"There is nothing sacred about traditional ignorance.." -Eric/RV
Knowledge of a matter displaces ignorance and fear (lack of knowledge).
Maintaining any traditional practice for no reason other than "tradition-sake" is not very progressive.
A System of Justice should become the new (first?) "African Traditional Religion" of mankind.
A tradition isn't sacred by virtue of its "traditional" practice.
It just might be an incorrect tradition.
Belief in the power of "witchcraft" is traditional. Its superstition. Traditional reaction to it (i.e. kill the witch) is equally superstition.
However, this too is ignorance and non-just.
Make it a point to examine all traditions against the "gold-standard" of Justice.
