I’M DEFEATED: WHEN THE SOCIAL TENSION BECOMES TOO MUCH

“Too much to keep fighting.”


i’m exhausted

For the past few centuries there have been social strife in America. From Native Americans losing rights and fighting for justice, to African Americans, Women’s rights, Hispanic, and members of the LGBT community. But the issues sometimes can make you feel a little worn out. And that is the point where so many people tap out of the game. We tap out and say I can’t do this anymore. We should just remain separate from each other. But if there are not the people who do fight, then how do some many people get and retain their rights.  Yet the constant fighting does make you ignore a lot in our society.

when you give in

You would think that with so many people willing to not fight things in society would kind of progress. But not without putting up a fight in our country. And that is why to a degree you cannot stop fighting. Because the reason why society has not reached its full potential is because we get a place of comfort. We never want to change things without force since the change is so new and not guaranteed. The same old same is what has worked, but the new is so vulnerable. But there is always a generation pushing for things to change and to counter attack is a group that is used to things being a certain way. And usually when things are a certain way, it only benefits a chosen few. And rest have to deal with whatever they get in life.

does it ever stop

I wonder will there ever come a time where people just exist in a space of existence. The sad reality is that as long as there is a group that feels underrepresented and pushed out there will be tension. But the reality is there will always be a group. Not just because of the inequality, it’s the numbers of are society. You are just going to have this segment, as well as a group that deviates from the norm. My only concern is what will be the next major fight in America? We have seen income disparities, race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation. But we have yet to have a major fight in this country over relationships. What will happen when we finally start to challenge marriage? How will that effect dating and marriage in this country? Maybe people will fight what marriage is in America? Because people themselves need a reason to push back against something, no matter how mundane.

WHEN THERE’S BLOOD IN THE STREET, BUY MORE GUNS: GUNS AND ECONOMICS

Black Rifle

“Safety and security.”


the second amendment

Having the right to bare arms is a right that has been in place in the United States of America going back to the late 1700’s. Yet the amendment was revised in the year 1992, shockingly enough, revisions weren’t made really for almost two centuries. But nonetheless, we still have these rights to bare arms that was laid down by America’s fore fathers.

social over the political

The social aspects of society as it pertains to guns are far different from the political decisions. Protest erupt whenever there is an incident of a mass shooting. And the same outcome, which is nothing because so many Americans have the right to bare arms. Now, could we be seeing a rollback on a lot of the gun laws? Or maybe, just maybe will we see a new revision to the United States Constitution. Because understand, at one point in time, the Thomas machine gun was around. Now, unless you own it as an antique, it’s highly illegal.

mad money

What are the economic impacts of guns on society. Because on one hand, people don’t go out and spend money in areas where gun violence are a problem. But at the same time, anytime mass shootings take place, the sale of firearms increase. So there is this positive and negative effect on the use of guns in our society. Now, no one wants to think of he positive outcomes of gun violence, but from an economic standpoint there are positives. Needing law enforcement officers are the negatives attributed to crime. A person carrying a gun to keep other gunmen in check.

balance

There not only need to be a balance in social and political, but a balance in the mass production of weaponry. But, what we are seeing is the breakdown of what guns are in a society, so what will happen economically? Hand guns will be tougher to rollback, but what will happen to the ownership of high powered rifles the more people fight against them?

REGIONAL SEGREGATION: WILL REGIONS EVER WANT THEIR OWN ECONOMIES AGAIN

“What was in past may be our future.”


united areas

The United States borders as with any other country has went through multiple transformations over the past two hundred years. But could we be seeing another shift in the years to come? Could the United States borders change that could effect the overall economy? What would happen if the United States wanted to have a separate economy based on regions?

It happened in the past at one point in time. That is when the Confederacy ruled in the South. But the cash cow was slavery, and I don’t ever see America returning back to those ways again. But what about other means of commerce.

political strife

Designated areas of America have long been associated with certain political views which are rapidly changing over time. Alabama, for instance, election which recently put a Democrat into power is a landmark victory for them. But a lot of the change came not just because of allegations against senator Roy Moore, but also because of the party associated with Roy.

Yet, the victory rubbed a lot people the wrong way. But also, the victory was great for a lot of people. And elections like this have taken place all over the country which could lead to people removing themselves from certain aspects of American society.

nothing to lose

It all boils down to what do you truly have to lose. Because there are so many areas in America where the employment is drastically low. There are no signs of jobs coming back to these areas, so why not create your own economy. Especially when you observe the Midwest; a region that was dominated by the automotive industry. Now the region which once was the face of America has  been long forgotten.

Because if something does not happen to improve the lives of individuals in certain regions, we could slowly see a rebellious viewpoint of citizens to remove themselves from each other.
