RESTORING HONOR

RESTORING HONOR

YOU MAY READ THIS AS A CONTINUATION OF THE PREVIOUS ARTICLES ALSO

I wanted to call it something like  " Mr. Beck goes to Washington", but hey, there is no comparison here. Mr. Smith though a fictional character was actually a decent human being with no hidden agenda, he did not talk in  circles, and was open about what he meant. Mr. Beck on the other hand is either shamelessly being coy, or worse does know what the hell he is talking about. If a lot a good people did show up for the rally, then it only proves that a lot of people are upset with the situation of the country and looking for some one to save them, Mr. Beck should not be very impressed with him self or his partner Sarah Palin, it is the same kind of Americans who elected Obama, only on the other side of the fence, the electorate is similarly ill informed on both sides and looking  for a Messiah, any one claiming to be the one will do.

Now that Mr. Beck and Sarah Palin have had their rally, what did they say? was i right?  Are you more clear about "honor", and what is expected of you  from here on out?

Honor is a construct that means what you want to make it mean. In some Muslim societies, men are known to kill their daughters, wives, sisters  and mothers for talking to a stranger, is that where we are going? In some societies revenge killing is a matter of honor, see Hatfield's and McCoy's. Then there is the tradition of dueling, I guess we could go for that. Or may be even tar and feathers if you like. But I do not think that is what Beck et all mean.

So what are we left with,



LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE

Sorry for posting this here but I didn’t know a better place, anyway I been thinking about what we talked about before how poverty was the main reason behind criminal actions and I believe this is some what wrong. It is a reason but one of two main reason the other being the feeling of being cheated, or basically screwed over. I watch several shows where serial killers, rapist, thieves, and even embezzlers talked about why they did it and in each case it came down to a feeling of being cheated either of a life they thought they should have for all the work they put in or the women they thought they should have for what ever reason it comes down to the feeling of entitlement and the feeling that someone either the victim or society as a whole has cheated them and stolen away what should have been theirs. I not trying to blame them, in a few cases of embezzlement they actually had a lot of evidence that they where being taken advantage of but even with that said most of us wouldn’t go and do what they did. As you said religion is something that keeps people in their place, but so are morals and other things society made up like honor and hope. There is no honor of hope molecule it is nothing more then a creation of the human imagination but it is something much like religion that helps guide us thru this live. Of course I sure I not telling you any thing new but it is just and observation I saw that it seems everyone is feeling like their being taken advantage of and because of that they use it to justify their bad behavior like not paying your taxes because the government is going to just waste it, not caring about your workers because you think they just want the money and don’t care about the product or business, workers who cheat the boss because he making so much off their labor not realizing their screwing themselves, and the list goes on and on. Anyway thanks for writing it’s always interesting to see your point of few.
