A DIFFERENT APPROACH

—Original Message—

Subject: FROM SCOTT MAYO, RE TWO ONLINE PETITIONS I HAVE STARTED

I appreciate your time and consideration, in reading this email.

For a long time now, I’ve been very concerned about the direction our country, the United States, is taking.

Since 2012, I’ve been especially concerned about the destructive impact that unrestrained Digital-Age technology—particularly cellular technology (cellphones and smartphones) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, et al)—is having on our country.

And since June 22, 2015, I’ve been especially concerned about an ongoing trend of state and local politicians censoring their constituents’ historical flags, and destroying their constituents’ historical monuments—without their constituents’ consent.  This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and I have been doing all I can to bring awareness to it, and to elicit the help of my fellow Southern Americans, my fellow Americans, and my fellow human beings worldwide, in stopping this destructive trend.

I have started two petitions on the website, Change.org, on which I would appreciate your adding your signature to mine.

The first is to President Trump, requesting that he remove Nikki Haley from his presidential cabinet—because Nikki Haley is the initial perpetrator of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, and because Nikki Haley is being rewarded for her exploitation of a mass murder.

The second is to Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays—the historical flags displays of the five nations under which Pensacola, Florida, has lived and thrived.  These local politicians have censored the First Confederate Flag from our historical flags displays since June 24, 2015—without our consent.  They have not even let us vote on this.

Our country, the United States of America, is in serious danger of self-destruction.  The sociopolitical chaos our country is experiencing in this Digital Age is unprecedented in its history.  And this sociopolitical chaos—driven by unrestrained Digital-Age technology—is spreading all over our world.

Most of us seem to be pretending that everything is fine—as if our country’s problems will simply go away if we ignore them.  But this is never the case—no country’s problems simply go away, as if by magic.

Many of us are quite aware of the danger posed to our country, but feel so powerless to do anything about it that we just give up—we just do nothing, and look forward to our deaths, or to a Biblical event that will require no action on our part.

Of course, neither of these approaches is ever effective.

We can turn our country—and our world—around.  But we can only do this together—and with small, incremental actions.

And signing online petitions is a way of taking small, incremental actions together.

Please click on the links below, and—unless either of these petitions is against everything you believe in—add your signature to these online petitions.  Your signature will be greatly appreciated—perhaps more than you know.

A CIVICS LESSON

Look at this flag.

This is a historical flag that represents the Confederate States of America—a historical nation in the history of the United States of America.

This flag is in a public space.

That means this flag belongs to the public.

The public is the people.

You are the people—and public officials, elected or appointed, have no right to censor this flag without your consent.

To do so is to violate your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

This flag belongs to you—no public official has the right to censor it without your consent.

It doesn’t matter how you feel about the historical Confederate States of America.

It only matters that this flag belongs to you—the people.

And no public official, elected or appointed, has any right to censor it without your consent.

What happens when public officials censor the public’s historical flags and monuments without the public’s consent—directly or indirectly?

What happens when public officials censor the people’s historical flags and monuments without the people’s consent—directly or indirectly?

This is what happens:

“I know you’re a strong supporter of the Second Amendment–is there anything about this situation that makes you think, ‘Okay, should we rethink–is it time for some kind of change?'”
“ANY TIME THERE IS A TRAUMATIC SITUATION, PEOPLE WANT SOMETHING TO BLAME–THEY ALWAYS WANT SOMETHING TO GO AFTER…”

“THE HATE-FILLED MURDERER WHO MASSACRED OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHARLESTON [SOUTH CAROLINA] HAS A SICK AND TWISTED VIEW OF [THE CONFEDERATE FLAG THAT FLIES ON THE STATEHOUSE GROUNDS IN COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA]”
“TODAY WE ARE HERE…TO SAY IT’S TIME TO MOVE THE FLAG…”

“I UNDERSTAND THE [FIRST CONFEDERATE] FLAGS ARE DOWN, BUT I WANT TO MAKE IT PERMANENT. I DON’T WANT ANY CHANCE OF THOSE FLAGS GOING BACK UP.”

Where are those flags and monuments?

Those were historical flags and monuments that represented the Confederate States of America—a historical nation in the history of the United States of America.

Those flags and monuments were in public spaces.

That meant those flags and monuments belonged to the public.

The public was the people.

You were the people—and public officials, elected or appointed, had no right to censor those flags or monuments without your consent.

To do so was to violate your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Those flags and monuments belonged to you—no public official had the right to censor them without your consent.

It didn’t matter how you felt about the historical Confederate States of America.

It only mattered that those flags and monuments belonged to you—the people.

And no public official, elected or appointed, had any right to censor them without your consent.

Be the change you wish to see in the world by limiting the Digital-Age technology in your life.

A smartphone can easily make you stupid, and social media can easily make you antisocial.

You’re better off without a smartphone, and you’re better off without any social-media accounts.

As long as I can have only a landline phone, a desktop computer, and a blog, so can you.

Even if you get rid of your smartphone, and get a basic cellphone with no Internet capabilities (a.k.a. a flip phone), you’ll be a lot better off.

And even if you close your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and/or other social-media accounts, and start a blog, you’ll be a lot better off.

If you limit the Digital-Age technology in your life, you can make a positive difference in your life—and in your country, and in your world.

Gandhi didn’t exactly say, “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” but it’s still very good advice.

Be the change you wish to see in the world by limiting the Digital-Age technology in your life.

This is Hell.

Hell is not hot, but cold.

And Hell is not a place, but a time.

Hell is a time when the air is cold, the water is cold, the ground is cold—and the people are cold.

This is Hell.

The only legitimate physicians’ assistants are nurses.

Young, pretty faces with less medical training than nurses have absolutely no business diagnosing illnesses or prescribing medications.

And young, pretty faces with less medical training than nurses should never be given authority over nurses.
