Instead what do we find, but a world full of peoples controlled by a predominantly patriarchal
mind-set full of its own importance, doing the wrong things for the wrong reasons.
Baha'u'llah said ... THE EARTH is but ONE country and mankind its citizens.
Robert Pirsig sets out in his book LILA - the Rules of Order which state that ...
No minority has a right to block a majority from conducting
the legal business of the organisation .... but equally ...
No majority has a right to prevent a minority from peacefully
attempting to become the majority.
Today's editorial in The Business entitled
- At last, the family takes centre stage in politics - struck me as somewhat ironic in respect to my CRISIS, CRISIS, CRISIS zblog posted elsewhere - particularly in the context of the increasingly Big Brother style of politics - according to Karl Marx - which we are being subjected to in our still class-ridden United Kingdom - and of course the politics of envy which is now back on the agenda - so to speak.
The Business editorial concluded that - Anyone who doubts that changing the tax and benefits system can tackle family breakdown should look across the Atlantic. While it is well known that the Clinton-Gingrich welfare reforms of 1996 ended the automatic entitlement to benefits and slashed welfare rolls from 12.2m to 4.5m, few in Britain realise that it was also designed to strengthen the family and deter teenage pregnancies.
The shift in the British debate is a positive first step; now our political elite needs to follow words with deeds and move to reverse the catastrophe that is Britain’s family policy.
I can only imagine the free-enterprise version of a similar inter-action of perspectives & opinions being
banded around in the USA at present - in the context of choosing Presidential candidates - but what
must be said - other than the fact that America & the world needs a visionary in the White House - IS
that wherever us zaadzsters are located - AS INDIVIDUALS - none of us should divert our FOCUS from
appropriate to ALL 6.5 billion on earth.
When the many are reduced to ONE - to what is the ONE reduced ?
OR logically an INDIVIDUAL of course - and as Albert Einstein so rightly stated -
Only the individual can think, and thereby create new values for society — nay, even set
up new moral standards to which the life of the community conforms. Without creative,
independently thinking and judging personalities the upward development of society is
as unthinkable as the development of the individual personality without the nourishing
soil of the community. The health of society thus depends quite as much on the
independence of the individuals composing it as on their close political cohesion.
ONLY in UNICITY can WE COMPLY with the LAWS of NATURE
and re-establish a SUSTAINABLE NATURAL ORDER of THINGS
us find our way, in this cosmic soup of choices and beauty."
