THE EMOTIONAL MANY: SHOULD EVERYONE’S VOICE GET COUNTED

Image result for social media

“Don’t fight it, there’s just too many of them.”


In the event you find yourself in an argument with a community of people via social media, don’t fight it. There are just way too many people out there to fight against the grain. And this is something that the President of the United States is dealing with while in the White House. Never get into bouts, and if they start to smell fear, they attack more. It’s like sharks in the ocean, they smell blood and fear, then next thing you know, you’re in a world-wind of fighting. Then once the argument is over, you leave the situation feeling like crap, and they leave feeling a sense of accomplishment. This is what brings me to ask the question, ” Should everyone who has an opinion be aloud to have their opinion heard?” Just because you passionately feel a certain way does not necessarily mean it means something.

Especially in today’s society where everything is a hashtag and an agenda. Any reason for people to get made at some new topic of interest. Then once you show it the slightest bit of attention, the fire ignites even more. And that’s when you realize that not everyone’s opinion should be heard. But you can’t get that across to advertisers who cringe and coward in fear at the very thought of being labeled anti-anything. Instead of pushing back, they cater to the loud noise. Advertisers don’t want to lose anybody, so they try their best to appease this loud audience. And like I said, you shouldn’t listen to everyone. Sometimes you just have to loss a few people. Hard to do when you are profit maximizing firm, where dollars is everything. Depending on the profession, there is a way to respond to such criticism from the masses. You can either ignore and loss some people, or do like comedians and poke fun at the critics. Because then again, they have a loud voice, but only make up a small percentage of the country.

Which brings me into my next point regarding people who feel like everything they say must be dealt with swiftly. This swift and sensitive bunch are what we call the loud minority. The other group that don’t care are known as the silent majority. The loud group might constitute for about 100,000 people while the silent group is about 10,000,000 people. Problem is, we tend to cave to the 100,000 and give them a voice. A voice that they probably don’t even deserve to have in the first place. And in the end, if that silent group do not speak up and counter the loud group you will continue to see this loud small group have a voice when they shouldn’t have a voice. Advertisers will learn when that silent group finally speaks, that they are the masses, and that the loud group is only in existence to make life more difficult. Considering a lot of times, this loud group are projecting the disdain they have for their own lives onto you.

THE LOUD MINORITY: WHY SO FEW CARRY SO MUCH WEIGHT

“They are the smallest, yet scream the loudest.”


They scream the loudest, get the most frustrated, and always willing to protest the quickest. They are the loud minority in America, and they are growing. They can get your job taken from you, and force you to apologize for statements you make that they don’t like. But is this reality a bit of a distraction because notice I said loud minority. Now don’t get me wrong, the majority does not always rule. There are plenty of instances in history where the majority got it wrong. But this is not like those time periods when people didn’t have any rights. We’re talking in today’s society where people are reaching for anything they can grab.

Whether it’s a comment that a politician has made, or even a celebrity. We have become a society where we love to see each other get into trouble. But like I said before, are we, or is the loud minority at it again. Because as I walk the streets of New York City, I don’t see it. I don’t see a lot of the anger that you see pushed on social media and television. People go about their daily lives, not paying much attention to what is being said out in the world. And that group is known as the silent majority. The group that does care about a lot of the agendas pushed in the world.

The silent majority just want to go to work and make it home to their families without problems. But should the silent always remain silent? Should the silent start to speak up against a lot of the stuff being pushed throughout our society. For example, every kid gets a trophy in sports is not something that the silent group started. It’s something that a chosen few started and it was so loud, the organizations that run these youth sports buckled. And now every kid gets a trophy, and on top of it all, no keeping score. Now, the majority of parents show up today asking why they don’t keep score. But all they get in response is, “That’s just the way it is now.”

But the loud group have also poked their heads into academics as well. Now in school, kids can’t be given failing grades in some schools. And there even cases where if the kid gets a bad grade, they can retake the test or homework assignment more than once. Then, they can take the higher of the three or four scores. Now how is that anything close to reality!!!! It only sets up young people for failure. Because you have to learn to take your lumps when you’re young so can walk through life. It creates this false sense of entitlement when you’re given everything for nothing. Because that’s not how the real world operates.

And, in the end, that is why the silent majority must speak out. Because that false sense of entitlement is making children believe that their 50% or 60%, is the next person’s 100%. We should stop allowing the language policing. We should fight against the snooping in everyone else’s business. If nothing is done, the loud group will take it to a point of no going back if something is not done now. Then, people as a whole will complain, but by then it will be far too late.
