Power

Power between humans is a fascinating thing.

By the time we were born to now, we are constantly being taught an awful lot of social rules.
Giving power to people during some moments of our lives is one of them.

We respect teachers in school, parents at home, police in the streets, bosses at the job, and government above everything.

Government is usually ( 😀 ) made of humans. We are humans too, if we are told to respect and obey others, why isn’t it the same for humans in the government?

What’s justifying us giving power to somebody else ? And to somebody else we don’t know?
If I want that power, why wouldn’t I get it?
I don’t think anybody is inferior or superior to me. And it is the same for everybody else.
We are all different yet we are raised to compete against each other.

When something goes wrong on purpose (or not) in a country, we are being told that our neighbor is responsible of it.
Why? because he has a different skin color? a different religion? a different sexual orientation?
I don’t care about any of them, he doesn’t have the power to make laws or tell me what to do.

We keep on trying to obey people with power without thinking if the order they gave us is appropriate.

By being a soldier in an army, you absolutely have to follow orders. It could be a life or death matter, for your colleagues or yourself.
You are sometimes sent in another country, and you must kill people you don’t know and who wants to kill you.
Why do you must kill these people?
Why should you try to apply the rules of your country in another unknown country?
Because your government will get a lot of money thanks to that?
Is it worth betting your life and the ones from your entourage like that?
If you are just from the police (the inside army), is it worth obeying your government when you know it is wrong? Is it worth doing so when you know that your government will betray you just after?
Why kicking pacifist protesters asses? Why respecting stupid orders?

We should inform more ourselves about the people around us and stop trying to find enemies all around.

It’s not because some person arrived to live in the same country than you that he is your enemy.
It’s maybe the people telling you that he is your enemy, who aren’t that trustworthy.
