pauseforthought.... Pause For Thought. Your post brings us an important question and instructions for responding to it at the same time. I'm trying
to do just that and concentrate on both the pause and the thought, but it's difficult with the background agitation caused by our strong belief
systems and their impact on our rational process.
Pardon me if I missed the boat with this paraphrase of your initial question, but weren't you asking if citizens/the governed/human beings should
expect this kind of treatment? Or it it was morally or even legally justified? The fact these things happen are inescapable, but humans have no
obligation to perpetuate the practice IMO. It is highly understandable that many of those among us feel compelled to view the situation using the
"reality" perspective. But as I said, I misunderstood the question to be what "should be" rather than what "is" followed by a detailed
rationalization of "why" to express a preference for a particular view point.
My contribution is this: no human being should be compelled to express or support views that defy their fundamental humanity - so should we expect our
sociopolitical institutions to oppress us: NO. Thanks for the post!
