Hate Speech

One of the ironies (or perhaps hypocrisies) of hate speech is that it seldom considered hate speech when you agree with it.

“It has been said that Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others that have been tried.”

– Sir Winston Churchill.

Of course, we wouldn’t know.
Since we live in a Republic, not a Democracy.
Democracy means that you are bothered with every little detail.
Like where the assembly will be going for lunch.

But we are Americans, we ain’t got time for that shit.
So we “hire” a guy to do the job for us.
He may be a senator, or a congressman, or even a president.
And we may be idiots for hiring them purely on the basis of “we like them” instead of “will he pay attention to what I say he should vote for”.
Especially when we tell them nothing but, Go to the capital and make everything be my way.

But, we are closer now than we have ever been in our lives.
That little phone in your pocket could be a actual device of democracy.
Just like being on Facebook, only more meaningful and less entertaining.

Just a thought.
Don’t tell “THEM” I told you though.

About Rick Wasserman

Here is my second round of blogging as my first round in Blog 1 seems to have evaporated. I have been writing for decades. Most of it is crap, but you probably figured that out on your own.
