Thin Skin

Don’t laugh, don’t joke. Don’t criticise or question. It seems these days, so many people are suffering from a lack of strength. The thin skinned, the snowflakes, whatever title they are given they seem to take offence at everything.

Those who suffer from this condition come from all areas of life. The whole political spectrum is covered; don’t criticise or joke about a sex, don’t take my gun. The religious world uses this condition as its own armour; if you criticise the actions of Israel then you must be an antisemite.

The need for protection and support has become the need for silence. Criticise at your peril, for you may need stronger protection yourself. But the world needs critics, it needs ideas, it needs intelligent thought. So don’t snuff it out, please, just think about it. A silent world would be a scary place.
