When we don’t know what we want.
Listened while writing this post, try while reading it :o)
This post is the eleventh in a series which looks at the evolution of what is left of what we call democracy in my nation. These posts are best read in the order they were published. Starting at the 6th post in the series, for example, will mean that nothing makes sense to you, dear reader. Happy reading!
All this is a bit deep! It’s obvious to me that morality goes hand in hand with responsibility and accountability. Of course religion has, for a long time, played the role of moral guardian by instilling in us the concept of choice and consequence. This indoctrination of what is right and what is wrong will remind those who were brought up in a religious environment of certain fundamental principles. I am far from an expert on theology but I would go so far as to say that, to my knowledge, most religions have one thing in common- that even if we do not suffer the consequences of our actions in this life, we shall do so in the next.
It is at this point that we can begin to make out a faint path leading towards our destination. Religion has never been vague on what it set out as being good or bad – the institutionalisation of religion by man however – now that’s a different story. We talk about how humans are weak, but this willing acceptance of guilt is in fact nothing more than a shoddy by-product of the fact that we are selfish. Each of us has the ability to obtain redemption, yet it is weakness of spirit, caused by our own design flaws, which serve to construct our defense plea.
