We have to learn to live with a thought, that somebody does not like us whatever reason is behind their feelings, and accept it. If we anyway wish to know 'why they don't like us?', we have to look at ourselves and see who we are and what we do. Others are only our mirror, and we see reflection of what we do, think, how we treat them and so on. I think it works on a person to person level, and to the certain degree on how country sees another country as well.
We should remember that a country's government in the eyes of the world is a face of this nation . A next step, if this country is a democracy its citizens elect their government. We can say, that not all of us go to polls, or some people cast their votes for different candidates. But we accept our elected government until next election comes to change it or go on with what we already have. Any changes should start within, i.e. if we'd like to see our country getting better we can become involved in politics, but it is very well known that any politics and politicians are corrupted. Level of corruption may vary, but it exists and we can see it in this country as well.
We can start changing who we are, become open minded, see our fear. At the same time we can create friendly environment for others allowing them to change too on their own accord. Let them be, and not attempt to change them for any good reason we have in mind. We have to remember as well this is a preschool PMR, and most of us behave irresponsibly, as a three year old behave on a playground.
Our fear makes us angry, we are not able to tolerate thoughts, believe, ideas, culture, and etc. of others. We believe we have to teach them a good lesson, to change their approach to life, to make them see through our eyes to understand our truth. We know the truth, and we are ready to go to any extend to make it clear and obvious to everybody else. We have the truth and this is why we have a right to get their resources, because we are better, than they are. Fear creates hate. We become fear and hate, and the same we may expect to have in return. This is two way road, each side influence another.
Personal changes are very slow, and it might take a number of PMR lifes to IOUC to grow and get rid of fear, fear of unknown, i.e. a next door neighbor, another language, another everyday custom... Changes come from within, from us, not from a government. We are one, i.e. we are our government.
