"I freed thousands of slaves. I could have freed thousands more, if they had known they were slaves". - Harriet Tubman
If some who object to the following approach attempt to label it as political and are successful in various settings, then we may need to amend its purpose to instead be with a mourning of those who have experienced things like having their hands and feet amputated for theft, being stoned to death for adultery, being treated as a non-entity due to their sex (female) and so forth. With this alternative approach, officials would definitely not have any legal basis for saying it is directed against the Supremacists of a "certain" religion for whom consistently they provide cover.
A review of the posts of 1683 AD and a multitude of websites will reveal irrefutable evidence of Islamic Supremacist involvement in the murder, maiming, raping and otherwise tormenting of thousands of people in recent decades and also untold millions in the many centuries which have passed since Islam came into existence. Many of us wish to mourn these innocent victims in a highly visible manner and ensure that others are aware of our constant state of mourning. The only way we can do this in the daily world of work, errands and social activities is through clothing and various accessories. If enough people were to mourn in this manner on a consistent basis, day after day, it will be impressed not only upon fellow citizens, but also upon the ruling elite in various institutions. With regards to mourning, the following link gives some basic insights: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mourning .
Before any employers or government officials consider banning the use of such items as an avenue for mourning, they should consider that clothing and accessories have been used in such a manner for centuries. There have even been established traditions for people to wear such clothing for life. Also, there are no laws which can inhibit someone from adopting new forms of mourning attire which are more in tune with the 21st century. They should recognize that depending on the individual, mourning may or may not draw upon one's religious beliefs. Furthermore, as long as such attire does not interfere with one's work ability (as would obstruction of one's face), or, depending on the nation involved, stray far from long-established cultural norms, there should be no logical basis for on-the-job restrictions.
Before outlining this approach, we would like to express our deep appreciation to our good Islamic Supremacist friends who have pushed for, and received from the appeasement-minded elites, the right to, how should we say, "encourage" their women to wear the type of clothing they claim is dictated in Islam. And just as they assert that their clothing (both sexes) does not serve as any sort of political uniform (which is illegal in many countries), so do we with respect to our approach.
Obviously, none of the media outlets have any concern with mourning or otherwise addressing the victims of Islamic Supremacism. As a result, many Westerners go blissfully about in their daily lives without an awareness of the victims of Islamic Supremacism for whom they, too, may wish to mourn upon becoming informed. The only way in which they have a chance of becoming informed is if the see evidence of our own mourning concerns in the course of their daily lives, generally on the streets and in the workplace. This measure can bring about this visibility. If enough Westerners were to connect with the desire to mourn which is within themselves and demonstrate it publicly, their daily presence on the street will be significant enough for the elites to take notice. If the reader is to take anything from what has been written thus far, this is it.
We believe the proper mourning outfit should contain the following. Of course, discussion with others may bring up better options. Consider this to be a starting point.
White shirt / blouse
The first article of clothing for mourning is a white shirt or blouse, to be worn on a daily basis. The history of mourning indicates that this (along with black) is a color which has figured prominently. It is recognized that most men and women wear shirts and blouses of various colors each day if they are not otherwise required to wear a uniform. However, we feel that if they truly wish to be true to their mournful spirit and make others aware of it, they will need to follow this prescription consistently. It is highly improbable that any business or government entities would attempt to ban this attire, since many people already wear it. Furthermore, men commonly wore white shirts to work almost exclusively into the early 1960's.
Trousers / Pants / Dresses
This clothing in gray or black would be preferred.
If men are required to wear at work, they have been provided various options. The most popular style in use today is the long tie. For our purposes, we will adopt the far less common bow tie ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bow_tie ), in black. Due to this tie having gone out of popularity, an increase in people wearing it will definitely make a statement regarding the degree of mourning which people are experiencing. Again, it is difficult to envision our friends in business and government banning its use. The preceding link contains some interesting commentary on how bow tie wearers are perceived.
Hats ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hat ) have generally gone out of style on a daily basis for both men and women. This gives us an opportunity to use hats as a way to distinguish ourselves in our mourning. For our purposes, we believe the flat cap ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_cap ), with black or gray coloration is most suitable for daily wear for men and possibly women. It has a particular advantage when compared to other hat wear in that it is not as bulky. We would like to urge women to consider the cloche ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloche_hat ) hat. Common in the 1920's, it has been introduced again for popular wear in recent years. It, too, has an advantage of being compact. A black or white color would be suitable.
It might be difficult to have mourners wear gloves ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glove ) in non-Winter months. It is unlikely that men would wear them in an office setting. However, women wore gloves on a daily basis in western society into the early 1960's. We would urge an eventual (not immediate) consideration of this possibility. Black would be the preferred color.
Metal shoe taps
Metal shoe taps would greatly help the mourner reflect upon his mourning status as it would enhance a meditative state whenever he walks. In fact, the sound would not be too much different from the sound which is often made by women's high heeled shoes. The taps would, quite coincidentially, also serve to distinguish the wearer wherever he goes in his daily routine. Obviously, other people will hear the sound, which is a part of our explicit intent. Tap placement would be on the heel and toe areas. A particular side benefit of taps is that it would greatly enhance the durability of the shoes, a point which can be expressed to any objecting employers. Taps can usually be obtained and applied at any shoe repair store. In these hard financial times, it would be a shame if someone was disciplined at work for simply implementing a cost saving measure.
On occasions where someone has to use an umbrella, we believe mourning would be enhanced if one a mourning symbols ( to be explained elsewhere) were imprinted on the umbrella. The user would be comforted by the symbol being held aloft. However, as of yet, none are available. In their absence, black umbrellas are preferred.
For our last mourning accessory, we would urge the use of lapel pins which depict one of the recognized mourning symbols (to be explained elsewhere). The symbols should be non-obtrusive and non-political. If, however, an employer bans them, what's to keep a website somewhere from proclaiming some sort of political meaning to all forms of jewelry and symbols. Since an employer would not ban all other forms of commonly accepted jewelry in the face of such assertions, one would expect them to draw back from any threats regarding lapel pins. A non-mourning option for people could include lapel pin versions of particular flags.
The preceding approaches are meant solely as was for people to further immerse themselves into the mourning experience. Since they involve long-established clothing styles and colors which have been accepted in the workplace, it would be difficult to rationalize any basis for them being banned. Again, we must stress that these clothing suggestions have nothing to do with politics and we again urge that anyone who informs others of this approach keep this in mind.
