Crucial first lessons often forgotten

Relationships with other people, on personal issues as well as international issues, should at some point be taken a close look at. If people aren’t getting along too well then you have to go along with the old saying that describes the definition of insanity as: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

If people are creating more hatred, that would be inhuman as far as sane people are concerned.

If people are continually doing divisive things over and over again with impunity, it would take some unorthodox and unusual ways to try to straighten out a situation that was becoming irreparable back to a more reasonable situation.

Some people have a hard time realizing that things function better when people cooperate in reasonable and friendly ways.

If I was talking to a bunch of first graders that were 5 or 6 years old, the lesson would be as simple as telling them not be greedy, and that it’s good to share.
