Once, there were world wars and everything revolved around them. Life and death, future and present—in short, everything. I still remember a time—because I grew up in post-war Belarus—when all were imbued with memories of the last war, everything were reminders of the war. Everything that surrounded us: destroyed buildings, mass graves, woods filled with live shells. Two thirds of my relatives were killed, burned in the death camps… And politicians spoke only about the victory and our post-war development. We thought: more of this will never happen again. It seemed that now the world would seek only peace.
But it was not long that it became clear that we were wrong. It turned out that the world seeks war. Humanity provokes, incites, and successfully brings conflicts. Only the strategy has changed. Instead of one big war, there are many small ones.
If it is possible, not in America, Europe, or Russia, but somewhere, let’s say, in the “underbelly,” in the Middle East, Asia, or Africa?
“Let them kill each other, but not in my garden.” This is a current-day approach. Just to move the conflicts and their severity as far away as possible. Iraq, Yemen, Syria, and Somalia conflicts are constantly “heated up.” Let them fight, beat, cut each other, but not here. You can even allow a small nuclear war, but again, in restricted regional “boundaries.”
Why is this happening? Because there are too many “extra mouths.” No where to put the masses of people, the development of whom no one favors.
The labor of millions of people is replaced by machines, reduced production as the giant does not need anyone. Unemployment reaches 40%. On the street are able-bodied young people who do not know where to … They are extra. Without work, the unit of employment, there is no purpose in life, no future … They are all uncontrollable, neglected, and so—dangerous.
The crisis is growing, and the leaders see the only way to preserve the power: the sacrifice of the “unnecessary.”
So go to war. Who makes the decision to fight? Small “cabinets”! Theses naïve “grandmasters” believe they govern the history of humanity.
But they don’t control anything. Look: the boomerang returns; Europe has already got into the trap. It is overwhelmed by immigrants from Third World countries. Islam is taking over. Democracy is unable to sustain Islam. Afrrican Americans are awakening America. They, too, are not “lulled” by tales of equality.
What will happen? Why is this “crazy” scenario unfolding? And who exactly is unfolding it?
The answer, as usual, is simple. And it seems that this time we have to acknowledge our helplessness in front of nature. The laws of nature rule the masses and the notorious “grandmasters” in their small offices. To understand this fact, we need a different logic: the logic of integral and global peace.
We need to understand that the world has changed irrevocably. And the crisis, which is unfolding before us, is not another crisis—it is the birth pangs of an entirely new phase. The system of relations in humanity has jumped to a new level—single, global, interconnected … And we are all trying to control with the old, linear power. And so everything collapses, out of control …
Yes, the world has completed a circle; humanity turned into one whole. In spite of all the wars and conflicts, we are inseparably joined by common economics, cultures. and even geographically since modern technologies made our planet “a small village.” Any disaster effects each one of us. On one hand, we are included in one global system; on the other hand, we resist the global law—and yet, it is useless to resist this global law…
What can be done? We can only study this law and acknowledging that we are interconnected, and being to move towards each other. There is nothing else we can do. Only then will we realize that rising above contradictions is quite possible. Only then we’ll see that there are no “unnecessary mouths” and that every single person is needed. Only then, we will stop throwing “unnecessary” people into the furnaces of war and begin to study this new system of relationships. To the extent that we even go back to school and study a new type of global, integral communication.
What and how should we study? We’ll talk about it in our future posts.
