“If your prime identity is that of a regular victim, then you cannot be happy; even if you try to force it, you will lose it in the first minute. The joy of self-victimhood gives clear rules on Happiness. One is that you cant be happy if your identity is fitted or caged in a victim world. There are many reasons why people who compare or regard themselves as random victims do not see themselves as in control of their normal lives. Whatever happens in their life happens to them, not just by them. For individuals who regard themselves as victims, spend a lot of time trying to understand why the world is so tough and unfair to them, the same applies to a student who always sees herself as being chosen on is an unhappy soul, the same applies to the person who goes with the same attitude into their adulthood.” –Dennis Prager

Big SECULAR governments. Stalin, Mao, Hitler, pot, all big countries. With that, why will anybody trust such organizations? It is amazing how many people have imbued the seminary message that more individuals have been murdered by war, religion, pandemics, or anything else in the history of humanity. NO. States have killed more people than anything else in our era, and just in the last century alone, we lost millions all due to political difference, and none of those cases were linked with religion; you don’t learn that in school.” –Dennis Prager

Nor do you need to have some indentations, be balding or overweight, or want a kid to be certain that you have a missing puzzle. You can only allow any real or purely perceived flaw to weaken your well-being and Happiness.” –Dennis Prager

The right today is occupied with fighting Islamic while the left is at war with Islamophobia.” –Dennis Prager
