Cognitive dissonance is the mental conflict that occurs when beliefs or assumptions are contradicted by new information.
What about when the information is conflicting? Then, inevitably, our beliefs and assumptions will be conflicted and contradicted. Seeds of mental chaos.
We are being scatter-bombed with cognitive dissonance. The effect, looking outward, is social dissonance. Long-held societal beliefs and assumptions are being contradicted by new information. And disinformation. It is causing conflict. And social chaos.
Religion of peaceophobe
Islam and it’s practitioners view women as second class people. They are prohibited from driving, going into public unchaperoned, and in many Muslim cultures are subject to the practice of female genital mutilation. Homosexuals are executed in Muslim countries, usually by throwing from a roof. Nearly all of the terrorist attacks in the US are carried out by militant Muslims. The religion of Islam considers all non-Muslims to be infidels- which allows for legal and sanctioned enslaving, raping, and killing of same. Lying to infidels- taqqiya- is encouraged to gain an advantage, a majority believe jihad and terrorism is justified, and killing an infidel is a ticket to paradise.
But… If you say anything other than “Islam is religion of peace”, you are an Islamophobe. If you criticize the religion, you are a bigot. If you believe we should restrict immigration from problematic Islamic countries, you are a bigoted Islamophobe racist.
It takes a village
“We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families.”- Melissa Harris-Perry, MSNBC. This is a re-statement of Hillary Clinton’s book It Takes a Village. Both are an argument for social collectivism. It is a basic tenant of socialism/communism, that argues social inequalities handicap many children, and unfairly privileges others. The destruction of the core nuclear family is the real objective.
But… If you are the child of an illegal alien at the US border, then by all that’s holy, the village has no right whatsoever to infringe upon your parental rights, and cannot under any circumstances separate these children from the parents they belong to. It doesn’t even matter if they are really your kid or not.
The hand that robs the cradle
Abortion is a legal medical procedure whereby a pregnancy is terminated by destroying and removing the fetus. The developing embryo is a fetus- not legally, ethically, or medically to be connected to a stage of human development- thus absolving those involved in the practice of any legal or moral jeopardy. It is a woman’s right to choose.
But… If you commit a crime against the pregnant mother or commit a crime and cause the involuntary termination of the pregnancy, you can be charged with murder for the death of the unborn child. ?
Antifaschistiche Aktion- “Antifa”.
Despite whatever ideology these anarchists claim to defend, Antifa’s actions ironically reveal nothing more than a group of violent, fascist, Nazi imitators.
Get a better paying gender
There are no biological genders. Gender is a construct, and is a product of cognition and social behaviors rather than biology. The current male/female paradigm is repressive, as there are now in excess of 30 recognized/suggested categories of gender. Some propose the elimination of the term altogether.
But… We are told that one of the great sins of our time, one of the main deficiencies in our society, crippling us on every level- is the gender pay gap.
Between which genders?
which is it?
