I live in a society, where illegal behaviour like regular illegal drug use, abuse, domestic violence… are all justified and if you say anything to state an opinion on this ….. you are labelled ‘judgmental’.
I also live in a society where generalising negatively about the police, has become a sport. Yes there are rogue cops and they need to be fully dealt with. But, they are not a reflection of all police. But those who want to see it that way, will.
I have conversations with people and they condone and justify illegal drug use – like it’s a normal part of life. It isn’t. It is illegal and part of being a decent human being, is being a law abiding citizen. That has become lost within the myriad of increasingly wrong behaviours condoned in society.
Yes, there may be reasons people take drugs, but that doesn’t make it okay. It doesn’t make someone ‘bad’ or ‘evil’ as some may assume from me voicing this. But, it’s not okay. It’s criminal activity, that enables and encourages further harmful and criminal activity.
Abuse and domestic violence may be occurring for certain reasons, but that never makes it okay, or condonable, or justifiable.
We live in a society quick to condone bad, wrong, immature, illegal behaviour. And not make people accountable enough for their actions.
Where having an opinion about this, is considered judging someone. That being the ‘go to’ label for all opinions different to what someone wants to believe.
And where police are increasingly seen as the ones who are ‘wrong’ for doing the increasingly dangerous, thankless, difficult job they do, daily.
