Where is this not the case?

Reader comment on item: The Middle East's Tribal Affliction

Submitted by DONVAN (United States), Jan 28, 2008 at 09:53

The "Middle east" is a basket case because the mythology forced on the inhabitants is tyrannical. It would be amusing were it not for the deadly nature of the mythology. Tribalism is the result of the mythology , not the cause. The institutionalized tryanny of the Mu'slam myth will destroy any effort toward social progress.

Where is this not the case? Huge transfers of wealth into the region has only served to strengthen the tryannical mythology, and provide more suffering to the pathetic, illiterate,and ignorant masses unfortunate enough to occupy that cesspool. Some responsibility lays with the intellectual fashion of the moment which basically is a strategy of obsequiousness. Intellectuals spend time explaining the whys, ifs, and buts of a mythology destructive to the human person. This inflates the ego of the intellectual, gets him/her grant money, and appeases the Academic establishment and leaves the people living in a hellish reflection of a tyrannical mythology which praises death, and advocates slavery, and is impervious to reform.
