We Need a Global Political Reboot
All languages have a specific word for peace, and yet among most people, the very word peace is seen solely as 'the absence of war'...
Why is that so?
Why does it all start in kindergarten with preferences about who we like, and who we dislike? Why don't we stop this trend, and try to go in a different direction, so we can again appreciate all people - regardless of politics, race, political ideals, sexual preferences, visual appearance, hair color etc?
Our planet could be so different if we gave this some careful thought!
We NEED that global political reboot, yet no one seems ready to start the process by beginning to appreciate everybody in his or her surroundings regardless of the above differences. When some of us try to achieve this, we are often categorized as somewhat naïve and skepticism seems to be the order of the day.
We need change - we need a new way. It is the way of peace that so many are unwilling to achieve. Let the process begin by each of us being part of the solution instead of part of the problem...
