Evolution of the “Brutality and Killing Concept”.
Is there a justifiable rationale for violence? Humans have evolved enough to come up with numerous reasons. Reasons that sanction cruelty. Reasons that explain the need for brutality. Reasons why it’s “okay” to use excessive force. Reasons to KILL.
What gives this cruel concept it’s lasting power, a force and life of it’s own …
… Fear! Hatred, Prejudice, and Greed feed those who seek Power! Those who also seek monetary wealth which fosters Corruption. Our own individual weaknesses give those who would profit from same their ability to control, maneuver and use whatever and whoever is necessary to achieve their private goals.
Intensive research (statistical data of the numbers killed in our world’s history, up to present day) point to two reasons for these deaths:
Number One: Religion (wars and persecution)
Number Two: Controlling others: the need for Power
The above two reasons are facts not an opinion!
Over the years, we humans have perfected the “Brutality and Killing Concept” by accepting an animalistic belief that it is unfortunate but somehow “okay” to either take a life or at the very least misuse, abuse and ignore a life’s need to survive. A rationale that “the end does justifies the means” because of … “pick a justification”! And yes we hace accepted this as a ‘sad but true’ fact in our own lives. But is it hardwired into our physical make-up? I hope not. I hope it is something that can be reprogrammed because honestly, right now, it’s not looking so good.
Too many of us seek selfish and personal, petty self gratification at the price of others, safe in our artificial world of “okayness”. So what’s happening to others is viewed at a distance, (starving, brutality and death) is just not our problem, until the day it happens to one of us or ours, close up and personal and then it becomes our problem too. But when we (humans “en masse“) finally realize the wrongness of cruelty and brutality as an unresolved problem for everyone – will it be too late?
Killing for ANY reason is wrong. BRUTALITY for any reason is wrong. IGNORING for any reason is wrong.
Can all mankind learn the “saving lives” concept? We most urgently need an “app” for that – to be downloaded into our consciousness or more specifically … our “conscience”!
