Might is not always right

There are some people in the world that believe that the more members they have or the more they conquer, the more they are on the right side, or on God’s side. Examples include the Crusades, the Axis attempt of conquering the world in War World 2, and religious movements of today that suppress others, while forcing their beliefs on others.

Examples from history reveal that the majority, or the belief of the majority may not always be right.  I believe that the founders of the constitution were aware of this human fallacy, although the occurrence may be so minute.  Our system of government protects the views of the minority by utilizing the three branches of government, the executive, judicial, and legislature.

Ironically, it is because of our safeguard system, that these fanatic religious movements are able to expand their beliefs of conquering and subjugating their victims to their ways of life.

How do we deal with these religions movements that attempt to convert by force, fear and mob rule? How do we deal with religions that suppress one gender? How do we deal with people that believe that they are killing or suppressing others in behalf of God?

Because of our great system of government, we must protect the rights of those who oppose our views as long as they do break the laws of our country. But looking throughout history, the evil forces have always been defeated. Some may attribute this to God’s protection, and others may believe that God is an observer.

In summary, just because a religion has many members do not make the views of the religion correct, or has God’s approval. Remember the past where might was not always right. Religion should not be a clique or club; it should be a source of information that leads to sweeping the evils (greed, arrogance, and self love) from the minds of each individual. It should lead to a joyous life. It should unite and not divide the world. For those who believe that might is right, look at your own people. Are they happy?
