Feeling insecure In communal world, webs man Safety net of wealth
Religion is an important cause for alienation. A person belonging to one religion may not feel comfortable with a person belonging to another religion and may feel insecure. Otherwise how can we explain the frequent communal clashes seen in different countries?
Religion and caste make them
Not suffice to print The word truth in dictionaries Write it in the hearts
A Tamil poet THIRUVALLUVAR by name has said that one can lie if it leads to some good thing. That means that telling lies for one's own benefit which will hurt others is morally wrong.When people tell lies life is miserable for a few individuals concerned. But when nations lie to one another it leads to large scale sufferings.
We don't anticipate that all on earth will speak truth. But speaking truth should be inculcated from early age . Parents should be the starting point. Children should not see their parents lying. The schools become the next most important place for propagating honesty and truth among children.
Honesty is strength. So use of arms is but a sign of cowardice
the world is not always a nice place--because of people like you
Mahatma Gandhi of India has said that a soldier is a trained murderer. Wars are inhuman. Killing other people in the name of patriotism, sovereignty etc is a crime committed against humanity. Concepts and philosophies are for the whole humanity. Individual incidents or experiences cannot be generalised. Killing others with weapons either by civilians or military personnel is nothing but a crime. The fanaticism of nationality or such things has no licence to take the life of other human beings. It is barbarism.
DNAs should change over time. That is how evolution took place. People who want to be primitive with their little experiences cannot dictate to others.Great minds have always spoken against wars. Political class will not come under this category. Trying to safeguard one's territory is an animal instinct, only animals are known to mark their own territory. More than that territory itself is an undesirable concept. It was neither made by god nor nature.It is purely man made , made by settlers arbitrarily. What sanctity they have to influence people to act in a particular way.
Not willing to change one's attitude towards better things is a dangerous trend.
Probably the parenting methods have something to do with this stubbornness of individuals.Let us not call yearning for a better world as utopian. We are living in a sick world.We may not be able to prevent the sickness immediately but the sickness has to be at least treated by some available medicines.
The idiotic world, with lot of cowards, will make arms at the cost of people's welfare and find some rationality for using them. Great thinking!
People do not see the beauty around because their minds are utterly dirty. Many lead a temporary life throughout. In this real world with firearms in households, sometimes even in children's hands, children coming back from school safely is not guaranteed!
Let us be different from the barbaric early man.
Guns were the invention of frightened and devilish minds. People are shot at because of some misunderstanding. May be because of fanaticism of many isms like communalism, castism, language chauvinism etc etc.So the way out of this imbroglio is removing those fanatic ideas. It cannot be remedied by producing guns and missiles as the basic cause for the provocation remains. Let us not shy away from solutions. Let us not be fatalistic in our outlook. Let us try to create a better world by being humanistic. Let the world be devoid of fanaticism of religions, languages, castes and many such isms that create alienation between individuals and the nations. Let us propagate the idea of TRUTH which is the biggest casualty in this world of materialism full of parochial and selfish minds.
Voting At Age 16 Is Stupid - Amirite?
16 year olds will not be mature enough to select a right candidate. They will vote for cinema people or some such so called celebrities.Even older people make mistakes in voting. This is reflected in the elections all over the world. The kind of politicians getting elected and the misrule they indulge in is a sad commentary on the electoral system. I have a serious doubt about the suitability of the present type of elections to select the government.Elections without the influence of money and charisma is the need if they are to be useful. In today's democratic elections only dons get elected. In other words, democracy has become a haven for dons. Age may not matter much if we are able to prevent corruption and other malpractices in the elections.
We are not enemies, we are friends. No matter how strained our passions become, we must not break our bonds of humanity. We are one people on Earth and we must remain one people indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Because that alone can bring peace on earth
Is it right to make sports and games professions? They are actually meant for recreation and fitness
Please give examples for good guy countries and bad guy countries.Countries as a whole cannot be branded that way.In every country there will be good people as well as bad people. In my opinion most countries are ruled by dishonest people who capture power by dishonest means. They are not the ideal representatives of the countries' people. As long as people are not civilized enough, the scenario will remain so. Social movements are needed to change societies for the better.
The reality may be bitter.But we, as civilized societies, should move towards idealism. That should be the goal of any progressive society. Let us not worry much about the past. We never learn lessons from the past and make the same mistake again and again. That is a tragedy.That shows that we don't evolve properly. We must be able make healthy,good decisions based on reality. Pessimism will take us nowhere. The present should be the foundation on which we have to build our future
Socialism is the answer to Capitalism rite?
