I was over at LoisJay’s blog (here) and she shared this fun photo of her little “cool dude”-
It reminded some of us (her post readers) of Elon Musk (and we had fun with the Musk trail).
A quick Priorhouse shoutout to thank Elon Musk for what he is trying to do with Twitter – because in my opinion, anyone who advocates to stop censorship is one. cool. dude.
People, let’s all remember that
“we cannot silence those who we disagree with – they might just have the truth that we don’t see yet.”
Let’s remember that we could be wrong and the opinion we are so dogmatic about might just be, um, erroneous – part of human filters and natural bias.
Imagine being the one to challenge bloodletting – or to challenge those that didn’t cover wounds and thought wounds needed only air – some wounds need air- but there was a time they didn’t know to cover wounds. I could list so many examples of times the majority “got it wrong” and finally truth was seen ! but I will move on to just remind everyone that censorship and silencing is bad. It is dangerous.
“Censorship carries with it great risks. Societies that allow the voices of dissent to be silenced cannot call themselves democratic. By silencing opinions we widen the divisions that exist in our society.” ~ author unknown – (they were censored out)
Now on to some Priorhouse Street Shots.
It has been a while since I shared some photos from the streets and so today’s cool dude theme has led me to share photos with folks “a little to the right….”
