Peace on Terror: Master-Plan Earth.

December 8, 2015

Peace on Terror: Master-Plan Earth.

The current war on terror will not end peacefully ever; only efficient non-violent means will bring satisfactory results.

We all have ideas about how our world should be like, what it should look like for us to be happy. But, because such our ideas are usually different from each other, and because of that we all pursue different goals, we never end up with what we truly want, because we try to reconcile our ideas in real life, usually without much success, creating–in real life–real damage.

We have the means whereby we can start designing and a world in which today’s enemies would live in true peace with each other. What needs to be done is to reconcile our ideas before we start doing so (as we normally do) in real life, causing real damages. It would not be necessary to have individuals to present their ideas and those ideas to be judged not by the quality of the ideas about what our peaceful coexistence should be, but, rather, by who the contributers of those ideas are; all that would be needed is to present the ideas themselves, and evaluate those ideas on their own viability.

To reconcile our ideas before we start doing so in real life (causing real damages), in order to come up with a vision of an ideal world that would be agreeable to everyone (not just the majority) , we can use any and all means available– round-table talks, models (ala SL and any such similar), etc.

Once we know what it would be like for all of us to live in peace, we could start finding ways of achieving a world that we all would like to live in, we would start implementing those ways, and, eventually, we would stop fighting against what we do not want to have in our lives, and focus on what we would like to have in our world.

If we, the people, were really sincere about having real Peace in the world, we would pursue creating Peace by effective peaceful means more actively, rather than relying on our military might!

Marx’s XI Thesis on Feuerbach is Not Explicit Enough.

June 13, 2013

“XI
Philosophers have only interpreted the world in different ways. What is crucial, however, is to change it.”

(Theses on Feuerbach by Karl Marx, translated by Carl Manchester: en.wikisource.org/wiki/Theses_on_Feuerbach )

The world should be changed; but to what should it be changed? If we don’t know what the world should be changed to, we’ll continue to change it in the same way we have been doing since times immemorial, and the world will continue to be changed according to the short-sighted visions of those who happen to be at the helm at the whichever time at what-so-ever place.

I think that Marx’s XI thesis on Feuerbach is not explicit enough–Marx should have explained what he thought the world should be changed to. We try to change the world to our liking with most of our actions, but so far the results have been a transformation of the world from bad to worse, on the whole.

A meaningful change is being desired; Any odd change will not do! In order to change the world in a truly meaningful way, we, all who share this world, have to come to an agreement about what the desired world should look like; We have to re-design the world first–then we can change it meaningfully.

Designing Lasting Peace

March 10, 2008

DESIGNING A LASTING PEACE.

Knowing that every time of peace in human history ended in a war, what should “Peace on Earth” look like, so it would not result in a war again?

Unless we can answer this question, and unless we can unify and the eventual answers in order to prevent any discrepancies in the answers to cause strife in real life all over again, we can never achieve real “Peace on Earth”.

We should learn how to imagine, in as much detail as possible, what would constitute a real “Peace on Earth”, and then, since we each have different concepts of the idea, we should learn how to constructively reconcile all the differences in a model (or any other expedient way, e. g. in “gedanken experiments”, meditations, “think tanks”, etc.) in order to arrive at a unified design of “Peace on Earth”, because the Earth can possibly have only one future.

Unifying of all the different ideas that we might have about the future of the Earth in a model would prevent conflicts from happening in real life, since, after all, wars happen because people go to war so that Peace happens their way.

The idea of modeling the future of the Earth is also presented, in more detail, at
http://www.modelearth.org/modelearth.html

MEDITATION:
Find, or imagine that there is, a mental space in which all the ideas of what anyone might think that their future should look like would be reconciled with each other, so that conflicts in real life would be prevented from occurring.
