Josef Fritzl - A face of evil?
Josef Fritzl – A face of evil?

Is this is the face of evil or a face of a man who believes in an idea called ‘personal benefit’?

Josef Fritzl kept his double life a secret even from his loved ones for over 25 years. Neighbors, friends and of course the world was shocked at the revelations that Josef Fritzl had kept his own daughter as captive in his cellar and fathered her seven children. He had virtually used his daughter as a sex slave for his own pleasures.

His defense team and the world is looking for answers; how could this happen? There must be something wrong with him.

I think the point is simple and clear. He was a man who believed that his personal benefit took preference over others. He ensured that his desires were fulfilled at all costs. Is he the only one to be blamed for his actions? Or should the society also bare some responsibility?  If an idea that can be used to such extremes should be revisited and the society also should be held accountable.

The world and in particular the West is also responsible for such actions as they are the propagators of such ideas as personal benefit. It has been the cause of wars throughout the 20th century and continues to cause misery.

    Wow. So in one blog post, you’re complaining about the stereo-type that Americans place on Islam since 9-11 regarding Shah Rukh Khan, and then in another blog post, you’re stero-typing westerners by claiming that their society produces wackos like this?

    Why couldn’t I simply say that Islam creates wackos like those who bombed the World Trade Centers? You’re stereo-typing all of western society just as I am stereo-typing all of Islamic religion in my example. Not all Mulsim followers will go murder thousands of civillians in an office building and not all members of western society will rape their own daughters.

    Western society does not need to be blamed any more than Islamic society should be blamed for breeding terrorist tendancies.

    You’re a hypocrite and I think your credibility just dropped to about 0 with me. Thanks for the good laugh.

    Well why don’t we just discuss one topic at a time.
    1. The reality is that ALL Muslims are being blamed for a few people who have misunderstood what they are reading. Otherwise you will not find hundreds of people go missing without a trace in the USA because they are Muslims. Look at the rendition law and camp x-ray.
    2. I do belive any society should bare responsibility of individuals that they produce. It does not mean they are to be balmed or ridiculed. It means they need to think of a collective duty.
    3. When i refer to the West, I refer to the Western governments, I do not belive the West (Western governments) are the true representatives of the people. The governments do not ask its people if they should go to war or not, they ask the multinationals who funded their campaigns.
    4. I do believe giving a man, a community an idea that your ‘personal benefit’ is the most important thing in life is a problem. The USA has gone into Iraq, Afghanistan etc not to help others but secure its personal benefit.
    4. I do not believe I am a hypocrite but if this is your opinion, then be it.
