole attempt to make things “equal” is actually offensive to those of us being perceived as being “inferior.”
Once in a while a source of inspiration comes
More often than you give yourself credit for. I have received many emails after all. 😉
Well said, as always!
You said this so well. We ARE equal in our differences.
You summarised it perfectly
Keep the good stuff going man
Same goes for you
Totally true!! Like i called u lame the other day for that post 🙂 🙂 and how you think i am from stone age!!! 🙂 !! btw you seem to be very busy this days
I agree – we are not only equal, but totally unique in our differences & that is what makes the world go ’round. Speaking of Russia, I read in the paper the other day that Russia has signed a deal with China to supply natural gas to the Chinese – a 30-yr deal worth $400 billion . . .
Great post Mr. Priest!! 🙂
Thank you Sadie
