QUESTIONING OUR VALUES

A very long time ago when the world was young and peaceful, humans then set values for themselves. How they organize themselves, how they behave and what they hold dear to their selves. These values are what subsequent humans met and continued to hold it.

As the world continued to grow and develop, things change over time including our values. A lot of people started changing their ways of life from the traditional way. The world changed and developed fast, faster than we could control and ever imagined.

To sociologists, values are standard of behaviors we regard to as normal. It is still the best definition today because it covers a whole of aspect of what value entails. It is just so evident today. A lot of people ‘invent’ behaviors that are so questionable and instead of castigating it we all see it as normal and hold dear to us and it becomes a value.

I am not receptive to change. I love new things every time but when it goes out of hand then I start to dislike it. A lot of people today have regretted what they once held dear to themselves and are suffering the consequence of their values.

A lot of things are happening around us. When we listen to or read the news we discover that a lot of things have gone wrong. A very recent example is about the Charlie Hebdo scandal. The journalists who publish cartoons to mock the social hills of the society went to the extreme by publishing a cartoon about Mohammed (S.A.W), the Muslims religious leader. On hearing the news, the world went haywire strictly condemning the act by the Muslims extremists and showing support for Charlie Hebdo magazine. The whole situation just makes me laugh and cry at the same time.

I laugh at the west’s selfishness or foolishness maybe. It is so evident that the wests are biased on this issue. These journalists could have averted trouble if they had stuck to the original plan of criticizing politics not religion especially Islam. Trouble comes to you when you look for it. And they found it.

And I also cry for the Islam extremists because of the lost values. For Christ sake why would they kill the journalists like rams at the. Charlie hebdo went too far but they should not take revenge for Allah. Since Allah is alive, let him fight for himself.

Well, I hope things change. I hope people of this world realize that the world is nose-diving into hell. We are all the pilots of that plane. Let us do ourselves good by changing the course of the plane in the right way. We could avert the danger and challenges the world is facing right now if everyone can uphold the right values that was set a really long time ago. I am ready. Hope you are.
