There are a few Truths that I thought, naively here in my Libra-Bubble, we had all agreed upon…
- The Sun is the center of our solar system not Earth
- The Earth is round
- Gravity, while wondrous and magical is not magic
- Mass extinction and Climate change are real and happening
- and We as a race caused it. If you are not ready to accept responsibility for this mass issue – OK – I hear yah.. so let me put it this way, for our purposes it does not matter who is to blame, us, earth, time .. We can help to slow it down, everyday doing small things.. What do you say?
- Our Universe was created by the Big Bang
- OK creationists, before your knickers get all twisted, I offer that I believe there is more evidence of the Devine in hard science than in any man made book… Does that help?
- War is bad for everyone but Halliburton
- ALL humans are created equally and deserve to be treated equally before the eyes of the law.
- I know I am in grey waters here.. I am not totally sure that everyone believes this, as evidenced by who populates our prisons and who get’s their asses grabbed on the subway. Even if this is not absolute yet, shouldn’t we be working towards this?
- Being equal, having provenance over your own body? … I am hedging my bets – Reproductive rights? Anyone?
- Freedom of Press, Speech and Expression wether you like what someone has to say or not. Just please don’t insight a riot – Do all the protests Trump has started count?
- If I could add an amendment it would be that the Press MUST be impartial and Factual ONLY.. let story tellers, comedians and entertainers do their job, you do yours.
- A Right to Privacy – My life, my choices
- A Right to pray to whomever you choose and express your beliefs as much as you like as long as they don’t infringe on mine.
Given who was just selected as our president elect, I woke up to find out that these above were not all understood, agreed upon much less absolutes.. If as a nation we cannot agree on the most basic of issues, it’s not a wonder we can’t figure out genderless bathrooms.
