Scottsdale, Arizona – November 26, 2010 –
Why the title “IT DOESN’T MATTER”? Things do matter, and the attitude that “it doesn’t matter” is destructive to society. This is true in the United States, and it is true in the world. It was destructive in the 1930’s and probably before that. It's destructive now.
The idea of a super race was promoted. The mentally ill and the retarded disappeared, but it didn’t matter. Youth groups were formed, and people were killed because they were Jews, but it didn’t matter.
Machiavelli had the idea that the end justifies the means. If you want to rob the rich, and give to the poor. That’s good. It doesn’t matter that it is illegal.
Tiananmen Square was a defiance of the government. Thousands were killed by the government. That doesn’t matter?
Presently Kim Jong Il is threatening the world. He has been backed by the Chinese so far. Both he and Iran are a nuclear threat. That doesn’t matter?
Obama said, "If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period." A comment was made; “it doesn’t matter” that this has not happened.
It did matter to my brother’s wife and to many people who lost their Medicare Healthcare Advantage Plans.
My brother’s wife was denigrated even though she had no direct involvement in the article being discussed. “It doesn’t matter” was put into writing and published.
“I'm glad she lost her Medicare Advantage because it was a wasteful and inefficient use of precious health care expenditures.” a Newsvine writer.
What happened to: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"?
