In the universe, everything undergoes constant changes throughout life. Owing to this, human beings cannot be left out of these changes, as well. Since everything is changing and developing in the universe, we, the people, have to pace this alternation as well. Actually, without having an understanding of what “changes” mean, it is impossible to find out neither the reason of “human existence” nor the human reality?
Future generations should be dedicated to their traditional values together with the universal ones; the soul of children must be molded with this sense and intention from early years – be it from family, society and school and the same feelings and thoughts should be given by deciding the intensity of moral education for future years. Unquestionably, the function of education should be to enable people, individual human beings, to operate at their fullest potential, to equip them with the tools and the sense of opportunity to use their wits, skills, and passions to the fullest. Education provides the means for strengthening and enabling our native mental powers.
The most important task is not to give just education to the children, but to be able to apply the knowledge they get into life. It is also important to educate everybody from young to old, in order to end up with confrontations in cultures, ideals and principles of various social groups that may cause dissolution.
Modern technology era has drawn us not only to dangers but also to many Opportunities and Conveniences, as well. The last two centuries have been the most opulent centuries for behalf of humanity in terms of good and bad deeds together. During this period how good the advantages humanity gained, it is possible to change the world into a heaven if they are appraised from a positive sight and mind. The most important thing is to use this chance for the benefaction of people, society, nation and the world.
Science and Technology will be precious if they are used to serve Humans and Humanity. Or else, they will begin to cause disaster in the hands of the uneducated, ignorant insensitive ones. Science and technology are in the hands of human beings, and there is no real reason to be afraid of it for the danger does not come from science or to construct a world upon science. The danger comes from ignorance, unconsciousness, insensitivity and to stay away from the responsibilities.
Sometimes, brainy and well planned actions may have bad results, as well; nevertheless, it is certain that lack of knowledge or unplanned manners causes ever more problems. Instead of being enemies of the innovations brought by science and technology, we should look for ways to use it for the sake of humanity.
This is possible only with the people whose brains are equipped with positive science and whose hearts are filled with love and compassion, If we cannot achieve this and if we are afraid of science and technology constantly, this fear will paralyze the whole humanity. It is not the technology but the user whom we should be afraid of.
By 1946 Einstein’s epiphany and the Manhattan Project would wreak, in the name of good, the most horrible destruction of our age in Hiroshima and Nagasaki (The United States detonated two nuclear weapons over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively). Einstein knew what he and his visions had done; after the war he made a tearful apology to visiting Japanese physicist Hideki Yukawa. Pacifist, deep-thinking Einstein, who loved children, was the father of the bomb. Einstein co-wrote the Russell-Einstein Manifesto which warned the world about the dangers of nuclear war & urged nations: “To find peaceful means for the settlement of all matters of dispute.” (The Russell-Einstein Manifesto, 1955)
The event that should make us to think over is after seeing his discovery used in a negative way, Einstein’s begging pardon with cries from his Japanese friend. As a result of discoveries and inventions found out by nowadays scholars and scientists not only Hiroshima but millions of people are crying. If young generations are brought up without a sensible moral education, and if their brains and hearts are not satisfied equally; that is to say if the generations are given carefree, aimless, unidealistic grooming and education, it is inevitable not to see them to start burning from inside and turning into flames and fires that burn everything around them.The only way to prevent this occurrence is to raise or educate enlightened volunteers who achieved to please both minds and hearts through their words and deeds.
My real conviction is, in this globalized world if we expect something from the past, then as being the world nations and educators, we should prepare and serve the songs of the future, combining with present day’s colorful and lively compositions as new melodies and tunes.
Thus, it seems improbable to survive from this crisis that surrounds mankind without giving hand to hand, enlightening crowds, teaching them to respect national and universal thoughts and values in unison and preventing negative trends that do not fit to the roots of souls of any nation or humans.
Whether we accept or not, the biggest illness nowadays is IGNORANCE, namely, Dogmatism. That caused us to change our homelands into the beds of problems and swamps. Here, educators ( Teachers, the workers of thought, moderators, enlightened intellectuals) have an essential role to play: since the source of solution is education, educators are the ones who will be leaders in this respect.
Educators are the lucky and blessed people who help generations think in a correct way; they inoculate love, provide wings to souls, teach to struggle with dark ideas and elevate them to luminous places. Educator should have an integrated perspective so that they are able to nurture the heart and mind of learners in a balanced way. If they can perform their duties in its true meaning, in a short while, the ones who look like enemies to each other will be friends, and with the magic role of moral education, they can start to live together peacefully and happily.
The next evolutionary step for humankind is to move from Man to Kind. Humanity should be our race, Love should be our religion, kindness, compassion and gratitude should be our way of life.
