VIOLENCE IS INHERENT IN MAN
Throughout history, man has always enjoyed and applied violence. . .
In the Middle Ages, executions were watched with detestable enthusiasm. . .
People would go in their best clothes to execution circles to ecstatically witness the executions whether implemented by guillotine or burning.
During the Roman Empire era, gladiators killing one another and lions tearing people to pieces were witnessed with the same euphoria.
Centuries have elapsed. . . civilization has progressed. . . But the passion inherent in man
Has not changed at all. . .
Today, in Iraq people are being tortured. . .and by those who support human rights. . .
Today, in Spain, deafened by the tumultuous cries of “Ole,” spectators watch bulls be killed in agony.
People mesmerizingly watch the struggle of those who try to disfigure one another’s faces and bodies. . . .and paying considerable amounts to do so. . .
Today, people go to soccer games with gyro knives. . .filled with unintelligible hooliganism to hurt one another.
Today, an old kind of violence has become the mode. . .
Dog fights. . .shockingly watched by women, too.
And, and with high level book making. . .
In the fiestas in Argentina. one of the favorite entertainments is to tie a rooster by its feet to a tree and to try to pluck its head off on horseback. . . what pleasure do people take in trying to pluck off the head of a rooster?
On the Internet videos are transmitted of people being beheaded with exclamations of All-u Ekber (God is Great). . . How can a person do such a thing to another person?
Have you watched the video called “8 mm”? The video is about how a person was tortured and then killed. . .
And people experiencing orgasms while witnessing such violence cannot be human. . .because it is only the devil that takes pleasure in the suffering of humans. . .
Wars have been imposed to mankind as a saga. . . and those who have killed the most people in war have been considered as heroes.
On the T.V., images with violence and programs such as “Someone is Watching Us” and “Would You Be Our Bride” containing all sorts of vulgar language, . . . have the highest ratings. . .
Today, the games children and youth play contain violence and bloodshed. . If today’s children grow up exclusively seeing these games, this will negatively affect their young and tender brains and ignite the clandestine violence inherent in them.
Yes, violence is inherent in man. . .to manifest or eradicate it belongs to us. . .
If, instead of separating two brawling people in the street, we stop to watch with pleasure and curiosity. . . then we are preparing a suitable medium for violence to manifest. . .
As to those who believe and work righteousness, God will pay them (in full) their reward; But God loveth not those who do wrong. VERSE 57, THE FAMILY OF IMRAN (AL-l-Imran) SURA 3
MAY GOD BE YOUR BELOVED AND YOUR COMPANION
SHOWING THE WAY
