We are all a product of our up bringing …..our parents views affect us ……. schooling effects us, were we the bully or the one bullied?
300 yrs ago one nation changes the entire world, esp the south pacific. They brought what they considered "civilisation" to the indigenous peoples and we wonder why the off spring of the indigenous peoples have their views. Mean while another nation is formed from the outcasts and in short time have a war to seek independence from the mother land and would latter go on to be one of the biggest importer of slaves in the world.
In the 1914 we have start of a war and then again in 1939 ………. in both cases 1 man and his views ropes the entire world in to a blood bath, how many wars do we have at the moment because of peoples superiority views of themselves and what they believe.
People then react and they become extremists they gain a following …… "birds of a feather flock together" Cause and effect.
Don't know about you "older" guys but the young people don't get it, so quick to pick a side with out answering the fundamental question ………… "why" why are we right and the other side wrong, why are our views and beliefs better. Isn't this why every 3 years we have elections we may not agree with who gets in but we had a say ...no blood spilt.
50 innocent people died they were doing what the were doing, causing no one else any issue ……… why cant people just accept that not everyone is the same as them, why do they have to make it an issue …..that's how wars start.
weka hops of his soap box …….
