Questions and Contradictions

What is so difficult about wearing a mask?

If is a matter of ensuring public health, sanitation and hygiene, what is the big deal of taking a few precious seconds out of your daily routine to grab that little slab of cloth and hook the two straps behind your ear lobes?

If establishing regulations to improve public sanitation and hygiene is oppressive, why don’t you hear Republicans blaming Democrats for having to drive below 75 miles per hour on the interstate? Why don’t people clamor about lack of freedom when strapping in children with seat belts?

Why are some people always on a mission to find contradiction or pick a fight? If I say down, they will say up. If I say black, they say white and the cycle continues. There is a balance to found here. Trolling is a great pastime to build comradery with your friends or establish connections with other. The sense of humor and creativity in this new label of sarcasm is an outlet I enjoy, but like most things in our society, there are segments of the population who take it to extremes on either end.

What would happen if the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement created its own version of the flag of the United States like a ‘Thin Blue Line’ or ‘Thin Red Line?

The questions and contradictions in our culture are endless, but I know we can come together to find a resolution.
