Religion is an important cause for alienation. A person belonging to one religion may not feel comfortable with a person belonging to another religion and may feel insecure. Otherwise how can we explain the frequent communal clashes seen in different countries? Neighbours physically Religion and caste make them Aliens mentally
A Tamil poet THIRUVALLUVAR by name has said that one can lie if it leads to some good thing. That means that telling lies for one's own benefit which will hurt others is morally wrong.When people tell lies life is miserable for a few individuals concerned. But when nations lie to one another it leads to large scale sufferings. We don't anticipate that all on earth will speak truth. But speaking truth should be inculcated from early age . Parents should be the starting point. Children should not see their parents lying. The schools become the next most important place for propagating honesty and truth among children.
Mahatma Gandhi of India has said that a soldier is a trained murderer. Wars are inhuman. Killing other people in the name of patriotism, sovereignty etc is a crime committed against humanity. Concepts and philosophies are for the whole humanity. Individual incidents or experiences cannot be generalised. Killing others with weapons either by civilians or military personnel is nothing but a crime. The fanaticism of nationality or such things has no licence to take the life of other human beings. It is barbarism. DNAs should change over time. That is how evolution took place. People who want to be primitive with their little experiences cannot dictate to others.Great minds have always spoken against wars. Political class will not come under this category. Trying to safeguard one's territory is an animal instinct, only animals are known to mark their own territory. More than that territory itself is an undesirable concept. It was neither made by god nor nature.It is purely man made , made by settlers arbitrarily. What sanctity they have to influence people to act in a particular way.
Not willing to change one's attitude towards better things is a dangerous trend. Probably the parenting methods have something to do with this stubbornness of individuals.Let us not call yearning for a better world as utopian. We are living in a sick world.We may not be able to prevent the sickness immediately but the sickness has to be at least treated by some available medicines. The idiotic world, with lot of cowards, will make arms at the cost of people's welfare and find some rationality for using them. Great thinking! People do not see the beauty around because their minds are utterly dirty. Many lead a temporary life throughout. In this real world with firearms in households, sometimes even in children's hands, children coming back from school safely is not guaranteed!
Let us be different from the barbaric early man. Guns were the invention of frightened and devilish minds. People are shot at because of some misunderstanding. May be because of fanaticism of many isms like communalism, castism, language chauvinism etc etc.So the way out of this imbroglio is removing those fanatic ideas. It cannot be remedied by producing guns and missiles as the basic cause for the provocation remains. Let us not shy away from solutions. Let us not be fatalistic in our outlook. Let us try to create a better world by being humanistic. Let the world be devoid of fanaticism of religions, languages, castes and many such isms that create alienation between individuals and the nations. Let us propagate the idea of TRUTH which is the biggest casualty in this world of materialism full of parochial and selfish minds.
16 year olds will not be mature enough to select a right candidate. They will vote for cinema people or some such so called celebrities.Even older people make mistakes in voting. This is reflected in the elections all over the world. The kind of politicians getting elected and the misrule they indulge in is a sad commentary on the electoral system. I have a serious doubt about the suitability of the present type of elections to select the government.Elections without the influence of money and charisma is the need if they are to be useful. In today's democratic elections only dons get elected. In other words, democracy has become a haven for dons. Age may not matter much if we are able to prevent corruption and other malpractices in the elections.
Please give examples for good guy countries and bad guy countries.Countries as a whole cannot be branded that way.In every country there will be good people as well as bad people. In my opinion most countries are ruled by dishonest people who capture power by dishonest means. They are not the ideal representatives of the countries' people. As long as people are not civilized enough, the scenario will remain so. Social movements are needed to change societies for the better.
We are not enemies, we are friends. No matter how strained our passions become, we must not break our bonds of humanity. We are one people on Earth and we must remain one people indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
The reality may be bitter.But we, as civilized societies, should move towards idealism. That should be the goal of any progressive society. Let us not worry much about the past. We never learn lessons from the past and make the same mistake again and again. That is a tragedy.That shows that we don't evolve properly. We must be able make healthy,good decisions based on reality. Pessimism will take us nowhere. The present should be the foundation on which we have to build our future
It is not the failure of socialism, communism or capitalism. It is the failure of people in power.All isms will fail if people are not honest, truthful and humane. Isms will succeed only when human beings develop humane qualities. There is no difference between different isms. Only at the implementation they all fail because people in power are dishonest. Of course the rulers reflect the quality of the people.
