Vote For … and Do Not Vote for …

VOTE FOR PEOPLE WHO

1. adopt broadly humanitarian values
2. are inclusive in their thinking
3. accept the concept of Human Rights
4. accept due democratic and legal processes
5. do not agree with a state that uses violence and torture in the implementation of its policies
6. do not agree with the use of violence and torture by the police
7. not accept war as part of the global political process
8. are dedicated to the generation of a global culture of peace
9. accept the right of every person to lead a life of their choice as long as they do not cause physical harm to others or to their environment
10. understand reality as being dynamic rather than static, relative rather than absolute and stochastic rather than deterministic.


DO NOT VOTE FOR PEOPLE WHO

1. who kill other people
2. adopt killing as a policy of governance
3. make people disappear
4. torture people and assassinate them
5. kidnap others and hold them for ransom
6. bomb thousands of people to death
7. want others to fear them
8. intimidate and terrorize them
9. subvert due legal and democratic processes
10. have closed and static minds and who therefore refuse to allow change
11. stir up public disaffection against their opponents
12. turn humans into killers instead of into lovers

DO NOT VOTE FOR SUCH PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF THEIR ETHNICITY OR OTHER ELEMENTS OF THEIR IDENTITY.

Nobody likes the kind of people who kill the people they govern. No body likes the kind of people who adopt killing as a policy of governance. No body likes the kind of people who make people disappear, who torture people and assassinate them. Nobody likes people who bomb thousands of people to death. Nobody likes people who want others to fear them. Nobody likes people who intimidate and terrorize them. Nobody likes people who subvert due legal and democratic processes. Nobody likes people who have closed and static minds and who therefore refuse to allow change. Nobody likes those who stir up public disaffection against their opponents. Nobody likes people who turn humans into killers instead of into lovers. Nobody likes people who are afraid to love and be loved and who want to be feared instead. Nobody likes such people regardless of their ethnicity or other elements of their identity.

Such people are disliked because they prevent and seek to crush the free expression of what it can be to be human – and this shows especially clearly in the areas of identity, gender, sexuality and belief. If we continue to elect such Authoritarian, Intolerant, Exclusive, Gender biased, Violent, Murderous, Sadistic, Lawless Killers, to lead us then we may as a nation come to be identified with these characteristics.

Today people are awakening to a new way of seeing themselves and the world. More and more people are beginning to enter this perceptual paradigm that is spreading throughout the human species. It is a world view that generates a different kind of person with a different kind of character – a kind of person and character that has always been the model though never yet the norm. These are people who adopt broadly humanitarian values,  who are inclusive in their thinking, who accept the concept of Human Rights and who accept due democratic and legal processes, who do not agree with a state that uses violence in the implementation of its policies, who do not agree with the use of violence and torture by the police, who accept the right of every person to lead a life of their choice as long as they do not cause physical harm to others or to their environment, who understand reality as being dynamic rather than static, relative rather than absolute and stochastic rather than deterministic. These are people who are able to love and be loved. They are kind, gentle, compassionate and caring. They are honest and open and they inspire trust and confidence.

It is necessary that we seek out such people from amongst us and entrust them with the task of guiding us into this perceptual paradigm that is emerging and lead us in the task of learning a new way to live, finding new lives for ourselves and building a new world for us all.
