Who’s More Worthy of Respect?

Without one principle uniting us all, we are all at the whims and mercy of some person or group that is the dominant deciding force … and that uses their philosophy, whether it is religious, political, economic, racial, etc. to divide and conquer for his/her or their own benefit.

With a globally accepted principle, we will be able to surpass all “qualifiers” that serve the few versus the many.

By Connecting the Dots … with the globally accepted The RESPECT PRINCIPLE, we choose a “win win” for all … because the only “qualifier” is being a life.

The details on how to transform our world based on our newly accepted principle then becomes the challenge, but people are innovative and creative … and once driven by valuing … respecting … all life, people will be inspired and motivated to design and develop new ways of creating and living in our world.

… then all the energy previously spent on deciding “Who’s more worthy of respect” will instead be channelled into all things positive versus negative … and we will rewrite history rather than repeating it.

Young … A Qualifier for “Respect?”

These days, repeatedly I am reading and hearing the descriptions of “new” as young, yet I am wondering why does someone have to be young to be considered new or emerging?

If we are all growing, developing, and changing, why do we discount someone who is thirty-five, fifty, seventy, or even ninety or one hundred, if they are learning and doing something for the first time? They are “new” at what they are learning and doing, though they may be young-at-heart, which the older we grow we know is true for many, so why dismiss the new who are not young?

Because youth is put on a pedestal instead of the whole life of a human being … because we value youth over all else … because we do not respect all life … yet everyone is “young” in their early years … and though some are born with natural talents that reveal themselves early, for the most part, it is over time, that the many gifts, talents, and abilities of people are discovered, developed, and bloom with life experience and increasing knowledge.

Like all prejudices, conscious or unconscious, transforming mindsets that value one group over others happens first by awareness, then conscious thoughts, choices, and actions.

The young are just young. It makes them no more special than anyone else and this they, and we, need to embrace because if they are fortunate they will live past their youth, which is when who they really are as individuals will shine brighter than their age. And, over time, they too will become “new” or “novices” over and over again as they continue to grow, develop, and change … as they too experience the journey from birth to life to death … because no one is exempted … just as no one should be exempted from respect because of “being young” or because of any other qualifier.
