New World Order

The only hope he saw, was in a total re birth of human religious beliefs. Families that stay together pray together, can be blown apart together too. If the seed of reason can be planted, it can he harvested too. To reason one had to listen, listening, unlike shopping it meant using the brain. Listening to the gods of war, explain themselves on the TV, trying to appear reasoned, each defendant putting on a show, hoping to impress the global jury, all of them well educated, intellectuals of a kind, harry couldn’t see how these men, they were all men, how did they manage to have followers, or were people like sheep, as the bible says. The rules of social engagement, mixed marriages were a non event. A dowry also had to be present. Children were to be brought up in the religion of the husband; the list went on and on. With men so unreliable, it didn’t make sense putting them under pressure. Women had to be shielded from men, would have been a far better excuse to blame global warming for covering their heads. And women were the property of the husband and children too, till all were dead. Education of the woman was considered dangerous. She might learn to think for herself. The list of funny and odd rules the various religions used to control women mainly, made interesting TV too. The program was Swedish made. That explained its clarity. Finding a wife or husband is a matter for the parents explains the narrator. The background image is bleak, of a small village, huddled together rocks; in rags the children laugh and run about. Marrying cousins, half sisters, uncles, there was a clause for every possibility. All religions he concluded, found it necessary to control the woman. When she bled, for whom she bled, by whom she bled, to the last drop, her life was managed for her. Women must be thick concluded harry, for putting up with all these rules.
