Collusion: (n) secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy
It is quite astounding–the number of corporations, politicians and even religionists in this world, who look on the entire scope of humanity as their own personal lab rats. I don’t know what causes someone to become so callous to the emotions and pain of another human being, to view them purely as a means to an end.
But when it happens–when that broach is made–evil appears. I know we like to put evil in a devil’s costume and attribute it to forces beyond our control, but evil always arrives when human beings think themselves superior and collude to hurt other fellow Earthlings.
Sometimes the cause may seem noble, or at least patriotic. Usually it involves the potential of an influx of cash.
But the underlying reason for the collusion is always some sort of great desire to feel more powerful and worthy by denigrating perceived lessers.
Although collusion is very much in the news, we must not tie the word to one investigation or scandal. We must check our own hearts.
Who are we trying to cheat, lie to, leave out, cut off and reject, simply because we want to be able to go into a room with our friends and celebrate our triumph?
