Often, I get into these political disputes or debates. This one was significantly interesting for me. Someone posted a FaceBook comment during a brief conversation I was having with another individual. I suggested a book to the person and he got offended and went on “I’m so smart, look what I can say” rant. So this was my response.
“Lol - My eyes have always been open. If you speak to Matt, I’m one of the individuals who always maintain these exact same conversations with him as stimulation. We all know that the public is in need of these kinds of questionings, there isn’t nearly enough.
Now in response to everything you’ve stated above:
If the term terrorism is used as a less pejorative way to identify criminal acts done in response to the effects of different political climates, then it brings me to this…
The Hutu’s and Tutsi’s, regardless, are identified as cultural groups that each performed acts of terrorism on each other. These acts of terrorism, as we began to understand their motives, we later understood these acts as forms of Genocide. But even the term Genocide is controversial because what is Genocide to the American community is less of Genocide and more of critical survival in a less Americanized community.
The American community stepped into this conflict merely because of the super power that we are, and because of the humanitarian powerhouse image that we attempt to uphold within the UN - we had to make sure that civilians and everyone else were safe from the political dispute.
However, the conflict in the middle east directly affects us because of the attacks that we’ve both flipped on each other. Now we have to perform damage control. Now our view, within the eyes of the world is tainted. Now we have to redeem ourselves, or what happens? We owe more money. We lose allies. We lose support. We lose control. This is how we know certain things - simply through inference and common knowledge. We don’t NEED the government to tell us certain things - we know damn well what the overall consensus is and we know what we understand and we KNOW what’s being hidden from us. That’s why we have things like leftism and rightism because there are differences in ideals and opinions and the clash is how we understand our country. It’s a balance.
So the evidence is what we gather - the substantialness of the evidence is what confuses us, but the collective minds of everyone is what helps us makes sense. That’s why rejecting the media and rejecting other writings from other intelligent people who you agree or disagree with is stupid. Because you can’t develop anything without the collective influence of anything else. Your brain can’t conceive everything. Someone has to teach you how to think.”
