A World of Savages

We will never know peace in the world without balance. And we will never know balance without justice for all. Yet, justice exists only where there is fairness and equality -- when every man and country is treated and viewed equally. My father believes that there is no such thing as justice because all his life he has witnessed the tipping of the scales. We must change this widespread mentality by making equality a reality, not just something we read and hear about on the TV and in literature.

How so?

First, no country should be given power over another. In addition, no country should be granted privileges that are denied to others. No one country has the authority to decide which country will be embargoed, denied to protect itself, and will be favored based on the weight of their resources. Eliminate the hypocrisy.

Second, no one man should be viewed as having more to offer the world than the other. We are all equals and every human being has something of value in their composition which makes them unique such as every country has their own unique resources to share with the world. Never discount somebody based on material wealth, true wealth is what cannot be seen. Never discount a country by what they can't provide your country, while their resources may benefit other lands in need.

Third, we need to eliminate the concept of division: by class, skills, race, income, and nationality. Every human requires food and water to survive. Every man has a dream. Every man suffers and every man loves. We are all equal. Period.

Fourth, pay no attention to pop culture for it is what poisons our minds and divides our children. Without pop culture, we wouldn't have unrealistic icons to compare ourselves to that also thwart our perceptions and standards. They are the modern day animal gods. The real role models our children, friends and families need are all around them if they look hard enough - not on TV. Materialism leads to selfishness and egotism. Eliminate all of it. It is the plague of Big Business.

Fifth, globalization is pushing our societies forward into the future before their time. Globalization also annihilates ma and pa shops, the independents, and contributes to mass waste and mass consumption. They create unfair competition in the marketplace and soon the world will only be dominated by big chains and crappy franchises. This is a severe imbalance that needs to be controlled. Stand up against Big Business. Support independents and small businesses.

Sixth, the imbalance in our ozone is poisoning the energy grid that surrounds our planet. Our environment is being forced to consume more than it can handle. The greed of man and Big Business is wiping away our forests and trees. And it is trees that we need to clean our air.

All these imbalances are going to lead the world to its ultimate destruction and once again, we will be driven into another Dark Age. Yet this time, this new dark era will be flooded by ignorant, selfish mass-consumption savages. I see it already happening all around us and it is evidently corrupting our youth. The Dark Age is approaching fast and no one man is going to stop it. Put down your remote controls and take initiative.

THINK. Spread the message. But first, eliminate the hypocrisy.

A good leader leads with compassion and love, not fear and blood. A country that harms its people because they are not happy with the leader - is not a country that belongs to the people, but to the leader. And a man who tells you to follow him will turn his followers into his company, while a true leader who does not tell you to follow him, will sit in the company of his followers.

Unite. Unity is a beast in itself. If a wolf sees two little boys playing in the woods on one side, and a big strong man on the other, he will go to the one who stands alone.
