Higher standards of any ADVANCED community are based on ease and pleasure, efficiency and safety, cleanliness and health, love and friendship, cooperation, spirit, community and togetherness. These are the elements of a higher dimensional society, and these are the seeds that we should be demanding be the planks of any government. All parents want to guide, nurture, look after, and protect their children as they grow and mature. Throughout the world there are no exceptions to this reality.
Children who have the opportunity and now, in this dysfunctional society, the privilege to grow up in such a nurturing family go on to achieve great things in their lives. Ask any Nobel Prize winner, great athlete, or great leader that we admire and they all point to their parents and teachers as those who inspired them to achieve the goals they eventually do achieve. It is this very environment we should now demand for our global society. As I pointed out in my article on the myth of scarcity, we can create a “norm” for our global community where such a nurturing environment for the next generation and beyond is a reality. It is simply a matter of equal distribution of wealth and a strong universal desire to make it so.
When you examine the current state of affairs in the world, all of the uncertainty, danger, and suffering is based on greed, power struggles, and hubris of “being special”, whether that is because of station or religion. Really, what is wrong about being equal and equally entitled to being able to achieve what we dream to be or do? It’s a simple question with a simple answer-nothing!
Let’s consider for a moment how we protect our families. We wish no harm to ever really come to ourselves, our loved ones or friends, and we try to ensure this by acting in concert. Our little one gets bullied at school and big brother shows up to stop it. Someone in the family loses their job and they move in with relatives, or at least we all make sure they have food, etc. It is simply what family is all about. Now tell me why we can’t seem to extend this attitude to city, state, country, or global? What are the real barriers? We know what the “created barriers are (artificial borders and religion mostly), but what are the real physical barriers to achieving this goal? It really is just a matter of our mindset.
When one really does a sincere self-reflection on these questions, you are confronted with some self disturbing questions like why is right for my child to have health care, but not the child in Africa? More importantly why do we argue the contrary to that right? Why do we feel entitled, but the family in the ghetto is somehow less entitled to opportunity. The real answer is disturbing because it is an intentional programmed propaganda very subtly administered. By whom and for what purpose is the question. There are two elements to this successful load of crap. One, the real purpose behind it is that it creates the elite, and two, the reality we “buy into it” because we secretly desire and hope someday to be the “elite”. The reality is there wouldn’t be an elite class if the 99% were elite, would it? Get it!
The elements of our world that have caused us so much pain, grief, destruction, destitution, hardship and struggle are not necessarily unavoidable or without purpose. However, these realities should not be permanent in our lives, but instead, a means to achieve a goal. So what is the goal?
As we begin to awake we should realize we are internally and spiritually bound to uphold the ideals, morals and the integrity of our personal efforts and actions which are the vital bloodline through the life of any civilization. There are no civilizations in this universe without means to share information from being to being, from culture to culture, nation to nation or any point on a planet. This world is not unique in its infrastructure of media and communications, this is a surety. What is unique to this world is the level in which the media has been controlled by the elite, this we can also say for a certainty. How many avenues of media and communications are completely contained within a pyramidal structure of power, control, influence and persuasion?
Here is a real place we all can do something to begin developing the society we all have a vision of within our being. We need to start demanding equal time for the good things that are going on all over the world. 99% of the news is doom, gloom, blood and gore, or fame and bling bling. We need to retake control of the “content” of the news. How? Don’t watch what’s on and support any efforts for alternative media. Let sponsors know we don’t like the unbalanced “news” we are now watching. We want the truth about the banking scandals, the corruption of the political process, and the justice system that fails us. We need reporters who have the journalistic integrity to demand of their employers the freedom to report what they find and see. We need commentators that will tell it like it is.
