Treat Ye Others as Ye Would Have Others … Treat Thee (IV)

The Golden Rule or the ethic of reciprocity is a maxim, ethical code or
morality that essentially states either of the following: One should treat
others as you would like others to treat oneself, OR,
one should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated.

The Golden Rule can be found in the early contributions of Confucianism,
but the concept’s framework appears prominently in many religions,
including Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism,
and the rest of the world’s major religions.

That’s quite a pedigree, as maxims go. Ergo, ought not a learning-impaired
humanity adopt it as the more secular-friendly and simplified
equivalent of an ethical code or morality, more than enough, sufficiently dignified
to bring hope … to this fractious status quo … disordered.

“Treat others as you would Have others treat thee.” The Golden Rule; seemingly,
near perfect … for a learning-impaired … humanity.
“Treat others as you would Have others treat thee.” A short phrase that pithily
captures the spirit of Him … who created thee.

For brothers’ keepers in this fractious status quo, piecemeal peace, is no answer;
but the late great Nelson Mandela’s visionary model may yet deliver
us from the more or less continuous anarchy … that seemingly … ever and ever,
haunts humanity. But what’s good for the goose … is good for the gander.

And, if indeed, what’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.
then why not a GLOBAL Truth and Reconciliation … consider?
For indeed, for brothers’ keepers, piecemeal peace, is no answer;
Nelson’s legacy is the power, to forgive and forget … to live … together.

Nelson Mandela’s Legacy: Alchemy

but the late great Nelson Mandela’s visionary model may yet deliver
us from the more or less continuous anarchy … that seemingly … ever and ever,
haunts humanity. But what’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.

That’s to say that South Africa’s improbable social and political experiment may be
successful as well on that larger stage that is planetary … in scope;
just like an off-Broadway show that goes on to Broadway … however improbably.
The proof is in the pudding … and its main ingredient … is hope.

And, if indeed, it turns out that what’s good for the goose, is good for the gander,
then why NOT a global Truth and Reconciliation … consider?
For indeed, for brothers’ keepers, piecemeal peace, is no answer;
Nelson’s legacy’s … the power … to forgive and forget … and to live … together.

For verily, what could be more alchemical than that, that exponentially
builds atop the efforts of those whom have built a foundation?
What human experience better exemplifies the human spirit than the legacy
of Nelson Mandela’s model of Truth and … Reconciliation?

History, the Status Quo and Prophesy (III)

The Balkanization of Pangaea reflects many thousands of years of hostilities
and countless rivers of bloodshed … too much of it … unnecessarily.

Allah/God/Jehovah/Yahweh’s people are all of us notwithstanding that some of us
feel that they, and they only … enjoy … a ‘most favored’ … status.

Ever more disagreeably disagreeing in this tragi-comic ‘reality’, The Big Three,
Muslims, Christians and Jews … may yet reconsider … albeit … belatedly.

But history, the status quo and prophesy mitigate mightily against the possibility
of plurality … coming to the rescue of a sovereign-based … humanity.

The rise to notoriety of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State and the Caliphate
via a magnetic attraction for disaffected misogynists … raises … stakes.

Alas, we homo sapiens (we auto-denominated ‘wise’ (wo)men), are, all too sadly
a seemingly … supremely stupid … and specious … species.

On the other hand, we have the keys to our cells (and our brains) in our hands.
The internet … and a world-wide web … will help us … to understand.

The internet … and a world-wide web … will help us … to understand. Surreally
though, webs and nets, however strong, shall yield to prophesy … eventually.
