Do we love fighting?

We talk about peace. We talk about cooperation; we talk about coexisting together with heartiness. But do we actually want it ? I doubt it. It seems that most of the times we just talk about it because we want peace and happiness in our lives at a moment or just to say it. I’ll share why I think so. Last night I was going trough my Facebook account  and just came across one post about the good physique of an actor. When i clicked the comment section I witnessed people fighting profusely. Users were fighting with each other by justifying other actor’s physique. After few minutes they wandered from the topic of actors’ physique to his religion and started calling god(of course they divided god by words like ‘yours’ and ‘ours’) by foul names. Eventually they went one step ahead and ended up using the most abusive words and language possible for each others mothers and sisters. And all for what? where did it all start? It was all discussed over a petty issue of an actor’s physique? If that’s not our inclination for fights(physically or verbally but  copiously) and if that’s not our natural foible to abuse someone’s mother and sister in a fight when we don’t even know them; then what is that? 

We blame politicians for provoking us to fight but do we ask for their consent before making such statements and commenting such things on social media? NO. Do we ask them before abusing god and each other’s mothers and sisters? NO. We do it because we like abusing others who belong to other communities and sections.It satiate our ego and the anger we have for system. But then what right do we have to blame others? We are abusing others and getting the same. We reap what we sow. If we really do not want to be abused and looked down upon by others in the world then the only thing is to give others what we accept from them. If a normal post about an actor is taking us to such an aggressive level then what are we heading towards and where does our future lie? The answer lies in our inner self and should be given by our conscience. To make any country better, its countrymen should rise above the shallow barriers made by some people wishing to divide them in the name of religion, cast or creed. If we really have that aggression; it should be used to bring peace and then to sustain it. If the tendency to fight is so high in us then it must be turned into a positive one; to bring peace. Thank you.
