The Day Reality Hit Home

A liberal mind person finds his previous views on life, race, politics, crime may need serious revision.

One thing I find it amazing that the generation who came of age during the 1960s 1970s- yeah, the hippies- wanted to change their parent's world- ended up despising its structure and beliefs, then destroying it. Now they've come to realize the folly of their ways.

In my time, I've come to meet people who they hate their parents and their own culture- and so they embrace atheism or neo-Paganism and seek alternative forms of lifestyle. And for some bizarre reason, they also hate America- whilst at the same breath - condoning the sins of Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao etc.. They try so hard to be anti-establishment that they go down a path of destruction - embracing unhealthy lifestyles, drugs, and just go down a downward spiral.

Isn't it strange- when you hate your enemy and fight against him- the more you end up like that person or institution.

When the French revolted against their King and toppled him - it was Liberty, Equality, and Friendship. They stormed the Bastille, where the monarchy kept its political prisoners- and found a few mad men. Then the Revolutionary committee started killing its enemies - the aristocrats and their families, the King and his entire family, then  the revolutionaries' political enemies - and then the people they quarrelled with - and then virtually anyone who was suspect. Eventually, the French people got a leader - Napoleon Bonaparte - who crowned himself Emperor of France - to this day the French nation reveres him - and he's not even a Frenchman.

Ironic eh? They fought to eliminate injustice but in the end they replaced it with something worse.
