Like Principles, Empathy, walking in anothers shoes, Consideration, It is all necessary to success into the future!
I spent two days gathering data on Cheney who was the real President of the US under Bush because he is doing his damnedest to create a return to the mess created by him and Bush. I see absolute failure in that regard but after months of seeing my reporting of their perverted efforts as my own thoughts I thought I better do a little explaining.
The trigger was yesterday being needlessly corrected for something I do not believe by a good friend who should know me by now. Then I went to all voices and heard more of the same form someone who obviously had a biased interest and was telling me what I thought and he was not even in the ball park.
I have said it numerous times now including in past books but I do not matter. You do not matter. I raised my sons teaching them it was not about them but about the whole of society, the world, the big picture. My ex use to get mad at me because I put others first. She called me a martyr but that is not it. You do not want a return to Cheney's perverted mind set. If their is, the perception that Islam is the enemy will ring true again. That was Cheney and Bush's mantra to enable following their superiority agenda. Not mine nor anyone else's that I am aware of beyond the Republican extremists who want a return to Bush and Cheney's mess.
I have always wondered why people could not see the truth, What the unbiased truth was so hard to get disseminated. Until I was researching Thomas Jefferson for my first book and he said unless someone has the same principles as you save your breath. You will never get them to agree with your view or the truth. I see that enforced every day in every way inn every situation and in every part of the world today.
Everyone seems to think it is all about them or what they want. You should not even be the issue! The big picture, right or wrong! Thomas Jefferson felt that once you join a society that you and your desires are subservient to the good of society. Forget about that. That is no longer true. It is reinforced every day regardless of the subject that people interject their own biased desires and needs into any given subject.
No one appears capable of practicing empathy, of walking in another's shoes. Yesterday majorly emphasized that. It made me think back to Obama in looking for a Supreme court replacement emphasized he wanted someone with empathy for every man. Right off the bat Republican Senator's said that smacks of a hidden agenda and is a no go from the get go. That is asinine to me.
Does that mean empathy, thinking of others, or putting others first is only a Democratic thing? That is asinine. When I supply links or state what others are saying I am simply stating what is out there. Not that I agree with it or that I feel that way. It is simply what is out there. I simply want you to see what is out there. What society and the world is getting for information.
It gets quite tiring to be told repetitively what I think and how wrong it is. We all know about opinion. If have one I will state it. You will know it! Most often especially in regard to our position in Pakistan and Afghanistan in any regard. It is not my thought. It is not my feeling it is that of the ruling Government. Obama. I would not and do not think that all Indians think as their leader does. I do not think they all feel like Mahatma Gandhi.
I do not think all Pakistani's think the same way nor should they. Likewise the entire world should understand we did not think the way the way the past mis-Administration was acting. Often not this one either. We are all simply average citizens of the world and can only endeavor for perfection which will never be attainable.
Primarily because every political Party, every world Government, has their own biased interest in mind not their citizens or the good of the world. Our country's will not do it but we the citizens of the world can strive to put aside our own bias desires for the good of the world and the future.
