Politcs and Peace – weekly writing challenge

January 6, 2014

My intention for this blog is to answer daily writing challenge questions from wordpress.com

Ijust read the weekly writing challenge to write about Government and what we think the ‘State of the State should be.  OK.  I think the state of the state should be love.  and don’t think that is not a grounded answer.  please, here me out.  The Government is like a parent system that cares for the people and if that parent is not grounded in Love and care then the cititzens or children will suffer.

Nonviolence is key to true and authentic freedom.  Until we structure Governments rooted in nonviolent principles — we will never be authentically free.  Whatever freedoms are experienced are short term.  So, I think death and taxes and paying billions for a national insecurity fund to pay human beings to waste their time in battle when they could be doing a billion other helpful activities on this planet is out dated and ready to change.

The Daily post at wordpress.com wrote that they assumed that most of us don’t mind paying taxes for national security.  Well, I do.  so i don’t.  I think fueiling fear and violence only makes them grow – and i don’t think making war in another land brings security or liberation to anyone.  Bearing arms brothers to brothers across this planet is not what i want my money to fund or fuel.

Tonight i participated in beautiful Jewish tradition of Passover dinner called Sadaar recounting the sufferings of the Jews and I thougth how all of humanity suffers from fueling fear and violence as our life support.  We enslave ourselves to the past until we do something different in the present.  Its very sad to witness the pattern repeating….but deep down we all want freedom and love to prevail in our world.  Its one thing we humans have in common.  The desire to be

free.  I thought about Tibet.  I thought about a Friends of Nations Global movement of citizens funding the activities and businesses they believe in….I thought about love being the guiding force of our human driven Governments
