Seems pretty much that people can either get offended by anything these days or find anything offensive to others.
It´s self-censorship promoted by the same control system that abuses basically everybody on a daily basis. As long as people get offended by petty details in the big picture of things, well, then people are certainly too occupied to focus on the big picture and the big picture, you should know.
What have we.
Folks that won’t mark 9.11 because it can be offensive to Muslims.
First it’s a misdirection of guilt. I would have some sympathy for that offensiveness if the statement was: “We can’t hold a ceremony of remembrance of 9.11, since we will offend the Israelis, The House of Saud and the Bush family.”
Some got offended by Yoga classes for the disabled.
Some got offended because in Scandinavia band aids are beige and not brown.
Some got offended because the actors are white. Well, it is not a documentary.
The list is long but it is the dynamic that is very interesting.The dynamic in this being offended meme is to gag you. The dynamic in this being offended meme is to have you gag yourself.
It has a name: Repressive Tolerance
Maybe don’t go there to discover your offended side. It is disempowering.
The goal being that everybody put a load of cotton in their mouths, speaking with two tongues. Doesn’t sound pretty and it is very hard to understand.
This world is piled up with emotional double-talk – very few dare speak their candid mind anymore and thereby express what is really on their mind. Actors, do we want that after all the mileage we have behind us seeking our core honesty, whether it be political, gender issues, different race issues, spiritual issues.
People I meet go: “I really have this on my mind but I dare not say it out loud.”
What is this: East Germany under Stasi? North Korea?
This world needs your voice.
Remember: There is a huge difference in being honest and brutally honest. Being brutally honest is to take a person or his beliefs down – without any concerns of crossing his deeper inner boundaries.
By being honest you expand your core the right metaphysical way.
People can take it or leave it.
But you say who you are and where you are.
Lying is not restricted to telling a good (fantasy) story. You lie when you do not tell who you are and hide yourself under the skin that would only suit a snake and as you know – they seem to change that skin regularly.
Do not let this get to you. Society is de-spiritualizing because spirituality is what the same society really fears.
Spiritual as in Genuine, Human, Caring, Loving, Fierce, Warrior.
That is what they are droning down on the killing floor.
