Social Conduct

You've heard me rant more than once on issues that boil down to this concept. Maybe I'm idealistic and old-fashioned in this way, but I do still believe there is a "social contract" that one follows, a set of ethics and responsibility that you adhere to with the rest of the world, We all have to live here on this rock, together, and it works out a lot better when we get along, and just keep a few simple principles in mind. You know them, they are obvious, we learned them in kindergarten, for the most part: courtesy, sharing, taking turns, working together, no name calling, no hitting, etc.

And if this does not exist, then it damn well should. It hurts me to think that we actually have to have legislation to deal with these issues, because that means humans really are that stupid and useless. Is it any wonder I speak and act as if I am above them? Is it any wonder that I refer to "humans" with the implication that I am not one of them?

Let me give you today's example of the low-lifes of the world in action. According to this article in the Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal (requires registration; use username: joecool@bugmenot.com, password: noinfo4u), we have some woman walking into a pizza place, and just cutting right into the line (makes me want to shake her and scream "there is no banana!"). Some guy behind her is on the phone to his girlfriend, and he sarcastically remarks that he's gonna be a little later than he thought, due to this act. The woman hears it, and begins a loud, angry tirade about the guy. When the store manager comes to deal with the situation, she spits on him, then goes back to yelling at the guy, to the point of reaching out and slapping him. She then goes and gets her 6'4", 320# gorilla of a boy friend and yells at him to "take care of this white motherfucker". GorillaMan proceeds to pummel the guy, resulting in a black eye, a broken eye socket, a chipped tooth, and a concussion. they finally turn and leave, but not before GorillaMan takes the guy's cellphone. The final insult? No one in the store even batted an eyelash. They all just stood there and watched...hell, the guy at the front just hung out with his drink and pointedly ignored the whole thing.

Watch The Whole Incident Here

This whole thing makes me sick and disgusted. She just walks in and ignores the line there, then gets angry for having the action being pointed out. Spitting on the manager? Real classy. And who was the one that resorted to racism? She was. And then there's GorillaMan, blindly lashing out. He got four years in prison for the assault. She got six months (note: mother of five...another welfare clan in the making, eh?) on a misdemeanor assault charge, which she's served. Now, they county prosecutors are bringing a felonious assault charge against her, which seems to be a violation of double jeopardy laws, but we'll see how that goes. What kicks my ass here, though is that she says she never made the racist remark...which is clearly audible and visible on the videotape. She also says that she's "living this day by day", wishes "it would go away", and says "I wish I could have my life back. It's a scary feeling that my freedom is still in jeopardy." Yeah? Welcome to justice, bitch.

Lastly, I'm fuckin' floored by the apathy of the other patrons. OK, the guy was a bull-necked lump, but, damn, how could they just stand there and watch it happen like that, and not even react? It's like they didn't care...and sadly, they probably didn't. I don't know about you or where you are, but I'd have jumped in there and tried to drag him off of the guy, and I'd like to hope that the kind of places I'd be, people would have joined me. For that matter, I'd also like to think that this kind of bullshit wouldn't happen, but the flaw in that theory is that this is Earth, and it's populated, primarily, by a bipedal species that is little better than the primates from whom it "evolved".

God damn it, I shouldn't be this worked up about this, but...no. No, I take that back. I SHOULD be worked up over it. And so should you. you should be outraged that fuckers like these exist and continue to not only run free, but procreate and bring up more children who are taught these "values", to continue the cycle of stupidity. And I don't just mean the attackers, I also mean the dumb-struck mongoloids who stood idly by and let it happen. Far as I'm concerned, they're responsible for that guy's pain as well.

Look, fuckers, it's not that hard. Just give a shit. Give a shit about your fellow man, care about HIS safety and well-being for a change, and encourage it in others. Raise your children to share, to care, to help and do right. Stop worrying so much about getting what you are shoving around to get, and look a little farther than your own grasping hands. Try to become something bigger than human. Evolve, for fucks sake.

Once again, as with so many times, I quote Spider Jerusalem: "I hate it here." I hate living in a world that condones and accepts this sort of behaviour. I'm probably preaching to the choir here but, FUCK, man...
