Yesterday was the international child day.
I was searching for some beautiful pictures of children around the world.
i was looking through pinterest and soon found my self getting terrible pictures of kids around the world having a disastrous life in wars, africa, rape, child labor… what the f*** these angles did so they go through this hell?
Scrolling pinterest made me realize the world had never been a better place..it was horrific all through history. children and women were the biggest victims of this era.
Through history the main center of this destiny is directly and indirectly religion! leaders gave themselves supernatural powers and ruled the people. Not only Napoleon, Hannibal and Alexander macedon, even today.
” Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.” As said by Karl Marx the founder of communism.
(from wikipedia) Marx believed that religion had certain practical functions in society that were similar to the function of opium in a sick or injured person: it reduced people’s immediate suffering and provided them with pleasant illusions, but it also reduced their energy and their willingness to confront the oppressive, heartless, and soulless reality that capitalism had forced them into
But in the end of my evening i found great pictures of happy kids, happy not rich happy but absolutely, unconditionally happy kids in spite of many horrible circumstances..
Heal the world, make it a better place!
