“The media is putting a lot of emphasis on the few people that are destroying, while it won’t report on the silent majority of people who are constructing, building and trying to find their way.” Tariq Ramadan
Popularized by U.S. President Richard Nixon in a part of requesting support, the non-politically active humans hold the power to swing against those advocating on their particular positions. The quiet outside the featured debates are the real society working within personally moderate ideology. Any statistic worth its salt of will of power is people based on this description. You can’t have freedom as a foundation and progressivism to deepen purpose/meaning without looking through the lens of the middle ground.
Transcending all classes and cultural belief, the silent majority is the best way to rationalise politics but people against hate are not a fringe minority, and an absolute government by the people is incompatible. Quoting Alan Moore “It does not do to rely too much on silent majorities, Evey, for silence is a fragile thing, one loud noise, and its gone. But the people are so cowed and disorganised. A few might take the opportunity to protest, but it’ll just be a voice crying in the wilderness. Noise is relative to the silence preceding it. The more absolute the hush, the more shocking the thunderclap. Our masters have not heard the people’s voice for generations, Evey and it is much, much louder than they care to remember,”.
Not doubling down on the silent majority, I imagine if philosophy and conflicting discussions became taught in every school then, the unconscious balance of civil war within concepts would have a higher impact in creating more peaceful culture. The concept hustle is easy, on the other hand, embracing conversation of all sides and ones leaning towards the centre needs to be inclusively considered. Avoiding equilibriums have collateral damage in thinking this is a too much right pushing idea and/or left shifting becomes an unnecessary division.
“Revolution is a spectators sport. The majority will sit in the stands and watch the factions fight. At the end they will choose side with the team that is winning.” ― George Lincoln Rockwell
There is security in fence-sitting watching events take place beyond the comprehension of good & evil. Question what is more powerful and effective of all in correlation to the law in a constructive way, than don’t pick a party and speak up on general destructive harm of clear non-overreaction is my plea. Stand by your holy spirit and observe the action that can naturally take place when positively compelled to. Think for yourself with integrity eventually knowing that you are not the inner dialogue of these thoughts. In conclusion, not expressing opinions does not mean they do not have opinions worthy of value. The potential in the silent majority is a gamechanger yet contains the best of what is not objectively broken in life.
