There is so much that is uncertain about the future of mankind although it is safe to assume one thing for sure. If we continue down the path we are
currently on. Then the events to come certainly won’t be pleasant. We currently live in a world where even in those countries that are considered
to be at the forefront of human development (the so called westernised countries). Many of the citizens of said country worry about basic things such
as walking down the street at night. Crime is rife and at a point now where it is beyond the control of those that govern.
On a larger scale, one of people’s biggest fears currently is the terrorist threat. Although the powers that be claim to be at war with these
terrorists. Just like the war on drugs, this war is one that cannot ever be truly won. If anything, the war on terrorism is even more unviable than
the war on drugs. This is mainly due to the fact that for every terrorist that is killed, another two will come along to take their place. In the
case of capturing leaders of terrorist organisations this can be multiplied exponentially, as you have to take into account the ‘martyr’ factor.
Diplomacy is not a tool that is understood by fanatics.
The next big problem is religion, although I do not consider myself a particularly religious person and certainly not one who follows any particular
faith. I do still see the need for religion in today’s world. If you take the bible for what it is, then you can see that it incorporates a basic
set of morals and principles to guide people through life. It does not and should not matter who wrote the book and whether or not it came from
divine inspiration. What does matter is that it is apparent to all that the guidelines set down by the bible on how one should go through life are
pretty solid and good. This being said, they are still subject to the biggest flaw that faces mankind and that is men and more recently women
themselves. As with all texts they are open to interpretation and this tends to benefit those that are in control of the text. Down the ages mankind
has used these texts to start wars against each other and to justify betraying those very principles that they are supposedly fighting for.
100 years ago, while still deadly. They were never really a threat to mankind as a race. This changed though with the advent of global
communications and weapons of mass destruction. We are now reaching a point where religious fanatics can kill tens of thousands in a matter of
minutes. Where they will be able to freely communicate over any distance and distribute weapons capable of maiming and killing without any real fear
of capture. It is without doubt the biggest threat we as a race have ever faced and it is a war we cannot hope to win unless we take dramatic
When you look around at all the different conspiracy theories that exist today. Many of them have a common theme. This is that the end is coming and
it is coming soon. This is not to say that we will be wiped out, but more that change is coming and this change is going to be extraordinary in the
form it takes. Some say that a race or races of beings that come from the stars are coming to take over the world. Others say the opposite and that
they are here to help us through the next transition of humanity. There are those that believe we are on a path to total annihilation caused by
weapons of our own making. Then there are people that the planet itself will bring about the end to humanity, through extreme global warming or freak
changes in the planet itself, the magnetic poles flipping is a good example of this. One thing is for sure, even if none of these are true, we cannot
just continue to walk down the path we are currently treading. There is no future at the end of it. If we do, then one day and one day in the not to
distant future, Something will happen to bring about the end of humanity as we know it. Technology is still advancing at an exponential rate and it
will not take long for someone, somewhere to come up with a way to destroy the lives of many, find a way to distribute it and have the courage of
conviction to use it. This is not something that might happen, but rather an event that inevitably will happen.
Ever since I was a young adult, able to look at and recognise what was going on in the world today. I have always believed that the road we took
would have to change if we were to truly have a future. I also saw the need to change the way the planet is governed. For us to truly move forwards
we need to stop looking at other and see the face of the enemy just because they were born across a man made border. The only possible way to achieve
this is to remove those borders from the equation. So we no longer need look jealously on at others who are far better off just because they were
born in a different part of the world. We need to get to a point where all people irrespective of colour, sex or religion have the same basic human
rights. Where everyone is given an equal chance to prove their worth. This is something that can never happen while national borders still exist.
One of the many current theories is that of an organisation of people, whose primary goal is to bring about a change that comes close to what I have
described above. There are many theories that go into the motives of this organisation and most of them are not good. However there are also just as
many that see these people as having the best interests of all people at heart. Which side is true no one really knows, we cannot even say for sure
whether such a group of people really exist. At this point it is just a lot of conjecture based on comments and conjecture. However if there is to
be a major change in the way we develop as a species it will take something as radical as this idea to move forwards. Whether or not it will happen
is something that only time will tell, but my own personal hope is that something along these lines will take place and is brought about in such a
manner that brings equality for all. My fear is that even if it does take place, that the controlling factor will be the one that has dominated man
since we first started to walk on this planet and that is power.
If I was asked which of these two scenarios do I think is more likely to happen, I think I would have to say it was the former of the two. Most of
those that are supposedly involved in the make up of this New World Order organisation come from countries where freedom is relished. Countries that
are democratic in their nature. It only seems logical to me that if this were to happen, the principles that would guide this transition would be the
ones that have guided these people through life. It also seems logical that they would recognise the fact that every time someone has tried to force
rulership on a large group of people has eventually failed in this task. When something that goes completely against the grain of our basic beliefs
happens, we rise up against it. It is far to risky for them to assume that they can create a ‘World Police Force’ overnight that is willing to go
round exterminating people for crimes which didn’t exist yesterday.
If something like this happened 200 years ago, I could maybe accept it. But too many people worldwide now value what freedoms they have and will rise
up and fight to maintain these freedoms. It also seems like a realistic assumption that for this to take place a fairly large group of people would
need to be aware of these plans (perhaps even several hundred) before they were implemented. If the destruction of the majority of the human race was
on the cards, I cannot believe that someone somewhere wouldn’t blow the whistle so to speak, before the events occurred. You are talking about more
than a weight on someone’s shoulders here. Therefore its foundations have to be set in a way that all those involved and ‘in the know’ believe
what is going to happen is truly the right way forwards for all.
