perspective /pəˈspɛktɪv/
A particular attitude towards or way of regarding something; a point of view.

It is often hard to see an opinion from the eyes of another. It is strange that a fact that seems to be undeniable, can be warped beyond recognition in someone else's mind. No matter how concrete something seems to be, people can interpret it in a variety of ways. It almost seems that with the age and history of humanity, you can find evidence to support everything. Nobody can ever claim their cause is perfection, as they have all made mistakes at some point in the history of humanity. You can claim that Science is evil due to twisted experiments that were one performed, or that all religion is the enemy, due to the infamous persecution of minorities that has come from it. I am certain if you looked through enough History you could find proof of evil against every organisation in the world that's more than a few years old. You could claim in reality that everyone is your enemy for supporting one of these organisations, and that no one is on the side of good.

So perhaps the past has more weight than it should. Most historic evil is a product of its time, so maybe people should focus on the present, on how organisations have adapted to the 21st century and apologised for their past. I don't think I will trust any organisation that claims to be "traditional", as their tradition is likely ingrained with evil and bigotry. In the current age, there is no room for tradition from a time that was deeply flawed. Of course, if part of a organisations current view is that it refuses to acknowledge that it's past was incorrect, Ignorance like that is just as pathetic. 

It almost seems like nobody will ever have a perfect view, as if you could always find a flaw in their past. (A certain Girl I know who seemed normal then turned out to be a Nazi upon questioning springs to mind) The two solutions would be to either find new organisations that have had no time to have a bad past yet, or try to dismiss flaws in the past if said organisation has acknowledged and apologised for them. Over and Out,
