In this era of war turmoil it seems very difficult to talk of global reasoning.
Different countries of the world are in conflict with each other. Cold war has
taken a very silent but active shape. Terrorism is at the peak. The mania of
hegemony is overtaking the world peace. Every kind of justification is given by
the aggressors to give their aggression a genuine brand. Global reasoning is
thought to be the voice of the cowardice. But in spite of all these hostilities
to global reasoning, its importance cannot be overlooked nor it can be avoided
because that is the only way the world can move towards peace and tranquility.
Global reasoning means a sort of thinking, a sort of argument that leads to the
prosperity of the whole world through peaceful process and the settlement of the
disputes through negotiation. In global reasoning, dialogue and not the weapons
are the main instruments to be applied. Global reasoning provides such a
foundation to the world on which every nation of the world, bigger or smaller,
can stand with self respect and the mutual respect. It provides such solutions
and settlements to the problems that are acceptable to all concerned. It
benefits every one and harms nobody. It requires tolerance and patience and
condemnation all sorts of bullying.
The object of global reasoning is a hard to achieve unless all the nations of
the world recognize the rights of live and let others live. It requires non-
interference in the internal matters of any state or nation. It acknowledges the
religious, political, economical and social liberties to all the nations and
allows every nation to decide for itself what is the better way for their nation
to lead a peaceful and prosperous life. Such a high aim cannot be achieved
without the peaceful cooperation of other nations. This cooperation, must
however, be based on goodwill and not on political domination or exploitation.
The UNO that was formed to achieve these high aims has badly failed. The
Security Council, the chief organ of the UNO can be held responsible for the
present war atmosphere and turmoil in the world. There is no need to go in
detail in this respect because every body knows what is happening with the UNO.
The solution, is however, not to get rid of UNO but to activate it justly. The
smaller nations of the world cannot do any thing in this matter. It is mainly
the responsibility of the big powers who have the power of veto to think over
how to improve the situation.
The first and foremost action that requires the immediate attention of the
Security Council is to make a list of those issues that are disturbing the peace
of the world and involving even those nations who have nothing to do with the
problem. The world has become a global village, without the hegemony, of any
country, and if there is a problem in one corner of the world, the other corner
is also disturbed.
After scrutinizing the problems, it is the duty of the Veto-powered countries to
find out the solutions, of course after discussion with the conflicting parties,
with a schedule of time. If the time limit is not fixed, then there cannot be
any possibility that the conditions would be changed.
It is usual with the conflicting parties to blame each other. The causes of
these conflicts are some times, very old, as old as 5000 years. We will have to
acknowledge that the claim of the any nation cannot be based only on history. If
the ownership of a piece of land is maintained on this basis, then, the whole
land, first of all, belonged to Adam. There must not by any boundaries. If we
have made or created new boundaries, then those must be respected. If there are
any boundaries that are still disputed, a demarcation by UNO must be made and
that one accepted by all the nations of the world.
Killing of humanity, the old, young and the children is a crime. No nation
should try to perform this heinous action on any basis, religious, political,
economical, social or ideological. The material attitude towards life has lead
human being to be too selfish. Every nation wishes to out-do others good for
nothing. God has provided man with plenty of sources, if we excludes the
luxuries that have intruded manís contented life, even now, these sources are
more than enough. This can be achieved by a simple and easy pattern of life. We
have made ourselves, too mechanical and too laborious to achieve our material
ends based on vanity.
The invention and the storage of deadly weapons, like atom bomb, is the greatest
evil that has lad human beings to the urge of devastating others. There is the
current international issue of holding or making atomic devices by some country
or countries and such countries are made the target of criticism. But it is
paradoxical that such a pressure is being made by those countries, who
themselves hold such weapons. It is a paradoxical situation. If atomic weapons
are deadly, and surely they are, then these must by destroyed by every state.
These must be buried deep in the bowels of the earth wherefrom they have no
opportunity to come back. If these weapons are not destroyed at par, there is no
possibility, that this race could be stopped. To attack a state, as was done, in
the case of Iraq in 1981, would prove a temporary solution. There are certain
nations in the world that have successfully achieved this technology in spite of
the opposition of the atomic powered countries. There are also certain nations
in the world who are holding atomic weapons, or the technological skill for it,
but who have not declared themselves that they are the atomic powers.
The evil of terrorism is a new one. It has taken hold of the whole world. The
terrorists are the mysterious persons. They are spread all over the world. If
the atomic devices reach their hands, they will not hesitate to use it against
any country they like. The way we have adopted to finish the terrorism and the
terrorists is not based on wisdom. You cannot finish the terrorist because you
donít have their identity, their residence and their whereabouts. To kill a few
persons as terrorist and then to boast of it thinking that they would be out
rooted is equal to living in fools paradise. The root cause of this evil, is the
injustice and the atomic devices. These two evils must be finished if the human
beings want to see this world a land of peace. When peace comes, prosperity
would automatically be welcomed.
