Prejudice, Stigma and Discrimination

Blog History Law Living Politics

Why is it that society lives in it’s own sickly cesspool of ignorance and fear, rigidly mixed with a foul-tasting cocktail of stigma, prejudice and discrimination?

Why the fuck is this happening?

Is this the age of enlightenment, built on the access of unlimited technology, cemented with lessons learned from millennium of civilisation?

Yet we still see families torn apart by their own gender prejudice, governments on a crackdown of marginalised community based on stigma, and, discrimination running amok in corporations and civil society.

And we still got the fucking nerve to call ourselves a “civilised society”. What a load of bullshit.
