Just watched your interview on AlJazeera. Very impressed with your objectivity, broad knowledge and lack of judgement. And (I think) that I understand what you are trying to achieve. HOWEVER. Based on the following reasoning :
a) Everyone has a different PERCEPTION of everything on the planet. It is VERY difficult to change any of these Perceptions.
b) EQUALITY is impossible to attain or establish. If one reduces Yin Yang to a very basic interpretation EVERYTHING has a positive and a negative. Eg1:Battery – electricity + and – Eg2:Good and Bad Eg3:Black and White. Eg4:Hot climate and Cold Climate. The existence of one depends on the existence of the other. If equality is introduced into these variables then effectively they cease to exist. The pendulum swings from one to the other in varying degrees under varying conditions. EXTREMISM, INTOLERANCE and/or CHAOS is the result of the pendulum swinging too far in any direction.
c) POLARISATION is the process whereby the pendulum is pushed in one direction to make people aware of either + or -.
Racism and sexism are issues which only exist because of polarisation. These are PERCEPTIONS which no degree of education, regulation, speculation or communication will ever resolve because there is this human confusion about freedom and independent thought which resists change or attempts to modify PERCEPTIONS. One huge catch 22 situation.
IMHO the problems of racism and sexism are compounded and confused by trying to address, regulate, promote ( = polarize) whereas we must accept that a) we are not all equal AND b) we are all subject to our perceptions.
So how can these very significant problems be addressed?
By making them go away.
Do not attempt to change a persons PERCEPTIONS. They are the only ones that can do so by experience and observation.
Accept that SEX is a personal and private perception of oneself and that this can only be shared with people who can accept and understand that perception.
We should never legislate or judge people with regard to sex, creed or colour.
This cannot be achieved by trying to enforce equality because that is impossible.
The only solution IMHO is to get people to RESPECT everything in this universe, take RESPONSIBILITY for their own actions and not expect any RIGHTS, I am busy trying to unravel this philosophy on my website rrrhelp dot com but I still need a lot of outside help with that.
As well-intentioned and admired as your work, books and website might be I sincerely believe that you will achieve a lot of good but that you are really polarizing the situation rather than solving the problem.
Your comments and opinion on TheCode = A moral compass = RRR (Respect before Responsibility before Rights) would be very much appreciated.
Thank you so much for reading this,
This subject is more contentious than any other subject on the planet because it agravated by PERCEPTION, politics, personal privacy and, above all, SUBJECTIVE CONTROL.
To be completed after I have finished other posts on RRR which enable this subject to be simply, objectively and intelligently considered and viewed.
Under development at this time.
This list of Pwords define the actions, groups, concepts, opinions, beliefs and “catch words” that promote the chaos raging on our planet at this time.
Perception and Polarization:
Which have been dealt with separately here.
Under development at this time.
I really wanted to establish SOLUTIONS to our problems but this is not really possible because of the Freedom of Mind and Spirit and the resulting individuality of each and every person on this planet. This reference is worth reading because it clearly shows the importance of responsibility and rights involved in understanding the word freedom.
What does this mean? It means that SOLUTIONS really cannot be absolute. When one is advocating a solution to a problem there are two factors that need to be taken into account. The first is Right and Wrong and the second is BALANCE
So any solution that is provided can only ameliorate that problem at that time under those conditions and addressing that level of responsibility. And furthermore in the hope that it can stimulate people to consider the solution and evaluate it WITH AN OPEN MIND.
So, to avoid further confusion RRR will attempt to provide SOLUTIONS to all the PROBLEMS which we identify but will include qualification of that SOLUTION to the best of our ability.
American Law has failed the USA very obviously and extremely sadly because trump IS in the White House. If the American Law was not totally stuffed (as is the Law in Australia – whereby ANY legal objective can be achieved with enough legal power if it can be afforded) then trump would be in jail. Certainly not able to stand for election as President.
So the question only needs to be slightly adjusted to say: Can trump defeat the American Constitution as easily as he has defeated the American Justice System (usually referred to as TheLaw)? Considering the total lack of responsibility displayed by the Republican Party by saving trump from impeachment, I must say that trump’s chances of making himself Dictator of American are JUST AS GOOD as his chances of another term as President. GREED and PROFIT 1s the sole political objective of the Republican Party it would seem. With over 100,000 deaths by Covid-19 and the recent race riots in the USA they certainly do not care for the peasants = those who do not vote for the Republican Party. The Second American Civil War is heating up!
He says that he does not read. However, as that is probably just another lie, I would suggest that any reading he does includes Mein Kampf, all Hitlers political speeches and every word uttered by Putin. He is certainly re-enacting their roles in the world.
Having spent some months of my life working in America I must say that I feel very, very sad watching them destroy themselves under trumps “rule”. Since they were the leaders of the western world I wonder where we all go from here?? While trump is destroying America in his efforts to take control China and Russia are very busy expanding there influence!! And the present-day America are so self-centered that THEY are letting it all happen.
To quote Maurice Chevalier : I am really glad that I am not young any more !!!
