In a world that is fashioned out of slavery, oppression, and above all a religion that one man is better than the next based on the color of their skin. In a worldly sense, most organizations that fight for equality needed a person who speaks traditional truth about justice.
The world is not a fair place. However, most people have dealt with that, living under the yoke of unfairness and oppression, until they couldn’t anymore.
The urge to break free, led to the founding of the organizations that fight for peace, equality, fairness, and justice, but after over 50 years of existence, any sane human being would question why these organizations haven’t achieved much. Were they hijacked along the way?
With this single question; why haven’t these organizations that fight for human rights, equality and justice achieved much? One would be forgiven to think that all people think the same.
As a teacher who seeks to help other people disengage from what ails the world, and as such, what makes such organizations dysfunctional; they are bound to meet the great opposition from people who benefit from the status quo.
Here is where, whoever controls information must be questioned, because of their bigger role in creating what is sought to be changed. They say information is power and so, based on the words of American singer Jim Morrison said, “Whoever controls the media, controls the mind”, it is clearly that disseminators of information, alias the media should be held accountable.
It even gets more interesting when there are accusations that all the world’s media houses, diverse as they look in name, are just a web that twines back to about three owners.
Now, this begins to draw a picture in your mind, on how the world of a conflict and peace personnel is not always easy.
