Historical Ignorance on Display

Historical ignorance


Much of the unrest seen today is obviously from the lack of having a true historical perspective and there is obviously little consideration given to the original concept forming societal norms and why those norms should or should not change or be changed as time goes on. This lack of knowledge can be attributed to the failings of the public educational system in present use by not having enough emphases on the past and how far we as a society have come, and then it must be asked what the goal is.

Many examples can be sited going back in history with other societies can be pointed to as both failures and successes, however there only needs to be a few to illustrate the issues of today.

In the case of the United States, what is it that is the main concern that should encompasses us all in achieving an ultimate goal of freedom and prosperity? Should it be an escape from tyranny and prejudice, and the feeling of equality that comes from that freedom, or slavery to a certain point of view that may be based in selfishness and greed such as a monarchy or totalitarianism?

Like many things apparent with the actions of a few, any or all meaning of certain events are memorialized using some methods like statuses has been lost. Even though confederates solders may be some of those memorialized by those statues it has to be known why they are memorialized to begin with, knowing the true meaning of democracy in the first place would help tremendously, and fighting for what a person believes in no matter which side they may be on is the bases for that democracy.

The very same things present day protestors claim to be in favor of, they wish to destroy.
It also has to be understood that slavery in any form is not a virtuous way to live but in reality so called slaves in the past where not owned by racist as claimed in many cases, for these oppressed and misused individuals could have been and often were other ethnic groups too. Take the Jews, the Irish and Chinese for example who were delegated certain jobs and also the Italians, they were also an oppressed and abused group, and in many cases still are.
And often it was their own kind who sold their fellow man into slavery, a practice still being undertaken today. The U S being singled out as being the only group guilty of such behavior is invalid as there are far more groups around the world that subscribed to the same practice including some blacks or Negroid societies which makes the argument being made in the country disingenuous?

In the case of Native Americans, most fail to understand that many tribe where and had been at war with each other for centuries long before the foreign settlors came, it was not always the case the colonist action caused that was abuse. Although there is a saying that is relevant, which outlines much of the abuse and mistrust? And that is “Hi I am from the Government and I am here to help” which in many cases that help end with disastrous results.

So what is the goal that some are trying to achieve it would be good to know, but don't they realize they are only harming themselves.

How complacency and Corruption Go Hand in Hand

Complacency and corruption servers to encourage the same goal!

Keeping it simple with no clutter as stated before in other posts is simply the easiest way to recognize the true meaning of anything including this article in determining if it’s good or bad. Both complacency and corruption spoken of separately in past postings has no different meaning when being coupled together here, however in this post they are lumped together so as to show their correlation and comparison to each other and further these mattes or not a right or left issue, but a position that everyone should be concerned with.

Complacency is at least partly responsible for a number of problems with any political decision; one is allowing the steady chipping away of personal rights and freedoms through certain acts allowed by that complacency, where those acts allowed or often undertaken by a minority instead of the majority and in many case disguised somehow as helping to create a safer environment, however they usually don’t accomplish that goal.
For those who see complacency as a way of life by not getting involved, it is from that complacency which allows those with bad intent to gain certain influence, then those individuals are given a pass by that complacency to affect everyone’s lives. So those neighbors who don’t get involved can negatively affect your existence by allowing certain things to take place because of that complacency. At this point nothing more needs to be said about complacency except it’s a bad choice to act in that manner.
Corruption also comes from complacency and corruption will allow many kinds of bad acts and intent to flourish because of that complacency along with any corruption that may exist, it must be noted that in the end corruption helps to make every person’s life less tenable not better as some think. Corruption can be seen by its inconsistency of providing for everyone’s needs, and in the actual negative outcome which is caused by its use, such as by a special interest groups gaining an improper advantage for a few and not the whole, it really isn’t that corruption exists since it can be seen that it does, it’s the outcome of corruption that’s important.
Corruption it’s self may or may not be a criminal act which some elude to even though it’s engaged in knowingly, the cause could also be present through some sort of misguidance earlier by some reasonable parties who are also corrupt in some manner in giving that guidance or perhaps from faulty education by instructing poorly and inaccurately in some way by a an unnamed instructor creating that misguidance.
In the final analysis the cause and effects of complacency and corruption should be evident to any intelligent person that is the true issue.

Breakdown of a Society

Breakdown of social order and society as a whole

To address the issue of misconduct within a group there is perhaps one vital element which causes that breakdown of any society, which is the lack of any responsibility. Also the concern should be what is considered a responsible move by some, that angle is often misunderstood on what is that proper course to follow in being responsible.
There is a guide that would aid in that decision where it was established eons ago and touted by our fore fathers as the basis for societal norms.

Most likely the area’s that should be considered in drawing any conclusions on what is the proper method of responsibility towards others undertaken by any group is just by:

Asking yourself what is it that we all seek?
(a) Do we seek safety? (How can any of us be safe if there is no safety net available?)
(b) Do we seek prosperity? (How can you seek and hang on to prosperity when you’re not safe)
(c) Do we seek the feeling of community? (How can you have a sense of belonging with any cooperation from others?)
(d) A clear understanding on why this nation was formed in the manner it was originally? (Without a clear understanding of who you are as a nation then how can you get to where you’re going?)
Then the only way these areas can be totally fulfilled and gain all you seek is by treating others the way you would wish to be treated yourself and through gaining a proper education, and not having a selfish intent of self-gratification that is not earned.

People need to make better decisions and be loss self- centered, and give more consideration to others needs.

The question is: What do you want? a world full of fear or the ability to go anywhere without that fear, then the answer is simple act properly with good intentions.
