Where is the world heading?
Where is the world heading? A relevant question when considering everything that happens and then comparing these events with our human history. Terrorism, war, child labor and slavery, trafficking in human beings, ruthless capitalism, powerful politicians and dictators, political corruption, religion hypocrisy - yes the list can be done long. For my part, the comparison scares me, as it shows and repeats historical events as if nothing is done will lead us straight into continued war, terror, suffering, misery and death.
   Or as UN now describes Syria – Hell on Earth

So let's all now together start a project for a better world where all people on this globe will have equal value and the right to a dignified life - no matter where we live, religion, color, ethnicity.

A philosophy that we all the people on this globe should apply and live on is                                                                                           - the wisdom and philosophy of Native Americans
Around Europe and in the world, racism and hostility is spreading. Many countries in the world are in flames because countries and different groups fight each other in wars allegedly due to religion, despite the fact that the war groups belong to the same fundamental religion. Acts of terror and military coups killing innocent people.
Nearly 60 million people have left and fled their homes in the world to seek protection from war, violence and persecution
According to UNHCR, there have never been so many refugees in the world since World War II. All of this means that large parts of humanity, especially in the western countries, devote ourselves to reality escape like computer games, shop till you drop mentality hysteria and other activities that make it possible to repress what's happening around us.   Type-look after yourself and don´t care about others
Is there any common denominator in all that's happening? The answer is the common denominator
It is not just religion but also giant income and wealth gaps and the fact that communities are struggling which is fuel to the misery we are experiencing now.

The answer that came to light after World War II, was that the triggering factors were spelled GREED and EGOISM. That is the same thing we now see is spreading in our world where income and wealth differences are growing in many countries, and weak groups are made even weaker and are also excluded instead of being included in society.
To today's harder and tougher society, we have people adapted us very quickly. Unfortunately, a larger selfish society has emerged.
Type – Mind your own business  and don´t care about others
What is happening now is driven by selfishness and greed and not for religion or other reasons. That it could like this and that humanity has not learned from the cruel history of mankind is strange. The lesson learned after the end of World War II must get new nutrition if we are to avoid a Third World War. A philosophy humanity should adapt and begin to live after is the philosophy of Native Americans wisdom. Or as  Albert Einstein said:

"Nationalism is an infantile sickness.
It is the measles of the human race."      
”Try not to become a man of success,
but rather try to become a man of value.”

”A human being is part of a whole called by us the universe.”
The world has evolved into a director project with only one purpose - To make permanent the power of the few, over the majority and to exclude the majority's influence over production assets and capital. There, capitalists regulates and control power-makers, dictators and weapons cartels. Within the economy, rational egoism is used to mark the assumption that individuals act to maximize their own interest in a market.

What is happening now in our world should give the vast majority the creeps and think about and realize that we can never allow things to go as far as to a third world war.

Shall the world become a peaceful place, there is only one way - Namely GREED and EGOISM
are replaced by LOVE and SOLIDARITY through a functioning distribution policy.
Therefore, profits from world production must be distributed more fairly than today. A well-fed and prosperous human who see the future with confidence does not focus on war, racism, xenophobia or terrorism. But planning the future for a positive development. What the advocates of neo-liberalism disregarded was that money creates    GREED and EGOISM, and that money only worsens the problems and makes them even deeper.

"The secret to a successful tomorrow is hidden in the decisions we make today"
Human nature - good or evil?

Man is violent. The most blood thirsty animal on this planet. Since ancient times we have been fighting each other in big and small conflicts. Fought thousands of war. Man in today's society has become more and more individualistic and selfish. We will be SOMEONE and as long as this mentality continues, the injustices and class societies will increase, causing great conflicts as a result. Therefore, we need to introduce a completely different mindset and behavior about ourselves and the society in which we live - in order to create a positive change that will involve all mankind.

We talk about: empathy - togetherness - compassion - brotherhood and equality

The classical mortal sins are a compilation of the seven worst human attributes established by Pope Gregory I. They consisted of:

pride, gluttony, lust, laziness, anger, envy, and greed.

