strongman, a

Views from around the universe

strongman = weakling who needs weapons to make his point

strongman = he who represses free thought, free expression of thought, free flow of information

strongman = person plus group of minions who lack imagination, which inevitably leads to destruction because neither a strongman nor their minions have the imagination to create anything living, breathing, healthy, progressive or enjoyable.

superiority = delusion

superiority = a mindset which can be discovered in humans who were either brought up to believe they are better than others, or who have suffered setbacks in their lives which they try to play down by blaming others and developing a persona who is per se better.

superiority = a conviction which happens to humans who haven’t grown up. Like some small human children, such people constantly need to be the centre of attention. If this isn’t given, the child and the immature human build thought pattern of superiority to belittle other humans and defend the amount of attention they demand.

Views from around the universe

victory = defeat, loss, long-term trauma

victory = Only a few decades ago, we finally saw victory for what it is. It’s a delusion. There are no winners in a war. But the most dangerous aspect of victory is the blindness that tends to come with it. Victors are always in danger not to reflect their mistakes, not to ask what it takes to prevent future wars. But worse, victors tend to derive a moral high ground from their victory thereby sowing the seeds for new conflicts. It is one of the most difficult tasks for any planet to experience victory and not be swept away by the power of having succeeded, but to force themselves to be reflective and to unearth what lies at the roots of a conflict, and patiently, humbly address each and every critical point.

war = is an illusion which proclaims that only the attacked will suffer.

Why? = an essential question

Why? = Why? is a question which comes naturally to children. Adults have a tendency to forget the importance of asking why.
