In several cities in the world, new 7-star hotels (yes indeed, already seven) are supposed to take luxury to yet a higher level. That is: material luxury based on silver, gold and even platinum. Or materialism to the top. But seven is not the top if we judge by the marketing logic of the modern economy. Well “modern”? It is becoming rather old-fashioned.
Western observers are sent to many countries world-wide to check whether elections are held fairly and openly. Why not send observers to less developed countries to check whether the western companies active there give the local communities a fair share of the cake? Or a fair deal?
Our society is very complicated. It is often unfair and unjust. It often lacks a beacon. Many people get lost in it. They cannot see a beacon. Human values are such a beacon. It makes society strong and people feel they belong.
How can anyone be called a hero
when he killed and maimed innocent people? How can anyone be called a hero when he killed and maimed defenceless children? How can anyone be called a hero when his weapon is terror and destruction? It is easy to be a false hero. But it takes part of your very self to be a true and lasting hero.
So many different political parties.
So many divisions and opinions.
So many conflicts and even wars.
Why are politics so conflicting?
Why are so many politicians driven by money?
Why are so many driven by the lust of power?
Politics are a reflection of our society.
