A DIFFERENT APPROACH

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.

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PENSACOLA’S FIVE-FLAGS DISPLAYS

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 1

REPLY TO TWITTER POST . . .

Mr. Joshua Lars Weill (“Ragnarok T. Smiff”):

“Good to see he dressed up for the occasion.  I’m surprised he wore shoes.”

Tweets like this are one reason I don’t get a Twitter account.

Judging from this and other tweets of yours, you seem to enjoy trashing any whites with whom you disagree—indicating that any whites with whom you disagree are trash, to you.

That’s pathetic.

You seem to be like most Americans—on the left and the right—who never use the greatest research tool ever developed for research, only for cheap entertainment.

You are welcome to consider signing my two online petitions, links to which are provided below—and to visit my blog, Solosocial, a link to which is provided below.

It might be good for you to actually learn something on the Internet, for a change.

Yours sincerely,

Ms. Hollander,

Who the hell do you think you are?

You are just another White kid from a privileged background, who has never truly suffered a day in her life.

Yet you just know that Bill Cosby is guilty, don’t you?

And you just know that all men take advantage of all women, every day, don’t you?

And you just know that no women take advantage of any men, any day, don’t you?

You Generation-Y and Generation-Z brats are ruining our world.

You don’t know how to do math on paper, you don’t know how to spell, and you don’t know how to use correct grammar.

You also never question anything the press tells you—or anything that liberal politicians tell you.

In fact, you never question anything at all.

You have no manners—and you have no respect for anyone or anything.

You are totally self-absorbed—and all you ever do is keep your heads up your apps, oblivious to everyone and everything around you.

Ms. Hollander, there is simply nothing good about you Generation-Y and Generation-Z bastards at all.

You are the most worthless human beings in human history, and I just wish to God we could expel you all from our planet—or at least disable all of the goddamned cell towers in the world, so we could at least wake you bastards up.

God damn you all to hell.

WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU KIDS BELIEVE IN?

You have no respect for this flag, because you have no respect for law enforcement officers—dead or alive, Black or White.

 

You have no respect for these flags—in fact, you demand that politicians censor these flags—though you have no understanding of these flags at all.

 

You don’t know what this flag is—though you claim that Black lives matter to you.

 

You don’t know what this flag is either—or care to know what it is.

 

You don’t realize that if the Republican President of the United States orders an invasion of the State of California—just as the Republican President of the United States ordered an invasion of Southern states in 1861—this flag will be censored immediately, and anyone who tries to display it again will be killed.

 

You definitely approve of local politicians replacing the First Confederate Flag with this flag, in our historical flags displays—though it has been done without our consent, and is historically inaccurate.

 

You have no idea that the same politicians who censor all of the Confederate flags you dislike so much will eventually censor this flag you like so much.

 

What exactly do you kids believe in?

TO LIMIT THE DIGITAL-AGE TECHNOLOGY IN OUR LIVES

The abolitionist movement

The women’s suffrage movement

The labor union movement

The conservation movement

The temperance movement

The civil rights movement

The American Indian movement

The feminist movement

The anti-nuclear movement

The environmental movement

#TakeDownTheFlag #TakeEmDownNOLA #BlackLivesMatter #MeToo #NeverAgain

Notice a difference?

The sociopolitical movements before this mindless Digital Age were truly movements.  Everyone had an opinion on them—and the opinions were as diverse as the individuals in the general population.

These social-media outbursts are not movements at all.

They are trendy slogans that are as mindless and meaningless as “Jesus Saves,” and “God Bless America.”

But because they are sold as meaningful movements to largely Generation-Y and Generation-Z smartphone addicts with no understanding of history, civics, or personal responsibility, they are especially subversive and dangerous outbursts—and therefore destructive.

And the only way we can prevent the destruction of our world is to rid ourselves of our cellphones and smartphones, and close our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The only way we can prevent the destruction of our world is to limit the Digital-Age technology in our lives.

RESPECT AND APPRECIATE, GENERATION Y

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

During the Great Depression, Marian Anderson was prohibited from singing at Constitution Hall, in Washington, D.C., by the Daughters of the American Revolution—because she was colored.  First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt resigned from the DAR—then arranged for Marian Anderson to sing in front of the Lincoln Memorial, instead.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

In 1940, Hattie McDaniel was a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee for her role as “Mammy” in the 1939 production of “Gone with the Wind”.

Colored people were prohibited from entering the Los Angeles hotel where the awards ceremony was held, but the hotel made an exception for Hattie McDaniel.  It allowed her to attend the ceremony—though she had to sit at a table across the room from the tables where the whites sat.  Hattie McDaniel graciously accepted the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award however, stating that she hoped to be a credit to her race.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

The majority of abolitionists in the 19th century were whites who simply didn’t want blacks around—enslaved or free.

In all Northern states, blacks were segregated from whites—and some, like Indiana, kept blacks out entirely.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo, who was raised in Ohio, encountered some uppity Southern women once—the kind of Southern women who gave all Southern women a bad name.  

They asked her a question about a train’s schedule, and she replied, “That colored lady said…”

“We don’t call a colored woman a ‘lady,'” they interrupted.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo also told me of a restaurant in New York that didn’t take kindly to recent desegregation laws.

The waitress served the black man and his wife—but in the rudest, noisiest manner.

She slammed their plates onto the table, and abruptly walked away.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My German friend, Mr. Vogel, wanted to register to vote in Alabama, after moving there from Wisconsin.

