Diversity and The Land Before Time…

Ducky…Petrie….Spike…Cera and of course Little Foot….Who could forget these beloved childhood characters….. The Land Before Time ( I’m not talking about ANY of the sequels here) was a great movie…..If you haven’t seen it…I suggest you do…..

The movie follows five unlikely friends as they journey to the Great Valley …where they will eventually reunite with their lost relatives and live out their lives with plentiful food and no threats from predators…… The movie’s main focus is on a young brontosaurus named Little Foot….and the friends he makes on his way to the Great Valley….Each one being quirky and very different from the others…..Somehow…their differences don’t matter and they all quickly become friends and things couldn’t be better….

All of this friend making is a sigh of defiance…. At the beginning of the movie…..Cera’s (a triceratops) dad gets upset when he catches her playing with Little Foot….He scolds her and says the five words that would make any social justice warrior scurry to a safe space….. “STAY WITH YOUR OWN KIND”…….

Funny thing is….Daddy Triceratops is the only rational character in The Land Before Time….and he’s right…..Ducky…Petrie….Spike…Cera and Little Foot  may all look different …and have completely different personalities….but they still have a common ground that makes their diversity work…..

 

THEY ARE ALL FUCKING HERBIVOUROUS…..

 

You get that…??… They ALL…each and EVERY one of them….eats plants….IF one or two of them were carnivorous .. their friendship would fail….In fact…it wouldn’t even exist because someone would get eaten before they even had the chance to “make nice”….

I’m not saying that people from different backgrounds shouldn’t comingle….I’m NOT saying that at all….The same applies to race…sexual preference…and so on and so forth….What I’m trying to say here is….certain belief systems go together like Sharp Tooths and baby chicks….It’s not a good match….. When your “friend” is supposed to eat you…(bomb you…stab you…shoot you…run you over with a truck)……and they make you believe that they won’t…..(false assimilation)…..you can’t be surprised when they snap (plot) and eat (suicide bomb) others because that’s what they’re supposed to do…..( beliefs)….If a baby Sharp Tooth grew up among the other dinosaurs in TLBT..it would only be a matter of time before someone was killed….

Unfortunately…this matter of time is happening more and more often in the real world…. When is the West going to wake up and realize that most of us are herbivores with carnivores living among us…. They have to feed and Western civilization is a hearty meal…. They can’t change who they are… If anything …they are causing some herbivores to get a taste for flesh….That’s not alright…..

So go ahead…Watch The Land Before Time…..but keep in mind that things could have been a lot different…..Had  the Great Valley been filled with underage virgins…..and a baby Sharp Tooth had infiltrated the group of friends….there would have been a far different ending…. One that mirrors Egypt…Paris…Brussels….Manchester….to name a few…..
