Does Political Nationalism equals Racism
In this actual world with all those existing problems I´ve asked myself where this intolerance and hate comes from. Every continent got its own cultural background with positive and negative historical backgrounds. I have respect for every human being like they should have respect for me. If someone ask where I come from, I always answer: From the World, like you. When you say this, usually you see a smile on the face of your talking-partner. But honestly, this is true. Of course everyone has got his shadow / past. But when we really go back in time it is undeniable that we all come from the stars kind of. So tell me why we are always thinking black and white like. It all ends up in nationalism. Nationalism by itself is an equal for cultural background of a region. Every culture got its positive and negative historical backgrounds like I said. In a time of worldwide connection through the internet and other communication systems our generation got the opportunity to change the world. Like Obama said: “ Yes We Can! “ in 2007 . Now we just come the point, that many ideas has been invented to have a green future. We have destroyed many things on our world, but we have the chance to make it better through the next centuries. So, why invest some countries still so much energy and money in war? Everyone hates war. This is the truth. Nobody would deny it. Why do some countries do not want to share their ideas. Why do some people buy ideas just not to use them. This is no secret, but in Germany many people think, that one person by its own can not change anything. This is not true. Everyone can change their own environment. Everyone got the opportunity to change something. Back to my first mentioned question and also to my first research about my own background. Does nationalism equals racism? My answer would be: Somehow yes, but …
I would break the border. I would just kick them down. I would like people to communicate with each other to find solutions and learn from each other. Of course there are many differences in the way of thinking and acting in specific situations. This won t be possible from today to tomorrow. But it is possible to share the good ideas and the good energy to build up a world out of war. It is important to connect the simple ideas to a specific person, just as this article is connected to me. I love it, when just a simple question make people start thinking and not simply repeating things they have been learned somewhere without even thinking about it. Only in math this makes kind of sense. But when my teacher asked me what is 1+1 I always answered 3 … But only in a specific case. I will explain this answer in my following article but I give you a hint: Me is one just writing, my laptop is also one letting me write this article. It equals you just reading this article. So One and One is Three … Maybe you got me. I wish everyone a great upcoming week and hope you will follow my following articles.
