The Importance Of Being Extremist

martin

There are many who will read this, and my future blogs and think my thoughts are too radical. They will hate what I write, and with a closed mind they will ignore all intentions and meanings to my words. They will paraphrase what I’m about to write, and twist and distort it until I am an enemy to the popular and common thought of today. I will become a threat to what they believe, and because of that I am to be ignored and exiled. How ridiculous it is to have to live in a world with people that are so close minded and so brainwashed that they neither question the beliefs of the established order, or their own trains of thoughts. It is every man’s civil duty to help eradicate intolerance of this sort to help un-zombify these poor minds and unshackle them from their chains. Because without “the extremists” or “the radicals” in the world, the world would stagnate, with the established order never being questioned and a way of life being frozen in time no matter how despondent the living conditions might be. Imagine a world without the revolutions brought on by Martin Luther King Jr. where the oppression of the black minority was still ever present and encouraged in the South. Whose peaceful sit ins and ideas of a nonviolent Revolution kept the violent ideas and tendencies of black superiority in the mind and followers of Malcolm X in check, and completely changed the lives and the chances of a greater life for every black person in America. Imagine a world without the ideas of Karl Marx whose worry for factory workers living in deplorable working conditions brought on by the Capitalist boom during the 19th century encouraged the ideas of revolution and an attempt at Utopia. And although some of these ideas have not worked and were used and twisted by many for their own gains, it is for sure that these writings went on and encouraged the lower class to empower themselves and begin to work towards a better way of life, and encourage the author Upton Sinclair to write the classic novel, “The Jungle.” A book that literally brought health and safety regulations for workers. These men were definitely extreme on their own beliefs, and although they might not have had it all right, people took these ideas moved the to the middle and used them to change the world we live in and brought opportunities to a lot of deserving people. So instead of ignoring “The Extremist” everyone around you hates, maybe you should take a listen to their ideas and decide for yourself, who knows maybe it’s their ideas that will change the world.