Einstein best described the idiocy that characterizes our society:
Man is seen as an essentially selfish egoistic being striving to gain material welfare, power and pleasure for its own part. Unless these selfish drives are governed by external control mechanisms, society is in danger of turning to everyone's war against everyone. If human nature is considered to be destructive, it becomes natural to see control as a central strategy for keeping social conflicts at a manageable level. Hence logically follows a social philosophy that emphasizes the importance of deterring citizens from destructive behavior through state violence monopoly and effective judicial system. From this point of view, it is also natural to see conflicts and conflict management as a matter of power, control, sanctions and judgments.

Everyone could live a safe life. While most people in Sweden and other rich countries live in material prosperity, most of the world's population lives in poverty and millions of children die of starvation. Military armor extinguishes billions, while more and more suffer from illnesses due to poverty and distress.
"This is how it shall be, because it has always been", say those who have power and privileges.
"Thus it is in human nature to benefit itself and to be selfish”, say the same people.
This is how it shall not continue to be. Man is neither born good nor evil, generous or selfish. It is the society we grow up in that affect how we think and act.Therefore, society must change in a direction that develops positive qualities in humans, making them loyal and to each other's fellow player rather than competitors. No one should use someone else's labor and goodwill for his own gain.
Nature must be preserved from the exploitation of resources to the advantage of powerful economic forces. Environmental disasters with acidification of water and contamination of air and soil as a consequence are today a fact in many of the world's cities and villages.

Capitalism is also characterized by the fact that a smaller group of the population, the capitalist class, is getting richer. That class does everything to maintain its economical and political power in society, for example, by owning almost all media. Production is dependent on efforts from the working people. Under capitalism, profits that are created only to some extent are returned back to the workers and society. A large and growing part is retained by the capitalists. Capital gains, loan sharking, banking, slave work. The gap between the poor and the rich has grown a record lot. The eight richest people in the world own the same as the poorest half of the world's population.

The increasing profits generated by the workers should reasonably be used for increased wages, increased welfare, reduced working hours and other, but that is not the case.

Capitalism is contrary to all common sense and leads to crises and distress. The system must be replaced by a new one. Work and food for the day should not remain a wish dream in the poor parts of the world.

As long as there is oppression, as long as capitalism exists, as long as the environment is threatened and people are discriminated against on the grounds of ethnicity and gender -  struggle is required.
Prejudice is a human condition and world history is full of prejudice over the centuries against groups and people who have been exposed and persecuted because of their ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation or other characteristics.

Racism and xenophobia is one of our biggest social problems. Racism are not constant but are directly influenced by how society changes - and it interacts with class and other structures. Therefore, norm criticism and speech about tolerance are not enough to challenge racism and discrimination

The main starting points are the principle of equal value and right of all people. Politicians must give people more power to influence their lives and greater opportunities for the life they desire. In Sweden we have made great progress, but stereotypes and unequal treatment continue and racialism increases. We live in a society where our basic democratic rights appear so obvious that they do not need to be defended and where we take everything for granted and natural. We speak daily about our democratic rights and freedoms, but very rarely about our democratic obligations.

                                                                   Is not democracy about changing something for the better for everyone?
Olof Palme Swedish Prime minister said in speach 1975 that:

"The one who has fully adopted the principle of democratic equality can not then delimit it to certain areas of life"
and that the "democratic rights are not just reserved for a certain layer of society".
                                                                                  NATIVE AMERICAN WISDOM PHILOSOPHY

To get humanity on this globe to begin to live on the philosophies of these Native Americans, is the only option to survive on this planet in a longer perspective                                           where the natural resources and the climate are limited.  

As it is now with our selfish buying - shop till you drop - mentality, we are destroying the planet at an alarming rate. These are some of the words of wisdom that we must accept and follow:

1)  Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our

2)  All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers. The Earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it.

3)  Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and grow.

4)  When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
                                                                                      only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

I do not think the measure of a civilization is how tall its buildings of concrete are, But rather how well its people relate to their environment and fellow man.

6)  Treat the Earth and all that dwell thereon with respect.

7)  Show great respect for your fellow beings. Work together for the benefit of all

8)  Give assistance and kindness wherever needed.

9)  Be truthful and honest at all times.(Especially be truthful and honest with yourself)

10)  Take full responsibility for your actions

11)  We forget and we consider ourselves superior, but we are all part of the Creation

They are equipped with reason and conscience and should act against each other in a spirit of brotherhood
