Big Corporations Don't Care About Other People's Faith, Why do We??

I was just browsing through ideas and I see an advertisement for this website www.muslima.com it's "The Worlds Largest International Muslim Matrimonial Website".  Yet to get us in to a war the president tells the individuals of America that most muslims are terrorists and we have to stop them now.  But he goes behind our backs and talks to his VP Dick Cheney about how this war will help Haliburton, and how much oil profits they will get.  You see what I've been trying to say about how all a political or religious figure has to say is that something is wrong with them and their "fanatical" religious ways and the masses of people get scared, while the smart and clever people think dollar signs and more power.


So why do we really care so much about what everyone else believes in?  Is it for better understanding of another individual?  Because to me that's not better understanding of that individual because mainstream religions have incorporated spiritual beliefs and franchised them out.  Of course some of the faithful in these mainstream religions do take a lot of personal consideration in to every piece of the bible and I believe that's nice.

Or do we care about what they believe in so we can try and convert them in to our corporation?

By "our" I was talking as if I were a person belonging to a mainstream religion, remember I don't want to label myself ;)

Are we all multiple personalities of universal consciousness?

Bernardo Kastrup proposes a new ontology he calls “idealism” built on panpsychism, the idea that everything in the universe contains consciousness. He solves problems with this philosophy by adding a new suggestion: The universal mind has dissociative identity disorder.

There’s a reason they call it the “hard problem.” Consciousness: Where is it? What is it? No one single perspective seems to be able to answer all the questions we have about consciousness. Now Bernardo Kastrup thinks he’s found one. He calls his ontology idealism, and according to idealism, all of us and all we perceive are manifestations of something very much like a cosmic-scale dissociative identity disorder (DID). He suggests there’s an all-encompassing universe-wide consciousness, it has multiple personalities, and we’re them.
