Where is this peace?


The World and the Mankind is on the verge of doomsday, and we, or most of us, are watching the approaching apocalypse on one of the TV Channels. Our instincts to foresee the danger is already exhausted for too much Computer game, live bombarding, and beheadings’ pictures have snoozed our instincts off, our consciousness is not working, we, the smartest creatures did it all for worst.

This is the reason we don’t realize that J&K floods can come under you, and why not, if it happens on the top of the world, say, Himalayan range, it can happen anywhere.

I tried to find out what we discuss about, but never ever get, its peace. This is, perhaps, not practical in this fast running cosmo, metro. Yet, I tried.

Politics without principle:

The whole world has seen having politics without truth(s) to justly dictate the action creates chaos, which ultimately leads to violence. And these missteps are called Passive Violence, which fuels the active violence of crime, rebellion, and war.

We could work ’til doomsday to achieve peace and would get nowhere as long as we ignore passive violence in our world.

Politics is literally defined as, the struggle in any group for power that will give one person the ability to make decisions for the larger group.

This can be defined principle as,

“the expression of perfection, and as imperfect beings like us cannot practice perfection, we devise every moment limits of its compromise in practice.”

There are many different types of regimes in the world whose politics differ. This Blunder ‘Politics without Principle’, a regime type might be more of a root of violence than another because one regime has more principle than the other.

Regimes have different types of fighting and aggression tactics, each desiring different outcomes.

This difference affects the actions taken by political heads in countries across the globe. An unjust law is itself a species of violence. The aggression of one country on another may be rooted in the government’s creation of an unjust law.

For example, a war of irredentism fought for one state to reclaim territory that was lost due to a law promoting ethnic cleansing.

Principle in one country could easily be a crime in another.

This difference leads one to believe that the root of violence is inevitably present somewhere in the world.

“Politics without Principle” will inevitably take place throughout time. “I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.”This list grew from Gandhi’s search for the roots of violence. He called these “acts of passive violence”. Preventing these is the best way to prevent oneself or one’s society from reaching a point of violence.

I concluded this with ‘rights without responsibility’ as the synonyms of ‘Politics without principle.
