Today we are digressing from our usual look at real life news items that could be story lines.
This morning I was awakened to a discussion on the radio about Google and Free Speech. The issue was that google decided to follow the high road and ban certain URLs related to an extremist situation. The discussion is that in banning something regardless of content we are giving up our right to Free Speech and that is a horrible thing to do.
You know there are wiser people out there with a great deal of clout who remain silent on this.
Societies built on some kind of moral fiber thrive. There has to be a right or a wrong to things. Morals go out the window and society goes into decline when our foundations are cast aside
This could make for a very uncomfortable five minutes because nothing comes to mind except perhaps moving backwards from my goals, which I consistently do a lot. I would count my life much more successful if I had always moved forward but then I might not have so many amusing tales to tell. My life might have been made up of controlled chuckles rather than silly outrageous laughter had I stayed on course. It is my backwardness that keeps my life interesting.
Driving backwards comes to mind but I don’t do that well. I can tell you that from experience with the odd crunch here and there.
One step forward and two back comes to mind and thank goodness I love to dance because at least then I can make my life’s struggles look like an original dance staggering here and there to my own drummer.
So now that I think of it…backwards isn’t so bad at all! There are not enough ‘google maps’ in the world to keep me moving forward!
