No problem

Post by oftenwrong on Fri Sep 29, 2017 12:51 pm

I don't have a problem ...

with Homosexuals. As long as they don't "groom" children.

with Vegetarians and Vegans, so long as they resist the urge to wreck butchers shops.

I can admire, and perhaps envy a little, people with a strong religious belief. Until they
begin to regard non-believers as unfit to share the Earth.

I'm not bothered by billionaires, they have their own problems to deal with (e.g. Who are your real friends?)
But I do object to them raiding the Company Pension fund to buy a bloody yacht.

I really can't abide people who evidently have such a low opinion of themselves that they can
only be happy denigrating everyone else.

Similarly, I don't see the point of electing someone to Parliament
who is only going to represent their own selfish interests. (You know who I mean.)

The biggest problem seems to lie in our fear of strangers. Animals kill for food,
but why are humans who are not cannibals so eager to destroy each other?

bit of a misrepresentation of homosexuality there OW - I  think if you look into it, the majority of those who 'groom' children are not homosexuals - although gays, like the rest of humankind, often prefer a slightly younger partner, which may lead to the occasional relationship with someone nominally below the age of consent

why are humans who are not cannibals so eager to destroy each other?

- a really good question - the tendency seems almost to be innate - those who don't share it seem unusual - could it have some sort of (possibly obsolete) survival value?
