Viewpoint: Friday, Thirteen November 2015

A Civil War founded upon religious beliefs and how people should live has spread itself to the European Continent. What happened in Paris, France, was a battle, and an act of war carried out by the Islamic State. That we refused to take the declaration of war seriously in 2014 has resulted in the mass, willful, killing of innocent people, which took place on Friday, the thirteenth of November.
Religion, which oppresses, is like a dictatorship suppressing the inalienable rights of each individual who lives under its umbrella.  Unfortunately, these inalienable rights, known as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are also echoed by these totalitarian societies, but they are interpreted differently, and the cultural upbringing displays a life we people in the West are not accustomed to––freedom and individual development find itself caught on the blind side of life. 
Hopefully, revelation has broken through the thick skull of false reality we have let descend upon us, and our eyes have been opened to see that not everyone think as we think, act as we act, and desire to live as we live. If this were true, the Islamic State would not exist.  
            Unfortunately, this clarity is too late for those people who lost their lives in Paris, France on that dreadful evening.
Viva la France!

  1. The world has a huge problem of conflicting ideologies on its hands. Analytical thinking and education is needed to resolve the issue, but instead a lot is being swept under the rug. So far we are solving few problems and merely postponing the issues while they seethe in closed up pots that are going to eventually explode in a bigger way than we've ever seen.

    Paris is a tragedy that may be repeated in the months to come unless our governments start waking up to face reality.

    1. Hi Arlee,
      Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and let me apologize for being so late responding. I participated in NaNoWriMo, and it practically sucked up my time.

      There are indeed conflicting ideologies coming from different parts of the world.
      I believe the conflicts stem from man's inability to live in the acceptance that not everyone will think the same. Added to this is our inability to be truthful with ourselves, and, therefore, truthful with others. Selfishness is entrenched within our souls and the me-first now outweighs man's ability to get along peacefully.
