The Dark Side

It seems as though leaders of governments continue to stumble around with their heads in the sand diverting any chance of bringing peace, harmony and co-existence to the citizens of the world. They have become oblivious to what mankind is actually going through in their daily struggles to ease the burdens imposed upon them by their very own government. Today humanity is on the very edge of no more tomorrows.

With swiftness and malice toward all but a few these leaders of state are right on que in the damage that they invoke. Millions the world over continue to wallow in misery suffering the consequences of the failings of governments. No longer can we endure the bondage that is held tight denying mankind their lawful right. Peace, harmony and the joy of life have always been hidden under the disingenuous policies that are entrenched in the halls of governments.

The tempests we are enduring are the results of the ineffectiveness of our leaders. The rational that they chose has never fulfilled the promise of a better world for all of mankind. For those that are trying to bring peace are overshadowed by greed and hate. For all those tomorrows that may never be somber realities keep inflicting more grief and misery.

It has been that through-out history there hasn't been a period where man hasn't resorted to violent acts of aggression manifested by greed, hate, lust and revenge. Many can argue that humanity has yet to learn that we are all brothers of man with innate abilities that enable us to choose the directions and paths we take in life. It is these abilities that define human nature and the life we chose.

In the Biblical sense ever since Adam and Eve there has always been an internal struggle between good and evil within all of us. The internal struggle in the hearts of man where the virtue of goodness and rightlessness' compete with the inner Dark side of man has always conceived man's reactions to the crisis they always bring. Like in the Star Wars movies the Dark side of the force perpetuated a more sinister realm of reality.

When the Dark side of human nature overpowers the heart and soul of man all through-out history wars have been fought and many times the good guys actually have won. And yet the evil that men do still continues. The paradox that mankind faces today is attributed to what governments and leaders have done and not done over the last half century. Their failings are quite obvious in our world torn apart by the ravages that the evil that men continue to do.

Questions remain unanswered. Many believe that the world we are thrust into defines the course we take in life. The harshness of the realities that millions still face has an overpowering impact on the choices we make. As long as there are leaders of state who invoke policies that fail their society, we will always be victims of the dark side of man.

And as long as the leaders of state are kept in place by those with influence and money, rather that the ordinary members of society, nothing it going to change. Greed and lust for power are basic drives of man..馃樂

I believe you have fallen into the same fallacy as the religious people.

It's not a struggle between dark and light, or right and wrong.

Rather the lack of willingness to change.

The thinking what is "ours" is ours needs to change. Because we are dependent on everything and everyone else.

Is it wrong for a lion to kill to survive? Yet is it wrong for the deer to eat all the grass and therefore kill off not only itself yet as well the lion? 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔

Change or be changed or cease exist is the natural order of everything. Even subatomic particles absolutely must change or cease to exist.
