The lemonade theory is a theory based on the fact that lifes attempt to balance itself will always produce the opposite result to the current situation.
For instance, during the year of 2020 systemic racism became a major situation that needed to be addressed. During the course of rectification many corporate entities began to address long held stereotypes like aunt jemima syrup.
What started out as protests against judicial racism became a self reflective response by owners and businesses looking to not perpetuate the stigma of racism.
The gravity of the situation was extreme so extreme it forced everyone except those in favor of the proliferation of racism to demand or make changes.
In my opinion I do not believe these sweeping reforms would not have permeated so deep within American communities and cultures had those in power immediately accepted the lemonade coming from the lemons. Instead those in power felt as though they could stop the production of the lemonade by using militarized police, violence, tear gas and rubber bullets. This only made the lemons even more stronger and ripe in its resolve to produce justice in the form of lemonade. Law enforcement lacked the understanding that it (however unwanted it wanted to be) was apart of the process to bring forth the lemonade (justice).
Finally realizing that the longer they refused to do their part in producing the lemonade (justice) the more bitter the lemons would become. Finally recognizing that if the lemons became too bitter the whole drink (idea) would be destroyed. In so law enforcement and government accepted it part in the process. Finally adding the sweet sugar (reform) needed, the lemonade was prepared to be stirred. Within the whirling agitation of this sweet concoction all things based in racism and unfit for existence in a post racist society was swept up and analyzed. Ultimately removed to perfect the drink. No one knows what this lemonade will taste like as the lemon pulp and seeds are still being removed. As some like their lemonade bitter, others like it sweet. Currently America is hoping the balance is suitable for both sides.
The ying and the yang of life will always bring forth good things from the bad and bad things from the good. Suppressing either will only make the manifestation of either stronger. One must also understand that the manifestation of either will always derive authentically from the source. Even though people may attempt to manufacture the good from the bad or the bad from the good; this will only result in confusion and duplicity. Creating two results. Though many will be fooled eventually all will be drawn to the authentic manifestation over the synthetic one. Destroying the synthetic version and revealing the architect of lies.
