Eternal Peace Vs Peace Between People

Hallo Members

It has been a while. We as thinking beings, are only able to achieve peace amongst ourselves. Those who claim otherwise, have to prove their statements. It is in the best interest of humanity.

You Shall Not Steal!!!

Today is the day. It is workers day in SA. May today be the day that people all over the globe take a honest and real look at their attitude towards the have nots and vulnerable. Why do we have a poor majority in all countries?



Is the golden rule not what you put in you get out? How does a civil society justify taking everything from those who have nothing but their two hands and two feet to contribute.



Who's error is this? The general level of the masses?

Thanks to all the mothers, daughters and little girls for your contribution in a too violant and chauvinistic…

%REASON & PEACE&??

Dear friends and family

A few thoughts to be shared with you today:

Word games are destructive. Become the generation who serve and have no expectation to be served by another. Do as much as you can yourself first before delegating it to others. Life on the planet will only change through the continued efforts of authentic human beings. We are all more than any one culture or tradition. Remember therefore who you are at your core.

You "bee" at…

NO MEANS NO!

To The Gang: The answer is no - NEVER! Be at peace and the world will become a happier, safer more enjoyable place. Stop bullying people who do not believe in your empty promises or bedtime stories.

Accept that we are in the 21st century and new better ways of living are open to all. No domination or crusades applicable any longer.

If you want cyber peace, let it begin with you first. Good advice - be a genuine friend, not a predator or salesperson. We all have freedom of…

Pure Enjoyment OR Pure Foolishness

An ant asked the echo of a dinosaur: "Why do you eco around the same mountain year after year if there are so many other mountains around you?"

The dinosaur answered: "This is what the ancient dinosaurs programmed me to do".

?: Is the black ink on the white paper more important than the tears on the cheeks of a little girl who just lost her entire family because a dinosaur is fighting for tomorrows oil?

Who do you choose to be: the dinosaur-echo or the ant?

LIFE IS THE WINNER

Winners don't talk. Being alive makes us all winners. It is best to keep ones' eyes, ears and heart open and keep ones' mouth closed. We are all original designs. Behind each design one will find love. Love for others, self and life. Never consider yourself lesser or greater than any other for then you loose bigtime.

Don't compromise on the quality of your services, products or leadership. The big bad wolf is only full of air. Life only changes…

Freedom To Not Be Religious

Please allow me to remind everybody that people have the legal right to choose to not be religious and that discrimination because of this is unlawfull and unethical too.

Our human family are made up of many different groups of people. We all exist because of a Higher Divine Intelligence no matter how we reason about this. Our differences are not the key factors. One group isn't more important than the next. Neither the majorities or the minorities.

This is a friendly request…

A Quote For Today

Cornel West wrote: "Of course, the aim of a constitutional democracy is to safeguard the rights of the minority and avoid the tyranny of the majority."

Alone But With Integrity

Integrity is tested most when one must stand alone against those who oppose that which you believe to be your purpose in life. If one look around at the global world one strive to connect to those who live with 100% integrity and those who cannot be corrupted by money, power, status or food. It is good to see that these leaders are well and objective.

Let us keep standing for the greater good of humanity as a global family.

How to promote peace - thoughts of a trainee

Who will rule this world in the end? Many proclaim that they are promoters of peace and democracy??? The facts disagree. Peace will rule only once freedom of the most vulnerable member of society is protected by the rich and powerful around them.

 

Who will then commit to this mammoth task? Is it not only those who are peace themselves already. Those in whom no fear or violance dwell? There is a teaching that teach that like properties unite to survive and transform into that…

Carnegie Council

The Individual & the Collective, Politics, & the UN, with Jean-Marie Guéhenno

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?

A Russian Take on the Kurds and U.S. Foreign Policy

A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev connects this characterization to the need for leaders to connect a specific policy action to a larger, understandable narrative for the American public.

The Struggle for Recognition in International Relations, with Michelle Murray

How can established powers manage the peaceful rise of new great powers? Bard's Michelle Murray offers a new answer to this perennial question, arguing that power transitions are principally social phenomena whereby rising powers struggle to obtain recognition as world powers. How can this framework help us to understand the economic and military rivalry between United States and China?
