If not for fear… It is said fear breeds respect, or at least fear creates an environment where respect arises as a better alternative. Because the easier way to deal with the things you fear is to claim you respect them. Most of us, if not for fear, we would have no respect for most things. For this reason, the new generation in Uganda has decided to fear itself.
The women are fearing men (and rightly so), while the men are also fearing the women (even more rightly so). The only way for cooperation is to fear each other. For the first time, Ugandan relationships are being run like guerrilla operations. For guerrillas, the rule is clear, constant paranoia, constant alertness.
What else explains the booming DNA businesses? Every other business is struggling, but the business of ascertaining if one is responsible for the new genes. But then, shouldn’t ignorance be bliss? Shouldn’t it calm a soul to never have known the otherwise truth? Why on earth would you perform DNA on children aged above 18 years? Is it not the case of be careful what you are looking for, because one day you will find it. And that is life’s worst curse. To find the things we are looking for, and not be happy with what we found.
