A Friend Laments Belgian Atrocity

Our most heartfelt condolences go out this morning to all of the victims of this latest terror attack. But everyone must keep in mind that the sick religious fervor of these attackers makes victims of us all. Because of them our cultures and societies become daily more totalitarian. Our rights, freedoms and privacy are eroded in the name of security. How can it be that with the technical and scientific progress we have made worldwide in the last two centuries that we are still fighting a religious crusade? I am sickened by this. Humans are better than this, or at least should be. It is time to put these cultural fairy tales where they belong–in history. We are one species, let’s start acting like it.
