Being a Superpower is not about attacking any country or a person. Being a Superpower is not about humiliating the respected dignities, personalities and common people of other countries. Being a Superpower is not about treating everyone else as inferior. Being a Superpower is not about carrying an ego that holds a person from apologizing for their own wrong deeds. Being a Superpower is absolutely not about building walls against the entire world.
Human Being is a social animal. We humans have to live together and breed a society that collectively develops. If any of the human beings thinks that they can live and progress all alone, keeping aside the interest of all other living beings, then sorry to say, but they are living an unrealistic dream. We can’t be so self-centred that what we care about is just our own ambitions and nothing else. Humanity is also about caring for others.
Similarly, if any nation wants to make progress solely on its own, then it is free to do so, but that is practically impossible. In this era of globalization no one can stay aloof and make progress. Each one of us is dependent on others for something or the other. If any nation dares to think that it’s a Superpower and is self-sufficient in all respect then it will be the biggest mistake of that nation. Economies of the entire world are dependent on each other. It is a cycle and hence when one is impacted the other is bound to be affected by it. We can’t take decisions in isolation, especially those which have a global impact. If still, someone tries to do that, then they should be ready to bear the consequences of the same in the long run.
No doubt it’s the right of any nation to protect their frontiers, and for that, if required, they are also free to build walls at their territorial boundaries (in consent with the neighbouring nation). However, if any leader is adamant and doesn’t consider the interests of other nations, doesn’t care about nations who are dependent on them or have friendly relations with them from centuries, while making and implementing the policies of their nation, then, in fact, they are building walls in the hearts of the entire world.
Throwing away the people from any nation or restricting entry into a nation could be a temporary boost up for that nation’s economy. But such nations should think that in this time of World Wide Web and oceans of opportunities available in every part of the world, will any country be able to restrict talented people from making their presence felt? By such acts, they will not only part away with the talents working for them but also widen the gap between nations for any future tie-ups.
Mr. President, United States of America (USA), it’s a genuine advice from a common man, that sooner the better you realize it that your attitude and steps are leading you nowhere else but to a steep downfall. By your egoistic behaviour and absurd decisions, you are harming no one else but your own country, people, party and yourself too. No doubt the entire world and their economies are going to be badly impacted by your insensitive decisions and rude behaviour, but in turn, it will surely have a larger negative effect on the USA and its economy too. Just wait and watch for the future to reveal the consequences of your steps.
Do remember that “Superpower is all about respecting every being and embracing the world with open arms”. Wish the leaders of the so-called Superpower nations would have read, understood and followed the couplet of the great saint Kabir Das Ji – “Bada hua toh kya hua jaisey pedh khajoor, panchi ko chaya nahi, phal lagey ati door” (In vain is the eminence, just like a date tree, no shade for travellers, fruit is hard to reach). I also hope that the egoistic souls have heard the famous quote of Confucius “The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm.”
At last, I would like to point out that the best part of Democracy is that a government is elected only for a specific duration. However, the bad part is that some leaders could ruin the fate of the entire nation and its citizens during this period available to them. So it is up to the awaken citizens of every nation to keep a watch on all those whom they have elected to rule over them for the next term. If the citizens don’t stand against the wrong decisions of their rulers then no one else would be able to save them and their nation. At the same time, the entire world should come together and raise their voice against the absurd policies of any nation which impacts the whole world. If the entire world doesn’t register their protest against such acts now, then they will give an indication to the Superpower nations that they are willing to get oppressed by them in the near future. It’s a high time for all of us to speak against the wrong acts of any person/nation whoever it may be.
Always keep this in mind that “There is and will always be only one Superpower – the Almighty God”. I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.
God Bless you all!
Be in touch.
