“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
― Charles Bukowski
People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.
― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Mankind’s cruelty towards the animals can be justified just by a few words including but not limited to National Traditions, Civilization, Society norms.. etc and sometimes it becomes very easy to justify it as it’s being done for fun sake… fun for human beings to torment the animal for their pleasure…
Like the Jallikattu the tradition of Indian State named Tamil Nadu decribed as Tamil Tradition which is a sport of cruelty towards bull for fun sake of Tamilians.
What if we just reverse the order? What if we place that Human being in place of frightened bull in bunch of surrounding people for a torment in name of sport that is used by him to do the same with a bull in surrounding of peoples…
Is this cruelty toward a living animal for the fun is the path suggested by the creator God to go to the heavens?
I personally don’t have answer for this? Do you?
Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten.
