“INSANITY IN INDIVIDUALS IS SOMETHING RARE-BUT IN GROUPS, PARTIES, NATIONS, AND EPOCHS, IT IS THE RULE”. FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE
This new year is only 11 days old and already I am pretty sure it will be the year of Insanity.
Folks are going insane over the new president-elect and his pick of cabinet members, staffers, his hair style and fake bake tan, and more issues than I care to comment about.
Celebrities are using their allotted time at award shows to voice their opinions of how America is going to end up in the toilet instead of thanking the organizations and people who helped them get to the award in the first place.
But the absolute craziest thing I have heard in these past 11 days of 2017 is that Jenna Bush Hager DELIBERATELY melded two top motion pictures staring African Americans in to one movie “cause all civil rights movies are the same”.
OH MY GOSH!
To mess up two movie titles….”Hidden Figures” and “Fences” into “Hidden Fences” when congratulating Pharrell for being nominated, is so not a major catastrophic event! Michael Keaton also called Hidden Figures “Hidden Fences” when presenting the award for best actress but where is the backlash for him. Or what about Al Roker calling Jessica Biel, “Jessica Alba” but his mistake was reshot so the audience did not see his gaff.
Seriously folks? Has it come to this? That we are so thin-skinned that a simple mistake can make national news if not global news? Is there not enough real news to keep us entertained? Or have we become social buzzards, circling one another just waiting for an opportunity to present itself so we can swoop down and start ripping the flesh off of our fellow man?
I fear for humanity and not because of any politician or government policy. I fear for humanity because of the lack of common sense we are exhibiting. The hatred I see all around this world for our fellow humans is at a demonic level.
God save us from ourselves,
Your heartbroken Queen
