    when i was a student in the UK, i went to a few sessions regularly. it was fantastically interesting . i grew up in a mostly muslim society with parents of different faith but we do not have such group as we lack variety of cults (99% of us are muslims, LOL ). i discovered many religions, cults, met great people who were kind enough to explain me their core beliefs. we compared, looked at similarities. obviously all abrahamic faiths are very similar as they have the same origin but even if beliefs were non abrahamic, lots of the main values were also very similar. if you talk to a non believer, most of the time, those core values are also part of them. my point is there is no difference if you do not look at them too closely as we mostly all agree on the main ones. not quite sure why people kill each other, hate each other while a small effort to understand others, a will to compromise and meet others half way, makes us live in harmony despite our differences. i think certain people are just like crazy dog who like conflicts while you have people who seek to build an harmonious and sain environment for all.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
