Subject: RE: Republican or Conservative folk singers
mmmm piss and wind, Karma good people, No one is truly objective and everyones political views are informed by their society and their perceived place in it. Right and Left have despots and politicians. Actually, I think most human beings are benevolent, some are not and use whichever of the two devices suffice to gain power over their society to enable them to improve their and their offspring to gain an advantageous position regarding the rest. It is that inequity that causes discord most off which falls on deaf ears, some of the benevolent people with a conscience reach a position where they have a platform and use it to draw attention to the inequity. Some in that audience will empathise and recognise the condition being pointed out, others will feel very uncomfortable because their conscience agrees with the sentiment but has too much to lose to embrace it and some will be re-inforced in their doctrine and opinions and use it as an excuse to be more extreme.
Forget about left and right and examine just why you are offended? Accept that some people are different and learn to live with it. To react out of chagrin maybe suggests one hasn't thought it through properly, we are better than that, much better than that.
