Well, a civil war would certainly indicate that there exists a vast philosophical gap between the inhabitants of a certain geographical region; seeing as civics is the study of the rights and duties of citizens of any specific area. Now with revolutions sparking all over the world and civil wars being the order of the day nowadays, we the citizens, should really being to ask ourselves; how many of our leaders are really civil, especially about our civics? How much concern and genuine interest do they demonstrate for the people who elected them to assume collective stewardship of our civics? In seeking an accurate answer to that question, I’m certain that it is plainly visible, especially in modern politics, economics and the mannerisms with which these leaders communicate and distribute sensitively critical information. Therefore, since it is unrealistic to rely on those we have chosen to represent us in diplomatic and parliamentary relations, we the citizens must assume primary responsibility of our civics.
How exactly should I do that, one might ask. While I don’t have all the answers, I will assertively say that we must put our foot down wherever and whenever we can in whichever matter we see fit. Ancestry and Iscience are a significant part of who we are and who we must become. Knowing exactly how our ancestors lived, ate and co-existed with animals is the key to our continued survival. Not only should we seek to bridge the void left wide open by our incapacity to evenly sustain the world’s population, but we should venture on living meaningful lives. Interconnecting our talents and employing interdependence to solve our worldly problems, while leaving no room for any more to arise can be a satisfactory origin. Of course, the preservation of our natural environment is also high up there with appreciating the people around us and their opinions. Consumerism is a major factor in how the world’s leaders and major corporations malnourish our brains and slyly filter harmful substances and instill their own perverse agendas.
Syria has long been a land caught in a tug of war by internal and external forces that prioritize the available resources and commodities over the lives and livelihood of her natives. Radicalism, extremism and religion are mainly fingered as the reasons behind the constant fighting but I’m sure those looking on analytically would beg to differ. It is said that the radical nature of those devoted to Islam and Islamic beliefs are to blame, but really it is the dividedness that leave us and them segregated. Sports do a great deal in unifying a people, because there is no doubt that had Jamaicans not been so successful over the years in sports; we would certainly have a few civil wars on our hands. I mean, the hardships that are inevitable in life, coupled with the nonchalance and selective ignorance of the leaders we have elected really drive us nuts. Instead of fighting and rebelling against the ‘system’ with might, I believe it’s time we do what is right and utilize the brightness of our intellectual light.
Intellect does not solely refer to theoretical knowledge, it is the know-how. The know-how to till the soil, irrigate it; extract poisonous substances from plants and reverse the poison, making it an antidote. Additionally, it speaks to mastering patience and reverence to a science. We all should develop attitudes for gratitude, and aptitude to soar at the altitude of collective success; because what is success if it is selfish? What is the point of gaining all attainable things without ones to share with? My brothers and sisters let us never be fooled into believing that wealth can purchase health. It maybe can obtain legislative stealth, but most certainly not health. Our health has to come from within us, owning up to a natural urge to be intrigued by physical as well as mental health. But what exactly is mental health? Well, according to mental health professionals and psychologists, it has to do with how well we operate and interact within our immediate surroundings. What we can inhale, taste, sensitize, visualize and acoustically register is not even remotely close to 50% of what actually unfolds around us. We see and hear what the mind conceives. Therefore, the conception, conceptualization and eventual manifestation of unified upliftment must first begin in the mind.
So as we think, so do we become; and in thinking unity so will we amalgamate. In amalgamation, will there result procreation. Let us not provoke our brothers and sisters to wrath simply to test their faith, but instead resort to testing their inter-personal skills for enhancing the welfare of their native brothers and the entire human race. Let us not complain about the inactivity of our leaders, but instead through constant activity null their idiotic idiosyncrasies. Let us be our own enablers for progress. Even though I call on my people to cease their complaints; that is no excuse for the leaders not to do the jobs they swore to unconditionally, impartially and diligently undertake.
