Promise for a new Afghanistan: How trailblazers change the world?

Those of you who don’t share my vision to end the repression in Afghanistan and say it’s not a worthy cause, not the right time or won’t work, let me remind you that post-conventional thinkers and trailblazers who fight to end the people’s misery and stand for human progress have always faced widespread opposition. So yours is nothing new. President Abraham Lincoln faced resistance to free the slaves but his legacy paved the way for a black President and interracial marriages to be possible in the United States today. Oscar Wilde was persecuted for sexual indecency but his literary works and suffering planted the seeds for tolerance and today England & Wales embraces marriage equality. Galileo Gallilei was sentenced to house arrest by the Catholic Church and promised to no longer commit heresy despite the fact that he was correct: the Sun does not revolve around the Earth. For those of you who don’t see the urgency of addressing gender rights in a holistic fashion (gay rights, right of a child, women’s rights) in unison with the human right to pursue romantic love, then you fail to realize that satisfying one's need to love and be loved is a basic human need according to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Sex is a vital physiological needs just as imperative as food, clean air, water, and shelter while sexual intimacy is crucial to feel a sense of belonging. If your most fundamental needs are not met then what enthusiasm and incentive do you have to climb the pyramid and reach the self-actualizing level where all of us want to reach so that we can reduce the suffering for others and make our lives rich and our nations wealthy? <3 p="">
