The religions require re-interpretation in modern context so as to do away with ancient and medieval prejudices and biases against each other. There should not be any place for invention of any new religion as new religion would change the relations among demographics and therefore politics and economics. A new religion can also affect the geo-political stability of the globe. The world can reject the invention of new religion by not dividing itself on all dividing issues.
All religions need to adapt themselves with time so as to accommodate changes taking place in the societies because of the interactions and the technologies and also because of the changing consciousness. Theism should dominate the atheism as a rule though exception can be found out. While understanding the limitations of absoluteness of religions and gods is mandatory, the idea of God should be considered as the most important and religions greatest preaching. Emphasizing the relativistic aspect of religions is the most important thing; Christianity for Christians and no one else as a group and similarly Hinduism for Hindus and Islam for Muslims.
The people need to become more sophisticated with time. They need to understand that globalization in this internet era helps all but it helps the richest most. If an Indian, Chinese and an Arab can learn from the internet then the Americans and other Westerners would learn far more and maximum. Only thing is that Westerners, particularly Americans, do not need to be complacent about their dominance and need to study well and continue doing hard work.
The people need to understand the constraints of their leaders and government. In this vocal nationalist world the responses of the federal government, at least in public, are limited as they have to look at the totality of the things. The same applies to the leaders of the rest of the West. People in the BRICS and the rest of the non-West should not compel their leaders to talk diffusive opinions and about the world that does not exist. It would create huge bubbles in the Rest with few having impact on the West as well and if they are not burst then they can create problems; even economic slowdown. But one thing that all need to understand that it is not possible for anyone, including the Americans, to impose any kind of slavery or colonial attitudes in today’s world.
Internally the Americans and others need to understand the complexity of composition and their social histories. Like, in this race for the White House, the White Republican voters need to understand that Mr. Romney would require the support of other non-White voters and similarly, the non-White Democrat voters need to understand that Mr. Obama needs to show some Whiteness in order to be re-elected. The voters need to permit flexibility to their respective candidates.
In the rest of the West, the societies need to have converging politics and bipartisanism should be tried. In the Rest where there are democracies, the proliferation is a natural phenomenon wherever there is heterogeneity. But all democracies need to agree that more than four political parties or alliances are not good for the health of their politics and they should look for integration and mergers to reduce the options. The options should be as neat and clear as possible.
The world needs to understand that Americans and other Westerners before leading the world to the path towards globalization should have controlled natural resources of the world to the extent possible. That’s how Americans can dictate price and inflation to the world. The price and inflation-diktat can be maintained by inducing expectations; many of them unreasonable, by convergence and universality, by tuning-in the lifestyles in a global way and most importantly by insisting on the universality of capital and state. Americans are not so simple people as to allow China to copy their rights without getting some favors in return. Americans companies may get huge shareholding in almost all important and big overseas companies which are accused of copying American patents and the American capital expands both horizontally and vertically because of this.
There is nothing called Post-American world; the US is irreversibly dominant and the West is the most potent civilization. The country which is institutionally similar but culturally dissimilar and has the required human and natural resources can only challenge American dominance and there is no such country on earth. The world also needs to adapt sexual revolutions with proper morality and ethics. It is good to enjoy sex as much as it is possible but by remaining somewhat moral and ethical. The people require psychotherapies in the sense that they understand that understanding others’ viewpoints is as much required as emphasizing their own. The world all over also needs to understand that shredding inertias is required even by the most potent societies and all need to update and adapt with time.
The globe also need to understand the world from certain laws: consumers can not beat first producers just by consumption and that consumption and consumerism help the richest maximum. There is no alternative to the capitalism; there should be capital in order to be distributed and shared by reasonable taxation and spending. Edge will always be maintained in a consumerist growing world. There is no end to the world except when geophysical factors predict so and they should also believe in the positivity of entrepreneur skills of the humans: that Stone Age would not come. The Americans and the rest of the world need to celebrate life and humans’ achievements. They should be proud of the anthropocene.
The laws are simple: if all gain the rich would gain maximum, if the whole earth prospers the US would prosper maximum, if the Left gains the Right would gain more in long-term, if ordinary becomes more beautiful the more beautiful would become gorgeous, if all Africans becomes educated the number of genius on earth would become very high. This is the inevitability of non-linearity of economics and politics. The statistics and distributions should matter most. Becoming data-conscious require transformation from simplicity to complexity but the complexity should not be imported.
