Democracy, Freedom, My Rights.
Democracy is probably the West Motor is Democracy and when the President of America said that once Iraq citizens are liberated they will wave flags crying free at last. It was a rude shock for all people and in the Wsest England, America and others instead of welcoming Democracy people were not ready for it and other groups moved in lording over the citizens. What filled the gap was not Pure, Peaceable, Gentle, Kind, Mercy, Open to Reason, Goodness, Compassion, Cares about you, No uncertainty, no insincerity, Kindness and the list can go on. But instead Terrorists, Suicide Bombers. Tribal groups not supporting a single government. So what filled the gap was No Pureness, Not Peaceable, Not Gentle, No Kindness, No Mercy, Not open to Reason, No Goodness, No Compassion, Does not Care about you, No certainty, No Sincerity,
A wide awakening. Has the West learnt from their mistake
So now in a mess, chaos in Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Ukraine and fortunately Egypt has saved their country because the Army with ISIS has put order in Egypt Society.
The major mistake is people are so different that all citizens, peoples, groups, organisations, churches, countries, governments, movements some want to live in an area where they can choose whether to do the right thing or the wrong thing and what is right or wrong is determined by the individual and often it is a matter of the persons conscience. Some Governments try to govern the right way such as we do here in Australia, England, America etc. The only reason it works ok is Democracy has been in place for a long time and Democracy, and peoples rights are enshrined into their Constitutions etc. And we know how difficult it is even for us under a strong Democracy, Government and Law. Corruption rears its, head all the time. If it is difficult for us imagine how impossible it is in so many other countries Governments.
So what are we to do?
There is a choice to run a country, people for the benefits of its people.
There is a choice where leaders have the power to benefit themselves.
There is a choice to adopt democracy but leaders milk people through corruption.
There is a choice to give each individual the opportunity to have a good life. Families etc
There is a choice to let groups different from main paradigm also have a good life for its group.
As we can see we can add to the list.
some groups show no Pureness, Not Peaceable, Not Gentle, No Kindness, No Mercy, Not open to Reason, No Goodness, No Compassion, Does not Care about you, No certainty, No Sincerity,
some groups try to Pure, Peaceable, Gentle, Kind, Mercy, Open to Reason, Goodness, Compassion, Cares about you, No uncertainty, no insincerity, Kindness and the list can go on.
So choices have to be made.
Fortunately in spite of its shortcoming going back 2000 years the Christian Church had meetings but the leaders of the Churches were also in Government and the famous situation is when Constatine
Constantine the Great (Latin: Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus Augustus; Greek: Κωνσταντῖνος ὁ Μέγας; 27 February c. 272 – 22 May 337), also known as Constantine I or Saint Constantine, was Roman Emperor from 306 to 337. Constantine was the son of Flavius Valerius Constantius, a Roman army officer, and his consort Helena. His father became Caesar, the deputy emperor in the west in 293. Constantine was sent east, where he rose through the ranks to become a military tribune under the emperors Diocletian and Galerius. In 305, Constantius was raised to the rank of Augustus, senior western emperor, and Constantine was recalled west to campaign under his father in Britannia. Acclaimed as emperor by the army after his father’s death in 306, Constantine emerged victorious in a series of civil wars against the emperors Maxentius and Licinius to become sole ruler of both west and east by 324.
As emperor, Constantine enacted many administrative, financial, social, and military reforms to strengthen the empire. The government was restructured and civil and military authority separated. A new gold coin, the solidus, was introduced to combat inflation. It would become the standard for Byzantine and European currencies for more than a thousand years. The first Roman emperor to claim conversion to Christianity,[notes 4] Constantine played an influential role in the proclamation of the Edict of Milan, which decreed tolerance for Christianity in the empire. He called the First Council of Nicaea in 325, at which the Nicene Creed was professed by Christians. In military matters, the Roman army was reorganised to consist of mobile field units and garrison soldiers capable of countering internal threats and barbarian invasions. Constantine pursued successful campaigns against the tribes on the Roman frontiers—the Franks, the Alamanni, the Goths, and the Sarmatians—even resettling territories abandoned by his predecessors during the turmoil of the previous century.
We know there a a lot of issues over the centuries but I am trying to make my case that the living God I serve had many of the traits enshrined in civilisation and that is why in so many area, Europe, England, America, Australia has a foundation that make our Countrie’s people great and achieve. Doing the right thing is enshrined in our countries.
Clearly I am clearly saying because of this we have great Countries and great people who are changing the world and are offering civilisation a better future.
Also I am clearly claiming the Christian Bible the God of the Bible is the reason of the greatness we have in society.
You may not agree with me but this is my voice here and you can make other comments that will be visible on this page.
