Question via Facebook:
Would you rather live in the past, present, or future?
Let’s take a looksee at each of these and the repercussions I would endure.
The past. I am a woman of questionable birth, born to low society, and a single mother. And I’m weird. So, we’re looking at anywhere from local prostitute, marrying a drunkard, dying before thirty, or being burned alive. Pass.
The present. Whoo! If the present isn’t a royal mess. ‘But _______ is over!’ I hear you shout. No, it’s not. We just finally talk about these issues out loud, which is at least a road to fixing them. But the plain truth of the matter is there aren’t a lot of people interested in changing things.
The future. Dear Universe, please let the world be a better place in the future where the problems that plague our society have been resolved in non-violent manners and all are truly equal. Of course, that’s assuming we haven’t destroyed the planet at that point.
In conclusion, it’s terrible and frightening most days but I’ll stay here. I can at least keep annoying close relatives with my views contrary to theirs and making them uncomfortable when I call them out.
