THE TRUTH ABOUT COEXISTENCE***

download

 Coexistence: n. existing peacefully together

It is possible for religions to live side by side in a nation if they don’t coerce their members to believe or obey religious practices with laws that don’t run counter to the constitutional laws of a country.

There is such a thing as national economic coercion which uses money as a means of controlling the life of citizens with evictions, fines, and taxes backed up with physical coercion and possible jail if economic laws are not followed.

Nations can coexist together if they don’t practice coercion on one another.

Money is power to change the world and govern it to some extent and coexistence is sometimes hard between nations which feel economically enslaved by the richer nations.

What the nations of the world really need to coexist peacefully is a secular moral code to follow which is- except in emergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.

It is not just enough for humans to have this morality in their interactions with one another but it is also important for political leaders to practice this secular moral code among themselves for true peaceful coexistence between nations.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COMMANDS***

Command: v. to authoritatively demand an animal(s) to do a subset(s)

The lower echelons of the military and fast food workers have a rather strict command structure with exact commands on what to do. Young offspring too are frequently commanded and do relatively a minimum amount of independent thinking.

Obedience training for dogs is an example of a command structure where each command results in some well-defined animal behavior.

Where teamwork is preferable there is more independent decision making going on. If we trust and respect who is giving the commands then we generally obey them but if we don’t trust or respect the commanding party then we may not obey every single command or demand.

Frequently in marriages demands or commands are made and sometimes ignored or severely argued against because most of us do not want to be ordered around or bossed around too much.

Language is designed to facilitate commanding with questions and answers and with yes or no actions or reactions. The kind of thinking demanded by most language usage is black or white, always or never and a very stereotypic kind of thinking which leads to many logical mistakes and an inability to reason accurately when necessary.

Instead of demanding and commanding try more discussion, negotiating, and sharing of ideas and opinions in your personal life.

Historically commanding or bossing humans around was much more popular than today. Parents would command their offspring with strict discipline, men would frequently tell their wives what to do, rulers would command their followers and military leaders, military leaders would command their soldiers, and humans would command and discipline their pets.

Today many parents don’t strictly discipline their offspring, rulers and especially presidents have limited powers to command,  business leaders in many technological companies or creative enterprises emphasize teamwork and not autocratic rule, and spouses try to mutually cooperate in making decisions although one spouse may be more commanding than the other.

Commanding is still a vital and necessary function in western societies and is much more pronounced in other cultures today but the trend is towards much more cooperative strategies of leadership. Power is shared to some extent and all decisions are no longer strictly top down leadership but an exchange of ideas and strategies before a final decision is made.

THE TRUTH ABOUT NEPOTISM

Nepotism: n. giving special privileges such as a job to relatives which is frequently not based on merit and/or achievement and this is frequently done in businesses

Historically many tyrants placed relatives in positions of power because they were thought to be more trustworthy although they frequently turned out to be less competent than someone more deserving or skilled.

Today in many businesses and corporations nepotism also exists and makes it harder for meritorious non genetically related employees to make it into the top ranks of an organization.

If nepotism is the main thing standing between you and great success then marrying into the family at some level may be the clever answer to your dilemma.
