Life should be growing up to become a human being excelling at human values like honesty, integrity, respect for people and for Nature… When looking at some politicians, they seem to be growing down. Growing in the wrong direction.
Politicians often differ so much so as to cause tensions, conflicts and even violence in society. If they focused more on human values instead of on finance and power, society would be more balanced. In the end, everyone would fundamentally be better off.
Working together we win. Fighting each other we vanish.
United we stand to combat injustice, poverty, violence, corruption, discrimination, abuse, pollution, commercial exploitation, tax evasion, selfish lobbying, hypocritical politics, unfair economic practices… Divided we lose. The Romans also applied the principle of divide and rule… Is it not time to put a halt to this kind of manipulation?
When politics are mainly a game about seats and votes, while the common good and common human values are relegated, then politics are seriously ill and a danger to society. Healthy politics have humanity as their core business.
What do conservatives want to conserve? A system that damages the mental and physical health of people and seriously pollutes air, water and soil? If it is conserved, in the end nothing else will be left. This world needs a new system based on solid human values.
When politicians promise change, but will base it on old policies that damage people and hurt Nature, it is not the kind of change that is needed. It is time to change the driver of the economic train so as to stop it from heading towards a ravine. It is time to stop destruction and to build a future based on the respect for all people and for Nature.
Politics are not a game. The life and dignity of people are not to be played with. Politics need leaders with moral strength and integrity worth our confidence. This world needs summonism urgently.
Some leaders seem to think that as long as it is good for business, it is good for everything. Even when it damages people and Nature. A sustainable future needs leaders with a vision (to respect people and Nature), not leaders with money (to mislead people and buy votes).
