It always comes down to that doesn't it, the various infringements that are made by the day all done in the name of some better good. The violence they need is supposed to be just the right amount, just the perfect suitable initiation of force to keep everyone safe.
Group A needs to be given a monopolization on violence, to be excused from being expected to uphold any sense of morality, to engage in actions against individuals that it in-return would lock people up for doing themselves.
A system of hypocrisy and violence from the onset, a clear disregard for consent.
It's only an idea that people hold in their mind, that's all the world around us is after all but the realization of our ideas, and this one is an ancient story of authority that people continue to believe in and tell themselves.
Bondage being sold as safety isn't a new concept.
Maybe the idea of what freedom should be to some, is too grand.
What a crazy idea for anyone to consider that they themselves might be free, that no one else has or should have authority over them.
That society might hope to organize itself voluntarily and peacefully.
It isn't and never has been about building utopia.
And it isn't only about believing results might be better with the alternative idea, even though they surely might.
It is about preferring peace to violence, wanting to believe that you can get better results with love than you can with force.
Have a little fun and dare to imagine a much freer humanity.
Safety for individuals shouldn't include an erosion of their individual liberty.
When your consent is violated do you feel safe?
How has the concept of freedom become so watered down?
Individuals can decide for themselves and don't need anyone else to decide for them. We don't have to allow others to decide for us that past and current methods of violence will always be necessary. Every individual has a right to decide to support the promotion of peace or violence.
Those who want to initiate violence against others will sell the idea on the premise of doing it for safety, for what other excuse would you really expect them to give.
We shouldn't be surprised when we realize again and again that the various problems we face in society that involve millions of people are not going to be efficiently dealt with or resolved, by one group that's given themselves the right to force everyone to follow their edicts.
