Whether it happens now or in another 5 years time I wonder if we are in the declining days of our economy? I wonder if our capitalist, democratic government is moving towards a socialist regime? After all, what do you call it when the Government of a country takes responsibility for bailing out a business (or industry) that is failing in an economic downturn? Further they speak of placing government-imposed legislation in place to cap salaries and payouts of big-business chiefs, sounds like a government taking over commerce.
Perhaps we really are heading towards 2012 as an ending of the world as we know it. Doomsday proponents will tell you that 2012 is the end of the world, but I prefer to think it will be a time of rebirth. A time when we will finally wake up to ourselves about the way we live our lives.
I can’t ever profess that I’m doing all I can for the world, I know I’m not, I know there is a lot more I could be doing, but we are living in a society that values the dollar above all else and I am part of that society. But I am wondering if it is all about to change.
Surely we are heading towards a time when the us and them mentality will end. When we realise that we are one people on this Earth. That we need a world government and we need to restructure the world to benefit all.
We are in an age of information, we can’t live ignorant of the atrocities that are going on in the world. The starving people, the dictators in control of countries, the oppression of races for the betterment of others. It all has to stop. Now!
Running the world will be no different to running a single country, hell, no different than running a large business. And I see the following being required:
No more “developing countries”
We are one world. We are a developing world and we all want for the same thing. To be allowed to live our lives as best we can.
A shift in sensibilities
We have too much in some parts of the world, too little in others. We who have a lot should be willing to forgo some of it to ensure others .
