Chicken pox is caused by the varicella zoster virus. Funny how these doctors come up with such evil sounding names for viruses. A person with chicken pox is sieged by the evil Varicella Zoster forces for days. He has high fever, red blister looking spots all over his body, pain, itch, weakness, in short- utter chaos among the peace loving cells in his body and dis-ease in his very well being.
Then the doctor prescribes the anti viral, Valtrex (they also have funny heroic names for antibiotics) and a good samaritan may prescribe a mangosteen skin fruit juice to help fight the virus. These good forces of the Valtrex and the Mangosteen Skinheads go into fierce battle with the evil Varicella Zoster forces to liberate the body from the latter's evil rule in order to restore the body to good health.
Likewise in the fight for independence against an evil regime, we need good people to fight.
An evil regime is one where the forces of corruption, immorality, corruption, oppression of human rights, selfishness, greed, extremism, fundamentalism and materialism reign supreme. It results in the decline of values and ethics, propagation of racist and master race policies, unfair distribution of wealth, waste and pollution of natural resources, poor health care and education for its citizens and lack of concern for the handicapped and the elderly. It ignores the well being of the people. It encourages the few politicians in power together with their family members and cronies to insidiously and artfully drain away the country's resources and the people's money.
In the battle against the evil regime, there will be people who prefer to do nothing or choose to be obstacles to the fight, people who are lukewarm. They are then part of the disease. Then there are the people of character, righteousness, virtue and courage, who hunger and thirst for righteousness and justice, people who are willing to sacrifice to ensure good prevails at all costs for the well being of the nation- they are part of the cure. Not all these good people may see victory when it comes. In fact some will be persecuted, prosecuted, imprisoned, detained without trial and be casualites of war. However liberation will not be possible without them. In the fight for liberation, the ego has no place. All that is needed is just selfless sacrifice. The ego is an hindrance to the goal, which is, the liberation of the people from the evil, oppressive regime.
