Mashtastic

19 Sep

Every once in a while, The Daily Mash gets it so spectacularly spot-on that they deserve an entire blog post devoted to their awesomeness.

Here, I give you their comment on the travellers’ site being evicted today… http://t.co/Vo44cKij

    I think a lot of people in this world, tend to live more and more according to a one-way-model, fearing the others who may lead their lives in a different, yes maybe “magical” way. Everything that differs from the way one conceives its life, is dangerous, since it doesn’t justify it’s lifestyle, but may proove that person wrong. So let us all just be the SAME!!
    BTW like your blog!!

      Hi, thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts 🙂

      The point that I drew from the article was that it’s not being different that sensible people take issue with, but picking and choosing at how much or little of society you fancy being a part of. Some travellers seem perfectly happy to make use of the amenities that are paid for by taxes, but do not wish to contribute towards the taxes themselves or follow the rules that are in place to try and ensure fair distribution of those amenities.

      While it’s not something I’d personally ever want to do, I utterly respect a person’s right to live “off the grid”. I just don’t believe that we should be able to join in when it suits us and opt out when it doesn’t.
