Until the fundamentalists get into power. Then it will be horrible for other reasons.
Yes, at the end of the day the river of blood always leads to religion's doorstep, doesn't it. All of the slaughter going on (outside of the occasional large corporate war fought between countries over lines on a map or political ideologies) is based on people who believe their fairy tale is right and yours is wrong. So you must die. Where is there any possibility of safety
This isn't a rant against you, ROC, it's just generalized malaise rearing its ugly gourd.
The middle east, and huge chunks of Africa, are gone. They're just done, and they will not stop smoldering until all the believers
are dead. Which seems to be what they want anyway, so cool. Knock yourselves out. But don't expect me to weep over the dead, or express shock at their atrocities. I can't. I just don't care anymore. You can't force "peace" onto people, especially people with centuries of animosity behind them. No one wants to admit what the root cause of all this is, and even if they did, it would take centuries to rid the world of the ignorance and intolerance that religion fosters.
So what should I do, mope around wringing my hands and be shocked and outraged and write letters to fucking politicians? Excuse me if I laugh in the face of all the tragedy in the world, but give me a break. I can't stop the endless Itchy and Scratchy cartoon from playing out. And I really don't want to. It's not my business. I have other concerns, like, maintaining my luxurious lifestyle and making sure I have enough money for a yacht when I retire.
Of all the things that are worth fighting for in this world, religion is not even on the list. Yet here we are. And America is no different. We'll have hooded masses roaming the streets one day, waving crosses and automatic weapons. Killing in the name of GOD. All I can say to that is; hallelujah! Target practice!
Our holy war will be much better, because, as you know, every American citizen maintains a large cache of deadly weapons, and we are all anxious for a legitimate reason to use them on our friends and neighbors.
Yes, yes, yes. What kind of world? Well, enough of me. Let us now turn our attention to what is truly important and bask in the bloody glory of all the world's "good books." Amen. A salaam alaikum, bitch!
