better world

I believe in Humanity

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.

Immigration – Part 1. A different perspective about immigrants

I truly believe a different perspective about immigrants is required. In the last years, immigration has been part of many political campaigns, used for the sake of creating fear and separation in the masses. It has been one of the major point in the last Italian election and has been part of daily news in the US following the latest comment of President Trump. immigration is one of the most important socio economic challenges of our days. As many other important issues, the ignorance demonstrated by the masses is mainly fueled by empty propaganda promoted by the media. Refelecting a very limited and twisted perspective of a complicated reality that require immediate attention and actions.

The massage of the media and politicians is clear, immigration is bad and need to be stopped immediately.  The word “immigration” has been connected to terms as violence, economic instability, loss of job for the local population, sexual abuse, poverty and deculturalisation. While all these issues are indeed part of the western countries problems, explaining to the people that immigration is the cause for it, is just wrong and dangerous as it is untrue.

It is indeed true that there are some immigrants that are taking part in violent acts and sexual abuse, but it is a minority of individuals out of a crowd of good people. In the reality, in each group of population there is always a minority that is problematic. Letting these few reflect the all group is wrong in any cases, immigrants or not.

The general propaganda that spread fear of the new and the different is not new. It has been used by the west for hundreds of years. It has been one of the major justifications for the majority of our recent wars, has been the leading philosophy of nationalism and has been part of the core reason for the Christian crusades. It is easy to hate what one does not understand and it is even easier to ignore what one does not like to see. Which does make the problem less relevant or the hatred more justified.

For the sake of addressing the subject of immigration fairly and seriously, there is a few points that are important to establish. We all know these points, but like to forget or ignore them:

  • Immigrants are people just like you. They are humans, with feelings, families, hopes and dreams.
  • The definition of immigration just refer to a specific person which used to live somewhere else.
  • The classification of a person as immigrant is based on political agreement, borders and the laws of the period. (in Europe, an Italian moving to Germany used to be called an immigrant before the creation of the European union. A Canadian moving to the US is not considered an immigrant. A person moving from New York to LA will not be consider an immigrant while a Mexican will).
  • These people who decide to migrate are in the majority of the cases, motivated people that wants to work and create themselves and their families a better life.
  • The reason for immigration in many cases, is based on a reality of war and starvation in the country of origin.

In my next post, I will talk specifically about immigration from Africa and the need of western  countries to bring immigrant for the sake of their survival. For now it is important to remember, Immigration is a topic attached to fear and hate, only due to ignorance and twisted propaganda. Open your mind to the reality around you before choosing to hate and fear what you don’t understand. It will make your life better and the world a better place.

Open your mind and join our movement.
