That is correct. So why do we remain so obsessed with the need of identifying metaphysical enemies? Very sad, isn't it? in old Iraq, Baathists, women and the sick won, but victims of the regime lost.

A world of winners, losers, hate, unintended consequences, deception & delusion.  I no longer think we LIVE in an uncivilized world-- not a real Life-- we EXIST.

 This is probably the worst legacy of monotheistic religions in the modern world. As somebody said, you need not believe in an absolute Truth to kill people. But to kill in the process as well the truth with a small "t", this is surely of great help.
