I AM SURE LIKE ME YOU CAN RATTLE OFF HUNDREDS OF REASONS.
But the world is that what humans have made out of it.
Five centuries of European colonialism and global culture-trashing, and the remaking of the world in the economic interests of competing empires, cannot be undone by a single institution and a cluster of lofty ideals.
The world, as it now exists, was largely shaped by the colonial powers, which divided the world among themselves, carving out states without any consideration for existing ethnic, religious or cultural realities.
And after the colonial era collapsed, these carved-out political entities, defining swatches of territory without any history of national identity, suddenly became the Third World and floundered in disarray.
It was inevitable that to keep these artificial countries alive, and avoid their disintegration, strongmen would be needed to cover the void left by the colonial powers. The rules of democracy were used only to reach power, with very few exceptions.
Values and ideas which were considered universal, such as cooperation, mutual aid, international social justice and peace as an encompassing paradigm are also becoming irrelevant.
Whatever noble attempts at eliminating war the powers that be made in the wake of World War II — Europe’s near self-annihilation — didn’t cut nearly deep enough.
These attempts didn’t set about undoing five centuries of colonial conquest and genocide. They didn’t cut deeper than national interest. If something grows too big, then it destroys itself from the inside.
The existing problem with the EU as shown by the recent English Referendum. Attempts to create regional or international alliances to bring stability have always been stymied by national interests.
But why is it like this? Why are humans using their capacity of higher intelligence so negatively?
Perhaps it is because the human race in its state of development and as a whole, is still nearer to the animal behavior than to advanced capabilities.
Just look at the choice of the next President of the USA governed by Money.
The problem with the United Nations is that it’s a unity of entities defined by their hatred of one another and committed to the perpetuation of “the scourge of war.
Is it because Capitalism has not taken care of our fellow human beings?
We have become consumer and have lost the instinct to take care of our fellow human beings?
There is one part of the population who have overweight and are sick because of too much food and an other part who are starving to death, often living one beside the other.
Just look at the current refugee crises.
Instead of setting up properly manned entry points we allow people smugglers to pray on the vulnerable, close borders, and watch people drowning. A sure recipe for terrorism.
How can we find a way out of the mess?
Obviously religious and spiritual rules made up by humans doesn’t protect humanity from being distinguished.
Our ” way of life” our behavior, our goals and values are making is blind, are confusing us and driving us more and more into disease and depression.
There are people calling for a solution.
They are expecting help from their authorities, they expect to be healed by doctors or they ask for help and solutions from their government. What an illusion!
As long as they are dependent and not capable to look through the game of this world, they will not be able to make decisions for themselves. They will stay in dependency, manipulated from the more clever…
There’s always money to wage war and build weapons.
The recent Vote by 300 odd English MP to renew Trident.
The contractors are adept at playing the game. Jobs link arms with fear and patriotism and the next war is always inevitable. And it’s always necessary, because we’ve created a world of perpetual — and well-armed — instability.
While on the other hand we have out of date world organisations that beg for funds.
We won’t begin creating global peace until we learn how to bypass nationalism and the single, unacknowledged agreement binding nation-states to each other: the inevitability of war.
We are left with the two greatest international enemies – the environment and the global economy – unfortunately we are so selfish – so naive – we do not want to face the reality of what we have done to the planet and each other in the name of progress. We are in denial. We are addicted to antisocial behavior – propelled by fear.
All our problems are as a result of our moral and ethical collapse and only finding and using a simple international moral and social code of love and cooperation will enable us to survive and save us from ourselves. We are not talking about religion here. Morality and ethics existed before religion and it is that version of them that we want and need.
We can accept that one can be proud of one’s country and support its activities and ideals without feeling the need to bomb or subvert the country next door. The only people who would seriously disagree are psychotics and psychopaths or their minions. For example, governments.
To allude to globalisation is idiotic without capping Greed and reversing Inequality.
We now live in a world of technologically based society. Information is power and money. This is why we are all being Googlefied, Twittered to feed the Internet of Everything.
We only can expect that help will show up, when we start to help ourselves!
As the human race keeps on making steps in technology & science, the Smart Phone is the Pandora box of the future. Re shaping the World.
Science has made huge steps, society has not.
Society is crucial to the well-being of all of us.We need to open the doors to new exciting boundaries.
Here are my top six.
Improve Education World wide. Eliminate Racism. Resource Efficiency.Eliminate Hunger.Environmental awareness.Overcome Religion.
To achieve any of the above needs funding by placing a world aid commission of 0.05% on all activities that are for profit sake only.
On all High frequency trading, on all Foreign Exchange transactions over 20,000 dollars, on all Sovereign wealth funds acquisitions. on all Lotto wins over a 1 million.
This would create a perpetual fund from Capitalism greed to address the world’s inequality.
