While there might be a small percentage of gays etc, there is a concerted effort to condition people. Oh oh. Guess I'm stepping in it huh? Far as I'm concerned, only with collectivists.
I believe there is a mixture of nature and nurture. There are indications some may have predisposition. However, there are many subtle conditioners, either deliberate or happenstance, that contribute to the way we picture ourselves.
Well, we could debate all this til we're blue in the face. And all I have to say (well not all lol) is if seduction into something, whether slow or fast, is present, then it should be condemned by EVERYONE of conscience.
Sexuality aside as it were, there is a deliberate effort to blur lines, whether moral relativism or internationalism. The more doubt, the more confusion and the more easily controlled.
For decades now, American history has been watered down and redirected, edging toward demonization of the Founders and other groups in time, to fashion events as nothing special, even wrong.
The economy has been long skewed, with creeping socialism and galloping crony capitalism (that which uses capitalism for the benefit of the few instead of for all) eat the substance of work and business.
Families are disseminated and alienated, leaving many at the mercy of the state.
Bit by bit, the Republic and the world crumbles.
Maybe I was a weird kid. I'd take a glass of milk and pour a heaping spoonful of Quik on top. Then, instead of stirring, I'd watch the particles slowly tumble and sink. Only when It was gone would I stir. Little was left to blend.
So it is with our Republic. We slowly tumble til those watching have only to wait, then install the control method.
Is it too late? Are we being pushed/force fed til we are absorbed?
With what do you identify? Are you holding fast to history, unadulterated by collectivist putrefaction? Are you reaching out to something, anything like a last gasp? Or are you breathing the air of Freedom?
Are you reversing, bit by bit, the corrosion inflicted on the Republic. Will it ever be a place where we live, albeit with differences, in the common cause of Liberty?
Are you caving to the collectivist politicians, liberal democrats and neocon republicans, as they play yin/yang, singsonging us into wars, not to preserve Freedom, but to keep our minds off enslavement, 1984 style?
Are you thinking for yourselves, preferring not to hate or lie and hold the lamp of Liberty high, exposing the machinations described?
Are you just taking what's shoveled out?
Are you digging, willing to accept a total picture?
Do you ever try to force your ways on others?
Or do you hold out for discussion?
Do you expect others to defend you?
Or are you prepared to defend yourselves?
With whom or what do YOU identify?
