The only way for humanity to be redeemed (free of conflict) is for all of countries that are left behind, lag behind to embrace the cross, that is for them to embrace their humanity, take up the burden of their fellow human beings, look for solutions to ease human suffering. “If a man wants to follow Me, let him first deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me”. This they have been trying to implement with blood when all they have to do is put their ego aside and get to the business of helping people, solving problems. What is an ego, it is an identity, usually a false identity, like wanting to be a Taliban. All that talk about a Taliban wanting to be Taliban, while diseases and malnutrition are killing their people is crap. If they were ready to forgo being a Taliban or whatever they pride themselves as identity and get down to the business of helping people, looking for solution all of that bloodshed could be avoided. This is why Jesus said that the Son of Man must be lifted up, the sign of the cross must first be lifted up, the denial of the self and the care of others must come first; that is the future of humanity.
Easier say than done, but the whole challenge is in the implementation. There is no two way about it, we know what the problem is and what the solution to the problem is, the question is how do you go straight to the solution. We know that they are lagging behind and why they lag behind. They are a problem because they lag behind; they are a problem because they are the tail and they are a problem because they are so far away from the head, they cannot go where the head is going. They lag behind because they are holding on to the past. They are holding on to the past because it is easier for them to hold on to the familiar rather than facing the unknown, the future. You can stop wasting American blood and others by telling them to take up their cross. Hence they do that they will stop being the tail and become part of the head. Humanity is moving forward rather they want it or not, sooner they can get on board, the sooner we can stop the bloodshed. We can stop beating around the bush and gets straight to the solution; that is deny themselves and take up their cross. They cannot take up their cross until they first deny themselves. Soon as they stop being princes in the house of Sad and Taliban or whatever else they named themselves and get down to the business of saving lives, improve living conditions for people the sooner the world will be a better place.
As Moses lift up the serpent in the desert as so the Son of man must be lifted up”; hence they take up their cross and embrace their humanity all struggle will cease. They will not stay in the past and be the tail but move up to the future where the head is moving. Imagine every country is a snake, the head is trying to move forward and the tail is refusing to move along; this is what is happening in the world today. Take Afghanistan for example, it is a snake and the Taliban are those that made up the tail of the snake, resisting to move along where the head is going, consequently the whole country becomes part of the tail of humanity resisting to move along where humanity is heading. So Afghanistan becomes the tail dragging humanity behind. There are hosts of other countries similar to Afghanistan, the story is the same; “humanity is like a large elongated snake crawling its way up through time”; the tail are the countries that are so far away from the countries that are ahead in the head. These countries must pump up knowledge and nutrient into those countries that are far behind, countries like the US and Europe are helping them moving along. See: if your country is head or tail
