Left and Right language

Some stupid terms :

Far Right, the correct term is facist and it just suits the establishment to use far right as it somehow seems less but it really isn’t and the establishment are using the actions of small pockets of facists to keep their own elitism intact and to take away our rights bit by bit.

Far Left, this is also used by the establishment but in this case it is to put fear into people because they immediately begin thinking of communism under Russia and Mao and all that Hollywood has told them. Getting people to think this suits the ruling class because what they are truly afraid of is an equal society which is what ‘Left’ parties want.

Even the terms Right and Left aren’t helpful. Tradition/Religion has always had the good on the right and the bad on the left. The repentant thief was to the right of Jesus on the cross, being a “Citeog”, left handed person was frowned on in school, and society, for such a long time, “bet out of” people even.

Language is powerful, everyday language is powerful. We should be really conscious of the words we use but we aren’t.

I don’t like calling my politics “left”, as in not “right”, all that is “left” after the greedy have taken most but that seems the only word for it.

I want an equitable society. I want the dignity of all people, of all living flora and fauna and the planet at the core of every decision. Why are we not taught that? Why are we not taught to stop and think about how our decisions might impact on others and the planet? Why is that not a core question in all decision making policies? If it was we wouldn’t be in the dreadful mess we are in, the mess this egocentric society has created.

Less emphasis on greed and competition and more on sharing and cooperation is needed now, it was always needed but it is at a critical point now. Being happy with enough so others don’t have to suffer for one person’s more is what we should have because we live in, and are part of, an ecosystem. Presently the only term for the politics that thinks in ecosystem terms rather than egocentric terms is ‘left’ it seems, so I am ‘left, with that.

Vaccination 🤔

No one is forcing vaccination. It is a choice. If that choice means you can’t travel out of the country for a while well that’s your choice just like it was a choice many took to isolate themselves from others for over a year and all that went with it. Others made a choice not to and so had more ‘freedom’ during that time. I don’t understand people rushing to go abroad anyway, it’s worse in most places than here. I made a choice in March 2020 to keep my kids at home and I’m glad I did. We’ve loads of choices. Vaccinations have done more good than bad throughout history, yes there have been some with bad side effects and I have to say I considered and thought about all of them when the kids were small but mostly they do good and the amount of crap we all put into our bodies from eating processed food, sugar, alcohol, breathing in car fumes, open fire fumes, pesticides, fertilizers etc etc vaccinations are way down the list in dangerous things. The choice not to vaccinate is yours but it isn’t just about you though is it? Like everything else to do with Covid 19 this is about those around you and maybe that is the lesson for humanity in it. We’re not learning much from this as a species are we? We could have used the ‘opportunity’ we were given with this virus to change so many planet destroying habits and day to day actions but we didn’t, some did but not enough and not those with the most power and doing the most damage. They are intent on never changing and getting back to their ‘normal’ exploitation of people and planet. We’ve also seen the absolute greed in the pharmacy industry not giving this vaccination to the poor countries for free and the rich countries grabbing it with all their might for themselves. If they really were deadly vaccines or whatever else danger people think they are they would be forcing it on those countries first instead of greedily keeping it for the rich countries. Poor people have always been dispensible to the rich so they’re letting them die while protecting their own. Well that’s what I think anyway.
