"Us and Them"

Let's face it, the world as it is today is fucked up. East versus West, Arabs versus Jews, Muslims versus Christians and Sunnis versus Shiaas are just a few examples of what I call "us and them" situations. There are many factors that can lead to divisions amongst people but none as powerful and predominant as religion. It is a source of identity and helps define a way of life for the vast majority of people on this doomed planet and unfortunately a cause of great strife. Wouldn't we all be much better off if we abolished them all. The greatest religion of all is life. Life means to think and question not to blindly believe in dogma. Religion shackles our brain and limit our thoughts, for there is always a line which you cannot cross within the boundaries of religion. There should be no lines. The walls should be torn down and human thought must prevail. There should be no identity and religion other than humanity itself. Pink Floyd said it best:

Us and Them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do

In the meantime let's continue fucking each other for we are not done but only starting.....
