When looking at politics, it looks more like a kindergarten these days than as a forum where serious new ideas are discussed among adults.
In the political kindergarten, real issues are overshadowed by bickering about who will be the next one to lead or about who will have the most power or material riches.
All kinds of tactics seem to be allowed to win the favour of the public or voters, even if this involves personal attacks and inflating petty facts.
Politics today are largely dependent on economics, that have created an unbalanced system that leaves out many people and that makes the fate of others subject to the decisions of economic powerhouses – often excelling at egocentrism.
After so many decades of capitalism that was heralded as the system that could not be beaten, we still do not have a world to be proud of.
So, it seems more than logical to ask why this system is still being promoted as the ideal one. Is it promoted by the economic powerhouses that are well-protected and that think they are living in a different world? Are many politicians their mere marionettes?
We live in a world that is mainly run by economics and not by politics. And that is proving to be disastrous with so many people still living in poverty and with Nature suffering and not being treated properly.
Money being the main or often sole objective of economics, the world has become a predator on Nature and also hostile to ever more people.
It is about time to stop the bickering about petty facts and to start the discussion of a common policy for all political parties and for all economic powerhouses alike.
If the world continues to be a predator on Nature and if it continues to put money before people, there will soon be no more need for any leader – be it in politics or in economics.
There has been much talk about a sustainable future, but when drastic decisions need to be taken, the brainwashing power of money becomes so clear and visible. The change needed does not really happen.
It is time to leave the kindergarten. It is time to put people and Nature first. It is time to create a forum to discuss how to balance politics and economics to the benefit of the entire world and Nature. It is time to create a new socio-economic political system based on humanity or human values. A system that knows no boundaries of race, country, culture, political preference, religion or non-religion. Danellandia calls it summonism, a system aimed at attaining the summum bonum or supreme good by maximally applying human values.
It is time to leave the kindergarten and to stop the bickering. It is time to leave capitapolitics (politics driven by money). It is time to really start building a sustainable future.
Danellandia was created on 28 March, 2004. It is based on discussions about this world and its many problems with people from different backgrounds, countries, religions and ages.
Danellandia defined 25 human values as the basis for its campaign to make this world a better and more just place in many fields of human activities: politics, economics, the media, personal relationships, education, Nature care…
You can help to promote these values by sharing the material on this site.
Become a Danellandian of friend of Peace by promoting human values to boost peace.
This world needs people and leaders that put humanity first and not money or power. People and leaders that unite instead of creating tensions, divisions and conflicts.
Strong human values are a passport to a sustainable future.
