"The reason that the subjects of politics and religion are so taboo, the reason so many people become fired up when discussing them, is that most of us are taught to believe in the necessity and goodness of these two establishments - and yet there exists within each so much corruption and deceit. When a person must decide upon one leader or another, upon one set of beliefs or the next, one is usually forced to choose between the lesser of two evils, and it inevitably causes frustration. Most people have been led to believe that we must have religion and politics to keep society from crumbling. However, all too often, the leaders from these two arenas cause nothing but detriment for society; all throughout history, they have been the ones able to see the bigger picture, to see outside the box. And they have used this knowledge to control and manipulate the people contained within the box, within society, using mainly fear and intellectual suppression. We forget that we ourselves created both politics and religion, and that we ourselves can change or get rid of them. We believe they are beyond our control, but nothing could be further from the truth."
