The founding fathers (despite setting US up WITH this BS & rigged system from the get-go) had a very PROPHETIC statement, that is proving more and more true EVERYDAY **IN & OUT of politics!**
“UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL”
We have been divided by issues continually, simply by having an US & THEM (dem vs. rep, white vs. black, civilized folk vs. natives/”savages”, churched vs NON, upper class vs. lower class, and countless other methods divisiveness) MINDSET for FAR TOO LONG.
If we would just look at each other as HUMANS who need to cooperate with each other and our environment, we would be in a FAR BETTER position than we currently find ourselves in!
WE AS A WHOLE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS FRENZY. STOP BLAMING EACH OTHER AND TAKE ON THE BLAME OURSELVES.
each one of us have thought/said/done things that have divided us, FAR MORE THAN ONCE in our lifetime.
THE SECOND we propose or WORSE, BELIEVE IN the idea/concept that “Someone else ISN’T AS ______ (good, kind, intelligent, cultured -use any adjective here) as WE ARE,
THAT IS WHEN WE STARTED OUR REAL TROUBLES.
And SADLY, that has gone on LONG before recorded history. it started as a way to determine WHO was SAFE and WHO was NOT. Which served us well WAY BACK THEN. BUT the problem is that as we became smarter and evolved, OUR CONCEPT OF OTHERS DIDN’T (at least not as much as it should’ve given our intellectual and social advancements)
Darwin’s research and studies DID NOT push the concept of ‘Survival of the fittest’,
**those IN POWER found that portion of his study to be beneficial to them to describe “Our HUMAN NATURE” therefore telling us that WE ARE “selfish by nature”.**
His research really majorly indicates that species CAN, DO and MUST work together cooperatively to achieve success and THRIVING over SURVIVING.
THOSE IN POWER conveniently left that info out.
and they controlled the information at that time as a majority did not have the basic skills to access that knowledge.
BUT NOW we have no excuse. We have massive amounts of INFORMATION at our fingertips (albeit, too much to decipher and filter fact from fiction- especially with so much purposeful fiction presented as fact), most of us can read. WE NEED TO EDUCATE OURSELVES. I know it is hard, (I myself have 4 kids, part-time work, part-time college) but try your best. THEY are counting on our ignorance. Don’t give it to them.
In interest of NOT supporting the ideas of US vs. THEM, I do believe that THEY can be educated. But we must first remove/reduce the corruption that taints the thoughts of us humans.
AFTER ALL, WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.
WE SHARE THE SAME ROCK, SO WHY ARE WE JACK-HAMMERING IT APART JUST SO WE CAN HAVE A BIGGER PIECE, OF SOMETHING THAT IS ENOUGH FOR ALL OF US. THE SIMPLE ACT OF DIVIDING IT UP,
CAUSES LESS OF IT TO DIVIDE.
LARGE PROPORTIONS OF A ROCK DIVIDED, TURN TO DUST.
A ROCK UNITED (never chipped away at) REMAINS WHOLE AND NOTHING IS LOST TO THE DIVISION.
I HOPE WE LEARN THIS SOON ENOUGH TO SAVE EACH OTHER, THEREIN SAVING OURSELVES AS WELL
