Global or local politics

by on 11/08/2018

The right of any nation for any piece of land is derived from the capacity of a group of people to identify themselves as belonging to unique mythology that defines them and their connection to certain piece of land. If the connection of these people to this particular piece of land is strong enough, to make them to be ready to sacrifice their life, in sake of saving this particular piece of land for people, who belong to the same myth, then these people have the full right to own this land. But then what happens when more than one group of people have claim for the same land? They will try to delegitimize the other group by different claims like, who was first, or trying to claim of falsehood of the others identity. They will use ancient texts, believes, fables, fairy tales, myths they believe as if it was a massage from the All Mighty directly to their brains. They will adore the ancient texts, and try to uncover mystery in those texts, interpret them with strong bias to prove their myth being right, and the other’s being a lie. But this conflict cannot be solved by proving the rightness of one claim and denying the other. It only brings claims against claim, not standing by any standard of objective measurement. It can take hundreds or thousand of years and still the same claim will be there. After almost one thousand years the Arabs still accuse the Europeans being crusaders. After more than half century the Africans accuse the White people of being colonialists.

Only complete change of collective mind state can resolve the conflicts of this kind, where truth of one social group collides with the truth of other social group. But does anyone want to change his own state of mind? Does the humanity capacity to such a change. Is modernity with its ideology of hedonism answer to this question? And what is the final aim of humanity? It seems as if segregation and interreflection of the different  cultures is more relevant today than global perspective, comprehending all the cultural, scientific and economic values the humanity successfully accumulated within thousands of years of human civilization.

 

The new political leadership, emphasizing rather local particular issues, while neglecting whole globe, universal problems, as:

  1. Global environment, global warming, and global resources exploitation.
  2. Nuclear war.
  3. New forms of political extremism.
  4. New technologies under development, that eventually will marginalize the task of humanity from the goal to a tool.  

All these problems, that are all at global universal level, don’t get any attention of the political garniture concentrated in local particular interests, even if they are challenging the very basics of human existence.
