*cries* Why are bigots so stupid?

Like seriously?lol

I was literally having a conversation with someone who REALLY believes that trans people are more of a danger to same sex people, than Catholicism…

Anti-vaxers complaining that they have no Freedoms, while shutting down a Lifeline Book Fair in Canberra. Lifeline is a non-profit organisation that provides free, 24-hour telephone crisis support service in Australia. Volunteer crisis supporters provide suicide prevention services, mental health support and emotional assistance, not only via telephone but face-to-face and online.

They did this on Saturday, our politicians (except for those in charge) aren’t in on the weekends. All they did was make people go back to their home, because they felt unsafe and lose businesses money. I don’t honestly “get” what these people are trying to do. It’s like they WANT businesses to lose money. Yet, they complain about how vaccine mandates will lose businesses money. Canberra, by the way, is the most highly vaccinated State/Territory in Australia.

ACT becomes first Australian state or territory to fully vaccinate 90 per cent of population aged 12 and over against COVID-19

So, they went to the most highly vaccinated State in Australia, to stop mandates, that don’t exist.

And what is WITH these people and they’re all “We have the Science” when they don’t and they don’t even understand what they’re talking about? I had someone try to insult me, who has in the bio “Science is the solution” Say about me “Oh Lolsys a typical lefty, thinks all species should be mixed together in a big mixing bowl” I explained to them (one) calling me a lefty, isn’t an insult. When the other option is to be like them, scared of complete strangers, over the hill bigot, yelling about their freedoms, while taking away completely strangers freedom, with no sense of irony, like themselves. (Two) humans can and do mix with other species. It even has a name. Xenotransplantation, but he knows about that, because he “likes” Science.

I had a good giggle at that one.

1000 Speak for Connection!

In the past I have Blogged a couple of posts regarding a Facebook page called 1000 Voices for Compassion and on the 20th of each month there is a challenge and people write Blog topic based on the topic for that month. In the month of the May the topics “Connection” including reconnection and reconciliation.

So I will literally just write down whatever came to mind when I thought of the word “Connection”.

Connection Prompts For our May Link-up

I think that is a really interesting topic because I find that as a general society rule we are less connected than ever before.  Yet we have all these tools to help us communicate well and efficiently and yet as I have said before we have more of a society that wants to be “right” instead of discussing and talking with one another. You watch people (especially with Twitter) who bully and send death threats to people that they don’t even know. When did this become okay? Why has this become such a problem? How can someone be so disconnected that threatening and telling people that should “go and kill” themselves, became acceptable?

I have watched many “fights” on Facebook. You have many people who will literally write “who cares”. How poignant is that?! Clearly not them (that is a whole other topic though on people who want to write “who cares” and “this isn’t news” instead of scrolling past the topic). I have asked people on Facebook directly why they felt the need to write that statement, why didn’t they just scroll past and get on with their day. Why do they think what they like is so much more and better than other? Yet, when people ask them, they get really upset?

Have we lost the connection with what is really important, how can we get it back, whose to blame, is there one area to blame or is it just everything these days? Have we lost the connection with the earth, the planet, our basic simple ways. Have we become to diverse to be able to really handle and accept the differences in others? Are we not ready to CONNECT with the other different souls on this planet? Is it too much for us to handle right now.

I believe that it is time to reconnect with and within ourselves. Go back to the basics and take a long look at what we are doing and what kind of legacy and story do we want to leave behind. I believe that we need to reconnecting with ourselves every know and then, to take a hard look at ourselves and asked ourselves “What is important to us”. Do these people really want to leave the story behind of them threatening and telling people to die behind the cowardice of a screen?

Take that walk back in a nature, kick up the leaves during autumn. Mediate…Listen to what our souls are telling us to do, telling us the path that we should take. Shut out the world of the technology. and connect with our spirits again. I think that we need to reconnect within ourselves again.
