Do you ever get to the end of the day and feel like, “what in the HECK is going on?!?”
I mean, it just seems like everything, and I mean everything, is completely upside down!
Nothing makes sense. UNLESS……..
You see, there are two different world views, two different mindsets, lenses if you will, through which everyone sees and then interprets everything that happens in their worlds. One could look at something like the Kyle Rittenhouse trial we will see it through one of two worldviews. One worldview will say, “Whoa, that dude just murdered a guy and tried to murder several others! He needs to pay for that!!” The other worldview would say, “Man, bless that guy’s heart! He was being attacked by rioter after rioter and he had to shoot those people because he felt threatened by their baseball bats, skate boards and big rocks that they used to hit him on the head. And that one guy actually pointed a gun at him! I would have shot those folks, too!”
Both view points come from a mindset that has been formulated by years of opinions, society’s input and personal experience!
The first comes from the background belief that all guns are bad and that all who have guns or use guns, especially upon others, are simply murderers and very bad people. The latter viewpoint comes from a person who has a bit of a Constitutional mindset, perhaps someone who has been personally threatened as Mr. Rittenhouse was, or perhaps knew someone who had been. They both are sincere, they both believe they are right, and they both go immediately to judgment of someone involved in the story. The former would judge Mr. Rittenhouse as a murderer (after all, he killed someone)! They also see him as someone who needs to punished accordingly. The latter would judge him as a young man upon whom rioters ganged up on and attacked. So, he, Mr. Rittenhouse, did what any red-blooded American would have done, exercised his God-given right of self defense! The second viewpoint would judge the rioters as the guilty party’s and see Mr. Rittenhouse as one who simply defended himself!
The two views couldn’t be any more different! They are different in their surface understanding of what happened. They are totally different in their opinion about what Mr. Rittenhouse DID. They are different in who they judged as right and wrong and in who they believe should be punished or exonerated. So, since they are both so very different, we must assume that one viewpoint would be the TRUTH and thus, right and the other view would be UNTRUTHFUL and thus WRONG. But RIGHT and/or WRONG in whose view? In the two different viewpoints presented here, they would both feel that they are each the TRUTH and thus RIGHT. But, that simply cannot be true in this particular story.
So, in essence, working through the issues and trying to find the actual TRUTH in stories like this, is what the BusterBlog is all about. How do you sort through stories, world events, idealogical stances and society’s quirks that slap us in the face every single day, and find the TRUTH ? And how do we get to the Truth? What’s the process for thinking through this stuff so that we can develop a means for landing on the island of common sense and reality on our own? I want to help you get to the place where you feel like you can literally sort out what a good friend of mine used to call, “s m a r m”! SMARM is the “junk” attached to a story, the fluff, the overload of personal ideology and secular worldview that often times taints an event to the point where you can’t see the Truth. I want to offer you a path, a standard to be applied, that will help you find the Truth and the best way to understand, “WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON?”!
Common Sense isn’t too common these days. Let’s have some fun slapping it on thick to the crazy, common senseless stories that are thrown at us every day.
I’m looking forward to it. See what we have to share every day. Thanks!
