The latest Palestine-Israeli war and Russian-Ukraine war begged the question: why? In a conflicting overpopulated world of globalization people should deep breathe while meditating and workout to deal with issues of insecurity and crowd following. Settle for the status quo!
It’s people like Putin and Hamas who make the rules of engagement. To appease their desires hundreds of thousands, suffer in the process, and for what exactly? A little bit of land, the satisfaction that they are trying to prove a point. It is absurd when so many suffer in the midst of such atrocities being witnessed by the whole world.
There is a lot to be said for settling for the status quo. On one hand we talk about modernizing which is a good thing to a certain degree. Then, if we talk about military action then is all the bloodshed and disruption worthwhile? If innocent bystanders are killed, injured, or held hostage in a reform such as war, the entire action is unthoughtful and dam right self-centered. There must be a better way!
If we all work towards improvement then we learn proper values, and that peace is the way forward. Wars are from the past, not to be repeated, alas those who stay with the past values are aggressively annoying.
The Ukraine has not only suffered attack after attack, but people’s lives have been turned into panic-stricken suffering, The country’s infrastructure has been damaged, businesses are closed, and consequently livelihoods are threatened. And for what, so Russia can have more land because Putin feels a potential NATO country would mean Russia will be trod on.
Have a terrific day!
