The proclamation of “do it because it feels good” is abruptly overtaking “do the right thing” in eliminating traditions and reshaping the younger generations of society. Using three abbreviations in the title to prove the point of the current wave of ridiculousness falls under the latter category of the ideological debate facilitating cultural divisiveness.
As with ignoring fact and thus reality, the pundit progressives willfully attempting to disrupt and distract the ebb and flow of life and commerce with acts that actual hinder progress, are employing the tarnished vehicle of convolution to confuse gullible activists to support an agenda marked by control and the antithesis of guaranteed constitutional liberties and freedoms in a man-bun spun tornado of aggression and deception. Pending Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens, who was a virtual god on the football field, is the perfect metaphor to illustrate the epidemic of the caustic movement in shouting as loudly as humanly possible for the forced marriage of the Bill of Rights and the policies and practices adopted by the business community, private organizations and religious entities. The Terrell Owens off the field personal life drama netting countless reality television show contracts dancing with the stars, and bearing four children with four different women leading to financial oblivion, epitomizes the foundation of the #mefirst revolution. Making reckless personal choices, displaying a complete lack of accountability, and banishing decency and empathy to the hinterlands of a halfway around the globe demilitarized zone, is okay, because it feels right. Well, Owens is upping the ante to logarithmic levels, as Fox News reports that the record setting pass catching machine, will forgo the prestigious professional football Hall of Fame ceremonies in Canton, Ohio, and celebrate with friends and family in an undisclosed location.
On one level, this is Owens taking a direct shot at the league’s response proactive response to the audacity of players to deliberately breach the employer-employee contract in using the National Anthem as a controversial vehicle to protest social injustice. The NFL officially drafted guidelines for the 2018 season, which bans antics during the pregame ceremony, but allows individuals to opt out of standing during the presentation of the flag. On a multitude of levels, he is invading into the realm of the pathologically narcissistic and indirectly attacking the foundation of organizations setting their own rules. The stipulation has always existed that if an individual is honored with an award, they are given a ceremony which they are expected to attend. Notwithstanding the participation trophy craze of typified by kindergartners celebrating “graduation”, the first large scale group to decline award invitations was of course the indelible vapidness rampart within the entertainment industry. Now, sometimes beloved sports figures are forcefully disbanding traditions, and in doing so, rewriting the standards of society, at least for themselves. Where does it all end?
Owens can simply claim that he is black, and with this declaration he is immediately pardoned from any responsibility or protocol associated with the expectations for the majority. In this high tech age of innovation, the connotations of skin color, gender, or sexual preference, set the precedent for what are considered by some as acceptable behaviors. “Do it because it feels good.” Over the last two and half decades, businesses have been forced to relax office standards, as the pressure from liberal fringe groups have completely absolved the right of an organization to enforce a code of ethics. The first phase of this movement included chiefly superficial consequences, as the overhaul to a checklist pertaining to personal appearance and wardrobe, replaced suits ties and blouses with cargo shorts, yoga pants, tattoos and piercings. However, the consistently elevating set of demands in subsequent phases on the heels of diversity, is threatening the very sanity of a productive business model. Employers now face a harrowing reality, where extreme liberal groups are at many time successful in bringing the adherence of constitutional rights directly into a business, and there exists absolutely no recourse, once this threshold has been crossed. The complete annihilation of “do the right thing” by millennials and prompted by celebrities and sports figures, only exacerbates the possibility of an uncertain future marred by laziness and instant gratification. The mainstream media only contributes to the toxicity of unchecked personal freedoms, by giving protesters an uncensored voice.
The sporting world has always been eerily indicative as to a forthcoming paradigm shift in popular culture and eventually trickling down to the nuts and bolts of society. With Owens given a pass on attending the pageantry of men who have earned their fame on the gridiron and the audacity of such icon athletes such as Lebron James and Stephan Curry in openly admonishing and refusing any possible invitation to the White House, how close is society to dealing with an unproductive worker giving the latitude to earn a raise or promotion, simply because they are adhering to the notion of, “because it makes me feel good? Thankfully, the wisdom of the glacial justice system may be just deliberate enough to embrace reason over madness in doing the right thing.
A vastly innovation and shimmering time machine comprised of plasma and nano-technology trims the next two decades into efficient molecule thin days, as the Sunday vibrant stadium of professional football intensity and entertainment is eerily empty and silent. In fact, the self-driving vehicle dominated traffic seems rather light on the eight lane major interstate adjacent to the rundown complex, like a tattered and downtrodden snake languishing in the sprawl of concrete and rust. Society is painfully and slowly dying off into obscurity, but at least people have perfected doing how they feel to a mad science.
