AMERICA IS THE EPITOME OF THE GLOBAL FUTURE VISION
People from all backgrounds, cultures, colors and beliefs have sought happiness, the concept of which the god has implanted in all us, even though in many myriad forms along with the many complex instincts and habits – in a place, where it has seemed that it would be possible away from the attritions of the apparitions that have grown to live as parasites on the souls of people - called America.
People have taken to speaking one language, eating similar foods, working on common projects for common goals. They have even re-defined the meaning of happiness in a dynamic manner to mean things they pursue to please them – and have agreed to abide by strict rules for the system to be cherished and survive for their children, while loving the security of a simple future.
Three strikes is a really strong law and it has been accepted without a murmur, so to speak. But now it seems there is the reappearance of the ghosts of times and places past – which are haunting people to the extent they are feeling insecure to the core. There is some warmth in the physical comforts but in itself there is loss of direction.
America has to deal with these ghosts in a more dynamic and adaptable manner so that they remain banished and restrained for all times in the future, while having a strategy to deal with them whenever they rise.
The love of America for centuries now, clearly proves that if the selfishness were to get diminished in individual groups, world would like to become America. It has been striving to be so with all the trade deals, climate agreements, monetary controls, global awards, global investments, internet, TV, music, movies and even dreams.
There is a real possibility, while assessing the resources of the globe, that proper understanding and management can free not only the present 8 Billion but many times more people with satisfaction of most physical and mental needs of the people in a sustainable and simple manner – including allowing them to enjoy their sordid dreams and/ or spirituality.
In this, all we have to learn to practice is to enjoy but not by causing pains to others. The perpetuity of lawlessness and warlike situations should at least teach us this. Cause neither the wounds nor the scars. Heal them. Create better parallel models while encompassing the likelihood of perpetual conflicts.
Can we obtain our future? Is it in our destiny? Even if not, let us put in place what best we can do for an alternative that keeps hoping for some sort of utopia at the individual level - as integrated and defined by the composite and networked, whether communicatively or otherwise, society. We may need an informal UN part of the visible one, governed by all people with these aspirations and the working ethos will have to be properly documented in a legal framework of natural personal justice applying to all, even though the rights in terms what the can be guaranteed to individuals will be more in the form of 'essentials' required for a sane and healthy survival. This should include global disasters management.
Delivery of justice will initially only be tied to the global effort to achieve good balanced rational socio-economic structures, with a hope that uniformity in political diversity can be achieved as in America.
Freedom will mean that a person can survive fairly happily individually or with likeminded people without the fetters of governing social and political compulsions, within the legal framework.
Let not the great philosophers and scientists sacrifices go in vain and their souls be eaten away by the cannibals of the borders and numbers – even though we cannot do without them, at least presently.
