I don't give my opinions on things I think are awful very often as I don't want to cloud other people's experience, but I will point out awful ideas that constrain the individual for the sake of an artificially created and hyped social good, if I think it's necessary.
Expensive medical procedures and products, kindly paid for by insurance companies and government agencies, and indirectly us, That are supposed to help us and make our life longer and better, but mind you: is all this necessary?
And conflict.Which may be why Jesus said he didn't come to bring peace but to bring a sword (Matthew 10:34).The truth, when strongly felt and powerfully expressed, is not pleasing for everybody, particularly those invested in the lie you expose with your words.
