Back to normal? Most I encounter don’t want to hear or confront the truth about normal. Truth is America is sic, sick and twisted. Our state of selective-ignorance just ignored ten more of our fellow Americas slaughtered. A grocery store; this time.
I was at Columbine High five minutes after the call went out. Working for CBS News that morning. The overwhelming state of absolute terror on the faces of all those parents still vivid. That was 1999 and nothing changed not even after babies were slaughtered at Sandy Hook.
Boulder will change nothing as America moves on to the next shooting, fitting it in their conciseness between March Madness and the fake boarder crisis. The only change comes to the growing list of victims and their families. Are you willing to wait for this type of change to effect your friends and family?
The destructive synergy of American’s long selective-ignorance comingled with the champion of trumping ignorance further polluted our already toxic society unleashing the debilitating forces of hate on anyone not white with more ferocity then our selective-ignorance has tolerated to date.
We kill babies and bomb hospitals in Yemen with our tax dollars every day in line at the Starbucks drive-thru.
We are a murder based culture and society. One of the Columbine shooters parents worked for Lockeed Martin possible on the same weapons’ systems killing the Yemenis babies with your tax-dollars today. My Dad makes bombs that kill foreign babies! What’s your Dad do?
Video games are now the recruiting tools of the Military Industrial Complex streamed directly too your children in your living rooms. Ain’t that America? The Defense Department owns the NFL at this point. Just ask Pat Tillman.
Georgia just outlawed voting for Black American’s. Over half a million fellow American’s dead due to our trump-card of selective-ignorance. American’s have embraced this selective-ignorance for centuries now and the dangers of this constant ignorance has created our bewildering state of what we like to refer to as Normal.
Don’t know about you? Normal scares the shit our of me. I don’t want to go back there. Do you? Do something. Do anything? Think about thinking more? That’s not normal. Just look around at normal.
Is normal; normal for you? Because it’s killing me.
