Returning from the Island paradise of Taiwan and the modern city of Taipei, I was overwhelmed with an awesome experience that defied description. … “I have seen the future” … I had experienced the ideal future society for America and the entire world. … For more about this friendly City go to:
How do I describe what I saw there in Taipei? It was all about their “Culture”. How did their Culture differ from America’s? They show empathy for each other whereas we compete for money and power. In two words it is People vs. Wealth. … Or, … It is Empathy vs. The Dollar.
Their Empathy is what struck the Author. Empathy is what separates the values of Asians vs. Westerners. The Asian children are steeped in these human values whereas our values are more materialistic.
The author, age 88 years, is only now learning the awesome power and virtues of Empathy which was never taught in American schools until very recently. Teachers are just now starting to teach the value of early introduction of empathetic ways. This knowledge is “Golden”.
… EMPATHY IS GOLDEN …
If humans are ever to live together in peace and mutual respect, this is what needs to be taught to our children.
PEOPLE ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN GOLD
Human Values Trump Materialism
WE MUST TEACH EMPATHETIC WAYS.
TO CREATE A MORE PEACEFUL WORLD
