In an earlier post I wrote “Inequality between the richest and the poorest is a man-made thing. Men have put it in place. Men defend it. Men can dismantle it.” I was wrong.
Recent events clearly show that left alone, mankind is selfish, greedy and tribal. Only when empowered by the spirit of love and goodness can men and women make a difference.
We need more leaders who promote that spirit, but we are cursed with politicians such as Trump who despise love and goodness. Many of the Brexit arguments from both sides were appealing to our baser nature. And we listen to them and subdue the spirit of love in our heart.
So what must we do to change the state of things? We were given the answer two thousand years ago:
“Repent, and give up our life of sin”
Each one of us needs to take stock of our values and choose to live by what really matters: to love our neighbour as ourselves. We need to embrace the spirit of love and goodness, accept forgiveness for how we have been and from now on choose to love. That is the only way that the evil in this world will be defeated.
