Benighted Ones, Unite!

“That’s the control freaks’ city up ahead,” Ciara told Kat.  “They promise you perfection but it’s really garbage.  Sometimes they call it common sense, sometimes tolerance, but it’s just an excuse to control you.”

“Oy I agree,” said Kat.  “You know the  saying, ‘If something seems too good to be true…’  

“Here’s what let’s do,” Ciara went on.  “We’ll show them we’re too smart to give a rat’s butt what they think.  We’ll just live our lives over here because we’re not missing out on anything.”



They continued their meal quite happily.





Over the years I’ve gotten plum sick and tired of proponents of tolerance and common sense presuming to pass sentence upon others, as far as whether or not we’ve EARNED our rights.   Rochelle   leads us weekly in Friday Fictioneers, and this week her ever~faithful sidekick DALE even supplies the photo prompt.

      I’ve never been able to stand the word intolerance because it has ideological connotations and serves no legitimate purpose whatsoever in a normal vocabulary. You’re right though. Each side has its share of instigators with a nasty agenda. Shalom

    Good for Ciara and Kat. At least they will be happy. Living on the border they will not be controlled yet they may enjoy the perks. Till the time, controllers decide to raise a boundary wall.
