Moving forward

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one

Understanding of the problem – is the first step to solving it. To date, we have to deal with many problems; poverty, hunger, unemployment, drug addiction, crime, terrorism, violence, slavery, corruption, war, exhausting natural resources, extinction of species of animals and plants, environmental disasters. Virtually every one of us knows that we have all these problems.
It should be noted that huge efforts are being made by mankind to solve them, but no significant progress in solving them. In particular state, corporations and philanthropists organized charities to support poors, but the number of poors is growing. State uses police and law enforcement to fight crime, drug addiction, human trafficking, but to date the number of drug addicts and criminals is growing as never before. according to some reports at the present there are more slaves in the world than in the entire history of mankind. The activists of the movement “For Human Rights” are struggling with violence, but violence is increasing. Anti-corruption practices adopted by States lead to tighter control and at the same time tightening the very corruption.
If you have a fever and abdominal pain, a “kind” doctor can give you a painkiller and for sometime you will feel better. A good doctor however,  will try to understand the causes of your symptoms, try to examine and explore your body to eliminate the possibility for example intestinal infection or appendicitis, in the case of infection, he will prescribe you antibiotics or he will advise you operation without which you will die within next 3 days . The first approach is symptomatic (when treatment is aimed at eliminating symptoms) second approach is etiologic (when treatment is aimed at addressing the causes).
If you think about etiological approach to solving all of these problems listed above, when leaching deeper analysis can be understood that in spite of the fact that all of these (and many other) problems seem so different, they are all deeply interrelated and have the same root!
“Behold the root!”

Founded in 2008, The Zeitgeist Movement is a sustainability advocacy organization, which conducts community based activism and awareness actions through a network of global/regional chapters, project teams, annual events, media and charity work. The movements offers restructuring of existing society to create a Società without private property and without the monetary system itself. The first reaction to the proposal of many is “Ah! We have already been there and done that! Once again, talking about Communism with its utopian slogans!”

In fact, if you carefully study the philosophy of this developing movement is possible to understand that despite some similarities in the ideas with communism it still have more of the differences. Yes, we have “eaten a dog” on the building of the communism, but that does not mean that we should forget about the bad lessons of history, on the contrary, we must learn from the history not to repeat the mistakes of the past, but to keep rational and to try to get it right. History repeats itself, but it is repeated in a spiral and each new round takes place at a new, higher level, it is the law of evolution in nature and our society also needs to develop evolutionary.

Despite the apparent simplicity of the Zeitgest philosophy it is rather difficult to convey to most people. This is like trying to describe the 4th dimension to a person who is accustomed to think in 3 dimensions. Of course there are so many questions that people have to find answers to before ideas of Zeitgest become a reality; in particular about the mechanisms of transition from current to these new concepts… Nevertheless, in my opinion, they have a fairly simple concept that is worth attention and worth to know about it and deserves thought of more people. We as a human civilization are running out of time to do something to save ourselves from extinction.

About Ahmed Islamov

I was born and raised in Uzbekistan and lived in that country for about two thirds of my life. I left the country about 14 years ago but sustained tight bonds with my family and friends living there. I know and communicate personally with hundreds of people including blue-, white- or pink-collar workers. I am naturally very attached to and concerned with everything that is going on there.
