More frequently we think in dual terms about our world neighbors . . . as in competitors, enemies. Those we must overcome and vanquish, to preserve our own freedom. International goodwill is possible, as we see from the rescue effected by the John C. Stennis recently.
Shifting our goals to safety and good for everyone will be necessary for survival. It is entirely reasonable to believe that some day, mankind will understand that we are all the same, there is no 'them' and 'us' at all. This is true enlightenment - fighting among ourselves is dark ages mentality.
Changing our individual thinking to eliminate hate and racism, living our own lives in an honest and caring manner, moving toward wisdom which precludes judgments and predatory beliefs, supporting leaders who display these characteristics . . . let's just do it.
