Political ideology and the Overton Window.

Lucky Otters Haven

overtonwindow

I’ve realized over the past year that political ideology is not a straight line, but more of a circle.

If you move too far to either extreme, whether it’s the far left or the far right, you wind up in pretty much the same place:  an oppressive, centralized government, removal of individual freedoms and rights, and suppression of the free press and free speech.   Authoritarianism and totalitarianism is not limited to the far right (fascism).  It also occurs on the far left (communism, which is found in places like China and North Korea, and in the old Soviet Union).

The only difference between fascism and communism is that in fascism, the corporation, a religious organization, or a group of oligarchs become the government and set all the rules.  Dissent is not allowed.  There are signs of this happening in the United States today, and it has already happened in Russia…

I’m Talking To YOU, WordPress!!

Revenge of Eve

Does WordPress interfere with your day to day activities like it does mine? Is it the first thing you do when you open your eye’s? Do you lie in bed at night staring at the screen of your phone or laptop? If so, you just may be addicted!!!

This is honestly the most healthy addiction I’ve had to date. I read blog’s that educate, tell personal triumphs, detail journey’s and inspire me to keep trecking through life. Reading stories of success puts this little bug in my ear that maybe, just maybe, I will succeed too. Not with fame via blogging but at life in general.

Having mental illnesses can often time’s derail goals, make you lose hope and faith, struggling to see the light. Well for me the light has become my screen!! As silly as this may sound, it is true. I look forward to following day to…

My Daily Observation – WordPress Is Not Only A Blog Platform: 2/17/18

DannyA common misconception that bloggers on WordPress.com make is they misunderstand what this platform is all about.  They make the mistake of believing that all that is required is to produce an epic saga and people will flock to their page to read the wonders found within.  What they quickly realize is WordPress.com is much, much more than a one-sided relationship.

Jason at Harsh Reality taught me this lesson a few years back and taught me the “key” to comprehending WordPress.com and I’m here to pass it along to you.

WordPress.com in its basic form is a social media platform just like Facebook or Twitter or Instagram.  At its heart is the function of connecting and interacting and it is much different from WordPress.org.  WP.com requires, for those who wish to grow, interpersonal synergy and without synergy, the relationship withers and dies.

This is why I have implored my friends here are WP.com to reach out to others; find people who think the way you think, believe what you believe.  It’s the reciprocal action of friendship that drives the blood flow of this platform and unless you understand this simple concept, your page will flounder.

Once Jason explained the social media aspect of WP my page was off and running and I believe yours will also.  Take the time to connect.  Build synergy.  Build relationships.  Give more than you take.  Reblog other pages.  Help someone without being asked for help.  Read.  Like.  Comment.  Connect.  Care.

These are the keys to the WP kingdom.
