“… when confronted with unusual life situations… A warrior acts as if nothing had ever happened, because he doesn’t believe in anything, yet he accepts everything at its face value.”

Oameni for Israel

n

A few days ago I read The One State Reality and beyond being a good read something from it stuck with me.

It used to be said (though I’ve heard it less and less over the years) that if you took away the politicians, extremists and religious zealots in the area you would end with people who have more similarities than differences. If that is still an underlying truth …

  • What would happen if the people of the area pretended to be one nation.
  • If they could have an ongoing conversation about what kind of life they would like to live and how to go about getting there.
  • If community leaders were given a systemic opportunity to speak out and help educate and shape public opinion.
  • If they could identify areas of action where they are already able to make changes.
  • If they could elect defacto thought leaders to be pretend governing leaders.

Would it be possible, by actively focusing on an image of practical unity to actually move away from the political debates which only serve to preserve the current social divisiveness?

Thats the story of Oameni, I originally envisioned in the context of Romania, but after that article and other recent reflections … I wonder what would happen if such a game were played in that part of the world.

I am also imagining that if such a game were played in different parts of the world … how each part, given its unique dominant challenges could contribute to a global intelligence about how to shape, maintain and direct society.
