Recent Protests and Moral Justice

I know that I am not the only one in being aghast at a number of the scenes which have emerged in the media over the last day or two. People who started out protesting in regards to a dreadful incident in America now appear to have lost their reason and so are behaving in the nihilistic way. Social media is awash with hate and vengeance, with normal folks lashing out and demanding the destruction of anything they prefer to take against. There have even been people calling for Gandhi’s statue being torn down, claiming that they was a racist. Where will pretty much everything madness end? I find it much more disturbing that academics plus the media seem intent on whipping things up in a frenzy without regard to consequences. We should all grieve at racial injustices, yet I have seen no protests for people poor migrants treated as slaves in Libya or marches for the Uighurs in China or protesting against killing, persecuting minorities in numerous parts of the earth? There are multiple injustices nowadays that warrant attention, but they are routinely ignored, can you explain that? Whose agenda is now being driven? Surely, all lives matter. If we continue with the logic of somewhere will things lead with this all tearing down of statues, is Rome being dismantled because doing so was built by slaves, must we rid the globe of the pyramids of Egypt simply because were built by slaves? People on the past were of time. They often held views that any of us find offensive, without a doubt people centuries from now will be upon us concentrating on the same distaste. We need a kinder, more responsible, plus much more tolerant world, not merely one filled with people that seem to really enjoy hate.

We all hold the right to express our opinion because it is well protected and respected in lots of developed societies. I strongly assume that everyone`s individual views needs to be respected and must not be threatened. However, it’s particularly important for all of us to understand that you’ve a clear distinction between might know about say and the way we say, our conduct, not the information. Our conduct needs to be with the distinctive line of societal moral, rules and parameters. If our freedom of expression or activities causes serious disorder, violence and is the opposite of societal values, creates disharmony this could be seen as misuse of freedom, unlawful whereby our freedom of expression may be challenged and restricted with the authorities. We all contain the right to protest. However, after we enjoy the essence of human rights, we have to also make responsibilities for human wrongs. This is when we are the moral justice. Free debate, good actions, convincing arguments are crucial to counter hatred, prejudices, and inequality inside the society.

But recent installments of events within sides in the Atlantic include the great reminder of the moral and societal obligation. Whatever happened to social distancing? Those who claim they can care about BAME (Black Asian and Minority Ethnic) communities affected by COVID-19 are actually out behaviour thorough irresponsibly, potentially endangering lives. What we are witnessing is just not legitimate peaceful protest, it’s verging on anarchy. Unsavoury elements are searching for to exploit legitimate hurt and direct it at others. All races, religions and cultures sometime have fallen short. No one ethnicity arrives any more racist than another however some people, including some academics are peddling a hazardous and poisonous narrative that sews division, mistrust, and fear. This lynch-mob mentality must stop. I was appalled to find out that in London statues of Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill were attached and defaced, do that they know nothing? Even the Cenotaph, that sacred monument towards the fallen was attached, an act that’s little in short supply of treason. What has been happening is actually scary and deeply disturbing.

There are dreadful things happening across the entire world, rather than only in America. We could all do with determining what is happening elsewhere, that is not within the media and educating ourselves after which trying to find a constructive service something loving toward it. We can change lives, we will make it a positive one. We need respect, understanding and love. At this time, I would ask where is the love?
