A world in harmony with nature, with people encouraging each other sincere and serious crimes that happen only occasionally. Well, that wonderful world continues to be an utopia. So many good vibes out there but still too much influence of the bad vibes. So no, we’re not there yet.
You can either have an optimistic view of the world or you put on your dark sunglasses and see all the crimes, the griefs, the sorrows, the inequality. If you are empathic, you can feel the pain, anxious, sadness or whatever of victims of all those negative things. The more you open your eyes for the world’s negativity, the more get confronted with related.
Anyway, for the moment my world’s overview is pretty negative but I remain hope for the best. Why? Because I believe in people. I noticed that a lot of people are in favor of world peace. Unfortunately, most people are just indifferent. Their own happiness is central, a choice that is actually really human. But I do add these people to the box of convincible humans because I believe if they could chose between world peace or not, most people are likely to join ‘the good side’. So in the end, I guess there are more ‘good’ people than ‘bad’ ones. The leftovers, the bad ones, probably have experienced too much hate, drama or negativity in their lives.They are not yet aware that it is better to not let in the evil side that is within all of us.
Bad or good, we all make mistakes. Defeat ignorance and indifference is a real struggle, definitely with such a cunt ass president as Mr. Trump that does nothing to make this world better in the longer term. But the world’s most serious crimes should not be tolerated anymore. Just imagine a world with international laws on human abuse such as torture, paedophalia, gratuitous violence, rape, terrorism… but also on environmental protection, racism and animal abuse. Those are the subjects that really matter, in my opinion.
A friend of mine that is in politics, let’s call him Leo, is in favor of the idea of international laws, he only does not believe in it. According to him there is no such thing as a standard world citizen. As a consequence, it is too difficult to apply certain rules worldwide, he says. From my point of view, it it just a form of democracy. Within every country there are rules that apply to everyone, despite everybody’s different ways of thinking. So I do not see the difference with international laws. Why this would not work out? And as said, if you question every single individual, most are a supporter of less violence, war and hate.
Another friend of mine that is involved in politics, I will call him David, seems to think exactly the same as I do. Although I did not specify my question on international laws regarding topics, he automatically quoted the same issues. That shows that I am not the only one who thinks human rights, animal rights and the environment are really top priority. However, both David and Leo have their doubts about the practical side: which institution would legislate, how will the members vote or propose a law,what about the sovereignty of the participating countries,… I must admit, those practical matters will be the biggest difficulty in this discussion.
David mentions the fact that it is better to start with a select number of countries and see every expansion as a victory. The International Criminal Court in Den Haag is actually a perfect example of an attempt to have an agreement with several countries on serious crimes. Although staying loyal to their signature is not easy; some members even have resigned. So no, it won’t be easy, it will take some time but I believe that in a far future, international laws are a logic and possible solution. Our history learns that new ideas, rules or system scare people. So better to start sooner than later 😉
So I would say… come and join the ‘good club’, or as Trump would say it ‘the best club’. This does not mean you have to be a saint. Being epic at crazy parties, going mad for nothing, go through a bad period in your life,… Those kind of things will ensure you to keep the balance in your life and to grow as a person. Just try to learn from your mistakes, try to do good for people (for your family and beloved ones but also for unknown people) and to do good for the world (perhaps you can combine your dreams with a good charity). You will be part of a positive circle. Planet earth needs you!
Cheers, I’m out for my glass of wine.
