Intellectual Liberty (Letter 2)
Intellectual freedom is a deep rooted culture since ancient days. That the only way to fight for our rights without any man loosing his life is through intellectual liberty, for the sword and guns cannot positively change the world but our intelligence. Intellectual liberty has been opposed and influenced negatively by political and religious atrocities.
There are so many evidence of kings and kingdoms which raised and destroyed books, art, sculptures and so on, in other to create propaganda and manipulate the human society during their reign. This shows how intellectual freedom have been undermined by politicians and religion. For instance when Babylon conquered the kingdom of Israel they destroyed so many literally works of the Hebrews in other to manipulate the world of the time, the same happened, when Babylon was trawled down by the Persian empire, there were so many document which were destroyed and could have been useful to mankind. The brain behind this is to manipulate and to have dominion. There are so many religious groups who do not permit others to read books which do not back their religion. By this intellectual liberty is undermined and it limitations, so many people have been imprisoned, killed, prosecuted and executed just because the so called powers or rulers of the day will not accept the fact that there must be intellectual freedom. Especially when it criticizes their wrong deeds or their religion. There has been many occasion that ones view, right and freedom of expression has been undermined by religious and political leaders, simply because one will not accept defeat and will create atrocities and propaganda because of power and authority they want to enjoy. But who owns the world, no one but the world belongs to all mankind, and that every one has the right to decide his own destiny regardless of ones religious and political aims. Because of lack of intellectual liberty, humanity still finds it difficult in finding out the exact beginning of this human world and the exact reason of life. There are so many lies about the universe and the entire human race. For instance, there is a religious lies that the first man and woman on earth was Adam and Eve, who pave way for the entire human race, but humanity have not find out wither they are blacks, white, brown or what ever. Were they Indians or Africans, Chinese or Europeans, and if they were whites, how can a white man produce the race of black people, Indians or even the Chinese. because no matter the situation it can never happen, and the environment will never have influence on the natural appearance of other races. The Black man is still a Black man, so is an Arabian always an Arabian no matter where he goes. The real truth is no where to be found, for so many era, centuries, years, humanity has been living with such a lie which has become a mystery to the human world. And this is one of the greatest lies and propaganda created by religion and it people in other for them to have dominion over the souls of mankind, for they themselves do not know the beginning and the end of this world, they came to meet such perception, of course they are influence and pushed into such believes by either the society they were born into or by their parents, and they themselves do not analyze, think and research to know the truth by themselves, all these are the out come of illiteracy, thus lack of education and believes which can be described as barbaric and superstitious gotten hold of them, they proclaim a world which do not exist.
