Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
But obviously corporations are people too.
There’s a somewhat new movement in California where people seek to ban certain words, in order to prevent highly emotional negative responses. The logic here is that certain verbal and non-verbal actions called microaggressions, can trigger mentally unstable persons to do wacky things.
In the old days, bullies had a complete lockdown on nerd rights. Victims of bullying coped and persevered. They honed their wits to become smarter than their tormentors.
But now, everything has changed. People are a lot more cerebral, and therefore bullying is no longer merely contained to simple physicality. Bullying has evolved into words, and as such, it is now a vicious battle between the smart and the smartest. You can say that the old form of bullying fathered this new form of bullying. That’s where these new microaggression bans come in.
It’s an indication that people haven’t yet developed a proper solution to this newly realized destructive phenomenon. A stop-gap measure to contain the spread of bullying.
It’s a movement that can prove to be beneficial I believe. Talking about it is the first step. It’s important to teach young millennials the value of respect and dignity.
To not exclude anybody based on arbitrary and outdated standards.
Microaggressions enacted upon mentally unstable persons can only exacerbate the problem. And the last thing anyone can count on, is the unstable person having the ability to process logic and reasoning.
It’s unfortunate that this isn’t receiving more media attention. I believe that it can help shape a more unified and stable society. Just by having something as simple as a national infrastructure to provide help, and counseling. To reach out to people not just in California, but all over the world. From the estranged family member, to the antisocial Facebook buddy, even to that wacky paranoid neighbor who has CCTV cameras installed on your property.
Even if it is to do something as simple as de-stigmatizing class imbalances, it will help nurture a stronger future generation. It can pave the way to healthy person to person relationships. Less income inequality. More job opportunities. Less people turning to crime to raise their starving families. No more thieves breaking into your house and stealing your property.
We should come together as a community, to help people with their problems. Their struggle with their emotions. We should stand up and be the shining beacon in the darkness. The light in the shadows. The protector of the disadvantaged. The heroes that we claim to be, lest we be labelled as hypocrites, and deniers of freedom and liberty.
