Unreasonable people are dangerous
Rarely do a political post, but here we are.
In Underworld, the final words of onea the main character’s, “My will is done, regardless.”
When Bush was president, he made some jaw-droppingly poor choices, yes. But he also quietly tripled AIDS help to Africa. $9 billion to a continent where the average adult survives on $1,968 annually. He deserves recognition of that. But the people that hate him don’t wanna hear it.
Now it’s flipped with Obama.
Consider the health care bill; the actual form of the bill’s closest to the one that Nixon – the prototypical Republican – tried and failed to pass in 1974.
It’s a universal health care paid by a sliding scale to help small business-owners and entrepreneurs, the backbone of the Republican party. Here’s Nixons plan in his own words.
The current plan’s shockingly similar.
And yet, cause it was introduced by the Democratic party, it’s denounced by the same party that introduced it in 1974.
Prejudice in its simplest form, has nuthin to do with race, creed, or religion.
It has to do with making an uninformed decision.
Not married to any one ideology, my decisions are made on the best available information at the time. It’s a reasoned way to live.
Stay away from those that are convinced they’re right. Cause reason has no place in their world. And unreasonable people are dangerous. Insert my fave Nietzsche quote here.
As for health care, don’t care that it’s a Republican bill passed by the Democratic party or vice versa. My will’s done, regardless.
