1. Let others do whatever they want to. If it doesn’t concern you, it’s not your problem.

2. Unless someone else’s actions are directly hurting your life, liberty, dignity or basic rights, your opinion on it doesn’t matter.

Just kidding! 🙂

(Not really.)

Does anyone else notice how the smallest of things become a huge fucking shitstorm? The social media world is based on the chaos theory. A butterfly flaps its wings now and a hurricane forms in the future. One person posts something on YouTube and the next thing you know, there’s national unrest, parliamentary debates and the person who posted is suddenly anti-national. (Yep, y’all know what I’m talking about.) And through this all, I’m thinking, “Why do you care so much?”

Socialization (n.): collectively hating the minority outgroup

Follow the herd. If you’re not the same white goat with the tiny black spots, bleating in the same old Hakuna Matata tune, the rest of the herd will lock and load and push you off the cliff. If the goat likes Circle Of Life more than Hakuna Matata, let it fucking sing. It won’t hurt you.

That loose (albeit hilarious to imagine) analogy has made me figure out the two golden rules for world peace. Yep, there are only two.

1. Let others do whatever they want to. If it doesn’t concern you, it’s not your problem.

2. Unless someone else’s actions are directly hurting your life, liberty, dignity or basic rights, your opinion on it doesn’t matter.

Let’s take an example. The boy across the street is gay and has a mutually respectful relationship and consensual sexual intercourse in his own house? Not your problem. The girl in the high school two blocks away wears short clothes showing off skin that she’s completely comfortable with and not taking your money to buy said clothes? Back off. You don’t have the right to judge anyone’s choices. And you sure as fuck don’t have the right to degrade or beat or outlaw someone.

If you find yourself hating someone or something, try to learn more about it. Ask the experts. Unless it’s hurting you directly, don’t denigrate it or them. Terrorism? Fine to condemn. Catalonia wanting to secede? Mm, maybe not. Let people live the way they wish to. As I said, take a tip from our ancestors and become a hunter and gatherer, except this time let’s collect information instead of berries.

See? It’s not that tough. We just need to learn our boundaries, not let our nose step across it and tada! We’re golden. Age of peace.

This is why I should be queen.
