Utopian dream?! - Or, can it be real?!

This is a part of a post of mine that I posted yesterday in the forum, but I think this should be posted as a blog also!

 

In the times we live in, with the term political correctness - it is implied that it would somehow be possible to create a world where no-one would ever be offended by anything. This is a utopian dream. What it leads to is policing of language, and many people are afraid to speak their minds freely, in fear that they may offend someone.

Some other people take it upon themselves - the task of policing what everyone else says. In the end - you have communication where nobody is really saying what they mean and nobody knows what is said is what is meant. 

One important thing to remember is that - people often offend themselves. Someone else may say this or that - but it is you that will interpret this as offensive, neutral or benevolent.

This political correctness movement also seems to have given rise to a counter-reaction - where people purposefully verbally abuse other people. This is not worth talking about too much - as it is clear, through the entire human history - how every movement always has a counter-movement.

The fact is - there will be people who are discriminative (sexist, racist etc.) whether they express it in their language or not. There will also be people who are abusive. That is just the reality of life.
 
However, there will also be people who perceive everything as a threat, people who overreact and are never satisfied. 99% of the time - these are people who have unresolved issues of their own that they project on other people. 

The unfortunate problem at hand is that the political correctness movement provides an umbrella for both people who are actually victims of actual abuse (verbal, physical or otherwise) and people mentioned above who use the hype and momentum of this movement to leverage their own personal issues that have nothing to do with actual abuse.

I think real love can fix a lot of the problems I see here on planet earth.

The biggest problem here is unfortunately humanity because most people don't live in balance with nature.

Humanity is destructive, but we have something very beautiful about us and it's called "love".

It's only a loving heart that will be able to change things.

Love is what caused all the problems. Love of money, love of power, love of our addictions. No one every changes anything really. Same story, difference characters and settings. The same things we've been doing since forever.

People have the power within themselves to determine what kind of world we live in. The problem is exercising that power for the greater good.

It's our duty to love all and some people are better at it than others but there will always be people who have not learned enough or traveled life's troubled roads enough to find compassion for others.  The desire to bend others to our will is strong in humans.  It leads to much pain and darkness.  Christ's example was the ultimate answer.  One has to be willing to literally die in submission to those who hate them to be victorious over the evil.  I believe that after He returns, the survivors of the horrors that we will self-inflict in our last great war will finally be able to understand that only through loving each other can we survive as a species.

:D

 

On a serious note. It's true that some people should learn to think before they speak. :)

Some folks complain that you have to be politically correct all of the time, and therefore you often can't say how you really think and feel.

However, back in the old days, it was politically okay to say terrible things about minorities.  I don't think that was good at all.
