If you believe in free speech you should watch this.
I must say that I agree with Jim Carrey.
That act represents the death of civility in the United States of America. Unless Will Smith is psychotic, which I’m guessing he’s not. And not just his act but the response to his act, which was mostly nothing significant, represents the death of civility.
I was talking with a friend recently and I mentioned the concept of “fighting words”. Like, “Them’s fightin’ words, Jeb! <spit>”. Well, the last time I checked, there are parts of our semi-retarded nation that uphold the law that if you are spoken to in a certain way then you are permitted to physically assault the speaker. Well isn’t that just so precious!!! It basically enshrines the idea that if your ego is damaged (because you failed to keep it healthy) then whatever happens next is okay.
Which is sort of like where we are with “cancel culture”. People’s feelings get hurt and now there’s a problem. Well, consider yourself lucky if hurt feelings is the worst things that happens to you this year, kid. 🙂 Good luck avoiding all negative energy in the universe!
My solution is to just do your own thing, keep looking forward, onward & upward, and know who you are. And also know that you can’t control anything about what someone else thinks about you so stop wasting time and energy on being concerned about it.
