It is difficult to believe but the truth is that a lot of people are more embedded in their religions , cultures and Races than their country/Nation. Remember Moses in Egypt when he killed an Egyptian for a fellow Israelite? What about the Black and White Reaction following O.J. Simpson’s verdict? Evidence abound that most Christians and Muslim are more loyal to their faith than their country. The Jehovah witness do not participate in voting because of their faith but they enjoy the benefits of democracy. The church leaders some how have been able to create fear in their followers that their faith is ahead of the country but they also enjoy the dividends of democracy and they don’t pay taxes either. What a paradox?
Culture is actually the most potent of this trios. Take a look at many countries, every ethnic group is holding fast to their culture. Thank God that most countries created laws that prohibit the full participation of a lot of cultures that would have been very virulent to the populace. Religions, cultures and possibly race have their advantages and they must be guided to work with the government in a democratic manners for the advancement of humanity. Is every Race racist against another race? Are cultures against one another? Are religions against religions for profit and phenomenon of dominance? Your opinion?
