To Speak, Or Not to… Part 3.

*******

[ Would make better sense if You start from Part 1, and go thro Part 2, too. 🙂 ]

Continued from Part 2.

MOST people seem to think Democracy is this: Vote once in 5 years or so, then DO whatever the ‘gorement’ says. (Popularly called government; but they just Gore You, don’t they?).

It raises Petrol/Diesel prices? Ok Sir! It helps its cronies and throws scraps to the populace? Yes Sir!

Below is a graphic of a supporter of modi, from his comment, by screen capture:

 

I decline to translate this; So crass it is. It will be understood by Most of the locals of India.

For the rest of the Mortals, here’s what Most think Democracy is:

***

I come to my point now:

SOMEBODY has to say/tell/teach What is Right and what is Wrong.

In Christianity, of which I am one, it falls upon priests (and bishops and the pope).

Here’s a quote (Lamentations 2.14, New Living Translation):

“Your prophets have said so many foolish things, false to the core. They did not save you from exile by pointing out your sins. Instead, they painted false pictures, filling you with false hope.”

So, the modern day prophet, the priest, bishop and pope should speak and teach what would avoid Calamity, and Bring Good.

‘They,’ the 1%, the Arms Manufacturers, the ‘Conglomerate’ as the senator in the movie ‘Shooter’ puts it,

Are NOT going to say or teach How to change the system.

Linus says it too.

The ‘tyrant’ FEARS opposition. he is nothing but a Big bully.

And this brings us to

The Responsibility of Speaking Up, and Keep Speaking,

…For the Sake of our Loved ones.

*******

Can We Not do our little bits of kindness and good, and Just Stop looking at the News?

Can We?

Really?

Do We Really think hitler’s ideas, Fascism, modi and Xi and all the other autocrats will just cease if We do that?

No. To Repeat what I have said, the tyrant Fears Opposition.

We have to keep hammering away, chipping away, the ploy said to have been used by Michaelangelo for his David.

It is a Spiritual Battle; And It will take Decades.

And that’s Why I Shall Keep Speaking. 🙂

  1. This voice needs a Mike to be heard far enough . The point of speaking isn’t overall enough, one needs to be good and sensible with his/her words mbut unluckily since democracy has given people to do anything, these powers are often misleading.
    I wanted this to be discussed since I was in class 9th.But even group discussions led it no where. Rip to the souls who is misleading and misguiding us.
    Thanks for coming up with this topic

    1. My Dear D, thank You for Your response.

      …I think I understand You.

      …Yes, Democracy, and So many other types of Freedom Struggle, like that of Votes for Ladies, and Equal Pay, etc, have given us what we have today.

      People Use this freedom and Speak; but actually those who speak More, and are More Loud, are those who want to Destroy Democracy and so many other positive values.

      Good People are More Lethargic. In my opinion, Good People should Speak out More.

      Love and Regards. 🙂
