“Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.” – Voltaire

This quote is about if you have someone that has power to make you believe in absurdities has the power to make you do unfair thing to yourself.

I have one example of this; men who abuse their lovely partners. This is a rather common problem in the world and it is totally wrong in my opinion, and I think that it is more than me think that way? I hope that everybody thinks that that is wrong of course.

When a woman gets abused, they first of all feel very sad, angry and have a very low confidence. The man says that he is very, very sorry and then the woman starts to think again. Thoughts like; “it were my fault that he became angry”, “he don’t do it again” and “he actually says that he love me”. Now, the women do the totally wrong thing, they forgive their men and take them back. This process keeps going on and on forever. Instead, the woman should leave the man directly! If a man abuses his partner once, will it happen again.


I don’t understand why women don’t leave the men. The men makes the women feel very low ,and in the society we live in today when women have a lower status than the men, it makes them feel any more stupid, bad, and on top of that, they get a very low confidence.


Another thing that I think you can link with this is peer pressure. If you hang out with some friends and they want to do something stupid that you maybe don’t think it is an absurdity, when it actually is it. This is also a big problem in the world, such as the men who abuse their partners.


To remove these really bad things I think that the women first of all should report the abuse to the police. Then should all the men realize that women are equal to them. Women should also stand up for themselves.

I think this quote is really true. I mean, just as you said, all of us always "fall" for the people that makes us believe that they have power. We forgive them if they have done something bad and wrong. We are with them doing something wrong just because they "have" power. Maybe we are doing this beacuse we self want's to feel the power over others as well. We are looking up to the people with "power". Even if the people are stupid.

I think it is really sad and heartbreaking that people can abuse their partners they used to love.

Great article Marielle! :)

I can agre with you on some points here, but it could be hard even when you'v been hurt by someone you love to juste leave them. If a women then have a child with the man it could be even harder for here to leave him. But i totaly agree with you that a man should not make a women feel stupid. It was really good when you realated it to peer presure. You gave me something to think about ;) good article.
