People of power and authority want their own selfish piece of the pie. The tools they each use is not garner unthinking followers. Then to continue to separate and isolate the blind believers from the unthinking followers. The blind believers will be rewarded for their individual sacrifices.
These tools are of course political, religious, national, social, educational, wealth, cultural and race. There is even further separation of peoples because of certain physical characteristics.
We are one human race, one family and one people created by the single GOD of many names.
A righteous and holy people. Do not need governance from any authority save GOD/ALLAH/Grandfather.
