Hypocrites, Hypocrites Everywhere
The hypocrisy is strong right now. We spoke about how everything is getting exposed, but what's striking me most is how hypocritical both the left and right are being. And there's a good reason for this. We have been lead to believe that we are a product of our labels, that we must adhere to one side of the political spectrum. But that's not how things work. We are multifaceted people with many different views and it's high time we stop putting people in boxes.
Both the left and right can't make up their minds right now. When Trump imposed the travel ban to China , the left was staunchly against it. Now, they are adamantly pro locking down the country and keeping borders closed. On the other side, the right, staunch supporters of closed borders and protectionism are now the ones yelling to open things up. The left who call upon science when talking about climate change are refusing to listen to it now. They listen to the mainstream media's fake science making COVID-19 out to be much worse than it actually is. The right, noted for denying climate science, are now pro science on this matter. Seems like we have an identity crisis on our hands. What do the left and right actually support?
It's easy to see why this is happening. The way we look at politics, the division of left vs.right, is utterly inefficient and damaging. We are all human at the end of the day. And when you support the notion that you must be on one side of things, you are failing to think for yourself. I hope that when this crisis is all said and done with, we can finally let go of this way of thinking. We can't go back to how we did things. We need to change.
