Various reasons swarm through a mind
Inspiring a foregone conclusion
Noble thoughts dress up the ideas
Declarations of righteous indignation
Imitates thoughts of others
Characters switch roles
Talking lines not theirs
Ideology transcends logic
Verifying misinformation
Everyone misunderstands

  1. The news provides examples from most countries. Thanks for commenting. I keep thinking back to 1930s Germany, how Hitler came to power legally and it all went downhill from there.


  2. Although we all have some kind of ideology, when ideology becomes a priority in one’s life, then a sense of logic, of tolerance, of co-existence goes out the window. And yes, due to the great proliferation of social media, misinformation, disinformation and lies abound. Very interesting points and a lovely poem Pat. All the best.

  3. An excellent poem, Pat and you capture our new world exactly here … it is with sadness that logic and reason have become hijacked by ideologies. Real and actual discussions have become nigh impossible as a result … to the detriment of society as a whole.
