No. You have either deliberately misunderstood my statements, or genuinely missed their true meaning? People are not going to save the human race from
itself, only an 'idea' can do that. A noble ideology that is powerful and attractive enough to change people's mindsets on their identities and
differences and merge them into a global understanding and acceptance that we are all ultimately human beings. That national identity and racial or
creed differences are fault lines of conflict, and while they remain in-situ, they imperil us all.
I did neither deliberately misunderstood your statement nor missed their meaning. Wasn't it you yourself who stated that "this new world order will
save us from ourselves"? You are talking about the very same people who don't care about people's liberties, or opinions and would rather have their
own opinions and views be forced on everyone else. These are the same people who are deliberately putting poison in vaccines, and forcing millions of
people to undergo botched operations and other anti-fertility treatments in their attempts to lower the population to levels that they can more easily
control. It is not possible for this same people to save us from ourselves. Not in the least.
As for our differences? That's what makes us HUMAN, the fact that we all are different, have different ideas, different views, and different goals.
You are talking about having everyone accept just one view "for the good of all". In essence to destroy individuality for "the common good". This
is something that has been done and tried many times and ALWAYS the worst dictatorships the world has ever seen form from this type of mindset.
Dictatorships which cause nothing but suffering, and death "in the name of the common good of all".
Great advances have never come about from "conformism" or from everyone having the same mindset. It has been because of our different ideas,
different cultures, different views and goals which have allowed us to achieve "great advancements" in technology, medicine, etc, etc.
When societies have tried to enforce the same type of mindset on entire populations, individualism and creativity have been subjugated and no real
advancements have come from such societies.
What people need to understand is to accept the fact that we are all different, and will continue to be different. Accepting this fact and respecting
the "differences in people" will allow us to achieve greater advances. Forcing one particular mindset will only set us back to time periods in which
"the elite" always though they knew what is best for everyone else, and how people should live.
I can't tell you how any other alien races in other planets have been able to advance. I don't have any contact with any of them and can't just
assume one way or the other. What I can tell you is that your way has been tried many times before on Earth and it has always ended the same way.
The suppression of having different ideas, views, opinions, and goals only suppress creativity and individualism which are essential not only for
personal advance, but for the advancement of new ideas and technologies. What people need is to understand and accept that we are all different and
no one should ever try to make or force an individual to be something else they are not.
