Many world governments purposely and deliberately misinform to keep humans feeling powerless. It is the responsibility of humans of the world to be alert and participate in a global cooperation to reveal the truth.
Our responsibility, as the citizens of the world, is to manage to build a bridge of truth over the sea of lies. George Orwell was stated one time, "In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." Truth has become the ultimate revolutionary act for anyone brave enough to call foul against a leader's lie no matter the time he speaks.
Acting in this awareness might challenge the established authority to avoid violating the integrity of our fellow humans, but our efforts do not end with time. Activism is needed to re-humanize and re-universalize humans, who have been de-humanized and de-universalized by the coercive authority. Our goal should be to remove the obstacles that impede improvements for all humans.
The sense of responsibility for one's actions increases in time as one progresses up on the path of his noble universal action. In other words, as one becomes more alert to the deception of others, one feels more obligation to the responsibility of retalitory action. We must create more positive human interaction, which builds unity, and we must avoid separateness, which only builds misaligned hatred and division over time.
I hope that our efforts impress upon humans that the only way to save humanity is by constant vigilance, by becoming the citizens of the world, by never ending participation and the by education of ourselves, we become alert. We live in as a world of humans, and our lives are in constant contact with other human beings. Our task in life should be divine and everlasting service to our fellow men. We must sacrifice our own comfort in order to triumph in this vital act.
Our world provides numerous examples of factional conflict of the most divisive kind. In the wake of the breakup of the Soviet Union; the evolution of Europe to become "as one;" and velvet revolution elsewhere, we've had a brief glimpse of hope for a universal peace. However, the glimpse was all too brief, eclipsed by flaring conflicts all around the world over time, some new, some old.
We are witness to ethnic cleansing and yet, very few humans are willing to challenge the authoritative and bring more awareness. Religious revivalism and fanaticism is another salient entity, which asserted itself, not only in the Islamic world, but in the Christian world without question. At the beginning of the millennium religious clashes and terrorist activities increased on an unprecedented scale.
Nationalism is on the rise and universalism is on the decline. The nationalists' close-mindedness sometimes restricts them from being a part of a bigger picture of globalization and thus, they become divisive in all aspect of humanity. They become the agents of isolationism, rather than humanism. They become chauvinists, epitomized in the motto: "It is my country, whether right or wrong."
To truly recapture the human likeness and become a member of a larger community, requires refusing to let distinctions of nationality, race, religion, class or creed blind us to our common human status. Once we enter this stage, we begin to think on the global level, which simply resonates what we all have been all along, minus the acquired distinctions of nationality, creed, race, class, or any other subcategory of humankind.
The Industrial and the rich parts of the world, which have already realized some of the dreams of the enlightened capitalists, have greater onus on their shoulders to bring about democratic change while preserving indigenous cultures in less prosperous areas. They must be pioneers and teachers to those who have not been exposed to some of the comfort of the traditional West.
We must ask ourselves: Who am I, and how can I shape the human community? How do I excel and become part of this human race? Sad'i, one of Iran's greatest poets answers this beautifully:
