Lunacy of the Left

When was the last time you've seen kids playing in the streets in groups.

When we were kids the last thing we wanted to do was sit alone indoors in seclusion.

It was punishment to be stuck indoors unable to socialize with our friends.

The streets and parks were our social media.

1/3 of youth have no spirituality. How do you fill that emptiness?

I wouldn't want to be an imprisoned child for 18 years. How do you discover who you are when cut loose at 18? You can't so you struggle desperately to find an identity and latch on to the first thing that makes you feel included even if it's a jaded ideology.

I agree with everything but your 'spirituality part.


Someone's belief, or not, in anything spiritual doesn't make them a better person. That "emptiness" can be filled with lots of things that has nothing to do with spirituality. My brother's family don't really have any spirituality, yet my SIL and niece constantly volunteer for things like food banks, helping the homeless, making meals, etc.


But the rest, sadly, I do agree with. And am thankful that my brother and SIL are raising my niece to be an amazing person despite the social media BS.

That isn't spirituality. That is community involvement. It's noble but sharing is purly human nature.

You might be tieing Religion to spirituality and that's okay.

Spirituality goes far beyond Religion.

Without experiencing something, how the hell would you know it was missing from your life?

Sharing isn't just purely human nature.


So I guess then I should ask to clarify what you mean by Spirituality?


I also think that the emptiness can still be filled by what you call 'community involvement', and thus do not necessarily need to have someone be spiritual.

It appears your family has spirituality and put it to great use in their community , they should be complimented. Organized religion is necessary for spirituality.

That should read not necessary.

Spirituality isn't an action, a string of words or a lifestyle.

Those are outward. Spirituality is inwards, personal, a sense of calm, a mitigation of fears, believing in yourself, rational thought, control of emotion, knowing what you are capable of and most importantly acceptance of the rotten as being on par with the good.

You can't achieve that by following the digital herd or by seeking approval of the herd, isolation and pepetually lashing out in anger.

There are 2 paths to happiness. Indifference or acceptance of an imperfect world.

I accept that I'm not perfect and the world isn't perfect but be damned if I'll lash out in rage trying to make everyone else around me perfect when I know I'm not.

I can go hand out sammiches but is because of spiritual endeavours or is it ego?

That should be an 'Amen' if I'm not mistaken as the term you used has to do with what the body is doing. (I'm not going to research that term for you)

Spirituality is a force that you can't see, feel or hear!

That's... an interesting definition of Spirituality.


I don't see Spirituality as the same as you though, so... I agree it's an inward, personal thing but that's about it.


As for your question... only you can answer that. I know for my SIL, it's for a sense of helping others and making the world a better place. It's something to teach my niece about how to be a decent person, and that others are just as important as she is. To me, that's not ego, that's Spiritualness...

Organized religion is for those who fear going to hell.
Spirituality is for those who have already been there.

Climate has been changing for 2 billion years so what is there to deny? Statistics tell us we had spells of more severe weather in the 1930s and 40s. My dad used to talk a lot about the winter of 1936- 37. I recall the winter of 1950, seen nothing like it since.

Here is a fine example of the spirit of humanity.

OUST MP PETITION

42,000 people sign petition urging Labour MP to resign after tweeting victims of grooming gangs should be quiet

MORE than 42,000 people have called on a prominent Labour MP to resign after she called on victims of Asian sex abuse gangs to keep quiet "for diversity".

The Sun revealed last week that Naz Shah retweeted and "liked" a post on Twitter that said: "Those abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need to shut their mouths. For the good of diversity."


Labour MP Naz Shah shared a message online telling Rotherham sex abuse victims to 'shut their mouths'

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/435839...weet-petition/

The biggest party on the left in the UK in terms of members and representation is the Labour Party
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Left

Now there is the loony left in action. Talk about "spirituality"! LOL, since when are the grooming gang "MUSLIMS" mentioned here, actually called "Asians" in reality?

A MUM and her lesbian lover tore off her nine-year-old son's penis before beheading him because he reminded her of her dad.

Mum Rosana C‚ndido, 27, and Kacyla Pessoa, 28, of Brazil, stabbed the boy over a dozen times and removed all the skin from his face before butchering his body.
