Ever since I started blogging, even before that, I knew that there were going to be people who didn’t agree with my views or I didn’t agree with theirs.
When I have come across blogs that I do not agree with I just don’t follow that blog. They aren’t wrong, it’s just that I have a different opinion.
One thing that should be understood in the world of public speaking and freedom, no one should be physically threatened when they read or respond to a post or a comment you have written. It is okay to not follow me. It is okay to never want to read my words again. It is even okay to block me if you can. But threats and violence?
COVID-19 has given a lot of people an eye-opening to peoples’ views on government and politics, based on the restrictions that have been imposed, at differing levels all over the world. What I would expect however would be that people learn that life is too valuable to purposely hurt others for the sake of anger or spite.
When I first told my sister I wanted to blog, she said “watch out, people can get really nasty!” Nasty to me is words. Threats to me are physical and scary.
