I’m hearing daily about “the new normal.” Consultants and so called Thought Leaders are constantly telling us that we are in a ‘new normal.’ Society, both social and professional have changed to the point that we must embrace the new ways things are done. This is a result of the pandemic, technology, and frankly, the desires of the great unwashed. I want to work from home, I want to communicate over Zoom, I want to be left alone. It’s the “new normal.”
We are told that sports are no longer competitive, but that everyone should be a winner. We are told that one may select one’s sex, and change it at will. We are told that the “M” and “W” on restrooms mean nothing. It’s the ‘new normal.’
Small children, ages 3 to 8, are exposed to sexual grooming, and given no time to be kids. Their innocence is being taken away. It’s the “new normal.” Police are the enemy, their budgets are cut, they receive no support from their city governments. It’s the “new normal.”
Gasoline prices are twice what they were a year ago. Inflation had taken hold in every aspects of our lives. Homelessness is rampant, crime is on the increase. It’s the “new normal.”
We just have to accept the “new normal” and nod our heads. At least that’s what our Thought Leaders tell us. But I wonder.
How many times have you heard coworkers tell you how they hate ‘Zoom’ meetings. How many conversations have you had when people tell you how much they miss the business and social life of actually going to the office. How many companies are actually beginning to require their employees to show up.
Is not the illogic of being able to select one’s sex, particularly at a very early age, becoming obvious. Having actual males competing with females in sports is not working out. Doesn’t simply thinking about the issue show one how crazy it is?
Shouldn’t children be allowed to be kids without involving them conversations long before they are able to handle it. Does that make sense.
The cops aren’t perfect, but they are on the front line, and give their lives daily to protect us. Don’t you think they need some support?
“The New Normal” makes no sense. I think what it means is that its time to give up. Just retreat into our homes, and accept whatever comes. So be it.
I just can’t buy that. Change is always going to happen, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that its for the good. Take my advice. Look out your window. See what’s really happening. Make up your mind. For yourself. Just because someone said something at a college, or in silicon valley, or in front of the city council doesn’t make it good or right.
Have the courage to think for yourself.
