“War seldom enters but where wealth allures.”

– John Dryden

(1631-1700)

English poet

The entire human race shall be focused like a laser on soon to be held debates in the House of Representatives and Senate of the United States of America.

The matter which lawmakers will contend with in the debate is war and peace on this Earth. President Barack Obama has decided to let the elected representatives of the people of America share their thoughts with the citizens of the country, and the citizens of the world, on whether the United States government should declare war and take military action against the country and government of Syria.

The whole world is watching.

Yes, the whole world is watching, and researching, trying to find the truth, the real facts on what has occurred. Millions of men and women have gone beyond the situation in Syria to consider the entire set of reasons for wars and killing. All over this Earth people are asking the important questions: “what is the real cause of wars?” and “why are these people fighting each other?” and “how can we solve the differences between parties to war and establish peace?”

People all over the world in every country are coming to seriously look at the conditions on Earth, while wondering what could be done to improve chances for peace, which lead to wars and violence-the deaths, refugees and incalculable suffering man has caused his fellow-man.

Men, women and children from every region on Earth are having thoughts about possible, new ways of doing business which will lead to agreement among humanity. Agreement to terms and conditions of a contract which guarantees that wars and violence never erupt again.

People everywhere are wondering why wars and violence are still in existence here in the year 2013. They are wondering how the time is not long past since humanity finally decided to move from the insane practice of human beings hurting and killing one another, to friendship and brotherhood and concern for the health and well-being of all people.

The whole world is listening.

All people are listening for messages of hope and the nobler purpose of humanity for this generation. They are waiting for the truth of the causes of war, why humans murder other humans, and solutions to end the barbaric practice now and forever. Because the human race has seen enough of war and wants no more.

They are listening for true visionary orations which drive to the heart of the war and peace matter. They are hoping for the most eloquent and most profound words ever delivered to the people of the United States, and the entire population of this shared planet. Oratory which literally changes the course of history.

Because human beings’ lives are in the balance.

Not for this generation alone, but for generations to come. September 2013 will go down in history as the time when the future of the human race and all life-forms on Earth was envisaged and determined.

Will mankind choose the tragic, historical route where military actions, organized murder, are taken to settle differences between groups and entities-a continuance of the false belief that people are separate from each other, one nation is separate from another, one powerful group of people is separate from another powerful group of people?

Or will mankind choose and create a new way forward, where it is understood that all people are one, with the same hopes and dreams? Where there are no more boundaries between nations because the Creator of all life never placed any on Earth. Where the first choice is making the effort to understand and talk with each other to resolve differences. Where there is a desire to work together in love, brotherhood and friendship to create a good and better world for the children not yet born.

To create a world of true beauty.

    1. William,
      How are you. “It may be a few thousand years or more” I am curious to know why you are not optimistic. Can you share your reasoning and do you have some previously unreported facts or information which has led you to feel this way?
      If I’m not mistaken you are in England. Did the recent no vote on military action there increase your optimism somewhat?
      Thanks for your input,
      Jerry

      1. Hi Jerry, I have no special insight so take my comments for the random musings of an ordinary guy. I am not optimistic on the Syrian conflict for both macro and micro reasons. For micro reasons, I live in the U.S. and our President and government (in coordination with Arab allies) essentially backed themselves into a corner where not taking military action will be perceived as “weak”. That is one thing that the President (primarily for political reasons) can not be seen as. Congress won’t do anything. It has abandoned its institutional responsibilities to declare or not declare war decades ago and the internal dynamics are not enough for a vote to stop military action. Republicans do not like the President, but they do not want to be perceived as “weak” either. The President still has enough political capital to get most of the Democrats behind him.

        On the macro level, humanity is still a very violent and tribal species. We are unique among living species in our violence towards other members. Going back to the very origins of our species, there were likely other advanced hominoid species around approximately 200,000 years Homo Sapiens came into being. There is strong evidence that we killed them off. Within our species we treat our identity as part of an in-group based on family connections, ethnicity, religion, etc. and treat those outside our group as less worthy of respect, leading to war. As a species, we have not yet internalized our deep interconnection and oneness of humanity. I believe we are making progress but we have a long ways to go.

        Longer term, I am very optimistic we will get there eventually. I believe in the vision of Teilhard de Chardin (the inspiration for my blog) that humanity is ultimately evolving towards an Omega Point of ultimately unity. That end result may take millions of years. However, we will continue to make strides towards that goal (with setbacks along the way). The ability to communicate instantly with people around the world is a big step towards creating a nascent Noosphere which will help humanity recognize its deep interconnection.

