Dogmatism, By Brian37

Dogmatism, By Brian37

 

This blight

On human history

Creates utopias

Used to divide

 

Feigned morality

In the form of labels

Politics, class

And religion

 

It leads to states

Like Iran

It leads to states

Like North Korea

 

It feed the Dark Ages

And it's all the same

The idea of absolutes

My way is the only way

 

Dogmatism must die

And give way to pluralism

Individuality

And protection of dissent

 

The modern world

Is too small

There is no more land

To conquer

 

If I just kill one more

Of my enemy

If I just force

Others to submit to me

 

And the result

Of such thought

Is a faucet

Flowing red, forever

 

This insidious blight

Must come to light

Exposed for the lie

It is

 

Absolutes

Do not exist

And can never

Be achieved

 

Anti trust

We should insist

All voices welcome

With dissent

 

We will never

Collectively

Rid the world

Of those we disagree

 

Dogmatism

Must surely die

In all its forms

It must die
