Be Reasonable

10 October 2012, 08:25

Be reasonable.

Be reasonable is emotional blackmail and in most cases beware when it is used as often what you are asked to do is not reasonable.

The people who use it are not trying to help. Are not promoting your rights, safety, health, happiness or well-being. They are trying to take something from you and want you to give it up or not value it.

All such arguments to be reasonable will not be based on scientific facts but emotional arguments. You don't want to look ugly, be reasonable and buy our beauty products. You don't want criminals to have guns, support our gun control laws. These are just some of the false emotional blackmail arguments we have had or get every single day.

Gun control in particular has like apartheid laws become supported by many who fear crime, of being robbed raped and hijacked because government has failed to control crime and arrest criminals.

Crime and the horror and traumatic shock is very real. They believe the emotional blackmail of being reasonable and the false data presented to support persecution and oppression of a segment of society that wishes to protect itself and remain free, in the belief it will help them. They like the supporters of apartheid laws are willing to watch persecution and oppression.

A comparison might be instructive and enlightening in seeing how oppression is in fact supported and gains a foot-hold on society.

If the ANC had supported apartheid laws and requested government to improve service delivery of application, registration and processing what credibility and support would anyone have given the ANC but the Nationalists and supporters of apartheid laws?

If the ANC had told blacks it represented them and then watched saying absolutely nothing as they were dispossessed of land and houses and not even compensated what support could the ANC have gained?

If the ANC had fought for compensation and forgotten completely or made less important that the owners had been robbed by government, of what use would compensation have been and how much support would anyone have given this effort?

Yet those who have fallen into the trap of be reasonable and believe the lies the prevarications and inducements to be reasonable, suffering from crime and looking for relief cling to the false promise of emotional blackmail. You can be safe if you support gun control. No you cannot be safe from criminals or government. Both prefer that victims and citizens are disarmed so they cannot prevent the fate intended for them.

Support for gun control is support for oppression and no acceptable evidence exists to justify gun control. None, like apartheid there are reams of false evidence but not one or the smallest claims can be shown to be valid. Beware those who use “be reasonable” in any way shape or form.
