Nudity and The Real American Values
A little rant By Jordan Blum
American Values Gone Awry?
American Values – For those that might not be aware I would like to take this opportunity to do a little rant. In the U.S., there are many laws that protect people and allow them to express themselves. I talked about that in depth in a previous post entitled, “Censored Nude Bodies,”so I won’t go into that again. But what pisses me off time and time again is the double standard that exists here in America with regards to values and legal issues.
I think I speak for most people when I say that the KKK is an evil organization that discriminates and thrives on hate.
I think most people would also agree that in and of itself, the naked body is natural.
If a group of KKK members want to enjoy a beer at a bar they can do so pretty much anytime they want. They can don their freshly pressed robes and paint the town red. They were even granted the right to march pretty much anywhere. They are protected under freedom of speech and freedom of expression. People might walk out in protest, they might stay and give them dirty looks and even a fight might break out. But the bar itself is allowed to serve them.
But what if a group of nudies want to do the same? Well there are a ton of states that have laws on the books that would prohibit a bar from selling alcohol to naked people. So to make things simple – the nudies would get arrested!
If this is truly the core values that we teach our children in America then is it really such a surprise that they would be quick to act out violent urges? After all, if the KKK is accepted and recognized by the government then why not – right?
Am I the only idiot here that feels as though something has gone very wrong in the progression of our core American Values today?
