chuckystud saidNoren gets it.
Yes, all the aforementioned were druggies, and, yes, including Hitler, but, what's sickening is that we elevate these folks to superhero status when in fact they are some of the poorest moral fabric among us.
It's an extremely sad statement of the human condition, that folks would follow Hitler, or idolize Jackson, when, they were so devoid of moral character.
I think the issue is not so much that he's the among poorest of moral fabric, but that his image is torn between two facets:
-- Jackson the humanitarian, musician, performance, and recording genius
-- Jackson the proposed pedophile and debilitated druggie Jackson
He obviously wasnt devoid
of moral character. He made irresponsible choices and actions that avalanched into his breakdown
Some people are choosing to focus on the good in his life and not the bad, in light of his death. That's what people USUALLY do when someone dies. When someone you consider significant dies, do you go looking for and unearthing everything wrong about their life? No.
Personally, people need to stop talking, posting, lifting up or critizing down the man. Let the man REST in peace. Enjoy his music and his contributions. Didn't the media chop him to pieces enough when he was alive?
