Pride

Pride is a weird thing. It can be something that some people are relaiable of in their daily life. Sometimes it can be your greatest enemy, it all depends on what your vieuw is on life and everything happening around you.

The meaning of pride is:

  • (noun) A feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements
  • (noun) the achievements of one’s close associates or from qualities or possesions that are widely admired
  • (noun) conciousness of one’s own dignity
  • (verb) being especially proud of a particular quality or skill.

An English theologist, John R.W. Stott, once said “Pride is your greatest enemy, humility is your greatest friend”

Nowadays pride is something that is embedded in the DNA of the world, whereas it used to be seen as an abomination to the community to have pride for things that did nothing to help the community evolve.

Pride and arrogance often tend to hold hands, the one is almost never there without the other, even if it is subconciouss.  If we take a look at the roch and powerfull of this world, you can see the perfect example. They don’t  acknowledge the fact that they also can be wrong sometimes. The moment they get to have a little following they think that they are the best person there is etc. etc. Some can handle it and know how to use it for the good, but how much world leaders are there taht misuse their power and sources?

If we look at all the people that could and still can not be themselves because of the pride that their family has, it is is shocking to see. Especially with us being so evolved, it is almost repulsive that we have not evolved in such a way that everyone can be who and what they want. I’m not talking about being homosexuality, even tho they are some of the most experienced people on this subject. If you look at the old times, there were children that were not accepted into their own family because of the pride of the family. The family would reject the child, that come from from something that was not accepted. Something that the child had no effect on, but was a consequence of it.

Equality, something Trump knows or something he chooses to ignore?

 

Definition of equality for English Language Learners

  • : the quality or state of being equal : the quality or state of having the same rights, social status, etc.

 

 

Equality is a verb that is almost forgotten if you look at the world at this point.

One of the main examples is Trump at the moment. He thinks that by keeping the immigrants out of America so that he can maintain a stable form of work security for the American people. He wants to put a temporary ban on refugees.

One of the main subjects the world connects with Trump is his will to put up a wall to keep Mexico and America separated. He wants to keep the Mexicans not only out of America, but also wants to get the ones in America to go back to Mexico. The already existing border, which is a partial fence (580 miles out of the total 1954 miles) will be a wall.

Thanks to a treaty between the two countries the border can’t be closed all the way with a wall. That goes for the rivers, that means that the border won’t be closed for at least 24 miles in Texas, Arizona.

Workers raise a taller fence along the Mexico-US border

He says that he does it to stop people from illegally entering America. He wants Mexico to pay for the wall (Which from my perspective is rediculous, because why would you pay to be kept out of a place, that your nation’s people want to go to. Not only to live there, but also to visit family etc.)

It is already said that the so called “wall” will not work. Do to it being impractable. It will not reduce the people trying to cross the border. Do to the terrain and cost the wall will not be a succesfull idea to put in practice.

There are more then enough people who are agreeing with Trump to build the wall to keep the mexicans/illegals out of America. It seems a big part of ignorance seeing as the most of the people agreeing peple, are people who also love to go to an mexican restaurant because they love the food or shop in a mexican shop because they have the right products.

Now don’t get me wrong, I know that there are people who have a different reson r opinion about the matter. Everybody has the right to have their own opinion and reasons, obviously.

I think that it is also a large part of ignorance, who says that “the wall” will help. I mean who are you as person to say that someone is not allowed in the country you live in? Who are you to mae choices for others? Would you like it if someone did that for you?

 

Police Violence

police-violence-wordpress

 

It’s sad to see that even after all the things that happened in America, the police still doesn’t take extra caution to protect not only the citizens, but also themselves (from accusations).

So far there have been 842 victims due to the hands of police men. Those are the numbers in the U.S.A. alone, imagine the whole world. They say that the victims are all people who weren’t cooperating, which is highly doubted.

How come there are supposedly so much people that are death by their own fault? If it wasn’t the police they wouldn’t have had such a bad image right now.

Now don’t get me wrong I don’t want to paint a bad picture of the cops, because that is not the point of this article/blog. I just want to give a bit of information and my opinion, feel free to comment to whatever you read.

There are, however, cops who are good, but get judged because of the things that their partners/colleges have done. There will always be good cops, we have to keep that in mind. it’s not like they just let things happen, sometimes there is nothing that they can do.

There are cops being threatened and have people coming to their door step, sometimes for things that they haven’t done or don’t even know about. We keep trying to be our own judge and that is why these things keep happening.

I’m not saying that we should take what is happening just as a regular event, I’m not saying that at all, but the way most of us are reacting isn’t the right way.

How do you want someone to stop hurting your people, if you start to hurt their people?

