The Antecedents Of Current Society

Woman's Face Embedded In Stone

What can only be described as a primogenial affair with ideology that is detrimental to the core existence of normal life; as in history is indeed little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind.

I am reminded of the lyrics of a song from long ago “There might have been things I missed; it don’t mean I’m blind; whatever was done is done,” meaning it’s in the past. So far past that none of us were even alive yet!

In yet another, recent uprising of a mob of self entitled, loathing brats that have yet to learn the lesson of life or anything about history; are just knowledgeable enough to sign a high dollar contract; putting themselves into decades of debt and have been taught everything they know by a TV and/or what is said on social media as being the gospel of fact.

We present to you the latest mob of enthusiastic brain dead children that one day will surely be politicians as that is about as far as their thinking capabilities will extend to them a paycheck.

Have we kept count of the ludicrous absurdities from the recent past? I’m sure there is quit the list that would keep any/everyone scratching their head for a very long time.

A video, released in May, Jason Aldean – who has been awarded country music artist of the decade by the Academy of Country Music – performs in front of the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, Tennessee. This is the site of the 1946 Columbia race riot and the 1927 mob lynching of an 18-year-old Black teenager named Henry Choate.

What – as to be expected from the brain dead – is not being said is the “idea/concept” and what is being conveyed in the music video, further highlighting yet another example of the absurdities of a population that seems to have a propensity to wet themselves every time they see something that another brain dead person has post of social media.

So let’s take a look at some of the non-brain-dead facts surrounding this music video.

First and most important, is the fact that many music videos, movies and TV shows have been filmed at the same location that this video was filmed at (Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, Tennessee, US)

Second. While after watching the video, I feel the production company did a rather poor job of putting it all together. I feel it could have been done with more elegance, but that is just my personal opinion.

Third. It is not hard at all for anyone with two walnuts for brain cells to determine that the video is about small town life, it is about helping neighbors. It is not about race, skin color or religion, and is quoted by Jason:

“No one, including me, wants to continue to see senseless headlines or families ripped apart. “Try That In A Small Town,” for me, refers to the feeling of a community that I had growing up, where we took care of our neighbors, regardless of differences or background or belief. Because they were our neighbors, and that was above any differences.”

“My political views have never been something I’ve hidden from, and I know that a lot of us in this country don’t agree on how to get back to a sense of normalcy where we have at least a day without a headline that keeps us up at night. But the desire for it to, that’s what this song is about.”

“To me, this song summarizes the way a lot of people feel about the world right now. It seems like there are bad things happening on a daily basis, and that feels unfamiliar to a lot of us. This song sheds some light on that.”

I included a link to the video so you can watch and determine for yourself.
