The extreme rise in egocentric socials trends and living in a culture of instant gratification has lead to the rise of individual values being forced upon by the collective whole. This has created a culture that uses bullying tactics to forces eccentric ideal or nontraditional values on people who don’t want to have to deal with them.
With many on the left pushing for legislation such as the need for binary gender licenses and bathroom laws in which government is getting to involved in the daily lives of the American people and needs to take a step back. Our founding fathers created a country based on free speech and limited government; something that we continue deviate away from. Liberal legislation and the legislative branch has now not only allowed these people to impose beliefs on others not only accepting values they don’t believe but forcing them to change them in order to service their agendas.
A significant example of this is related to gay marriage, forcing catholic churches to conduct wedding ceremonies not only breeches freedom of religion, but is a perfect example of how there is no longer a good separation of church and state. This excessive breech of privacy and forcing certain values onto people who don’t want them is completely unconstitutional. If you are homosexual and want to get married go somewhere who accepts you and plenty of places will, but don’t force people who don’t believe the same things as you to accept you. We live in a country where there is a place for everybody but just because your values are not in the majority don’t force it on the masses.
This has created a culture where conservatives or people with opposing ideals cannot speak out without being called bigots, racists and ignorant. I personally have no problems with how other people live their lives, but I let THEM live THEIR lives and don’t force people to accept how I live mine. Its pretty much common sense but this issue has gotten so deeply polluted into our government that now it is an American politics issue, and people are scared to speak out or say there mind on controversial issues. We have over 360 million people in this country we won’t agree on everything, but we should allow people to live their lives without infringing on the rights of others.
Our founding fathers would be distraught if they saw how our government operates in todays day and age. They envisioned a country where people were free to have individual values and weren’t forced to agree with the masses, but at the same time the masses have their rights protected as well. The only way we move forward starts at the ground level. The common people need to take back their culture and disrupt this oppression of free speech that our country faces today. We need to come together, as a society to impose change on this oppressive system that limits and inhibits the freedom of speech.
