It is the inability to experience the suffering of another human being
as one's own, that allows gross suffering to continue on planet earth.
An article by Sherry Swiney, aka "Taoss"
Now then, what we try hard to explain to our leaders is that giving everyone an equal opportunity for education, housing, and general sustenance -- such as food, shelter and clothing -- will in fact eliminate crime mostly because it will eliminate the anger of the "have nots" against the "haves," and it will allow room for each individual to grow to their fullest capabilities when they do not have to scratch for basic survival. Doesn't everyone have the right to have food, clothing, and shelter? I think so. After that, doesn't everyone have the right to have the "opportunity" for education so that he/she has even greater opportunity to rise above obscene poverty -- if they want to? And if they have these opportunities, would they continue their anger and crimes against others? I don't think so.
But those who believe that equal opportunity takes away from their personal riches, fight these ideas strongly, and thus they portray just how primitive they are. And we, who do not stand up and try to explain these truths -- even though we understand that we might get hit over the head with a hammer -- display how primitive we are too by the mere fact that we display fear over what others may think or do when we tell the truth. We allow the bully to win because we are afraid. And we are afraid because we have not yet recognized what magnificent and powerful creatures we really are - even the poorest of us has been given enormous powers, yet because of one's focus on being among the poorest, I think these realizations remain hidden from intellectual and spiritual view. It is even possible that this is all by design and -- if so -- boy are we ever a primitive people!
However, in Truth, an evolved society would recognize that True Law is law in which people freely agree to be governed by natural law -- in other words -- they would freely agree to this because they are governed by it naturally and in accordance with what works, rather than being forced to abide by laws that do not work. These natural laws do not have to be enforced in an evolved society because they are already enforced by the simple expedient of undeniable consequence. For example: highly evolved people do not hit themselves on the head with a hammer because it hurts. They also don't hit anyone else on the head with a hammer for the same reason. Evolved people have actually noticed that if you hit someone else with a hammer, that person gets hurt. And, if you keep doing it, that person gets angry. If you keep getting him angry, he finds a hammer of his own and eventually hits you back. Evolved people therefore know that if you hit someone else with a hammer, you are hitting yourself. It makes no difference if you have more hammers, or bigger hammers. Sooner or later, you're going to get hurt.
I think today's society of primitive people see the same thing, they just don't care. Maybe they think it's the only game in town, thus displaying once again just how primitive they are. You would think that in the thousands of years people have occupied this planet, they would have learned a little more than they have thus far. Still, the struggle between the "haves" and the "have nots" continues to rule, when it is not natural for this to occur in a society where humanitarian interests override economic interests. I think that as long as man's body, and not man's soul, is man's highest concern, society will remain primitive.
Obviously, the aforementioned is against natural law and therefore primitive government needs to write laws to prevent the Hammer Hurt game amongst the people, yet primitive government allows for itself to play this game with impunity. One must ask, however, how long this impunity will last? As people evolve and observe these truths, society will begin to take on a totally different shape that will benefit everyone -- including the most rich, the most poor, and even governments.
As a woman, I observe that this Hammer Hurt game is largely a male game among our species [yes, some women play this game too but in general I see this as mostly a male game]. I don't see this game as having anything to do with race, sexual preferences, or religious beliefs at all. I see it as culturally male, and I would rather play a new game. If I had a hammer, I'd hammer out justice, freedom and love between my brothers and sisters on earth. I would strive to wake male and female up to voluntarily choose soul over body, which would have the effect of enhancement rather than oppression -- and thus we would see the elimination of crime and the need for lawless laws that desperately attempt to force people to behave themselves in a responsible way toward their brothers and sisters on earth.
Oppression spawns anger, anger spawns crime, crime spawns lawless laws and all of these things profit the primitive who strive to explode their economic riches even further at the cost of the poor. To do this, there must be oppression which continues to promote the continuance of the cycle. IMO, this cycle needs to stop at some point if mankind expects to survive.
