Wadding my way through social media this morning, I came across a post that exemplifies what many people feel in regards to varying issues our country faces today; I'm referring to the notion of 'mind your own business'. Here is just one example: "...I am for humanity. I am for kindness, and compassion, I am for minding your own business [my emphasis added], and tending your own life instead of putting so much energy into what is or isn't right for others. I am for collective consciousness in which we recognize each other as beautiful and courageous and messed up and broken and doing the best we can, without having to prove who has it worse, who is more right in being offended, who is better, or more knowledgeable or more entitled to respect, or preferential treatment..." Given this stance and making one adhere to this stance who sincerely believes it; I ask that they not exercise their right to vote and encourage people who run for government (or other positions) to cease running. Why would I ask that? When representatives run for government, they are making it their business to presume they know what the public wants based on its own business. What happens is, politicians take a handful of like-minded business from voters who want to see their own business become law/be heard, and lump them into an ideology which in turn forms political parties. Those parties then make it their business to presume said business is best for the entire country, all for whom cannot have an opinion because they are to mind their own business. Can anyone else see how silly it would be if we all minded our own business? Have any of you been told to "mind your own business"?
