R is for reason, raison d’etre, rationalization

Day 20 of Blogging from A to Z.  Today’s letter is R.

R is for reason, raison d’etre, rationalization.

People always have reasons for the things they do. It’s a need to find that reason, a Raison d’etra.  But when they cross the line to rationalization, therein lies the problem.

That process is rampant throughout the darker times in the  history of our planet, from tyrants, to despots to the church.  Yes, the church – think crusades, inquisition, slavery, native Americans, and every other intolerance of those who do not follow a particular belief.
