Times I wonder the passion with which we criticize and castigate our leaders for flaws and errors of judgement that they make.
Several time I think to myself, if i am on that seat, to what extent will i go? Will i do worse or do better?
I have had reasons several times in the past to be wary of such and times without number i have been proven right on it.
What moral right do you have to judge someone when you are susceptible to doing the same thing and even worse off?
Scriptures read, remove the log in your eye before attempting to remove the log in another person’s eye. The moral, examine yourself first before you slam your neighbour. The good book also says, the same measure you use to judge others will be used to judge you. My point, i try to put myself in the position of the victim, if am that other end, how possible will i avoid not falling into the same pit?
Contrary to what does who are close to me may think, I perform harsh appraisal and do scenario playing on myself. And each time the way i react to people who do wrong is the way I would react to myself if am the offending party.
That is to say, when i walk into a mall, i will go to the section where i want to buy…there all that appeals to me will be selling to me if you get my point.
I find it objectionable if you condemn public holders for not following due process in their dealings but try to take short cuts, yet you take short cuts for granted.
You mock them for giving a political answer whereas you readily give a political solution to issues.
You criticize for double-speak yet you do a triple speak.
You criticize for swaying with the winning crowd, yet you sway to the side of whatever issue that suits your whims at any point in time.
You castigate men for not standing firm yet when you stand….you tow the same line…
You tell men follow this path but you turn the other way..
You preach peace with one hand holding the Olive leaf the other holding an SMG…
Am i absolving myself here…..nein…far be it because it’s a thin line and I fall overboard a times. But as i said earlier, i judge myself harsh if i do it.
But the question still is;
Where is the moral authority……..
