I haven’t been very active with this blog in quite a while except for the occasional post here and there. It is not as though I do not have time, I’d say it is due more to apathy, laziness and most recently World of Warcraft.
When I was traveling overseas, single and studying languages the world was an exciting place and I was bursting with thoughts I wanted to write about. But these past few years the motivation to write is on life support due to two young boys, an overdose of information turned entertainment churned out by the media and I’ve had my fill of inane, uninformed comments about world events on the social media. Over time it seemed much more preferable to spend my time leveling up my Warlock.
What I’d like to focus on in this post is social media and a serious lack of empathy for refugees fleeing war and strife. It is amazing to see how quickly people can become self centered, jingoist and generally unpleasant depending on the nonsense vomited out by national media.
Then we see people like Petra Laszlo – a Hungarian whore kicking and tripping refugee kids! She is the Hungarian version of Anne Coulter two women who – if this was a just world – should be launched into the sea for shark food. These two represent the worst of humanity and rightly deserve the scorn they receive.
The refugees are human beings and through no fault of their own are simply trying to survive and provide a much better life for their families. Should anyone be put in their position we would all do the same.
The way refugees are being treated is something that will be looked back upon with shame by humanity. This type of behavior shows that we really aren’t really better than the animals we are descended from.
Well, as I said my motivation is on life support and I think I’ll end this post now.