        Peace,
        W. Ockham

        1. William,
          I appreciate your comment. I was heartened to read your words saying that “longer term, I am very optimistic” then sunk when you said “may take millions of years”. Perhaps we as humans underestimate what is occurring now as it relates to an awakening of humanity. The Omega Point that Mr. deChardin felt was the endpoint of human evolution has been thought about by millions of people, thanks to the instant communication of people around the world you mention. One could give deserved credit to those engineers who have created the technology, which is amazing. Perhaps the internet is a divine gift and blessing from the Creator/God however one conceives the Supreme. A thought came to mind of the personal accounts of those who have had a near-death-experience, who describe the ability to travel at the speed of thought. They want to go to a place seen as very far away and are instantaneously there. Because the internet allows you and I to instantaneously communicate, your thoughts are transported from where you are physically to where I am physically, hence my thinking which views this platform as a God-given tool for reaching the Omega Point. It would have been interesting to have Mr. deChardin here to get his views now!
          Maybe I look at the world through rose colored glasses but I believe the Omega Point, what could be described as Heaven on Earth, is going to occur much sooner than people estimate. I base my belief on the fact that love and oneness is the rational, obvious choice for human beings. Because we tend to be overeducated, to the point where solutions to mankind’s problems which are not complex are discounted, we overlook the simple solution of love. We see this all the time in virtually every form of communications. Millions of people are talking about the tragic situation in Syria, with right concern for the people who live there. We must ask ourselves why, out of all those millions of discussions, there are so very few which mention love for your brothers and sisters as the solution. It is astonishing that such a seemingly simple solution (it is the solution)is seen as not practical because it is not complex.
          Thank you,
          Jerry

          1. Hi Jerry, I hope you are correct. Although I am very optimistic long-term due to the influence of Teilhard de Chardin, short-term I have been strongly influenced by Chris Hedges who has covered war zones for two decades. The various current conflicts in the Middle East make me believe humanity has a long ways to go (which we will ultimately get to). The West does not have any moral superiority either, evidenced by the U.S. actions over the last 12 years.

            1. William,
              Perhaps looking at war and killing as a disease of mankind and compare to a single human being with a disease would be helpful. When we as humans are stricken with a disease we go to see a doctor to diagnose and treat it. War-humans killing their fellow humans-is a disease which needs to be diagnosed, the cause of the disease must be identified and then treated in order to heal. I think it is fair to say that wars’ genesis, the cause of wars, is as Woodrow Wilson rightly pointed out-commercial and industrial rivalry. Those involved in commerce and industry from every country must come to some type of fair and equitable agreement that shares resources on this Earth. Those who communicate the cause of the disease of war are doing a great service for humanity because they are diagnosing the disease, an unavoidable first step to treatment and healing. Another potent example is the alcoholic who denies, denies, demies until that point where he or she admits that, yes, I am an alcoholic. There is no difference between an individual’s approach to disease, treatment and healing and humanity as a whole, but scale. One senses now that the world has come to the end of denial and admits that war is a disease that needs treatment and healing.
              Thank you,

  1. I am not optimistic about the outcome of the congressional vote because of the recent history involving Iraq. Also, although we are a relatively young nation, we have an abysmal record when it comes to preferring peaceful means of resolving problems, issues or what have you over war. We have always chosen war. This country was founded on war. It took a war to end slavery. And just take a look at the battles and skirmishes that have been fought in this country; mostly over land.

    1. Shelby,
      How are you. I am willing to go way, way out on a limb and bet you a nickel that the Congress will vote down as was the case in Britain. Both you and William are pessimistic but I believe the lawmakers will make the sane, rational decision. At risk of sounding over-optimistic, the world will be astonished in the best way by what transpires in the days ahead. This is the hope of most people on Earth: peace. So be it.
      Thank you,

      1. Dear Jerry, your pragmatism is showing if you’re only willing to bet a nickel. I wouldn’t even take you up on that bet as it would be too much like taking candy from a baby. But be that as it may, this upcoming ‘debate’ in congress is just for show. It has already been decided that military action will commence against Syria. The only question is when. I don’t like it any more than you do, but there it is, my friend.

          All we can do is pray for peace and wise voices to come forward and be heard. Go to as many blogs as possible and rally the people for peace. Just saw on TV the woman who swam the distance (Florida-Cuba) and she said “Never give up”. Time now for all bloggers to focus on peace with all their God-given strength and creativity, while urging all their readers to do the same.
          Thank you,

    “Mankind” is not voting or choosing here, it has already been demonstrated that mankind votes ‘no’ to war. Rather mankind is the victim that must live with the consequences of war. War has always been planned by the people that control the Money, the very worst scum of the earth. Until they become a major part of the debate and dealt with as the criminals they are, the cause of mankind’s suffering will not be solved. I believe that these people manipulate/exploit human beings to create hate, racism, division, economic slavery, etc and perhaps what we are witnessing is a last ditch, possibly suicidal, effort to save a Ponzi scheme from it’s inevitable collapse.

    1. David,
      How are you. It is interesting you mention the Ponzi scheme / banking angle. I remember coming across that angle in a recent article which touched on derivatives, Fed ending money injections etc. Would have to research on this angle more to be able to make an informed comment. I suppose Michael Rivero’s “All Wars Are Bankers Wars” would lead us to conclude that the largest banks and energy corporations are involved in the planning. Its interesting the “coincidence” that I post about consciousness shift and you post a piece about same. Another “coincidence”: I post the Steele / BBC documentary then this morning it’s on Democracy Now.
      Fascinating time now,
      Jerry
