PROLOGUE: Personally writing this Article to Comment on Trump/Hillary Wars, Black Lives What 's the Matter Canadian Chapter and Facebook Censorship. So whip out your Brain Cells on this one... and let's duel it out!
“As Iron Sharpens Iron, so one Person Sharpens Another.” Proverbs 27:17. This statement is one of our number one Mission Statement for D.D.P. studios Inc. It is our foundation belief in aspiring one another has Professional Artists from all Idioms. To sharpen one another requires direct honesty, courage to support your opinion, the courage to admit defeat when your logic has failed, and finally, more importantly, no fucking backstabbing of each other in petty little children games. For all Human Beings on this planet in examining the past, present, and our possible future, our History would simply show how our Egos are so polluted with misconceptions of society, culture, religion, politics and to one another. We are all being led by someone else’s Narrative of Events like Donkeys following different colour carrots on sticks, but then there are those that stand out and say “Excuse Me…. Why does God need a Spaceship?” Captain Kirk
This dialogue that perpetuates only duality thinking is so unhealthy for us especially in light of the wondrous Technologies we have today. We have Star Trek Tricoders in our hands and at the same time we are stepping over street people sleeping over subway grids in the dead of winter. Yeaaaaah, we are intelligent? It would be nice to call us ourselves intelligent but frankly we are not intelligent at all
. Is the measurement of intelligence based upon our ability to make Computers? Go to the Moon? Create Cool Drones? Skype with a Friend from New Zealand? or Develop Cheez in a can with no cheese. Is being intelligent perhaps really more about our behavior toward one another and our emotional reactions to events, stories around us. Are we critical thinkers or reactive thinkers? The reason I bring Star Trek into the mix is because the whole reason why the series got so popular was because it was the only Sci-Fi Series that showed a positive future for Humanity which rang true to most peoples desires. The Star Trek is a world where starvation was eliminated and cultures were celebrated and each individual had a choice in their part of humanity to pursue happiness. This is the real key to the success of the Star Trek series.
It saddens me that we rather follow the crowd or follow Trump or Hillary, cuz you just not allowed to hate both.
“JC you have to pick a side”, they would always say. “No” I would say “Why does God need a Spaceship?” I was asked if I would go to a Trump Protest, I said no because he hasn’t done anything yet to warrant a protest? The day that Trump starts going on the War Path against the American People, then yea I would protest. But right now, he just got in office and for some reason he his guilty because someone in a Tie on the News Station Said So.
Funny when people are "dualistic" in thinking they tend to forget the complexity of a Culture of Humans Beings as a whole. Every time I say something bad about Hillary, I am automatically accused of being a Trump Supporter and I said I don’t support either and there seems to be a tension that arises because I won’t take a side. Nor would I go to a Hillary protest either, yet I believe if Hillary had an inauguration and saw her changing her positions and starting going astray from the interest of the American People; yeah, I would protest against her as well.
Our Polluted Egos are always trying to find conclusions to complex social, cultural, political, and economical issues, we want an answer now and that’s why you absorb yourself in the news. You want to be right. But it is important to be right and to impose your rightness or is it important to understand one another and find a better truth. We lack patience. “As Iron Sharpens Iron as one person sharpens another.”
Thus the reason why our Corporation is so against Censorship on the internet, when you Censor news and vital information to the public you are simply acting in an Evil Manner. We become no different than Adolph Hitler whom has redefined the swastika sign from its original meaning “Well Being”, which is the primary symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
When Facebook decided to sensor information on their posts about this bull shit of FAKE NEWS, that was a Bad Move and shows a complete immaturity on behalf of Facebook. It is extremely healthy in dueling out our opinions on Facebook.
The greatest thing that Tim Berners-Lee (Computer Scientist) invited was the internet, it can become our greatest tool for uniting Humanity or a deadly weapon to be used to manipulate the masses. The dialogue of discussion of opinions online is fantastic because it helps humanity argue in a safe place without any physical fights to occur. It also develops better habits, for instance to know if you act like an asshole on Facebook, someone else on Facebook will have an opinion and will tell you … “ you are acting like an asshole on Facebook.” So being at the scrutiny of each other’s opinions is way better than Censorship. For instance I have a great disagreement over controlling language of any sort, Political Correctness never works. If you try to censor what people say then you are not helping in the cause of understanding one another you are pushing people into passive aggressive modes which results in more division. For instance if I got mad for every person who said Faggot out loud in a swear word or otherwise I would be a victim of those words for the rest of my life, how ridiculous. So controlling language doesn’t help but being tolerant and bridging understanding of what being Gay is to another person who uses the language who would then in his change of heart would stop using these words has a sign of true respect, now that is change. Forcing language through legislation is wrong in every sense of the way, but pushing education and dialogue is the best way to changed hearts.
Thus my partial reason for writing this article is the disturbing news recently from Pride Toronto with Black Lives Matter supporting this regressive decision to remove the Police Department from the parade is nothing but regressive and idiotic. When you make decisions, you must weigh the outcome of that decision.
Black Lives Matter is coming from a place of anger and their cause is not translating properly through these demands through Pride Toronto which is supposed to be about inclusiveness. I could have told you 62 plausible stories of how Black Lives Matter fiasco last year in Pride Toronto could have been avoided. If they wanted the cops removed, they could have asked the cops ahead of time to volunteer to step aside as a sign of disagreement toward Police who Profile and perform lynching practices during duty to Black People. I know for a fact that every cop in Toronto would have volunteered to walk behind Black Lives Matters in support of this cause. This Canadian Chapter is confusing, Black Lives Matter was founded over the death of Young Promising Black Man whom was shot for no reason, simply because of prejudice and you can see the police lynching going on in the United States. As I read BLM website it is clear that the Police Lynching of Black people needs to completely stop and thus we has Gay People should support such a cause. But perception in the Canadian Chapter of BLM has labeled and judged our Police Force here in Canada to the same degree has the Police in the United States! What? How Naïve and ill advised they have been. Black Lives Matters say the Toronto Police Department are Pink Washing us by pretending to be tolerant and that their apology was insufficient. Perhaps the cops, press, businesses and individuals whom were part of that chaos as well should have been there to apologize but most likely most of them are dead, now, think about it, and what good would it do? If these people were forced to show up to apologize, in the end, would there be a change of heart, would it vindicate the victims, would it bring reconciliation with the Toronto Police.
Rev. Wendy Gritter once said “… I focus on the word repentance rather than forgiveness, because true repentance shows a different direction a different thought process and 180 degree turn … which then makes forgiveness a lot easier to absorb.” If you lived during the 70’s, 80’s as a gay person, like I did, you truly remember the hate from Cops including the Press and Businesses whom fired the people on the list caught in the Bathhouse Raids. It was bad, but all I see today is true motivation and good intent of repentance from the Toronto Police. The only evidence that I and many from the LGBTTiQQ2SAA community see, every year since the 80’s is more Cops whom have a change of heart, and just recently strived to have a Gender Neutral washroom for our Gender Choosing Community, also and admittance by Chief Saunders with a Mural commemorating the abuse from the Bath House Raids, and for some reason there are more Police volunteering in the security of our parade every year. So does the Toronto Police Department deserve this ill treatment from Pride Toronto and Black Lives Matter. Absolutely not! Pride Toronto is subsequently taking now marching orders from Black Lives Matter which is ridiculous. Also, Black Lives Matter Canadian Chapter, in my informed opinion, you need to step down for a while before you lose your entire cause and support here in Canada.
