ON THE WAR IN IRAQ AND THE HUMAN HARMONY IMPERATIVE:
Four score and seven years ago,
a specter was haunting Europe...
into ploughshares, (and our) spears into pruning hooks." This ghost has returned to possess us. Let us all come together to
exorcise it: change ourselves and all our communities to be whole.
We need this healing, and the resulting harmony, for real human development.
Eighty-seven years ago, World War I was raging full-scale in Europe. Two such World Wars have wrought havoc on humanity, raging within a few decades of each other. It took having to pay that horrible price before the international community of nations could form a broad and formal consensus against war and against international military bullying.
many people in various countries have unfortunately remained victims of
the Savage Ghost of Separativeness, resulting in near-total absence of
prudence, of civil decency and of love for life. Thus these people have
remained willing to engage either directly in mass killing, or in
defeatist toleration, or even cheering, of mass killings. Each
war of aggression is actually one gigantic garbage heap of all
individual human tantrums, small-group self-righteousness and
Because of the actual interconnectedness of all, many people, though
unconsciously and unwillingly, feed energy to war with the intolerance and
prejudice lived daily in their personal lives. There would be no war if
the majority of the people were to choose to personally deny it this
may ask, “What, the hell, is going on???” Yes! Hell is
going on. War is hell, with all the suffering and all the
hatred that pollutes the air in all of the countries involved, as it
looms, when it comes, and long after it ends.
When nations raise swords of any kind to strike down nations,
victors can only reap Pyrrhic gains, as widows, grieving parents, and
orphans wail amid all that poisoned smoke billowing from ruined homes
and burnt crops. And if biological and chemical weapons be used, or
worse, nuclear weapons, the presence of which is neither confirmed nor
denied, the survivors will painfully envy the countless dead until they,
too, get total and permanent relief from it all.
we going to allow the new-millennium human civilization to regress fully
and openly to the Jungle Jurisprudence that "might is right"?
The answer to that is no longer "blowin’ in the wind"!
has had more than enough wars to see the absurdity of it all. Whichever
side wins the decisive battles, no one but no one can really win a war.
Let no narrow vested or partisan interest of any sort continue to blind
anyone of us from seeing this truth: in war, we all stand to lose,
as the whole human race loses!
consensus since half a century ago has been simple and clear. No country
may be justified to engage in war unless: (1) it is in self-defense, in
response to an actual military attack; or
(2) it is in compliance with a decision of the United Nations
through a vote of the Security Council.
Preemptive attacks are not justifiable. That has been the
historic consensus. Although it has been imperiled by many wars all
around, it is now most glaringly jeopardized by the specific
circumstances of the present war in Iraq.
United Nations is not disheartened after being dealt a near-fatal blow
by brazen defiance coupled with predictable impunity. The UN has now
chosen to focus its efforts on bringing survival provisions into the
cities now being bombed, on seeking the security of non-combatants and
the humane treatment of all persons and communities in general. These
efforts deserve all the support they can get, in terms of time, talent
and treasure. The maximum of human compassion is urgently needed in this
conflict in Iraq is now drawing more and more people into refusing to take sides
and into being active advocates for the cause of peace. In
this “eve of destruction” situation, while the cruel war is raging,
we are focusing together our celestine energies to visualize and
imagine, and work together in earnest, to bring forth a world where men
won’t be boys playing with bombs like kids play with toys, where all
the people will be sharing all the world and living life in peace. You
may say we are dreamers, but we're not the only ones! Our numbers are fast growing!
More and more are joining us now, and the world will soon live as one.
The path to the attainment of real human development and harmony in synergy can be rendered more and more extremely difficult and perilous by the war developments. Still, people in various countries worldwide, in their fast-growing numbers, are seeing the Light of Truth on the Essential Oneness of All, a oneness that embraces even the most vicious and most arrogant of the ignorant bullies in the history of Humankind. Making up the living communities for the Great Human Synergy, these peacemakers are now willing, and even eager, to share and to fully live that light everywhere and everywhen.
The human race will
soon completely outgrow the terribly
self-destructive folly called war. Real peace will finally
come to us all, from deep within us all, in our dynamic togetherness.
The power of love for others will be stronger than all love for power over
others. We shall have come to really know by then that all humans, and
all other members of the living Universe, are but widely-varying fingers
of the same Hand.