He was told he’d have to pay a poll tax to register to vote.

“Why?” he asked.

“To keep the niggers down,” was the reply.

Mr. Vogel refused to pay a poll tax for a reason like that—he waited until poll taxes were prohibited, before he registered to vote in Alabama.

 

You can put those BLACK LIVES MATTER signs down, Generation Y.  And you can show some appreciation for the fact that you’ve never truly suffered a day in your privileged lives.  And you can show some respect for your ancestors—and your elders—who have.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo’s Aunt Pearl told of her mother—an orphan in Ohio.

At one point, Aunt Pearl’s mother, Lizzie, was staying with a woman who had three sons.  This woman’s three sons bullied Lizzie, a great deal—verbally and emotionally.

But whenever Lizzie reported this abuse to their mother, their mother accused Lizzie of lying—and sided with her sons, without ever even questioning them.

Eventually, Lizzie was adopted by a more understanding and loving foster mother.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo was actually born in Nashville.

But her father died, not long after she was born.  

Her sixteen-year-old mother, Nonnie, had to take her newborn daughter all the way back home to Akron, Ohio—because she didn’t have the means to raise her by herself.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

Nonnie and Pearl had a sister named Polly.

I have a photograph of my Great-Great Aunt Polly that was taken shortly before she died—she was a beautiful young woman.

Polly died in childbirth—at age eighteen.

Needless to say, her husband was heartbroken.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo was “pro-choice”, and I didn’t agree with her on that point.

But her opinion was completely understandable.

Louise—a beautiful cousin of her husband’s—got pregnant, out of wedlock.

In those days, an unwed woman who got pregnant was often treated like trash—while the man who impregnated her was often treated with impunity.

As was so often the case, in those days, the father of Louise’s unborn child disappeared—and Louise was faced with the stigma every abandoned, unwed mother faced.

Louise panicked, and attempted to abort the child.

She and her unborn child died in the attempt.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

During the War between the Confederate States and the United States—and especially during the “Reconstruction”, a brutal occupation in which the people of the vanquished Confederate States were denied their constitutional rights for twelve years—Southern women, black and white, were brutally raped by Union troops and Union League terrorists, on a constant basis.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

On March 25, 1911, 145 young women—mostly teenaged immigrants who didn’t speak English—burned to death at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company factory in New York City.

Women died in Northern factories often—this was just one of the worst of such tragedies.

In fact, the majority of factory workers in Northern U.S. cities were orphans and unwed women, in those days.

And the factory owners and managers—most of them Jewish men—couldn’t care less.

 

You can put those ME TOO signs down, Generation Y.  And you can show some appreciation for the fact that you’ve never truly suffered a day in your privileged lives.  And you can show some respect for your ancestors—and your elders—who have.

THEY ARE DESTROYING THEMSELVES WITH THEIR SMARTPHONES

There is a limit to human good, but there is no limit to human evil.

And I have never witnessed so much evil in my fellow human beings as in this Digital Age.

Most of this evil is manifested in their indifference.

Their smartphones are indifferent—and as they become more addicted to their smartphones, they become more indifferent.

I made the decision, years ago, not to get a cellphone or smartphone.

And I made the decision, years ago, not to get a Facebook or Twitter account.

I made the decision, years ago, to limit the Digital-Age technology in my life.

But my fellow human beings never made that decision—not most of them anyway.

And whenever I appeal to my fellow human beings to limit the Digital-Age technology in their lives, their indifference turns to denial, at best, and wrath, at worst.

Politicians, like Nikki Haley and Mitch Landrieu, have always been evil.

Yet politicians are running amok in this Digital-Age because my fellow human beings are indifferent to their evil—and to their evil deeds.

Only in this Digital Age do my fellow human beings allow politicians to censor their historical flags and monuments without their consent.

Because only in this Digital Age are my fellow human beings so indifferent to the evil of politicians—and to the evil deeds of politicians.

Their smartphones make them oblivious to everything and everyone around them.

And as their governments and corporations keep pushing their little, electronic drugs on them—by pushing more and more apps on them—they become more oblivious, and thereby indifferent.

As long as I can have a landline phone, I know that my fellow human beings can have landline phones too—at least in my country.

And as long as I can have a blog, I know that my fellow human beings can have blogs too.

I limit the Digital-Age technology in my life to a desktop personal computer and a blog.

And this is how I am so aware of the evil indifference in my fellow human beings who do not.

This is how I am so aware of how evil my fellow human beings are becoming, as they become more and more addicted to those smartphones.

This is how I am so aware of how evil my fellow human beings are becoming, as they become more and more addicted to Facebook and Twitter.

Their evil is manifested in their ignorance, apathy, and complacency.

Yet most of their evil is manifested in their indifference.

There is a limit to human good, but there is no limit to human evil.

And I have never witnessed so much evil in my fellow human beings as in this Digital Age.

Most of this evil is manifested in their indifference.

Their smartphones are mindless, godless, and inhuman.

And as they become more addicted to their smartphones, they become more mindless, godless, and inhuman—just like their smartphones.

I softly laugh, as I consider ending this rambling post with, “Fools! I’ll destroy them all!”

Yet I stop laughing when I realize that they are destroying themselves, by refusing to limit the Digital-Age technology in their lives.

And more than anything else, they are destroying themselves with their smartphones.
