Middle ground

I get very little to no comments and seldom a like to almost everything I post on Facebook. This leads me to thinking that no matter how I try, I make no difference in the world whether I am here or not. Yet none of this, as hurtful as it is, can change my inner desire to write my opinions on situations. Writing has always been my true passion.

I just read about another attack on an individual by a person who obviously must have an insanity issue. For someone to be an extremist my logic tells me there is both common sense and empathy missing from that person’s make-up. Blaming the country or the world’s issues and making it the cause of the individual’s insanity is where the problems begin. Those things may be the contributing factors in putting the individual “over the edge” but not the root of the problem. The root problem is responsible for the brutal attacks made by these individuals. If examined, I am certain these individuals would be found to have serious problems in deciphering right from wrong. The rest of society needs to step back and stop jumping to conclusions and making accusations that have no basis in the nonsensical actions performed by individuals who have literally lost their ability to reason and cause real harm to themselves and others. Clearly that is a sign of pending or current mental disease. The cause is not the outward influences on this individual. The blame by society in whole needs to be factual. And the fact that there are unstable people in the world exists. So does the fact that evil exists as well as goodness. So before jumping to conclusions that fit our own personal needs, we all must take a step back and place blame where it belongs, which is at the root of an individual’s illness and that is almost always within their own minds.

I mentioned before that evil exists, my experiences in life has given me the right to state that as a fact. Dependent upon an individual’s own actions can an evil classification be determined. If discovered through thorough investigation and examination it is then determined that evil does exist in an individual it most certainly should be addressed as such and be dealt with by the authorities who handle evil. There are both morale and legal rules in place that through the decades have helped in doling out punishment once this determination is justified.
Today, it seems to me, that the majority of the human race is expressing a tendency toward extremism in their own personal lives and beliefs, thereby causing more issues for themselves and others and is rightfully classified as insanity. I also think that could very well be the root cause of all the world’s problems … creating a new and under explored disease…. Extremism.

We are truly missing a vital component in our ability to be fair and just but by maintaining our core values (which can clear up misconception and assumed reasons)… is the foundation for a middle ground. This area in the ability to reason currently appears to be missing in societies the world over. With a middle ground the freedom to weigh the reasonings, look at circumstances and investigate actions of individuals throughout their entire lives is how fairness becomes paramount and whether it’s insanity as a root cause or it’s just pure evil as the root. It isn’t our place to judge this but it is our responsibility to determine it. Only then can we make a statement or accusation that is both fair and just.

It isn’t easy nor is it quick. It takes patience, understanding, experience, and empathy to be a person who has a true position classified as a Centrist or Middle grounder. It takes a strong backbone to be ridiculed, scoffed at and ignored. It takes dedication for fairness, equality and understanding to be developed within a person. It takes observation, an open mind and heart as well as a desire for the appropriate justice to be dealt to an individual who has caused harm. As I stated earlier not an easy stance to find oneself standing in. Yet, more and more middle grounders need to pick up the gauntlets and face the challenges presented on almost a daily basis. We need to be the leaders that this and other countries need right now. As simplistic as this may sound to those who do not deal with deep thinking, you are right, it is idealistic in its simplicity. However, it is also, solely in my opinion, the basic foundation of a middle class of people. Here is where the real purpose of having a middle class or middle grounder group of people works best for solving the serious problems the human race faces everyday.

Jumping to conclusions, making accusations, classifying every situation as either leftist or right-winged, remaining uncaring for other’s opinions, all of this is the recipe for destroying a society of fair minded individuals. Believing in human frailty, trusting in our ability for understanding circumstances, and recognizing extremism as inherently a problem for society as a whole is a recipe for a fair and just world. When harm is caused for whatever the reason it is wrong. That’s just a simple fact in life and repeating myself, it should have an appropriate solution. If it’s investigated root cause is absolutely determined as insanity the solution should be doled out, if it’s investigated root cause is pure evil evil this too should be dealt with appropriately. At no time is it necessary to jump to immediate conclusions nor make allegations or accusations that have no basis in the root cause of the actions. Become a middle grounder. Seek the roots, nurture the good parts and weed out the bad ones. Bask in the glory of a beautiful country that is tended by middle grounders instead of extremists and/or insanity. Find the way to revive the foundation we all have inside ourselves that thrives on fairness, justice and caring, which is the very basis of a middle class/middle grounder.

And that is, The way I see it, here in Jackson.

As an average, American born woman I've decided to write and share my thoughts and beliefs in a blog. This blog will be very simple and hopefully click with the rest of the people out there, who feel as I do, but just can't express it with words, on a variety of subjects. I'm not a researcher. I'm not a scholar. I'm not anything other than an average American who has opinions about a multitude of issues and I'm tired of holding them inside myself and bending the ears of my family and close personal friends. I'm not claiming I'll always get it "right". I'm not claiming any political or religious affiliations. What I am claiming is my privilege as an American to exude free speech. I will be honest, straightforward and probably extremely wordy. At times I may share my own photos or my own recipes or just my own gripes, but most times I will attempt to share how my peers feel about current issues and why my generation of friends and acquaintances can't grasp society's lack of common sense today. I may unintentionally offend people, I will absolutely make mistakes and errors because I am first and foremost a human being and we all know no one is perfect. I most likely will never have facts and figures and I mean NEVER. This blog will totally express how I see things and I expect there will be plenty of counter opinions and possible argumentative theories about what I will express so I will respect that and accept it as my risk for writing this blog. Just having the option in this great country of ours to create a blog, is to me a privilege I would defend to the end!

Won't you tell me what you think?
