I'm sick of individuals here in ATS claiming religion is the root of all evil, so I will leave you with the title and the article to ponder with.
I fully agree with the article, that there is the right hand, and then there is the wrong hand. Any thought, any idea, any system can be catastrophic
at the wrong hands, so stop blaming ideas, rather blame the people who misuse those ideas:
Remember that Germany, at the time the most scientifically rational nation, used its proud techno-superiority to bring us two world wars and the
Holocaust. In addition, two non-religious "scientifically based" communist societies, the Soviet Union and China, created a body count 10 times that
of the Holocaust on their own people. Then, of course, who can forget the saintly quest to scientifically purify the races with eugenics?
Read the whole article and ponder.
What do you guys think?
Do you guys believe ideas/thoughts/systems are the root of all evil, or is evil the root of all evil?
