Many people have called me naive, but I believe in humanity. As part of promoting the ideas and my writings, I take me time to actively engage people into conversations concerning our society and its future. Many times people has explained me, that there is no hope for people and humanity as we all have some “bad” inside of us or that we don’t care enough.
It is true that at this point of our history, it is easy to arrive to such conclusions. The news papers and the media are constantly bombing us with negative information, exposing the horror and down side of our kind. Politician are corrupted, cooperation and capitalists are pursuing their self interest and many bad actions do not get punished. All these are reflecting a social problem, not a human one.
Our society is degrading, losing its needed inspiration and its positive role models. Our education, lacking innovation and budget, is bent toward values of materialism and individualism imposed by the need of our dyeing economy. Without any doubts, our social values and communities are in desperate times. Nevertheless, it does not mean in any way that humans do not have the capacity and will to change and create a better future. We always had it within us and we always will.
Part of the process of evolution requires a natural process of trial and error. As part of this process, it is inevitable that some mistakes and bad turn will be made. It is only by admitting those mistake and correcting them, that we will be able to move forward toward a more positive course of evolution. As it looks these days, it is time to admit our mistakes.
As I mentioned in previous posts, I believe the majority of the people on this planet would prefer living in peace and prosperity with their families and the people they love around them. They just don’t know how similar their feeling are to the people around them. It is a complicated feeling of loneliness and lack of belief in our neighbors, that bring us to act as we do. We need to believe in our kind and in our neighbor, if we want to start to work on creating ourselves a better world.
The development of the last decades has change every aspect of the human existence. It is the first time we have the capacity to communicate and understand each other on a global scale. We have access to information and knowledge, needed to surpass the doctrine of power and separation promoted by the small group of self interest called our elite. There will always be a small group that will search to promote ignorance and fear by overusing violence and terror. Now that we can share a bigger awareness, it is time we stop letting these groups dictate how we see the world and start working and changing it for the better.
As I wrote in my book:
“There will always be a minority who act against the “common good.” These people hold a different set of beliefs, and should be always considered as such. As we are entering a new “global era,” it’s important to understand that we are as similar as we are different….”
“…The unification of humanity under one sets of values isn’t required for the creation a better world. Instead, we must accept humans regardless of their differences and similarities, their belief in the majority of humans create a better future, and their willingness to oppress and ignore the minorities that try to separate us with violence and fear. We’re all part of this planet, and we’re all sometimes good and sometimes bad. The majority of people on this planet prefer to live peacefully in their homes and raise families while belonging to a constructive society, knowing they’re part of something bigger than themselves. We are all indeed part of something bigger than ourselves; it is called humanity.”
I believe in humanity and I’m not naive. The seed of positive change lay in our willingness to believe in each other and fight to prove it every day. We have a long way to go. It is the knowledge that together we can create a better world that will give rise to the leader needed a this complicated time.
