Self confidence

Self confidence is dangerous.
People with low self confidence and low self esteem don't start wars.

Don't trust yourself

The spell is broken when you begin to question your own beliefs.
Questioning others' beliefs do not lead to anywhere.
(If this questioning does not make you question your own beliefs).

Christianity and slavery

During the 1700s, slavery and the slave trade began to be questioned.
A new kind of Christian ethics and morals emerged.
Nothing i written in stone.

 When the British parliament voted to abolish slavery in the colonies in 1833, the Bench of Bishops voted against — as they did on almost all reform bills. To get the bill through, Parliament voted to compensate slave owners (There was no compensation for the slaves themselves). The Abolition of Slavery Act of 1833 provided for £20 million to be paid to West Indian plantation slave owners in compensation for the loss of their 'property'. The Anglican Church received £8,823 for the loss of slave labour on its Codrington plantation in the West Indies.
Individual Anglican Churchmen had to be compensated separately. Henry Phillpotts, Bishop of Exeter, and three business associates received nearly £13,000.

Calm down

You don't have to realize yourself.
You don't have to be someone, achieve something, become something.
You don't have to be fabulous, happy, serene, radiant, loving, successful...
These are all neurotic commandments from the self improvement industry.
It's not a crime to be tired or displeased.
You have the right to be, simply what you are, for the time being.