It is not the failure of socialism, communism or capitalism. It is the failure of people in power.All isms will fail if people are not honest, truthful and humane. Isms will succeed only when human beings develop humane qualities. There is no difference between different isms. Only at the implementation they all fail because people in power are dishonest. Of course the rulers reflect the quality of the people.
“What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”
Distinguishing is OK.But discriminating is inhuman.
What role can a youth play in changing his/her country's dying education system?
The stage of youth is volatile and they are in the process of learning.They simply follow the existing customs and habits.Therefore elders should set good examples for the youth to emulate.
Your ideology is that of the leaders/dictators of N. Korea, Iran etc....We live a big world pal, with many countries in this world having dictators who have the same exact beliefs as you do, so just emigrate to those countries, INSTEAD of you trying to change the USA into your vision of how you think we all should live our lives in a FREE country.
It's really this simple pal, if you as a USA citizen do not like/agree with all this entertainment stuff(lol) in our great country, just simply migrate to a country that has your same beliefs of how YOU want to live your life, INSTEAD of you complaining about the USA and wanting to change the USA/America into YOUR f'd up vision/version of an AmeriKa you want to live in.
Both sets of my grandparents were LEGAL immigrants, where all 4 left their home country's of Sicily and Ireland as teenagers to take the long journey(each one ALONE on that boat) to come to the USA for a better future life than the life they were living as teenagers in Sicily and Ireland back then.....to ASSIMILATE as AMERICANS and to raise their future children as AMERICANS as well, not coming to our great country to change our great country, as you liberals want to...JUST LEAVE already if you don't like living in our great country.
All the countries of the world are interdependent. No country can survive without other countries' cooperation. Let us love all people.My opinions do not have anything to do with America. You are thinking as if you are the sole representative of America. Let common sense prevail over the parochial mindset of people like you. Have some broad minded thinking and think of other people also as contributors to world prosperity and well being.Let us live a life of civilised human beings
What do you think about the head transplant surgery that was supposed to be done this December? Do you have any hopes for it?
Shortage of organs for everyone--Organs are not commodities available in the market, please understand.
As already pointed out sports and games are recreational activities meant to improve physical fitness. Only a misguided society which wants entertainment more than anything else will convert even sports into entertainment!
The views expressed are not communist ideology but a humanistic view. The so called free society cannot understand this basic philosophy.
Whether it is a communist country or a democratic dispensation, training kids to become great athletes in future is a terrible wrong doing. Physical fitness needs only simple exercises and not sophisticated gadgets and play area. Let us spend the hard earned money gainfully and let us not waste it in the so called entertainment
Living donors do have some real risk. Kidney donors loose one kidney and face the prospects of serious problem if the one kidney gets affected. Also corruption is reported in kidney transplants, doctors colluding with racketeers. The prognosis also cannot be said to be that significant. Also the poor cannot afford the procedure.
Transplant surgeries are unethical medical practice. The only ethical transplant surgeries that can be done are the corneal transplant and the blood transfusion which do not affect the donors. All other transplants affect the donors in some way or the other. Besides they are attendant with other social issues like corruption. Only the surgeons who venture into this kind of surgical feats become popular. Society needs to enact some legislation to control this misadventures.
There are two kinds of Sports when it comes to that! People can choose which way they want it.
Glorifying sports persons and the sports is responsible for taking it as profession.Youth find it a shortcut not only to stardom but also to a rich life. Youngsters who cannot contribute to the society and thereby earn their livelihood in the ways others do, resort to this field. What is the contribution of sports to the society? Professions are created to serve humanity. What service these sports persons as professionals do to the society? Their records at the national or international level are empty rhetoric which are nothing but paper records with no benefit to the society in any way. The beneficiaries are sports persons themselves and not the society. The money spent on these activities are a terrible splurging costing the people dearly. A responsible society should know its priority.
Social media has taken over in America to such an extreme that to get my own kids to look back a week in their history is a miracle, let alone 100 years.
The harmful effects of the Tablets, computers etc in children should be highlighted adequately. The teaching is community is business like and the schools are business ventures interested only in showing academic results and in amassing wealth by impressing gullible parents.Let us understand that education is not just career guidance but it should build conscience in the kids
Mean people talk about individuals; ordinary people discuss incidents and events;High level people discuss principles and philosophies- A great Chinese proverb
When we say people we mean their minds only. It simply does not mean that great minds do not talk about other people. But the mean people cannot think of anything other than their own interest. The world is so narrow for such people. The proverb simply talks about the narrow mindedness of the mean and the ordinary categories.
Let us not talk of women's year or men's year. The right candidates whether women or men should get the opportunities. Creating another ism is not going to solve the issues confronting the world.
If you could use one word to describe the best moment of your life, what would it be?
Who has heard of gentrifying?
What is gentrifying?
