World no doubt is turning into a Global Village but there is a vital question we must ask ourselves that are we really prepared for the challenges it brings in its wake. Let’s not forget this #globalization in reality is a byproduct of the #advancement achieved by mankind. However a big question is that are we going to misuse this gift like we did with the knowledge we attained through scientific development about #energy, the discovery known as E = mc square, that colossal amount of energy can be produced from mere an atom. We all are a witness to this grave reality that latter on we really could not harness this great source of energy for betterment of #humanity and on the contrary this became a big threat to the very existence of us all, as today it looks we all are sitting in a world which is no less than an atomic bomb. If we have forgotten #Hiroshima and Nagasaki Fukushima is not an old incident.
However this is not the topic we intend discussing here, instead what we want to highlight is the repercussions of such advancements which is but natural and is worth being proud of, only if we could convert it all for the benefit of all, the common good of humanity. Therefore as we step into this unavoidable globalization, there is a dire need for developing special acumen full of such higher dimensions of intellectual capacities which alone can harness the hidden potentials of this gift of advancement, able to build the true sense of compassion and empathy, so ardently required to ensure peace in this changing world. Unfortunately with the passage of time we are coming across new ideologies like the New World Orders and cliche like the “clash of civilization” which instead of ensuring harmony in a world are posing dangerous threats, not letting this world really become one safe Global Village, a home for all. Unfortunately, on the contrary it is resulting into a hazardous culture fragmenting society; instead of bridging the gaps is creating more gulfs.
As we are encountering this unique world first time since the very inception of civilization, again as a byproduct of the same process of advancement, what we ardently need now is to understand the dynamics of this development and prepare ourselves for this change and develop new strategies, not to conquer any more but to foster deep sense of fraternity in the community now living in this new world, with emphasis on how to live and let live. Let’s be careful this time, before this new advancement gets out of our hands and proves to be more dangerous than the last advancement we have talked about in the very beginning, the discovery of energy. If due care and acumen is exercised this time the resultant energy coming out of a natural human advancement can be judiciously turned into positive synergy to serve humanity and not become a threat to its very existence.
However last but not the least this miracle is only possible the day humanity can find ways to get closer, a possibility again thanks to the scientific advancement is available through proliferation of communication but for this most important factor we need to realize is that people at the helms of the affairs from the time immemorial do not want the common man to be free. Unfortunately their propaganda always is to make people hate each other so that they could fight battles for continuing their rules. Now how do we counter this is the key to salvation of mankind. Day we are no more sheep in the hands of our so called masters only then can we think of a world full of peace.
A sincere, judicious and a combined effort is required by us all to look for and utilize to the maximum the innumerable common links existing amongst humanity and curb all such phenomenon creating hatred amongst us, now as a global family. Such exploitation is natural from the people who are only interested to divide us on trivial matters just to justify following their nefarious policies, so dangerous for the very survival of us all as humanity.
As all wise people learn from the mistakes of others needless to say only fools learn from their own mistakes; by the way for which it looks the time too is not available. Therefore in order to elaborate the main point we are drawing the attention of all our august readers; let’s learn from the last words of a man who faced death as a result of war crimes. There are colossal amount of details, however the crux of what he said before facing gallows at Nuremberg are worth learning a lot from, if we call ourselves wise.
“Naturally the common people don’t want war. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders, this is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.” (Hermann Goering, Hitler’s Reich Marshal at the Nuremberg trials after WW II.)
By the way a vital point to note here is that the ideology pointed out by Hermann Goering is still followed without an iota of change all over the world, but let’s not forget the change we have to envisage for a more peaceful and a safer world is no more a choice but a necessity now as we are no more divided into mere pieces of lands, we are but one single Global Family. Therefore it has become a necessity of the time that the younger generation be taught from the beginning such ideologies as part of their curriculum which foster love for all irrespective of cast, color and creed. How all we can achieve this arduous task, we leave this challenge for the experts to come forward and do the brain storming to work out strategies to ensure we meet this challenge and produce a more cohesive and unified humanity by addressing the challenge and educating the coming generation free of prejudice we elders have lived since ages.
