We all spent our days in school. At least to some degree, we were expected to conform. Mostly, we had to conform to the rules set by the teachers. However, as we grew older, we noticed that, if we were going to be popular, we needed to conform to the norms set by other students. certainly, right at the top for boys: we had to have the right tennis shoes. Not only did they have to be the right brand, but the right specific model.
For girls, I guess it was style. The right hair-do and the right kind of clothing was a must. Woe be to the girl whose parents could not afford such things. They became outsiders and they were never accepted in the better circles.
Then there were the college days. Learning was just something done on the side. The most important thing was to get in the right cliques and be known by the right people. This in turn help to determine who might hire whom. Here lately, there is another part of conforming. No one dare say or do anything to indicate they are conservative. Worst of all, don’t ever say anything in favor of President Trump. If a modern Yale student lets it be known that he is in favor of President Trump, he will not be permitted in any of the prestige organizations. His grades might start taking a nose dive and it is even possible he might be expelled, but always for other reasons.
Then too, if someone finds out that a former student worked for the president, it is now a high priority to make sure that they must surrender their sheepskin back to the school. Moreover, it is very important that they quickly conform or they will never get a good job ever again. What a horrible thing it would be for someone who worked for the president to get a position where he might influence people to do good things. (and most of my life, educators tried to convince me that once I got an education it is mine. No one can take it away from me. Maybe this is not as true as they claimed.)
Now, it has risen to new heights, or should I say lows. Woe to those who write or say anything to favor the conservatives. There are those in Congress demanding the dismissal of all members who would not immediately accept the presidency of Biden.
After the forefathers wrote The United States Constitution, they almost immediately added The Bill of Rights. The very first amendment insured freedom of the press and of speech. So, the government may not limit speech or the press in almost any way. However, the dems found a very effective way around that.
The New York Post came out with a factual article on Biden’s son and dems turned to the mainstream and social media, and stopped the oldest paper in the land – cold. Guess what? The founding fathers never thought of that one. Who could have predicted the likes of Twitter and Face Book? If they had thought ahead, they just might have made provisions. However, at the time they wrote the first amendment, they had no way of foreseeing computers, let alone things such as Twitter.
Moreover, the technology has outraced the law. Because it was not foreseen, appropriate changes were not made. Now it is too late. Even now, I with my little blog, have started experiencing small difficulties. Even I might be faced with the ultimate order, conform or else!
What is the or else? I don’t know. However, if this conform disease is not stopped, this world will become far worse than Orwell’s “1984,” albeit a few decades late. Eventually, we will all conform or we will be canceled. If need be, that means languishing away in some prison. If need be, it will mean being injected with poison until dead.
You see, the left will protect a killer from the death penalty. However, if someone refuses to conform, they don’t deserve to breathe. A dog’s life is worth more.
By the way, once we are all canceled, the main stream media will be next. The members of congress must conform. The conservatives must conform. Finally, of course, the mainstream media will have to conform. No one can be allowed to think for himself. Other than the leaders, there will be no exceptions. There will no longer be a first amendment. In fact there will no longer be a constitution. It is their ultimate goal. If we don’t stand in their way, they will reach it.
