stop-bullyingIf I told you I knew 5 different ways to start Armageddon, and destroy most, if not all life on Earth, at least a large portion of all the humans in the World. Would you want to know …?

Then imagine I completely destroyed your life, took away everything from you that mattered, and made your future become as dark as I possibly could. Eliminating all your feelings for belief in the future, in all regards, and left you with a deep feeling of that your entire life was in vain, and there was nothing to be done. Humanity was fundamentally evil, and there is nothing else to be done, but to ease the sufferings of the other animals on this planet, by extinguishing all human life …?

The first question might result in an absolute NO from you! However, if I followed the recipe I described in the second scenario, not only would you actively pursue Armageddon, to get “justice”, but you would highly likely become capable of actually finding a way to implement it! In fact, history is full of people who have had this pursuit. The obvious candidates are Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin, but there are lots of other “minor candidates” who have pursued this activity. Anders Behring Breivik and Muhammed Atta comes to mind for instance, and to some extent, it can easily be argued that they succeeded …

People like Anders Behring Breivik, Muhammed Atta, and Adolf Hitler for that matter, are not born, they are “created” in fact! By “created”, I mean by you, and your next door neighbor. The ones who choose to look away when somebody else is being bullied, being thankful for that it is not you the bullies are picking on. You, through your ignorance, and the bullies, through their hate, are “creating” Armageddon! Every day! By making normal people become so angry at the world, that they see Armageddon as the “just solution to their problems”

If I made you loose all faith in the future, and took all your friends away from you, and completely isolated you, to the point where you felt humanity at large was fundamental evil, you would easily become one of these people! You would start looking for ways to “implement” Armageddon, and you would probably succeed! And although an “intelligent” man can more easily find a way to implement Armageddon, intelligence is not a requirement in fact. Not as long as I give you the time you need to find your way into the Apocalypse! Even an imbecile can implement Armageddon, if he’s motivated enough, and is given enough time. Muhammed Atta wasn’t particularly bright, still he to a large extent succeeded at starting World War III for all practical concerns, you might argue …

This is the natural consequence of bullying! Have that in mind the next time you turn your head when someone is being bullied, and you’re happy it’s not you the bullies are picking at! You could be headed for a one-way path to Armageddon …

If I may come with one plea for Christmas this year, it would be to give your next door neighbor a hug! Give a homeless man a meal! And tell someone who needs it that they’re Beautiful! Because, just like words can hurt, they can also Heal! You could, without even knowing it, save the World from Armageddon. A man desperately searching for justice, through the means of Armageddon, can easily change his mind in a second! Simply by realizing someone is happy he is alive! And by realizing somebody will miss him when he is gone! Simple by feeling loved and needed! Simply by being seen and noticed! And that’s a small price for a hug 🙂
