Thoughts about the world


From my perspective, 2016 is probably the worst year in which I have lived in when it comes to humanism and humanitarian values. Renaissance of xenophobia, populism and frequently racism in so many parts of the world is putting us in grave dangers. The recent changes in Hungary, Poland, Austria, UK, Australia, the Philippines, Turkey, the USA are only the beginning. I am worried that 2017 will only be a continuation of bad news, which will subsequently lead us to the global conflict. We need to start looking at root causes of our unhappiness, we need to start be kinder to one another, let’s just give it a try, regardless of who we are, what we believe in. Let’s try avoiding our doomed destiny. It is still possible, if we all try a little harder.
