Let’s make the whole world happy for the first time

Let’s make the whole world happy for the first time. Let’s start all over—new country, new diet, new everything. It is conceivable. A stress-free world is needed, and it is possible to achieve. What is the truth that makes everything fall into place? We are all spiritually connected, as the parts of the body are physically connected. We are all one and we should live in that oneness.

We have so many amazing technological gadgets, but our human progress is nothing to write home about. The Human Progress Report Card grade is F. Who is responsible for this? We all are, but some corporations and individuals and countries are more at fault. We have all been brainwashed in so many ways, and we have to start looking at things anew.

American History and World History must be taught in new ways. Let’s start telling the truth, the whole truth about things, about what has really happened, and about what is happening right now—all over the world, and inside our own bodies and minds—right now.

We live and have our being in oneness.

A lot of people love and care for their country and the whole world, but they are ashamed and embarrassed and upset about what imperialism, racism, capitalism, nationalism, patriarchalism, materialism, and the discrimination against the LGBTQ community have done to our country and the world. These are the Seven Social Sins.

According to Christian tradition the seven deadly sins and their antidotes are 1) pride—Humility 2) greed—Generosity 3) lust—Purity 4) envy—Compassion 5) gluttony—Moderation 6) wrath—Forgiveness, and 7) sloth—Diligence.

These Seven Social Sins—1) Imperialism 2) Racism 3) Capitalism 4) Nationalism 5) Patriarchalism 6) Materialism, and 7) the Discrimination against the LGBTQ community—are the primary reasons our so-called, modern civilization is so screwed-up.

Vegan Buddhist Socialism is what I vote for. But we have to create a new national constitution that is completely fair to the seven largest national political parties. We can even give a voice to any national political party that captures one percent of the vote. The top wealthiest one percent already has a voice, or is the one and only primary voice in the mainstream media, the mouthpiece of the national government.

Cutthroat, competitive nationalism is no longer a good idea. We need to explore international organizations that are working for world peace and happiness—the Earth Federation, the Earth Constitution, and the Democratic World Federalists. Maybe those three groups can find common ground and unite together. In vengeful competitiveness, there is duality and strife. In cooperation, there is oneness and community. Let’s work together for unity in diversity.

An Anglican priest named Frederick Lewis Donaldson created what originally were called the Seven Deadly Social Sins in 1925: “1) Politics without principle 2) Wealth without work 3) Pleasure without conscience 4) Knowledge without character 5) Commerce without morality 6) Science without humanity, and 7) Worship without sacrifice.” Gandhi, a Hindu, liked this list and published it in his weekly newsletter, Young India. He also wrote the list on a piece of paper and gave it to his grandson on their final day together shortly before his assassination.

These Seven Social Sins—1) Imperialism 2) Racism 3) Capitalism 4) Nationalism 5) Patriarchalism 6) Materialism, and 7) the Discrimination against the LGBTQ community—are the primary reasons our so-called, modern civilization is so screwed-up.
