Where do we go from here?

Commentary by Carolyn Bennett

People without moral or ethical core, without consciousness in and with society bring great danger on the world. Add the weakness of incompetence and the mix is forever lethal.

Consider the West and its wars on “its own people” (their society and institutions) and on the health and welfare of the peoples of the world. Britain, France, North America endlessly at war. Endlessly pounding the world’s people into the ground so that “developing” nations never get a foothold in the far-reaching progress their cultures and ancient history, geography and natural resources could bring to their land and peoples, their way of life.

The horrible state we’re in does not have to continue. It doesn’t have to be this way. We can do better.

No people should live in huts, shacks and camps while others live in mansions and gated communities congratulating themselves for ministering “philanthropy” to “the poor” they and their protracted wars create the perpetuate.

No one should bear exposure to the elements while kings live in castles on a hill. Mansions are no more entitled than shacks, poverty and war are inevitable.

These things are worth thinking about.

Leadership is worth pondering. Where do we find among ourselves truly moral (not religious), ethical, insightful, world-society conscious leadership? Where do we find able, incorruptible and uncorrupt governance?

Where do we go from here?

Do we care to exert ourselves collectively and individually pondering the state we are in, and what to do about it?
