Divide et impera - Divide and rule
Goethe made a counterproposal: Unite and Lead!
We let ourselves become categorized into nations, religions, whatever ... and then happily take up the conflicts that others create for us, defending
"our" opinion to death.
Ok, one part of the solution surely is to get rid of those creating these conflicts and "taking away the second bowl".
But ... it may well be that we still stay friends with each other when we discuss topics with differing opinions, especially when we talk amongst
people we know and meet regulary. But when it comes to taking decisions, let's say about distributing something, using funds for something, then
conflicts break up that have their root in very personal convictions that have little to do with The Powers That Be but with our own inability to act
on a higher level.
So, I don't know what has to happen to get rid of the individual xenophobia, homophobia, whateverphobia that is so prevalent in human psychology.
It will not be enough to have a worldwide revolution, an inner revolution has to happen as well.
There would surely be many people in Spain for example that would happily help to bring down their government and still argue that it is a great
tradition to kill bulls in Torrero-shows.
Or what about some more controversial topics? Death penalty for an example - in my understanding of the "fifth dimension planet earth" there is no
place for that - do you all agree? I doubt it.
Or on a lighter note: There are people that love to walk around naked in the mountains. I am sure they will get into not only discussions about that
even after the whole armada of Messiahs came back.
How do we solve all this?
I think one piece of the solution would be to bring the level of wealth to a more balacanced status wordwide. Narrowing down the differences of daily
life. Some fight for a cup of clean water a day, others are loosing nerves because the profit margin of their $ 1 Million investments went down 1%.
Once we are one the same page many problems will stop to be. That of course sound a little socialist, although I respect private property. I think we
should limit poverty and wealth and live in a worldwide common economic corridor.
