THE EVIL INHERENT IN YOUTHS UNLEASHED
It was a British novelist, Willam Holding who propounded the theory of Evil Inherence through his novel titled ”Lord of the Flies”. As a military Officer with a theological background, Golding deposited the thought that even little children could become absolutely corrupt, when enthroned with freedom to exercise power.
The Golding’s allegorical piece comes to play in the current spate of looting spree across my dearest country, Nigeria. A siege or so to call that started with the mere expression of annoyance and frustration at bad governance and human rights violation, has become a criminal enormity that turns out noble course into a mere charade. Looting of properties, whether palliative, public or private is evil.
So if the youths who seemed to be the hope of a better future when the protest started, have decided to metamorphose into hoodlums or vandals or even thieves (not minding the grammatical nomenclature), then it is comfortable to foresee a gloomy day, when power finally rests on their shoulders in our utopian future.
We the youths should be wary of the bad elements among us and the perversed hearts in our midst, if ever we have a chance to fight the very evil inherent in us. We must by all means, end the dastardly looting spree.
