Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]

Submitted by Michael (Canada), Mar 25, 2003 at 00:28

As we, and by we I mean humankind, push further into the future, the world becomes smaller and smaller, we begin to depend on each other more and more. This earth is quickly becoming a large global community, religious and political beliefs will always, and should always be the choice of the individual. However, basic moral values I believe do not differ. I am not talking about the radicals, the extremists, criminals..etc. they are the minority (a considerable minority). Honesty, empathy, and a genuine belief that all life is precious and priceless is the majority (world wide). We cannot stand back and say, "they live on that part of the world and believe something different than us, so we should just leave them alone, ignore them, and carry on with our lives. Everyone in the world is becoming more affected by the rest of the world every day. We are not "individual" areas or regions, that can survive on our own (sort of a survival of the fittest mentality). That is an ancient and terrible way of thinking. I love the idea that if we just think about being a peaceful world, it will happen. Unfortunately there are still powers in the world that will, without hestitation or remorse, punish it's "own people" for ABSOLUTELY no reason. This sounds very idealistic, I know, but it TRULY is the foundation in which our future will be built on. As populations surge, distances (physically and otherwise) between cultures will decrease. If we are to survive on this world together, we will have to unite as a world, this is not an american way, a canadian way, a muslim way, a republican way...etc. It is the way out of war, to this "peaceful" world that we all seek.
