Come, let us build the next order of civilization, the next step up to a higher order of global human civility - ruled less and less by war and more and more by law. Let us build a World of Nations by 2020.The third step to the Age of Peace.
Let us reflect: War and peace is a false polarity. Such false pairings of the dyadic nature of the metaphysical realm lead to false understandings in the human realm, like saying the opposite of “up” is “right”. For is it not so that from war comes terror, while from law comes peace? The true opposite of peace is not war as is the common understanding, but terror, and by similar logic the true opposite of war is not peace, but rather it is law. How do we know these things to be true? Human experience; the difference is between being in a state of terror and the state of a being at peace. War and law are states of action.
The choice put forth for us is not war or peace, a dyadic miss-pairing that favors war; it is war or law, a dyadic pairing that favors peace. In which do we trust?
Let us imagine: A global warrior class and global legal class emerging from our collective global consciousness on bended knee swearing allegiance to the goddess of Justice to protect the innocent and to enforce global law. This would be at last a fulfillment of the prophecy of the lion and the lamb working together for the greater good. The warrior who is all of us, sworn to justice, the sword of justice in her hand. The sword of war put to rest. As war is the masculine principle, law is the feminine principle. In the next order of civilization the feminine principle rules, the masculine principle, modified, serves her.
Let us agree: The next best thing to the law of Love yet to come upon us is the rule of Law infused with the Love which has been given to us.
