A Nation of Values

The global community tends to prefer authoritarianism as their standard choice of political system. Democracy is a mere exception, emerged once in a while by experiments of little success.

A woman observes a mural painting of the state symbol of Garuda in Pasar Minggu, Jakarta, Sunday (2/2/2020). This mural intends to remind people of the importance of the values of Pancasila to the life of the nation and the state.

Pope Francis considers nature to be his best teacher. “Rivers don’t drink their own water; trees don’t eat their own fruit; the Sun doesn’t shine for itself; a flower’s fragrance is not for itself. Living for each other is the rule of nature. We are all born to help each other.”

Men are born special, with the mission of preserving the universe. Their soul is like the sun that spreads compassion in an upward motion in the sky. If the light dims, the world will enter the night; humanity will plunge into the valley of animal instincts. Look inside and see how high our degree of humanity is.
