Regarding the war rhetoric of the mass media and the proclamation of old and new concepts of the enemy I felt the strong wish to send more stimuli of of peace and peaceful visions into world, thoughts about charity and words of peace.
It was Nelson Mandela who indicated, that hate has to be learnt. Thus everybody knows somewhere inside the desire for for peace and the feeling of disgust about war and hate. The mass media and politicians train the people to ignore these feelings and teach strong feelings of hate and violence. The desire and feeling for peace and unity becomes buried under self-doubt, fear and manipulation.
By the means of power games and an economy which is based on exploitation and war, the people are trained with new concepts of enemy and are baited against each other. the willingness of politics to accept war as real means and instrument is alarming.
But for their dirty business, the exports of weapons and the war, often covered as humanitarian aid or „democratisation“ they need the distraction of the masses and the cooperation of parts of the population.
But do educated and free people really want to produce weapons, which are sent in poor and exploited countries, where they kill many innocent people, traumatise, humiliate or murder children or their parents? Does a soldier, who is educated, liberated and freed from the brain-wash of the military go to war to fight against people he does not really know? Does he really for little money and questionable trainings fight, once he sees through the manipulation and realises that he is only used for the benefit of a few?
Prominent and popular people of the past and present knew that peace can never be achieved by violence. In simple and clear words they expressed that peace is a possible reality, that it can be lived, and that only love and non-violence can do something against the hate, violence and war.
Gandhi, Jesus, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King etc. Were these brave men and women only insane dreamers? Or did they change the world and inspire us?
Should we continue to listen to the warmongers in politics, economy and mass media, or should we rather listen to the charismatic and wise men, whom we admire?
Beginning with the distribution of wisdom about peace, let us send out positive, loving and peaceful thoughts and messages to touch the hearts of the people.
