The Minority Polarizing Trap
The word minority has brought the World more divide than Unite!
For what is a minority if not part of humanity? It seems to me that we have not been integrating but rather polarizing public opinion over the last few decades. We see it in most depictions coming out of America as seen in movies and on TV with all their stereotypes. All black or all Latino or all white soaps as well as the idea of Gay-Pride-Parades. All of these are more freak-shows than a show of diversity & humanity. The worst effect they produce is a counter-effect by other radical movements or out of plain individual ignorance.
Even in the developing World the emphasizing of minorities has led to lesser integration, not only of gays but also in religious acceptance. Where before religious minorities or gay communities, had been living amongst other religious majorities for centuries, we now see rising tensions between all folks of different creed, color, religion or sexual preference Worldwide. I honestly hope that the US lack of cultural understanding and meddling in the World does not drive us all into another World War.
What we all need now is ,’nuance’, in rhetoric and to CELEBRATE DIVERSITY. No more,’One Liners’, that serve only to fill time-slots for News-media. No more singled-out this or that pride-parades; ending up mostly in wasteful consumer parties that provoke more than they actually do help to integrate and mostly just paint distorted pictures.
Now we all know that people tend to drift towards tribal group clusters, for various reasons. Mostly out of fear, peer-pressure or a false sense of security. We hide within these groups mostly not because we choose to, but because that is just the ruling local or National mantra. This keeps us from becoming a collective of individual thinkers. This is what keeps us from becoming a collective of Global Citizens.
Industry, Insurance companies and Governments also play into these sentiments. Industry prefers easy to cater-to groups. Easy to facilitate needs & preferences. This clearly segregates us into categories that did not exist before the Industrial Revolution. It makes our daily lives less colourful and does not enrich society as a whole. It is actually closer to a fascist model than a divers society model. This is also clearly taking place through insurance companies. If you are not insured your are no part of society and if you can be insured depends on what group you belong to?!
So in conclusion. I prefer a ,’PEOPLE-PRIDE-PARADE’. soundtrack
I prefer a divers and colourful society to any simplified but rather dull & boring and possibly dangerously categorized humanity, anytime! I will never accept federal fascist models created just to please some industrial elite and their corrupt cronies. These models lack any & all intellect and will never be able to bring humanity into a brighter future that works for us all.
So let’s all stop to talk for a moment and let all present created Global tensions come to an ease, a détente. We are all in need of an easing of tensions and the geopolitical arrogance that has been going around.
We need real role-models for man-kind.
Therefore Again: let’s create that PEOPLE-PRIDE-PARADE and show the WORLD the diversity & real wealth of mankind.
