I watch now on CNN, the explanation for keeping a plant within a temple to gain evidence for four years to have a case for prosecuting or stopping what many of us would call the abuse of children.
I digress, because it is not how I anticipated starting my post.
I am here now though, and will continue.
“Why don’t many of these women (a/k/a children) run away”?
Well Larry, they don’t know what is outside of the walls. I mean no disrespect Larry, but please, when the world was flat, it was flat, to suggest otherwise was heresy. I still get looked at kind of funny when I suggest we may not be the only living beings in the universe/galaxy/dimensions of time.
So what am I going on about?
I need/want to understand how anyone does this, dehumanizes another. Perhaps, I need to be in their shoes. I prefer to not be, to be honest, who would want to live through that distorted, yet, real experience of the world?
I can tell you, we dehumanize, daily.
We get angry at people in traffic, not knowing why thery are oblivious or rushing, instead, probably calling them names.
We get angry when someone’s card doesn’t work in line at the foodstore.
We get mad when someone dares to question a price, (yeah, right, you kidding me? many more of us know, thirty cents makes a difference these days)
I get mad seeing these idiots in Texas abusing young women, and I want to know, when did the deception of reality, faith begin?
I no longer proscribe to any given religion, because I don’t believe in the one true, right religion, I only believe in the following:
If that could be my religion, I could adhere to it, I cannot condemn, I cannot say other loving humans should not be saved, etc., etc., etc.
I know, we all contribute to what I call de-humanization.
What I want to know is, will we contribute to stopping this societal nightmare?
