It’s funny where one might find a bit of truth. Of all the places I wouldn’t have expected, Bon Jovi, is right at the top of the list. The first line of the song "Wanted Dead or Alive" includes these words: “It’s all the same, only the names will change…”
Boy, that really explains a lot.
Is it possible all the racism, sexism and bigotries professed to be constructs of our culture and political systems really didn’t start with Donald Trump or the heinous and toxic white male persona?
Is it possible that it is nothing more than we could expect from politicians who practice “plantation politics” for cheap labor, disguised as “immigration sanctuary,” while local politicians deprive taxpaying citizens of their constitutional rights to firearms?
As was observed, “It’s all the same,” by the same people, whether today or 2,000 years ago.
I guess the reason why there is inequality is because equality doesn’t pay as well.
Where would we be without the “victim culture?”
Only the names change, not the motivations, intents or causes.
