Righteous is not right

Righteous is not right
'Holier than thou' is not a holy sight
I am right you are not, is the core of righteousness
It has generated conflict wars and culture's bloody dark night.

It could be religious or ideological rigid belief
From the fanatic prison bars there is no release or relief
History is full of 'righteous wrongs' and unholy 'holier than thou' conflicts
Killing or healing this dangerous virus man has to turn a new leaf.

I right and righteousness is a rib of ego- survival
'I m ok you are not' is a neurotic feature and level
affecting individual family, community, nation and humanity
hatred, fights and wars erupt on 'holy' beliefs and rigid ideology
