S is for...Shit hits the fan
Today’s the day! General Election time bitches! I’m pretty pumped. I don’t know if it’s because I’m older or just because people are actually talking about politics, and at least for those around me, it’s not turning into an all out debate and argument. It’s civil, which is what we need and all I’ve ever wanted. To be fair it’s pretty much always been like that when it comes to me and talking about ‘actual politics’. Not Chris Davy politics though, about whether or not I’m right; because well...I’m always right. Haaaa haaa haaa, running family joke. Funny, not funny. Infuriatingly I am a seeker of right.
Perfect time to quote the classic bit of Voltaire
“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
Which isn’t actually said by Voltaire, yeah I’m relearning that again in the creation of this blog entry. It was actually written by Evelyn Beatrice Hall who wrote the phrase, to try and encapsulate Voltaire’s beliefs, in a book she wrote about him.
Anyway, the point is, fucking banging quote!
As for me, I believe in a whole bunch of things but a couple of the most important things are
Treat others how you wish to be treated.
Also, the way you act is a symbolic act that allows others to act the same way you do. Whether you do that consciously or not is a different matter. So, if you are cool, then those around are likely to be cool. If you are a dick, those around you are likely to be dicks.
Yeah, that’s some Coach Carter shit. Our deepest fear and all that...
And yeah, yeah, I know that quite is not actually Coach Carter, it’s a Marianne Williamson quote.
But yeah, I’d like to think that the way I’ve acted towards politics throughout my life has lead to this point and one that I think is progress - whatever happens today. Ultimately, the political conversations that people have around me, and with me are positive and encouraging ones. Like I say, ultimately I like to think that comes down to the fact that I’m not a cunt when it comes to discussing politics. Because I learnt a long time ago, as much as politics isn’t cool and it is annoying and boring as shit. Ultimately you have to be S is for...Serious about politics and not S is for...Silly or stupid. Especially if you want to get S is for...Shit done!!!
We are part of an S is for...System which makes up S is for...Society. And yeah, whilst it can S is for...Seem like a drag from time to time. S is for...Suck it up, and get S is for...Stuck in!
