We’ve finished a very rough draft of the Introduction for the Humanity Party®’s book: The Way To World Peace.It’s our hope that upon reading this book, the youth of the world (the upcoming generations) might unite and demand a new order of government and cooperation between the nations of Earth.
This introduction is meant to introduce the idea that peace CAN be accomplished. In later chapters, we will go into more detail of each concept: 1) Knowledge vs. Intelligence; 2) the End of Organized Religion; and 3) the End of Poverty.
This book is for all of you. Because it’s for you and the rest of the people of the world, we welcome any comments and suggestions for the final draft of the Introduction. This Sunday’s THumP® BlogTalkRadio Show will be dedicated to discussing this Introduction and helping me clarify what needs to be said. Please study the introduction and call in and speak with “Anonymous” about it.
The book, The Way To World Peace, will serve as part of the introduction of The Humanity Party® to the world as a political party under which all people of all nations can unite together and demand change.
Well, at least we can imagine it.
To accomplish sustainable world peace, three things must occur:
Free education (intelligence) must be made available to all people of the world.
All Organized religion must end.
Poverty must be eradicated.
The most important of the three is intelligence. Intelligence can end organized religion, which can then result in the eradication of poverty.
Humans are separated into nations, kingdoms, and territories, each with its own sovereign government. Borders have disconnected us and kept us from becoming a unified species of the most advanced life form that exists upon Earth, or anywhere else in the universe as far as we know. In our past, we developed forms of communication that we call languages. These languages were not created, nor did they evolve from the natural, inherent humanity (intelligence) that we all share in common—a humanity that has the potential to unite us. Language has divided us and will keep us divided until we find a way to transcend it and unite under our shared humanity.
Language did not create our separation. Our separation created our languages. Had all humans continued to live in close proximity of each other throughout time, there would have existed only one form of communication among us—only one language. It is not our languages that keep us divided, because they didn’t divide us in the first place. We became divided long before languages developed among us. Therefore, to unite together, which is the only way that we will create worldwide peace among us, we must first understand what divided us.
The natural human propensity to be recognized apart from the whole, and then support and protect individuality—otherwise known as the ego—is responsible for our division. Possessing an ego is uniquely human. No other life form has an ego. We were born with an ego. Although all little children possess the natural predisposition to support and protect their individuality, the way that they do it in dealing with each other is very different from how mature adults deal with each other. Little children cannot speak, nor does language play any role in how they deal with each other. Children lose their child-like innocence as they are taught the language of their parents. In turn, these different languages produce ideologies, traditions, religions, judgments and prejudices—the philosophies of men, whereas men are generally responsible for the development of human language. And the male ego is primarily responsible for every war that has ruined peace on Earth.
Little children become adults, not necessarily by age, but from experience. This experience is knowledge. Knowledge is the perception of our human experience that each individual retains in his or her memories. But every perception of each experience is different and depends on the language and philosophies that learned behavior and knowledge provide the individual. Little children do not have a lot of knowledge, but they have intelligence, which is what makes them uniquely human. Knowledge can destroy intelligence. Our shared, original, inherent humanity is greatly affected by knowledge from the experiences that we retain in our memories as adults. Children do not cause wars, adults do.
The ONLY way to peace on Earth is to become again like a little child in the way that we perceive and deal with each other. If we were to put a child from each nation on the same playground, we would witness a phenomenal human social interaction that we forgot was possible. Watching little children interact with each other would bring tears to our eyes as we realize how far we have strayed from our shared humanity. We would see little children playing together without speaking, neither reading rules that adults have posted on the playground. We would witness childlike imagination, spawned from their shared humanity.
Our ability to use our imagination like we did when we were children has been stifled by the knowledge that we have been forced to value and accept. We cannot achieve world peace unless we can imagine it. Too many adults have been convinced that world peace is not possible. And according to their experience (knowledge), it will never be. The words of a popular song transcend the philosophies of men that are mingled with their writings and has the power to cause the listener to feel strong emotions of childlike unity:
Imagine there’s no heaven It’s easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky
Imagine all the people Living for today…
Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too
Imagine all the people Living life in peace…
You may say I’m a dreamer But I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people Sharing all the world…
You may say I’m a dreamer But I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us And the world will live as one
We have lost our intelligence to the philosophies of men mingled with the written form of language from which we are taught ideologies, traditions, religions, judgments and prejudices. We have been taught (acquired the knowledge) how to think and what to think. Upon acquiring knowledge, we have each developed a sense of our individuality. The commonality of this sense depends on the culture in which each of us were born and reared. Common sense is perceived as a positive adult characteristic. But what adults sense in common is vastly different than what little children sense. Well did the renowned German physicist, Albert Einstein, say it:
“Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.”
Our inequality upon this earth is directly associated with our egos. The economic classes that create poverty are associated with our egos. Patriotism is a product of our egos. Every aspect of argument and discord among us can be traced to our egos—usually to men’s egos. In order to create again what we could only accomplish as little children, we must return to becoming like little children. We must first dissolve the emotional borders that divide us before we will have the desire and power to dissolve the physical borders for which we kill each other to protect and maintain.
No child holds sovereignty over another. Knowledge has convinced us that sovereignty is more important than unity and peace. Properly defined, “sovereignty” means:
“The quality or state of having rightful, independent, and supreme power or authority in governing the people of a state or community.”
Pure intelligence questions how any sovereign group of people can unite with another sovereign group, when each group feels that it is their prerogative and right to independence and supreme power and authority? True unification of separate sovereign powers is impossible and any such attempt is futile. A group of people that thinks its ways and laws are right will never cooperate with another group of people that, just as strongly, believes that its own are. Each group will fight for its position and opinions.
Sovereignty is responsible for every war of bloodshed and terror that has ever afflicted humankind. Unity, when experienced, can promote peace, cooperation, and humane and equal laws. Sovereignty must end. The only sovereignty that should exist is that of the individual and one’s right to exist and pursue happiness according to one’s desire for happiness, whatever that might be, as long as the pursuit does not negatively affect the individual sovereignty of another.
Human beings must unite under one World Constitution, one government and one authority. But what kind of worldwide Constitution and government should this be? Forming a government that benefits all equally must be based on our innate intelligence, not on our knowledge. We must first imagine that it can be done, then form it on the qualities that we shared as little children. The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination. We simply need to look at Earth as the ultimate human playground upon which children play with each other without language, ideologies, traditions, religions, judgments or prejudices. We must form a united government that protects the way that we play with each other and share the same playground.
Upon applying the core principles of our shared humanity (intelligence)—that which glorifies us above all other life forms—we can create world peace. But first, we must devalue those things that we have been convinced are of worth to us that separate and divide us. The things that we have learned and have accepted as valuable knowledge—those things that are taught to us in the schools and universities throughout the world—have done nothing but divide us further. This small book will help us return to our innate, childlike intelligence by explaining what no accredited education can teach us.
Again, quoting one of the most valued, knowledgeable men in history:
“Education [true intelligence] is what remains when one has forgotten all that one has learned in school.”
There is a way to world peace.
