I cannot think of one time in history when “hard feelings” were no longer hard feelings. Has the world ever forgiven the Germans? Yes and no but the Germans are still paying the price.
Is forgiveness like a divorce that comes with a settlement? It must be a bit like acceptance. I accept your apology. However, I want this, that and the other. Why? Because you owe me for the past sins. Accepted but not forgiven also makes sense.
Yet here we are.
Slavery, the Nazi’s and the abuse of aboriginals in Canada are great examples.
The residential schools would be something that comes to mind. It’s a great example because it is recent. This separation of church and state was an example of where it was not. Even though this goes back to only 1995 or so when it was abolished the state is full of shit for not acting on it in modern times.
Acceptance understanding, compassion and caring are not part of our identity. Not yet anyway.
Aliens won’t visit.
They tease us, they poke and prod us, but they will not show themselves. As much as we want to know, they know better.
They know that we will create division and new wars will ensue.
New problems will arise, and it will be humans against aliens.
They know that we cannot be trusted and introduced to another race. Not yet, not now, not ever.
Humans will never be ready to accept, understand and above all be peaceful. It is not in our animalistic nature.
It is in no one’s benefit for us to be at peace. Yet we find ourselves saying we want to be all-inclusive accepting and understanding.
We are liars and cheaters at best.
Can we evolve?
We haven’t yet evolved to any sort of level where we can say we have succeeded.
Look at Russia and Ukraine. Look at North and South Korea. Take a look at the Middle East and other parts of the world where world peace could not, cannot and will never be spoken. No matter what we as humans post on our social media accounts, we are not good people.
We can say… Acceptance and understanding should be words spoken by leaders and people of power. Without backing up these claims with real measurable results and without backlash this will never happen, never.
