Ray’s Random Thoughts 10-17-2022

Seems our world is set in a pattern of division, fear, and hate. People taking sides and closing their minds and hearts to compassion, logic, and tolerance. We have the military and political powers of the east and west clashing over policy differences along with ideologies. Conservatism and Liberalism in the world has become more extreme thus is has created polarization not only in the political arena but in the civilian population as well.

Throughout my lifetime, I have watched The west (U.S., NATO, etc) try and spread and apply their ideals across the globe, and the East also trying to do the same. The problem is not the act of trying to spread your political and national policies, it is the lack of understanding toward the other side. There are more ways than one for a nation to flourish and more than one way for us to find a compromise between both sides.

I pray cooler heads to prevail, and that every side can find a way to make it a world we all can succeed in and live in. This is the time for Countries such as China to act more as a peacemaker and moderators than a silent on-looker or cheerleader against the west. I understand Taiwan is a problem spot for the east and west, but as long as China continues down the peaceful path of trying to resolve the issue the world may avoid a world war or at the least a war between superpowers. War, Military force should always be the last and most avoided solution to any problem.

The East and West can be great partners in this world, it has been proven in the past with the economic friendship we once had and embraced in the past. If we only could reset the relationships between our countries, forget and forgive the past and move forward as friends and allies. Think what we could do if Russia, Europe, China and USA all worked together to fix the problems we are facing in the world. We all want to live in a world of peace, I even think Putin would prefer peace over war if he could find a way to do it and benifit Russia.

We need to find a way to depolarize the world, bring down the rhetoric and find the middle ground. Time to bring Exrtremism back towards being moderate, stop looking for a boogie man to fight and see the real enemy is not each other but the problems we face as a world. We dont need a West or East dominated world, we need a world that all sides can sit down and find common ground so they can work together to make the world a better place for all sides.

Hopefuly we will find a more peacefull resolution to the war in Ukraine and keep it a peacefull path when it comes to Taiwan. We also have the Iranian issues going on and North Korea stirring up more problems. We need to bring our selves back to a peaceful and co-operative state before we wind up with a war that will lead to a extiction event such as nuclear war.

I know I am just a dreamer, a single insignifgant voice in a sea of many. There will be many who think I am foolish in the way i think and how i hope for a better world. But that will not stop me from praying and holding on to the hope one day we may all find a better way.

Peace and Blessings to all
