Murder – business as usual!

Murder – business as usual!
Most probably, we the humans have killing in our blood. Killing is a natural state for us. We have killed and continue killing with great ease. We usually kill if we are not expressly scared of severe punishment to follow.

Killing humans by humans has always been part of life throughout history. Man usually wanted to kill another man to survive, and thought that survival was made easier through killing others because those others were in his
way towards improved way of life. So murder used to be a tool for continued existence in the hands of a brutal being for which human life was worth nothing. But I thought this was before homo sapiens tried and managed to elevate themselves to the level of more or less civilized coexistence. We had to pull ourselves throughout harsh and bloodstained millennia to become more sparing and caring towards each other, and finally – by hook or crook – entered our modern times when the nations began to understand that slaughter, massacre and carnage are no longer acceptable. Yes, but why then the unbridled homicide continues like nothing has changed since man was killing man without any regret, thinking that a human life was not worth of anything? It seems that the advance of enlightenment, acts of faith and cultivation of mind have not helped at all – we have remained the savages we were born. Why? Here is why! Most probably, we the humans have killing in our blood. Killing is a natural state for us. We have killed and continue killing with great ease. We usually kill if we are not expressly scared of severe punishment to follow. Mild punishments might not have any effect on us if we seriously want to kill. We have to be frightened by something for refraining from an act of killing. We often contemplate killing our fellow humans when we get disgruntled over them for some reason – sometimes even for an absolute nonsense. We kill when we are jealous or revengeful. We kill when we get drunk and the devil unleashes some bed memories inside us. We kill when we think somebody has been unfair to us. We kill when it seems to us that the accumulated wealth needs a better distribution between the peoples of the world. We kill when we are stressed out and our body is asking for some relaxation. We kill if we feel offended. We kill when trying to cover up a crime. We kill to make robbery feasible. We even kill for no reason at all. We kill all the time, and we do those killings both massively and singularly, as a team or individually. It seems like we enjoy killing as one of the best models of our behavior. We kill our husbands and wives. We even kill our own children. And finally we kill ourselves when we come to believe that life is no longer worth living. I hate to admit that the instinctive animal world – to compare with – is less bloodthirsty than our reasoning human society. Blood thirst is the worst thirst the humans have ever known as part of their cannibalistic nature. Where this unbridled thirst for blood is coming from? I wonder how many of you would agree or disagree with what I am saying with such a sharp vehemence in my hurt human consciousness. But if all the above is not true, why then there is such a gory confrontation between those who we call terrorists and those who qualify themselves as the victims of terrorist acts? If all what I am saying is not accurate, why then the New York Twins where gone so momentarily, taking thousands of innocent souls down to the dark depths of Hades? If the truth is not voiced in my words, why then so many kids want to come to their schools armed and ready to murder their fellow students without even a vestige of remorse? If my thoughts lack precision, why then a soldier of one country makes a decision to destroy the lives of the guiltless civilians of another nation who he is supposed to protect – not to kill? If my judgment is wrong, why then there are millions of cases of homicides and suicides in courts world over? Why every television news show around the globe is always starting with the information about killing somebody somewhere? I just wonder if anything has changed in man’s character for thousands of years of our existence. Technically speaking, yes! How about nature wise? Is anybody thinking about the reasons of why we keep on killing each other so abundantly and relentlessly? There is an undeclared war going on between various civilizations around the globe if we respectfully borrow from an American wise man’s warning philosophy about the future of mankind. Some even predict that this undeclared war might very well be conducive to an officially declared war – call it World War III if you wish. This could doubtlessly be a possibility as long as we have not yet become allergic to blood, spilled around so profusely. And this happens when a human being claims to be living with highest moral standards, glibly praising lofty human ideals and values, expressed in modern literature, music, architecture, painting, dance and what not. Isn’t it funny that we are so proud of ourselves that we have raised the standard of living to the unheard of heights? Who needs that ridiculously sumptuous life style when we continue our habitual killings with such morbid zest and vigor? We better get our act together before it is too late!
