I’m seeing all these people protesting over being told to wear masks. Protesting over being told to stay home to help slow the spread of Coronavirus. Fighting and arguing in stores because of mask rules. I hear some of these people say that they refuse to wear a mask because they refuse to “let the government tell them what to do” or they “don’t want to be a sheep”. I just can’t get over how stupid all of this looks to me.
The government tells you to send your kids to school everyday. You complain about how schools teach you nothing that you can use in your everyday life. You complain about how teachers and other school staff treated you when you were in school. But you don’t protest about that. You continue to take your kids there everyday.
The government tells you that you have to work 8+ hour shifts on jobs that you hate to make enough money to take care of yourself and/or your family. You complain about how shitty the bosses and supervisors are. You complain about how hard or stressful the work is. You complain about how the jobs pay you peanuts. But you still go to them everyday. And you don’t protest.
The government tells you that you have to pay for life insurance, car insurance, and health insurance. You complain about how all these things are scams. You complain about how much all these things cost. But you still pay for them anyway. And you don’t protest.
The government allows garbage to be promoted to you and your children through radio and television. You complain about how everything on TV and radio is about sex, drugs, and violence. You complain about how the women in these industries can only succeed if they’re hypersexualized. But you continue to watch and listen to it everyday. And you allow your kids to watch and listen to it too. And you don’t protest.
The government tells you that you have to vote for politicians to govern over you every four years. You complain about how these politicians are horrible and do nothing for you. You complain about how the government is constantly giving you the choice between bad or worst in every election. But you continue to vote anyway. And you don’t protest.
The government tells you that you have to pay taxes every year. You complain about how high the taxes are. You complain about how the government wastes your taxes on things that don’t benefit you, like bombing innocent people in other countries. But you continue to pay taxes every year. And you don’t protest.
You talk about how the government telling you to wear a mask and stay home during a pandemic is the government “trying to control you”, but NEWS FLASH! The government has been controlling you YOUR WHOLE LIFE! You’ve been a sheep YOUR WHOLE LIFE! And you’ve done absolutely NOTHING about it. But you WILL get up and protest and throw a fit and fight over a damn mask. I don’t get it!
All these things all of us complain about the government doing to us. Why don’t we ever protest the government? Why do some people protest over the most trivial things? Is it fear?
I believe that these people actually do want to protest against the government, but they’re too afraid to protest over big issues. They’re too afraid to acknowledge and address huge issues. So they pick trivial issues to protest about. It’s sad and it sucks. This backwards protesting needs to go!
