Will sometime in the future, the human race would see itself as one nationality?
While it is true that we as a species have been hard-wired for agression over millions of years and have developed the tendency to operate within tribes, this was a means of achieving a greater personal survival rate. Tribes had a tendency to attack their neighbors to secure greater quantities of food etc. However, as the world becomes smaller through globalisation, we're realising that the earth provides more than enough to support all our lives if the system of management is better. There will be more and more wars in the short term over competition for resources that's for sure. But mankind will realise that wars do not equate to survival and our survival instinct will cause a re-wiring for cooperation. The current financial system will collapse fairly soon and will be replaced with a proper economy. Unlike you I do believe that we are headed for a global socialist agenda. The United nation's Agenda 21 is proof enough of that. It is certainly needed in order to maintain the survival of our species, short term. However, short-sighted in-out politics will eventually be replaced by a more effective form of management. Scientists, aided by Technology will one day provide that better system of management as it will look at longer term goals and sustainability. The key is survival. As the population grows and we become a more global, rather than localized species, our survival instinct will push us into a stage of evolution dominated by science and technology. Without in-out politics and the indoctined concept of nationality, we could become humans from planet earth.

You clearly believe in creationism for if you believed that we are still evolving you could not adopt such fixed ideas as to our potential. We are designed to survive like all other organism, nationalism, fascism, capitalism, racism, sexism, species-ism are all concepts created by ignorance and none are sustainable for the long term survival of our species. We once ALL believed the earth was round and slavery was around for thousands of years. One thing is for sure, there is no permanence... not even you. One day you will die, and along with you your fixed ideas as to your own and the human race's potential.

Will sometime in the future, the human race would see itself as one nationality?
Thank you Adir. The most damaging to harmony within the human race is nationalism. A relatively small number of individuals manage society as proxies for the masses, and direct world events from a perspective that is quite alien to most people. Much of their knowledge has been restricted to what they are told by politicians and the media, and their opinions are carefully molded to serve whatever is in the best interests of the elite. For the first time, people from all nations are united by the Internet. We do not have to rely on information provided by politicians and our national media. We can communicate in real time with people from all over the world. We can build relationships with people from all over the world. We can seek the truth. Remove ignorance and along with it, beliefs, prejudice and fear. What are we when ignorance, beliefs, prejudice and fear are removed ? We are love. This is why I am optimistic. Peace and love Lee

Thank you for your question Adir. I am optimistic that the Internet and globalization will help humans to evolve and become enlightened to the fact that the earth, all life on it, and the universe, is one organism and that we're all inter-connected with, and inter-dependent on each other. We'll awaken to the fact that nationality and the borders that divide people are mental concepts that must be removed in order for us to not just maintain the survival of our species but to thrive with peace, abundance and happiness. Peace and love Lee

If you have NEVER been to Africa, when someone mentions "Africa" or you hear "Africa", what is the FIRST thing that comes into your mind?
Hi Mary, I've just finished some conservation work for the RSPB in the UK and am now in the process of moving my business from home into an office and I'm currently in the process of selling my home in order to release some capital and free myself from debt burdens. I have had a little look online for some conservation opportunities in Africa, but many seem to be quite expensive and I will not be able to travel until after the sale of my house completes (2-3 months) If you have any pointers for me that would be great. Peace and love Lee

Is it the right of humanity to protect it's best interest at the expense of a select few?
I am not a believer in the trickle down effect, I strongly advocate consigning money to the history books. People do not want money, they want access to clean water, food, shelter, education etc. Our financial system is not an economy. It's a system of control based on fiat money and debt slavery that requires unlimited growth from finite resources. When the system has used up all the resources, polluted all the water, destroyed all the arable land, destroyed all the rain forests, eliminated most living species on earth and wiped out nations through wars over diminishing resources, what value will fiat money hold then. This financial system is just a game. That's all it ever has been. It's a game the elite play with us for their own amusement. The only currency that has any real value is gold and silver. For instance. If every pound in the UK economy went towards paying off the nations debt, we'd still owe the banks £308bn. And I believe it's worse for Americans. The money doesn't even exist. We're all slaves to the banks now.

Should (+ why is) Buddhism ( be) held in such high regard compared to other religions?
Please read from my first post up. This is part 3 It is also important to point out that one can practice Buddhism without being affiliated to a sect or group. This is my chosen path as I believe that fundamentalism can appear this way. I personally do not believe in reincarnation in the traditional sense but do believe that all of us go on living forever. (I believe that there are 200 billion atoms that make up my body that were once making up the body of William Shakespeare). I strongly believe that lust (desire), Hate and Ignorance are the main cause of emotional and mental pain and suffering. I myself was experiencing a great deal of pain and suffering while living a lustful, hateful and ignorant life. However, I can assure you that I am not a zombie without these. In fact, I feel more alive than I ever have. Since becoming less materialistic and consumerist, I attain more happiness through gaining experiences rather than material objects, get more pleasure through spending more time on community activities and with family, eat healthier, and feel so much more free from the clutches of the media and the system that controls us. I feel less ignorant towards people of other faiths and respect all people and in fact all beings as equals. I no longer struggle with anger, jealousy, patience and tolerance as I once did. Finally, the most important thing for me, is that the Buddha taught us to question everything, seek our own answers and look inside ourselves for the way forward. I hope this personal view of Buddhism is of some help. Peace and love.
