There was a time in my life when I was not happy with the income that I was making, and would take any extra jobs that came my way. So when someone recommended I fix a man's Windows XP computer in the early 2000s, I jumped at the opportunity. Little did I know that this would be one of the most insane experiences of my life. When I arrived at his home, I noticed an iron cross in his room, like the old ones from Adolph time's. But being from a similar Eastern European community, I thought it might just be a coincidence, maybe he does not even know what it is, he just thinks is a cross. However, as we started talking, I realized that this man was a political nut. He began to speak about the legionnaire movement, which was a fascist militia, and even brought out a copy of Mein Kampf from his library. I was shocked and couldn't believe what I was seeing. I couldn't take such a book in public, especially in Canada. But I had to keep my cool, so I refused politely and tried to change the subject. However, he persisted and started talking about his theories on race, claiming that the Asian community was smarter now. I couldn't take it anymore and told him that I had read the book already, so in a way, yes, his theories fall apart because now the Asian community rules. 😄 That was an ignorant statement by myself too, but just wanted to stick to him where it hurts him. Anyhow, I managed to change the subject eventually and he was happy with his computer. God knows what he did on it after. That's the battle with every fanatic, changing the subject. Years later, the same man called me up to do some maintenance work. Now, some time passed, I thought to myself, he is just an old fool talking nonsense. As we were conversating, he mentioned that he had gone to school in Moscow. I couldn't resist and asked him how he could have been both a legionnaire fascist and a communist? To my surprise, he responded with the same cold and calculating tone, "It is not about fascism and communism, you go where the power is!" Looking back on that experience, I can't help but feel disgusted by the twisted mindset of fascists and communists. They may have different ideologies, but their ultimate goal is always the same - power and control. And it's always the innocent people who suffer the consequences at the hands of twisted men like this. Now, he could have talked nonsense just to impress the computer guy as his old wife was beside him the first time, but I don't think so, and I thought very long and hard to look him up and find out his history, whose lives he destroyed by reporting, and in which cities but that would have made me like him. Ultimately, Karma and Old Age probably got him. I moved cities since then, so I did not have the chance to interact again. Maybe for the better, exposure to such minds only brings trouble and disease. Not sure how he weaseled his way into this country. Take this story as you please, satire or not. 😎
The United States authorities' inaction
Bob Miller posted a topic in Moral & Ethical IssuesU.S. authorities continue to be inactive, despite the calls for tightening control over firearms. In other countries, the authorities take drastic measures for several week, but what about us? Nothing.. The New York Times believes that the US is already used to the news of executions in schools, churches, etc. But why should civilians die because of the legality of weapons and look around on the street fearing their own death? And D. Trump only expresses his condolences!
