The Fundamentals #9 Managing Our Times

Amanda Woods of San Diego is young and smart.

I am older. But I learn from and with her.

Martin Luther King Jr, born on this date in 1929 taught that “…… the wealth of cultural and technological progress in America is a result of the commonwealth of inpouring contributions.”

This human commonwealth exists across races, times and places.

When it is shared in freedom and justice, it can grow.

When it become tyrannous, it dies.

The Fundamentals #6 Kebersamaan Dunia

Kebersamaan Dunia – The Oneness Of The World.

Amanda Woods of San Diego is a conservative conservationist, in the proud tradition of Teddy Roosevelt, who reinvented the use of the presidential decree to conserve vast areas of previously unprotected forests.

I believe that good human stewardship of God’s creation is just as much at the core of Amanda’s thinking as it is at the core of mine.

The Fundamentals #3 We Need Us

My three words above stress the interdependence of us all which I see in the work of artist John Lawry.

On August 18, 1914, Woodrow Wilson proclaimed American neutrality in response to war in Europe. Seeking enemies and war doesnt do any good.

On August 18, 1920, women secured the right to vote across America. Excluding half the population from democracy wasnt sustainable.

The Fundamentals #2 Penjajahan

The profound historical insights embedded in the wonderful art of Melburnian John Lawry has lead me to the following thoughts.

The heavy weight of Penjajahan or Colonialism destroys the so called powers.

The post colonial world has not recovered yet from all of the evils which were done in the name of imperial power both to those colonised and to the colonising nations themselves.

Freedom works for people.

Tyranny works for tyrants.
