Trigger Warning: There are no Safe Spaces

“…one day after snuggling in your security blanket and sucking your thumb in your Safe Space, you’ll wake up and realize…you have no more freedom!  Time to wake people!”

Trigger Warning

Hello fellow zobopians!  It’s me again.  Today’s rant is all about “trigger warnings” and “safe spaces“.  Do we as a society need trigger warning labels like the recording industry?  Here’s a trigger warning for you…”Buyer Beware”.  I think that saying is from ancient Roman times.  So that makes it a 2000 year old warning.  So there…you’ve been warned!

Today’s coddled young people want to up-end the status quo with their street-based agitation.  But in order to do that they must make society uncomfortable to bring about change but yet these coddled street-based agitators, (a.k.a. whiny crybabies), don’t like being made uncomfortable on college campuses and other real world places, so they demand “trigger warnings” and “safe spaces”.  Does anyone besides me see the irony and/or hypocrisy here?

To bring this into perspective from the school of Chicago boy economics…recently the University of Chicago issued a statement telling incoming freshmen it won’t support “Trigger Warnings” or “Safe Spaces”.

Geoffrey Stone, law professor and past provost at the U. of C. said, “The right thing to do is empower the students, help them understand how to fight, combat and respond, not to insulate them from things they will have to face later.”

I totally agree with this statement.  You can’t change the world by being a over-sensitive, coddled crybaby.

Until neXt time…

Black Lives Don’t Matter, I Think?

Well hello fellow zobopians!  Yep, I’m still blogging!  It’s still 2016 in the 21st century and I’m still waiting for my 2001 space odyssey.  We’re 15 years overdue for it!  Oh well, on to pressing matters on Earth.

BlackLivesMatter

Black lives haven’t mattered since…the mid-1990’s.  I blame the Zero-Tolerance policies of those 1990’s.  Instead of sending Black students to the principal’s office, and calling the parent(s), they’re sent to the police station.  Instead of suspending Black students, with a crap-load of homework to be completed upon returning, they’re expelled from the school never to return.  [Good luck you charter schools.]

Yeah…I don’t think Black Lives Matter.  In this world Freedom without Security is useless.  You can say #BlackLivesMatter all you want.  We will always be looking over our shoulders for the rest of our lives.

Black lives, obviously, don’t matter when lives are being lost everyday.  When someone gets killed by police who intentionally sought to deprive someone of their constitutional rights — you can’t get justice!  When someone gets killed by police due to incompetence, bad training or mistakes — you can’t get justice!

You can’t win for losing your lives!

P.S. : In 1857, Chief Justice Roger Taney declared that, black men “had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”  Like I said above, Freedom without Security is useless.

Until neXt time…
