Yet more mindless atrocity from suicide bombers – in Brussels this time; yet more innocent people blown apart, severely injured, traumatised…
And for what?
Does it never occur to the fanatics of this world that even one death is too big a price to pay for religious dogma, bitter feelings, land ownership – or just being RIGHT?
No passage in any religious book, no belief culled from an ancient Patriarchal system, justifies this kind of outrage.
Killing, wounding, terrorising – these are NOT the right way to deal with the many wrongs in our world.
And NO argument, no matter how well-crafted, no matter how stylish the rhetoric, is going to convince me otherwise.
The price exacted by irrational anger, by human greed and resentment, is too high.
It is time we, as a race, GREW UP and left the spiteful revenge phase of the school playground behind.
