The Ills of Misinformation

People of many nationalities would do anything humanly possible to have peace. Wars and rumors of wars have become deafening and any form of fresh air of peace will be appreciated, even by the hardhearted.
Disseminate only the right information
Achieving peace looks so distant that many have not yet realized that the peace we seek is already in our hands to actualize.

The emergence of social media and the ubiquitous nature of both the internet and digital devices in recent years has brought about a different dimension, albeit in negativity, of information sourcing and dissemination. Anything posted on social media immediately becomes viral and accessible by as many people as possible, without any consideration to their state of sanity and maturity. Different posts are met with different shades and levels of analysis, nterpretation and reactions. Depending on the reaction that got the most support, peace could be impeded.

These days, there have been miriads of jungle justice meted out on, most times innocent people who met their end to life in the hands of misinformed mobs. These group of angered people took laws into their own hands without verifying the authenticity of the 'rumors' which were the driving force behind their actions. In many cases, such brutality had ended in avoidable regrets, with lives lost, never to be recovered, and personal images and dreams  tarnished and thwarted, never to be redeemed.

In other places, people have been brainwashed to believe wrong ideologies that have turned out to be inhuman and detrimental to the societies. It has been revealed that most of the crisis rocking many nations and societies today are the products of many years of adulterated teaching and coaching, in the name of religion, tradition or just blinded loyalty. 

We at Moral Digest support the fact that  freedom of speech cannot be traded off or subdued for any reason in a democratic setting, educating the masses appropriately (and unbiased) by the authorities will go a long way to curb misinformation generated by conspiracy theorists being used by  inhuman, self-centered individuals most especially religious and traditional leaders, politicians, celebrities and in some cases, elites. These are people who have some clout of devotees who are loyal to them to the extent of believing every words proceeding from their mouths without any questioning. These so-called die-hard followers are ready to stake their lives for their superiors at any cost.

Tradition, religious beliefs and technology advancement are good but their adoption need to be subjected to proper control and regulations. Neglecting this obvious need renders them more harmful over their usefulness. 

Remember, not every information is wrong but the way even the right information is handled could pose a great threat and danger to life and property.

Information is power but not when it is misguided.

Lessons about Life

Everyday that dawns always has something very special to teach us. The learning curve may not be rosy but is always worth the toils.
Life is full of lessons
As we resume our usual hustles after the weekend which we at Moral Digest assume was quite restful, at least to many, we encourage one another to always make the best use of every opportunity that beckons.

From that not-so-good situation, learn that it's not the end of life and tomorrow holds better bargains.

And from the positive events, learn that the worst could happen and always be prepared so as not to be taken unawares. 

Have y'all a pleasant week ahead!

Worries too, shall pass away!

Even in the face of tribulations, do not lose your head. 

As long as you aren't lazy but had...

Done all you had to do
Put in your best effort
Adopted every possible strategy
Sought relevant advice where necessary

... and being truly satisfied that you had done your best there is...

Be optimistic... hold your head high, and always remember that the very storm you face at the moment, shall soon, very very soon, calm and you shall celebrate.

Why worry? This, too, shall pass away!

You were created for a purpose!

God, the creator is perfect in His plans. 

The Holy Book says that after God had completed His creation, He saw that all His creation was good (Gen. 1:31). Yes, everything including you and me. You are part of His plans, and so do I.

Each person was created for a purpose and it is a person's responsibility to achieve that purpose in life.

So promise yourself today that you will achieve your own purpose for being a creation of God irrespective of the situation.

Begin NOW to realize God's intention for creating you and make Him proud. Make it real!

Go for it! You can do it! It's in you!

Give yourself a reason why you SHOULD succeed and not otherwise.

Never allow the vicissitudes of life to 'steal' that purpose from you.

Remember, no short cuts! Doing so will lead to deviating from the pathways marked by God for you.

It may delay, but as long as you remain patient, your destiny cannot be stopped.

It can take only YOU, to stop it. So begin now!

Stranded Nigerians: Thank you, the UAE government

Moral Digest wishes to thank the government of the United Arab Emirates for its humanitarian gestures of free flights made available for the evacuation of stranded Nigerians in the Gulf country back to Nigeria. 

UAE government gifts free flights to evacuate stranded Nigerians
Moral Digest has also observed with interest how the same government has continually aided many nations across geographical locations with medicals and other useful supplies in the bid to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The applause the UAE leadership has received from all quarters shows how true leadership ought to be and as we join the rest of the good-minded people globally to commend your efforts, we pray that your resources never run dry. Please do not relent.

We wish and hope that your exemplary leadership which is evident in the faces of Emiratis, and your impeccable bilateral relations with other nations, which again was recently made visible in the treaty the UAE signed with Israel, will be emulated by other leaders especially in Africa so that they realize how important any unbias leadership could mean to the people and for economic growth and development.
