Bleep: (n) a short high-pitched sound
Often the solution is worse than the problem.
I listen in horror as commercials on television tell me the side effects of drugs that are meant to be helpful.
I frequently find myself with my mouth agape as I try to comprehend how politicians intend to take their limited “party view” and make it expansive enough for a diverse nation.
I am baffled by a church that insists that prayer in any form is a replacement for personal touch.
And I just cannot fathom why the censors on television believe that “bleeping” profane words actually eliminates their impact.
We children of Adam and Eve certainly can be pretentious. This is probably why Adam and Eve chose the Tree of Knowledge over the Tree of Life. We would much rather present ourselves as intelligent instead of possessing a hunger for the journey.
I do not know what we should do with the slang and colloquial profanities that permeate our society. But bleeping them does not lessen their obvious content–matter of fact, it creates a game, causing those who listen to speculate.
So somewhere along the line we need to work on the human heart, which is where all speech finds its birth.
Otherwise, we’re going to need someone to constantly follow us around, bleeping as we go.
