If the goal of repealing Roe v. Wade had anything, ANYTHING to do with preventing murder, they would push towards making contraception more widely available, especially to teenagers. Can't have abortions if you don't get pregnant.
But no. They want to make contraception illegal as well.
If they cared about kids they wouldn't let the program for free meals at schools expire.
If they cared about babies they would pass healthcare laws to decrease deaths during birth, something where the US is a leader among western countries. No word about that. Not a peep.
It's not about murder or death. Not one bit. It's about forcing religious views on others.
I like this take, I think you're right on the money (pun intended)
What is important to remember is that there is not one single, unified "they" - Many people, groups and collectives use dirty tricks for their own gain. Some conspire together, some don't, some do it unknowingly thinking they are in control.
MSM, Telegram channels, Russian media, Ukrainian media, politicians, lobbyists, megacorp executives.
They vibe off of each other as much as they abuse each other in the same way they abuse us.
Change will only happen if we know who we are fighting, and too many of the folks here still think it's people they disagree with. It's not.
Im not going to be ashamed of being fooled, because together we are exposing those fools who fool us! They have money and psychology and all kinds of buggery to deceive us, using our money , so we do it to ourselves, "they " think this is funny!
Here's the thing. I encourage everyone to "do their own research" as is the motto around here. Use your own brain, that's what it's for.
That being said, if you make wild claims, and tell people who want more info or actual sources to "do their own research" you're not helping. At best you are being a prick arguing in bad faith, and at worst you are actively aiding the bad guys conceal the truth by making it that much harder for people to form their own opinions.
Telling people to "do their own research" instead of presenting substance gives a pass to others with worse intentions to do the same.
Share facts, not opinions. Don't obfuscate the truth with this poor excuse of a comeback. Let people judge for themselves by giving them access to the sources to do so.
Asleep, manipulated, entranced, hypnotized, misguided, unhealed, gullible, stupid.
The need of some people to put down others to inflate their own ego is just disgusting.
People with this sort of attitude are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
Those who think like that are only contributing to the polarized and divided state of the country and the world. Things won't get better like that.
The more one-dimensional you think of things, and the more binary your world view is, the less likely you are to really get a sense of what's going on.
The world is complex.
People are complex.
Life is complex.
Nothing exists in a vacuum.
Do you ever stop for a moment and ponder the possible implications if the things you believe in most turned out to be wrong? It's hard, but it helps retain a degree of nuance and stops a lot of toxic mindsets from taking root.
Two people look at a cat and a dog. One thinks the dog is cuter. One thinks the cat is cuter. They agree to disagree. End of story.
Two people look at a cat and a dog. One thinks the cat is heavier than the dog as it sits closer to them, appearing bigger. Person two says the dog is heavier, and it is. There is no "agree to disagree" here, only right and wrong.
Abortions suck for everyone involved, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to reduce the number of abortions performed.
Putting RvW aside for a second, lawmakers are now trying to restrict access to contraceptives, and that will have the exact opposite effect. That's not about preventing a horrible procedure from being done, it's about reducing the choices people have, and it makes me wonder if repealing RvW may not be happening for the same reason.
Human history is longer than what you and your parents can remember.
The arrogance it takes to think that everything important and everything that affects you happened within your lifetime is ridiculous and, quite frankly, sad.
