It seems to me that we are quick to judge our neighbours or the strangers we hear about; why is it that we allow our moral code of behaviours to disappear when it is someone rich or famous who is acting out? What is it about our mindset that we divide these behaviours in our minds; the normal people and the 'others'.
Folks bad behaviour is bad behaviour regardless of whether you are the guy next door or a celebrity. Isn't it about time that we hold everyone accountable regardless of fame/money or class?
It always amazes me when I read about this actor or that who are once again in a relationship or marriage with some young thing 20 plus years younger and that is being generous normally now days it seems to be 30 to 40 years younger; now if that was 'Mr Jones' who lived down the road then everyone would be in judgement and calling him a dirty old man, but if it is a celebrity it is shrugged of as normal behaviour.
Just because someone has a higher profile or access to more wealth or power does not separate them from having to live with a moral code and ethics. But it happens every day and is reported with lightness on entertainment shows or magazines. It is a fine line in my mind around allowing others the right to live their life without being judgemental because of jealousy etc. but I do believe we need everyone to be accountable regardless of there position. If it is wrong for us surely it should be wrong for anyone else?
By being silent are we just not supporting bad behaviour? What can we do? If we cannot express our feelings about the behaviours of celeb's and politician's ect. then we need to be proactive, stop buying the magazines or watching the shows they are in or vote them out, stop being passive.
That ends my rant for the day...Just a thought
