[GMW #3074] No Toleration For Nations' Armies Of Killers

[GMW #3074] No Toleration For Nations' Armies Of Killers

Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 3500

~ Idea 3468 ~
I will never cease wondering how the supposedly most advanced, intelligent species on planet Earth, humanity, can take such contradictory, opposed stands on the following:

- on the one hand consider the killing of a human being by another as the highest conceivable crime, take innumerable measures to prevent it and punish it most severely including by a death penalty.

- on the other hand tolerate that its territorial subdivisions called nations arm themselves with the most horrible weapons capable of destroying all life on Earth, to have entire armies of killers who are congratulated, honored, medaled and remembered as heroes in history.

What would we say if we found in the universe another planet with a species doing that?

Kindness In An Age of Connected Disconnection
Years ago, we didn't have to try so hard to stay connected. People lived in neighborhoods, and there weren't many strangers that didn't ultimately become friends. We watched over one another with relationships built upon a foundation of shared interdependence, ensuring plenty of kindness to go around. Sadly though, through our own scientific progress, we now live in an age of 'connected disconnection.' Even the most basic of needs are provided by faceless entities. But, at what cost? Read on to learn of the direct correlation between kindness and personal connection. { read more }

Be The Change
Try to bring awareness to those moments of disconnectedness. Or, alternately, why not designate an hour of your day to go 'hands free' instead?
