With the recent developments in Iran I have been more optimistic about our relations and the problems that their nuclear program causes. Today I heard a news report about the conservative fundamentalists in Iran who are practically rioting in the streets to protest any improved relations with the West. Wow, I thought, those Muslim conservative are always the problem (9/11, Benghazi, Egypt, Terrorism in general…). Then on second thought I realized that it is not just a Muslim issue but that fundamentalist Christians prevent my gay friends from marrying and some have killed doctors, Jewish Ultraconservatives spit at little girls who are going to school because their skirts are too short, Buddhist Fundamentalists burn down Hindu temples (and vice versa), and on and on. As a general statement it is always the conservative fundamentalists everywhere and for all times who are doing the things I consider evil. When are we going to finally throw off the shackles of our brutish uneducated history and realize that liberal (in the dictionary definition not the political one) progressive and humanistic approaches are the only path to happier and healthier humans?
