Pull down those walls. I’m sure the roof will remain standing. Do let’s continue the nostalgia for baby boomers challenging their parents, when baby boomers are now grandparents: June Whitfield interview: ‘Middle class is still a dirty word in TV’.
Fortunately those middle class values are just things that kill joys came up with to prevent the perfect non-patriarchal society from happening. It’s not like It’s not just boys who need male role models.
And it’s not like teaching the kids to despise their own homeland will have a bad effect, so, let’s double down on that, because there are kind and sensitive “others” and their perfect cultures which will be better than our flawed land, the one that gave most people the most prosperous and freest lifestyle in history.
After all they should be fighting for the ideals of believers in far-away religions, ideals that are so much more likely to bring about paradise than our capitalist, middle class society.
And above all never mind if the evidence is on your side, don’t call a reporter a left wing liberal. (Dirty and smelly is a personal opinion and I wasn’t there.)
Because they have no sense of humor, whatsoever. You have a sense that there’s something good and decent and worth saving before you have a sense of humor, I guess.
Fortunately we have a sense of humor. And a good idea of what works too. We’re not demanding paradise on Earth or happy forever more. We’re just working towards a world where most people can live okay lives. Because we know humans are fallible, we exempt no race or creed from decent human behavior.
It’s Wednesday morning in the last week of August 2014. We have things to learn and a society to rebuild. The wall-pullers have been at it a long time, and what can’t go on forever, won’t.
Learn, work, hold yourself responsible, and teach your children well.
Up and at ’em.
