Bremerton, WA (PRWEB) September 22, 2008
The Society of Secrets now has online information that discuss the following concepts. World peace starts when you add more value to the free market than you use. A value helps the physical, mental, and emotional health of other people. A valid government protects your body and your property from criminal force and a false government uses criminal force to steal from its own citizens. A valid Faith is a set of beliefs that unites all people on Earth as one and a false faith is a set of beliefs that divides all people on Earth into "us" and "them." Capitalist economies based on reason and compassion, honesty and kindness, give you the freedom to create a life that benefits you and everyone around you. No war. Only trade. Heaven on earth. World peace.
Criminal force may be direct or indirect and ranges from force, threats, and fraud, to guilt and fear. However the purpose of a criminal mind is the same, to produce less competitive, tradeable values in the free market than he consumes. Can a criminal mind from petty pickpocket to political tryant become a productive mind? Of course. It's a matter of choice.
Of all governments on this planet only Capitalism uses no force to govern its citizens except to apprehend individuals who use criminal force to steal from their victims. A valid government protects your body and your property from criminal force. A false government uses criminal force to steal from its own citizens and the citizens of other countries.
However critics of Capitalism point out its often harsh treatment of people with few resources - how many people in developed countries are homeless, unemployed, or have jobs they despise? Rich De Voss author of 'Compassionate Capitalism' said that to work for everyone Capitalism must have compassion at its core. Long term charity creates dependence but long term compassion creates independence by helping people help themselves.
What About Things Money Can't Buy?
Take away all man made values on Earth and we plunge into prehistoric survival of the fittest. However what about things money can't buy like acceptance, integrity, and wisdom?
Science asks questions and religions help people feel good about the answers. However any religion that uses criminal force is a criminal organization not a spiritual one. That said, why not look at life in positive ways and with gratitude?
Bonnie Kuchler coauthor of 'One Heart' says religions have the same common denominators of compassion, faith, and discipline. Joseph Campbell in 'The Mysteries' said that every culture has Gnostics who are the root and trunk of the same tree, the branches of which are different religions.
What is More Valuable, a Higher Cause or Your Individual Rights?
In the 4th century BCE Plato and Aristotle defined two opposing philosophies that still deeply affect world peace.
1) Plato claimed the highest value in the universe is NOT people but a higher cause or a higher authority like profits, religion, or government to which people are altruistically forced to be sacrificed. Historically altruism often used criminal force to sacrifice people to a 'greater good'. Plato's philosophy is the foundation of Literalist religions, among them Orthodox Christianity.
What are the results? A 2300 year circus of Inquisitions, Holocausts, and 911's promoted by irrational religious leaders and dishonest politicians because irrational, dishonest citizens are easier to fool. Honesty is free of fraud and deception; dishonesty uses statements either out of context or that falsely link a great value to a small value. Adolf Hitler was an altruist who sacrificed people for his higher cause of the Third Reich.
2) Aristotle claimed the highest value in the universe is people and no one has any right to anything you work for unless one of you agrees to sell and the other agrees to buy. Aristotle's philosophy is the foundation of Gnostic religions, among them Gnostic Christianity for which books by Princeton Professor Elaine Pagels are well known.
What are the results? No war. Only trade. Every effect has a cause; the highest cause and authority in the universe is within you, the individual. Your thoughts, desires, and actions create your life which is most enjoyed when you are rational, when you know by experience how to add value to your community. The purpose of government is to protect for every citizen the best life which is to balance work and leisure and to develop intellect and character by thinking of the person you intend to become. Wealth is more than money. Citizens take turns to rule and be ruled, to defend and be defended.
Unlike Plato and Kant who said humans are forever bound by their five senses we now know they can be extended endlessly through tools and instruments. There is more to the universe than our senses perceive and imagination frees us from the limits of our senses. We now watch subatomic particles collide and interact as well as watch galaxies collide and interact.
Philosophy, of which religious faiths are simplistic views, attempts to understand the universe. How did life begin? Are you a physical body or something more? Why are you here? What is love?
A Faith is simply a set of beliefs, and beliefs are simply what you no longer question. A valid faith is a set of beliefs that unites all people on Earth as one. A false faith is a set of beliefs that divides all people on Earth into "us" and "them" and whose leaders often want your money in exchange for nothing of value.
Beliefs whether 50 or 5000 years old need to withstand the scrutiny of honesty and reason and to question beliefs as knowledge increases lets us grow into the future instead of being stuck in the past.
There are too many amazing mysteries in the universe to stop asking questions like "How does life begin on a planet?", "Is consciousness a fundamental part of the universe?", and as Quantum Physics suggests, "Are there higher dimensions in the universe?" and if so one may ask "Does God, Brahma, Great Spirit, Allah, Buddha, Tao, and Ultimate Reality exist in those dimensions (not literally of course)?"
What is reality? There is only one, the reality that began when the universe began. The closer you get to that reality the more we all experience health, wealth, and peace of mind. First comes inner peace and then comes world peace.
