I wasn't sure if I should post this on the 10th anniversary of the "9/ll attacks" or for Columbus Day. So I chose Columbus day.
If it weren't for ego, many things in history, including many atrocities wouldn't have happened. Radical religious practitioners are no different. Crusaders, Jihad, Conquistadors, they are all based on an attitude that of ego, that their religion is best. And it always ends up in unnecessary deaths and disposal of innocent lives.
With that in mind, for Columbus Day, I leave you with this video. But consider it has not only been Columbus and his time, but so many other "leaders" who have killed and harmed many innocent people in the sake of ego.
