Unfortunately there are other oppressive systems in place that makes that harder than it should be.
Well if theres a god who was powerful enough to have created the heavens and the earth,but then just sat by and watched without doing anything while millions of little children screamed and cried in anguished terror as they were ripped from their parents arms and beaten and starved and tortured and shot and hanged and gassed and hurled into flaming ovens,that god is f###en diabolic and evil and created this temporary material realm to punish our eternal souls within, a horrible and very real possibility that most people will deny and bury beneath greed and refuse to accept because its just too brutal and too frightening to face...
It is we, the People, who are doing this to each other. Only we can stop it and only when we choose to do so.
