SEEKING JUSTICE & The Work it Takes – Grayed Out Podcast EP 14

 

EP 14 – SEEKING JUSTICE & The Work It Takes.

This week… I’m gonna talk about Justice… That blind lady with the Sword & Scale, the one who is supposed to meet out evenly dispensed, weighed, considered EQUAL justice.. and the WORK it actually takes to get to the point of JUSTICE.

First let’s start with this nonsense picture

The ALLY negative

Here is the original MLK Jr. Quote out of “Letters From Birmingham Jail (1963)”:
“First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says “I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can’t agree with your methods of direct action;” who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a “more convenient season.”

I’ve been mulling over this thought the past few weeks and it’s something that struck me, I can’t remember if it’s a quote I heard or just something that popped into my overworked brain one day.
JUSTICE without ORDER is just VENGEANCE… and Vengeance is not Justice.

Vengeance is a liar – it offers a false sense of satisfaction and only delivers emptiness. (I’m not talking about paybacks for some stupid situation your ex caused or whatever either… so lets not get this twisted)

You see the cold hard truth about Vengeance is; it’s just another rabid form of injustice, and it can be easily swung in all directions mowing down whomever stands in the way… Getting True Justice, takes work, and patience and endurance and is worth every bit of it… vengeance is like a sad substitution it’s the cubic zirconia of the Justice realm. It’s a shortcut and it will rob us all of true satisfaction.

As always, I’d love any feedback.

And Now You’ve been Grayed Out….

Everything’s Cancelled! The Circular Stupidity of Cancel Culture – Grayed Out Podcast EP 13

EP 13 – Everything’s Cancelled; The Circular Stupidity of Cancel Culture

WELCOME TO THE GRACELESS HELL our society is turning into where it is better to half listen and fully destroy anyone who dares say a dumb thing.

Is There anything worse in the world right now than Cancel Culture? OH YES.. REVENGE CANCEL CULTURE!

Because what was originated by the uber religious right and became a hallmark of the progressive left is now being re-adopted by the conservatives and now we just get to cancel EVERYONE… beware.. you may be next.
STAB GIRL and KAREN(s) – this depends on which of which notorious KAREN videos you’ve watched.

Harvard Stab Girl – https://youtu.be/MdgILrJYF00

Seattle Cut Off “Karen”: https://youtu.be/jcFtg6ZRmms
They sound like a horrible super villain pairing but they aren’t they are the mainstay characters of cancel culture now and somehow Twitter is becoming real life.

HARD TRUTHS
Small Groups of REALLY LOUD people are controlling the narrative and we are buying it.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND: you have ZERO right to remain unoffended in life and in the words of Jordan Peterson on Real Time w/ Bill Maher – If you are talking about difficult issues and thinking about that, you are bound to be offensive.

Bill Maher defined political correctness as “The Elevation of sensitivity over truth”
Peterson goes in saying it’s morphed into the “Elevation of Moral POSTURING about sensitivity over truth”

Full Clip of Peterson on Real Time (EXPLICIT): https://youtu.be/8wLCmDtCDAM

We need to reject this idea of Cancelling people who do or say dumb even ignorant things because we FEEL offended or disrespected or whatever. There are more of us who think this sort of outcome is completely ABSURD than we think and we NEED to speak up.

As always, I’d love any feedback.

And Now You’ve been Grayed Out….

FREEDOM Matters… For Everybody!! – Grayed Out Podcast EP 12

EP 12 – FREEDOM MATTERS – For Everyone

Tonight is the First WEEKNIGHT of FREEDOM WEEK!!! Why is it FREEDOM WEEK! Because this Saturday is the 4th of July 2020 and we need to celebrate a little something to get our heads around all the FUSTERCLUCK this year has been so far!!!

I plan to Freedom so hard this week. So I thought I’d start with talking about this ideal of FREEDOM which actually brings us TOGETHER!! And why it MATTERS FOR EVERYONE and why when Freedoms start to be infringed upon because of the opinions, offended-ness, or subjectivity of others, it is a downward spiral that we will be hard pressed to recover from.

FREEDOMS = Life Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness This IDEAL is something to strive for for everyone, this is why we had the Gettysburg Address in November 1863: https://rmc.library.cornell.edu/gettysburg/good_cause/transcript.htm#:~:text=President%20Lincoln%20delivered%20the%20272,all%20men%20are%20created%20equal
FREEDOM: It Costs, but it’s worth it, it gives more back, and it unites!

HARD TRUTHS
WE owe it to one another as United States citizens to contend side by side for one another’s freedoms, So this week, lets focus not on the scars of the past but what they have taught all of us and the road they have paved forward!!

As always, I’d love any feedback.
