"Every Age has its Rage"

Same old politics.......through the ages.

In 1692 there were the Salem Witch Trials. Nothing to do with witchcraft, all about ergotism. But, if you disagreed with someone politically, you just called them out as a witch.

In the 50's, if you disagreed with someone politically, you called them out as a communist. McCarthyism.

These days, if you disagree with someone politically, it seems to be the current rage to claim they're mentally unfit, even without actual proof.

Same politics, just different times.

Now.......where is this going? This is a theory I've had for years. If liberals can successfully label select people as mentally ill, they could push that agenda to restrict other basic rights. Redefining the definition of who is a "felon", therefore gun ownership, voting rights, any basic rights guaranteed by the constitution? Government ordered commitment to a mental institution? In our current society, where does this go, how far and where does it stop?

It's already ridiculous.

Yep, "ergotism"  Explains liberals, doesn't it?

I don't see that this post had anything to do with my dogs, but it leads exactly to the point I'm leading to about differences in society and the refusal of people to respect those. Emphasis on RESPECT. Read on to the Kindergarten section for my point for you.

Let's look deeper. Where does the "finger pointing" really come from?

We have a "Me, me, me" attitude in our society. This drives the divorce rate. Basically, everyone has the idea that everything they want happens and nobody else has anything to say about it.

Reminds me of the cartoon on rightbias, "I want it so it happens, right?"

This applies to our current politics too.

Millenials have a terrible outlook, but where did it come from?

We learn our social skills at an early age, but especially Kindergarten, which is when the public school system entered most of our lives. These days most kids don't learn the same skills most of us did. Apparently, some of us, back then didn't learn them either, right oldcoot? I'll call a spade a spade though and I just did.

I will not be back. Hell, maybe I'll switch to voting liberal if this is how "conservatives" are!

It all gets to the issue of elitism, in my opinion. "Certain" people can say whatever they want to, because they have over 1,000 or over 10,000 posts. Newcomers are nobody. Isn't that the sort of elitism that we all profess to fight against in Washington DC?

BTW, I'm notjoshing.

Please lighten up Many Dogs, did you not see the laughing face AND the * I think you've got too many dogs!  Shocked Grin Grin Grin
(Jus' Joshin'
???

How many post a person has, has nothing to do with what they say or don't say.  Wayne has been posting funnies in an effort to lighten up this *dark side*, and IMHO it is refreshing.  Some get too entrenched in politics all the time, but remember laughter is good for the soul.  Wink

Around here in liberville, you steal the poor kids welfare checks and if found to be nuts, they give you three month's in the nut house. Then they declare you 3/4 of normal and turned loose.

Sorry you feel insulted, Many Dogs!  (Wonder why I mentioned "dogs" in my answer!) Roll Eyes
As I said, I was KIDDING you.  Sorry you're humorless.
You might re-read your own comment, which I have highlighted for your convenience.

Incidentally, if you'd like to vote "liberal", be my guest.  You won't be the only liberal person to vote based on an inability to understand the written word.
Happens to kindergarteners all the time.