We have to get out of this mindset, because it’s one of the reasons that things are going this exact way. We can’t be fighting violence with violence and expact there to be love/compassion etc. as an outcome.

Some people say “a tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye” but that’s not they way that this matter should be handled.

Stolen speech

You guys must have heard about the speech of Melania Trump, that was “Inspired by” Michelle Obama’s speech  in 2008.

Now personally I don’t see what Melania actually has done by herself, because even the first line that isn’t marked is almost similar to what Michelle said. Melania even told the CNN (i think) that she didn’t want any help with writing her speech, which means that there was no one that could have done a check-up, which is the reason why nobody is getting fired.

Equal Rights: Reality or Fantasy?

Lately there have been a lot of people having discussions about equal rights, society’s look on it and much more.

One of the things is that there are a lot of people that still have the mentality of the time of slavery. They don’t want to accept the fact that the world changed and some people have the idea that the world is still the same as it was 500 years ago.

These people still believe that they are the upper class of the world and that they are the one’s who “made America great”, when they are the one’s who expelled the “real” people out of America. The one’s who were there from the get go and lived in peace, those were the Indians. They are the original  residents of America. Although many people want to deny the facts, it is what is the truth. The main issue for the people who live there now is that if “real” residents would be given what they deserve, they can’t tell their children about Christopher Columbus, the great “white” man who discovered America. which means that they would have to tell their children how he scared away the Indians and killed many, for his own benefit.

Another thing is that there is a group of people who strongly believe that they are the one’s who own the world and that nobody can take that away from them. They think that everything they do and everyone they meet should be seen as a miracle in life and that they shouldn’t be bothered with “the common human being”. They are convinced of the fact that they are the “perfect” person and that is one of the things that makes the world just a little less pretty, because they don’t think they need to think about their fellow human beings, which is a shame.

On the other hand there are still a lot of “black” people who have what we call a “slave-mentality”. Which means they think that they still need to listen to the “white” men and that they still need to let people use and abuse them. Those things are also an issue, because if I can’t see myself as a free human being, it doesn’t matter who says it to me or what society says about me being free. I will still think the same and that is what they don’t understand. If society tells me that I am a free man, but I can’t see myself doing what i want, without the oppression of the “white” men, then what is the point of a free human being.

There are people who don’t think that it is necessary for us to educate our children in the knowledge of how life could/would be if we would all treat everyone the way they deserve. If we would give our children a good education and a good example, without the oppressed truth, but the real truth, then we have a change of making the world a better place for them. Because just as the “white” man, the “black” men also has parts of their history that they don’t want to share or acknowledge in life.

what to do?

What to do?

The Olympics are here and everyone is busy with all the things that the athletes are achieving. Now don’t get me wrong, they train for this, possibly, their whole lives for this and I am not saying that they shouldn’t be getting rewarded for their hard work, I’m not saying that at all.

What I do want to know is why the Olympic committee choose to make the stadium in parts where they civilization is being malnourished. I get that they ant to give a kind of awareness, but at the same time I have the feeling that they don’t really care about it.

What do you think?

Let me know…

War On Cops?

 

maxresdefault

The only thing you hear on the news, social media etc. these days is “War on cops”.

i am not one to judge, but i think that this should be discussed. There has never been said to be a war on cops, that is what the media is making out of it. Why would we want more people to die, when we know how it feels to lose someone close to us or close to our loved one’s?  We know what it does to us and the people around us.

I would like to point out that there are 64 police deaths vs. 639 civilian deaths this year so far. Which means that there are 9.98 times more civilians being killed then police officers. So with that being said, how is it that the media is saying “War On Cops” ???

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that the lives of the cops don’t matter as much as the life of the civilian, we are all people, regardless of our occupation. I just want to point out that the media is making this a a game, so they can get their money out of it, not caring if it is about real lives or not.

The media is acting as if the only people dying are the cops and we are responsible for it. So they portray us as the one committing a crime, but when it actually happens they act as if they never thought of it that way. Instead they tell us that the person who committed the crime was a “bad” person or something like that.

There has been several news reporters who gave their own opinion during a live broadcast, while they are supposed to be giving an impartial overview of the situation. Which means WITHOUT affecting the judgement/opinion of the viewer. Yet they are not getting a warning or even someone that tells them that they can’t do that. They just get to live their lives, while they May have, not saying it always happens, ruined the person’s life.

Just as the police giving out a photo to the public of the possible shooter of the Dallas shooting. the man who’s picture was spread on the internet will have to live with the consequences for the rest of his life. I’m not saying that they aren’t allowed to make mistakes, they are people too, but if you don’t know for sure, than why do it??? They have to pay him a amount of money and that’s it. If it was someone putting a hunt on the head of a police officer, the person would have been punished way worse.

But let me know what you think about it and how you see it.
