I’m seeing red right now. And that’s because I see that word “Authority”! I HATE authority.
It’s strange. When you are younger, like in Secondary School, you kind of accept authority. Although I was known to bang a few doors on occasions when some teacher had taken me up on something.
As you get older, you learn that “authority” can be used as a badge for stupidity, and also harassment and cruelty. Also, authority can control you because they have been given the power to do so.
I think we are fast approaching living in a Big Brother state. They are watching us. In so many different ways they are monitoring us. Secretly. Covertly. And soon, EVERYONE will have a microchip inserted into them – like our dog. And it WON’T be a matter of choice. Just think how already so many things are governed by “authority.” We are not even allowed to keep our own money. And for myself, my ONE BIG FEAR is being put into a HOME! So I am keeping my head down! No one is going to get ME into a Home. If I did end up in one I would be the biggest rabble rouser there. They’d certainly know what they’d got!
Authority both frightens me, and makes me angry. It frightens me because of its power, and it angers me because of its mercilessness and stupidity.
