Fashion, career, morning drink, meal times, tradition, religion … there really aren’t too many categories people live by and in. Sure, these things change from culture to culture, yet the basic category structure remains the same.
Most cultures have a few rules each citizen is expected to adhere to. If people deter from them, often they are beaten, killed, or ousted from the society. Fear of these things keeps them in check and obedient.
Was the world always this way? Did the every day civilian always bow to the tyranny of the ones making the ‘rules’? Was there ever a time when people worked together in harmony for the benefit of all?
History is written by the ‘so called’ winner. We are finding now that so much of the past has been wiped from the books, only told what they needed us to know in order to get the public to back them on whatever decisions they made, and continue to make.
It is sad that millions of people were (and are) lied to and intentionally kept in the dark about their true heritage, all so the few can reign supreme over them. Civil wars of the past? I get the feeling it was about much more than we’ve been taught.
