The Common Goals of Mankind - Seeking Peace in a Polarized World

Sub Tuum.

Once again it is worth reminding that I believe that most people in the world ultimately want the same basic things. They may differ in how to get there. Yet, as we compete for scarce resources, mindful that there are many of low morals and high greed that will try to take more and more at the expense of others, it is all too easy to view those that disagree as the enemy and become more and more polarized. And, there are those who profit off of disharmony, conflict, and polarization. The people of the world are being split apart by a few who do so for their own selfish ends. When people sit down and discuss issues in a framework of respect, openness, and reconciliation, however, many things are possible.
