You know, I find something very scary about the attitude of those who would scare us with fears of a left-wing conspiracy to implement a one-world government under the UN. Such people are highly vocal about their ‘freedom’, their ‘right not to be told what to do,’ and how they simply won’t stand for any of it.
The thing that, I think, scares me most about such a view is the possibility that it might hold sway, and we’d end up in a world in which I’m forced to do things that these people want.
Oh, wait, I’m already in their crazy, topsy-turvy, insanity-ruled world. My mistake.
Since nothing much else makes sense, it won’t hurt if I add a picture of a friend of mine (now, sadly, passed away) posing in New York with someone who is, in his world, giving a positive message that, on this side of the Pond, means something entirely different (originally referring, so legend has it, to English bowmen at Agincourt taunting the enemy).
To me, my friend’s grin says it all — even though she later admitted that she didn’t understand what I was whittering on about (but then, she’s Canadian, so go figure) :)
Communication: “a difficult concept. It is not logical”, as Saavik once said. OK, she was talking about humo(u)r; and I was trying to talk about freedom. So, sue me.
Have a good day.
