Evolution is Too Fucking Slow!

Sadly eloquent…

One Thousand Reasons

Their willful refusal to employ the power the United States clearly has to enforce an immediate cease-fire in Lebanon provides yet another overt example of Neocon moral bankruptcy. The United States has deliberately stymied UN intervention efforts to give Israel time to finish destroying Lebanon with funding and equipment we furnished. Israel has displaced a million people, killed over 600 innocent civilians, and destroyed over $2 billion worth of infrastructure through its invasion of a sovereign nation. This in retaliation for the capture of two of its soldiers by Hezbollah, a powerful group of militants over which Lebanon has virtually no control. In contrast, Israel has suffered the loss of 26 of its civilians. While tragic, these losses pale in comparison to the devastating horror the Israeli war machine has inflicted upon Lebanon

    “Religious indoctrination is dangerously insidious because it engenders a schizoid manner of thought.”

    Is this what lies behind the moral bankruptcy of the neocons, I wonder?
    That their sense of right and wrong has become ideologised, and disconnected from any sense of what happens to real people?

    The alternative seems almost too horrible to contemplate. But perhaps *that* is the problem. That ordinary people cannot contemplate that level of wickedness, and cling to the hope that there is some moral purpose to the US government.

    Or are we going to witness the total “moral implosion” of an entire society?

    Spot on, Noggin!
    I think religious indoctrination has a lot to do with what is wrong in the world, generally.
    For one thing, most religions teach the doctrine of dualism: that each ‘person’ is, or has, an ‘immortal soul’ — which is more ‘real’ or more important than the physical body.
    The morals and ethics of religion are neither moral nor ethical, because they are based upon superstition, not reason.
    True morality acknowledges the precious, evanescent fragility of life.

    No religious reason can be sited as root cause for the actions of capitalists.

  4. taliesin says:

    Religion may not be the immediate reason, however the mode of dualistic thought engendered by most forms of religion is inarguably the root of all conflict.

    The phrase, ‘religious reason’, is an oxymoron.
