People think being quiet in tough times, and being neutral in choosing sides will save them. Ah.. I am tempted to ask them -how? The annoying thing is that they don't even accept that they are neutral, they pretend to be in both the favor. "Neutrality may be useful, but it's useful like eunuchs are useful. Once you cut off their balls they grow big and strong, but you can never be sure if they will serve the harem or the master." - quoted Vaughn Sherman.
Hypocrisy is one of the reason of being neutral -I guess. Here is the neutral symbol designed by me. People may prefer but when it comes to action they will opt them outta the options. Being neutral may portray you the image you wanna get but then there is no lie that can survive long under the veil. It has to come out in so many different versions and then you won't have any choices, not even being neutral.
How difficult is it to reveal the side or option you have chosen. Not choosing any of the both won't prove you fair enough, it will surely raise the fingers towards you. "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse, and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." -quoted Desmond Tutu.
Thinking -is what I follow in all kinda situations, and normally normal people do the same and I suggest everyone the same before they open their mouth. I just don't count neutrals in existence, for me they are objects occupying space with no expiry date. Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)
