Let me just say this does not apply to everyone, because everyone is different, but to some degree it has an affect as a whole. Where are taught not
to express ourselves, and to supress the self expression of others. Let me expand on the idea. Somewhere along the line there has been a virus
implemented in our coding. This virus quickly spreads from one being to another and back again. The problem with this virus is it can not be cured
From a very young age, starting on the childhood playground, the virus has already taken hold. It begins with people telling
Other people who they are, what they feel, and how they should act. "your stupid" "your gay" useless, not funny, not pretty, etc etc etc.
Now naturally when somone tells you "you are" something, you begin to question why they said this. You look for flaws in yourself, why am I stupid?,
am I stupid? At this very point the virus has just infiltrated your system. Next time you want to say something, you think before you EXPRESS
yourself, because Your EXPRESSION may be WRONG in the eyes of your peers. And this scares you.
the next step of any virus after taking it's victim, is to spread to others. You come home from the playground and suddenly it is your father,
mother, or siblings who are the stupid ones. Your mothers cooking is bad, your sister's opinion about videogames is WRONG.
How can anyone possibly be themselves with this going on ALL THE TIME. Let me explain what caused me to think on thus topic. This forum, this
"society" is a smaller version of what goes on every day outside in the real world. I know I will get thrashed for saying these things but I must.
In here if you have an opinion on something, somone, somehow, WILL tell you, you are wrong. Read the posts that follow mine and you will see what I
I have not been a member here long, but long enough to be able to draw the conclusion that this society of ours is severely infected. The anger, the
finger pointing, flaming, putting down, is relentless. And I am just as guilty as the next. But I realize and can admit to this. And I truly want to
change myself to benefit the rest of the community as a whole. Even just one person can make a difference.
One less person to kill a beautiful expression, a thread. One less argument over petty disagreements. It all adds up.
Disagreeing is part of self expression, but degrading others and claiming their Opinion, belief, feelings, ideas, theories, ideologies, artwork, or
creativity of unique self to be WRONG, is the virus hard at work doing it's job in the destruction of self expression.You do your part in their
agenda, and you don't even know it.
"Deny self expression"? You decide
