In all of us there is a built-in desire for admiration
of the higher being. In most of the Western world
this was translated in a direct way: admiration of God.
 
But there were other civilizations along the way.
 
Hence:
Admiration of Stalin.
Admiration of Hitler.
Admiration of Mao.
Admiration of Pot Pol.
 
All of them were great leaders.
 
There also is a price to pay of confusing the admiration
for the higher being with the admiration of a strong manipulator.
We know now what it is.
 
If there is no religious education, human mind desparately
searches for substitutes.
But not mention how many people commit atrocities by invoking the name of God and in the name of religion. Look around and see how this is happening on both sides of the isle currently. One is cllaed a liberator and the other a terrorist. But, thousands of people are dying because of actions by both sides thinking they are on the right side of Ol' Mighty.
