leader, a

Views from around the universe

A leader creates, builds, nurtures and guards.

A leader presides over the discussions for what should guide people in their actions with one another. A leader might offer some guidance when necessary. It will usually be in the form of a question.

A leader will only rule when it is necessary. This is the case when new scientific results necessitate change in the agreements that guide all actions in society.

In the case of a hostile attack, the leader will join other leaders around the universe, and together they will protect their people.

leadership

Views from around the universe

leadership = never heard of it

military, a

Views from around the universe

A military = pros / cons – what it does to people / why do people join?

opportunity

Views from around the universe

opportunity = a way of providing goods

Order

Views from around the universe

order = a strange behaviour observed in humans. It usually starts with a human inventing a set of rules and/or values and declaring that order is only achievable if these rules/values are observed.

order = humans seem to have a particular need for order which some scientists say is due to an internalised inferiority complex which is overcome by enforcing simplified rules which are deemed to restore something these peculiar humans call order.

politics

Views from around the universe

politics = What is politics? That is a damn good question. We decided not to bother with it.

powerful, being

Views from around the universe

being powerful = not to be mistaken with powerful being, these are two distinctly different beings but comparing them provides some insights

being powerful = what’s so good about being powerful? – has anyone ever thought this through probably?

power, nuclear

Views from around the universe

nuclear power = to put nuclear and power into a phrase show the ignorance and short-sightedness of those who don’t understand that nuclear weapons don’t give them power, they just give them the choice to destroy the planet with a big boom – destruction is not power.

power, what is

Views from around the universe

What is power? = This is a question we start discussing with our young from an early age on because it is so easy to get this wrong.

What is power? = Power is highly overrated and usually gravely misunderstood.

rebuilding a country after a war

Views from around the universe

rebuilding a country after a war = even though we like to think of ourselves as wiser than our ancestors, all planets in the universe have seen some war in the course of time . For most of us these events are long in the past and hardly anyone is now alive who has been in a war. But our ancestors left us detailed reports and instructions to deal with the aftermaths of wars, and how to rebuild a country after a war. – here add link to book stations

religions & wars

Views from around the universe

religions & wars =

rules

Views from around the universe

rules = work in progress

security

Views from around the universe

security = people are prepared to give up their homes, their social circle, their language for security. When we finally understood this, we put a lot of effort and resources into removing elements which create insecurity: such as despotic leaders, corruptions or fanaticism. We were at first criticised for our relentlessness – for our constant question: do you provide security, freedom and prospects for the region you have taken the responsibility for? And if a leader could not convince us, we removed them. Today people are glad that we didn’t search for compromises with those who cause harm and restrictions, but back then we had to face down many critics.

Soldiers

Views from around the universe

soldiers = humans in need of a job

soldiers = humans who follow the ideal of serving a country by devastating another country, themselves and their family

soldiers = people who hope that their commander in chief hasn’t lost his mind and that their fight will be good for something however unlikely it seems
