I said I'll be burning my passports but I'm on the side of Galileo. If they told me to say “The Earth does not revolve around the Sun,” I would say it. When I do, I plan to burn my old passports so as to not get myself in trouble. There, my husband has the opposite view. “If you are to do something, you should do it properly,” he says. “Someone whose life is travel gives up her right to travel, that would make it meaningful.”
I don't know... There is still time anyway. If I knew if it would really be meaningful, if it would change something, I would do it. However, I don't see the point of sacrificing myself. What would have happened if Galileo did not recant? Would the Catholic Church have said “Ah see? Such a prominent scientist did not recant even with our threats, thus the Earth must be revolving around the Sun”?
No. Galileo's life would have been more of a hell unnecessarily, that's all. Galileo took his word back and what happened, did the truth change?
No. Who now believes the Sun revolves around the Earth? Nobody in his right mind does. It took them four hundred years but the Church apologized from Galileo. Of course I hope it won't take that long, one day everybody will see the unfairness, the unjustness of visas and categorizing people according to the geographical boundaries they were born in.
What I want to do
I will be going to every country in the world only to burn my passports even if not a single soul in this world cares about it. Yet, I'm sure there are people out there who care. I consider them as family. I'm curious as to how big a family I have. I would also like to meet my family members.
