Re: A Movement for Social Change
How basic an idea - that every human life is equal - and yet society seems to have such difficulty grasping it. How sad. I blame a super competitive culture that has permeated our homes, schools, governments and society and has created a world where we care little for others and are only concerned with making sure we (either ourselves personally, our team or our country) come out on top. Only when that competitive culture is replaced by one of co-operation, kindness, compassion and caring will we see a world which values every human life. It starts in every home. Begin by recognizing ALL the activities your children are involved in that are competition based, where "beating, crushing and slaughtering" the opposition are considered good things. Try and involve your children and your family in more co-operation based activities. Water the seeds of compassion in your family and be amazed by what grows.
