What differences does it make to those suffering who is causing them to suffer?

01 Think it over

I am repeating the words of Gandhi.

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?~ Mahatma Gandhi

 None, not a doggone bit. All they know is that they are suffering, hungry, or thirsty, and oftentimes dying because of someone else’s madness and it doesn’t matter who did it nor under what reasons.
People often justify actions by saying:
“Well, the ‘such and such’ folks hurt people ‘but’ they are still good people. (How is that?) Because they do, serve or (you fill in the blank)
But the ‘whomevers’ folks they hurt people. They are bad people because they belongs to such as group or looked such and such way.
If any group of people following something that wrought hell raising and hurting people then how can they possible have the audacity to say they’re better than  another group who is committing the same atrocities? Many blame it on their culture. Their religion. 
I am not convinced modern people still honestly believes it’s ok to carry out old customs which were harmful to other thousands of years ago and are still harmful.
It’s all about power. It does no matter who gets hurt in the process or quest for power.  People use their customs to justify it. By saying it’s my religion or my culture as if  that’s supposed to make everything alright. It doesn’t. That religion or culture is jacked up?
But there’s an old  Native American proverb which says: “You can’t justify it in the end.”

About unholypursuit

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
