World needs some changes in the future
True, the United Nations will never run the entire world. The human race offers too many differences for that to happen, but at least we should be able to establish the UN as a reasoning force that can bring the different sides together for the sake of maintaining peace.
Our new century is getting to be like the one we left 14 years ago when two world wars and other minor ones left death and destruction like never before. The Middle East now is almost like the days when Nazi Germany and Japan were trying to show their mastery of the planet and we were forced to spread our arms and people in all directions just to protect ourselves.
As it is structured now, though, the United Nations is not going to protect the world on its own. It will take a group of leaders with the entire world’s well-being in mind to assert through such an organization the needs of the overall population of the Earth. It will not be a matter of satisfying all sides because all sides would never agree to one way of life. It would have to be a matter of give and take in a way that all sides will realize some benefits.
The obvious place to start would be with leaders of prosperous nations in the free world. The present United Nations may be a starting point but we must convince other members that it is not just for their benefit but for that of the entire world, whether they are presently a friend or foe.
We are convinced that a united world would have its benefits, even to those in disagreement with others.
That is one of the benefits of a free world, one in which some do not have to follow the dictates of others. But one of the primary requirements of the new way of living would be to find a way in which everyone can enjoy their freedom so long as they do not interfere with the freedom of others.
And if enough people open their minds to make that happen, it could be a peaceful world someday. Of course, the puzzle is not solved yet. Getting to the point where enough of the population will allow others to live in their own ways without interfering with the freedom of others is the big problem.
It will take some strong leadership from our country and others to do so.
