Not believing what "everybody" thinks is true is a crime in this part of the world, worse than homicide.
You're literally pushing the whole society into earthquakes, storms, and misery! Having had enough of my wife's rebuking me for not going with the stream, I once angrily told her that if I did, I would have killed her back then. These words are terrible to tell a genocide survivor, especially when this survivor is your life partner who lost her father in the genocide.
I was still a teenager in 1994. For those not familiar with Rwanda, that when the genocide took place. If I survived both the killers, it is mainly because I didn't follow the crowd. But I'm still victim of my "being always different". Most of my peers and classmates were involved, either as killers or on-lookers.
I resisted hate media and religion-backed propaganda, most probably because I had learnt from the Red Cross that Humanity is the greatest value. My wife to-be narrowly escaped, but her father (my in-law) didn't. I had to hide myself, being accused of cowardness and betrayal. Today, most of these guys have either confessed their "weakness" than time or have been released from prison thru corruption. Whatever the case, the very guys who were terrorizing me into genocide are now preaching me good governance, values, and the gospel.
I face only three choices: living with it (I won't!), lobbying for change (risking my head!), or leaving it (too difficult indeed!) Why hell do mature, educated, and religious people fail to see the obvious? Dogmatic fellowship will only lead the world into other wars, massacres, and misery.
Freedom of religion and freethought must be legalized in developing countries, along democratic and development policies. This requires coordinated action, and a few sacrifices. How else can we address these dogmas if we can't even reveal our faces on this platform? [Ooops! Sorry for this question. Just ignore it.]
Talks will merely make us succeed in keeping us busy talking, while those corrupt fellows are busy stealing and fucking in God's name! Wrong?
