This is exactly how society is controlled…by a Belief System (BS) that is an artificial construct. The same holds true for the Easter Bunny,tooth fairy AND… all levels of government and organized religion (not God)…If you believe they exist and that you need to obey and follow them and their rules, then you are their puppet, their slave..
You don’t follow Hindu or Muslim customs and traditions.. WHY? It’s because you were not TAUGHT (imprinted and programed) with those social beliefs so they don’t apply to you and you are free of their control.
Food for thought… or not.
