The Pillar of Good Society
As we look up our present society, we are living in the advancement of science and technology, lifting - up our standard of living. The advancement of transportation and communication lead us to a rapid development were people can freely move conveniently.
However, at the same time, we experience the bloody conflict of the war, many people died in the past century and continuously war is going on, anywhere in the world we face this pandemic of covid virus and continuously develop to a high breed of virus.
Moreover, poverty, family breakdowns, sexual transmitted diseases, drug abuse, crime, juvenile violence and many kinds of problem is coming out and lingering in our society. Yet, this entire problem has only a temporary solution. Let’s try to reflect and understand the causes of problem from the basic unit of our society which is the family.
According to Noah Webster wrote in 1970: “Educations in great measure, forms the moral character of men, and moral are the basis of government….It is much easier to introduce and established an effectual penal status the ill effects of a bad system…. The only practicable method to reform mankind is to begin with children.”
Our children are growing up starts in the family. According from the universal values of child education starts already from the time that mother conceive the baby until it give birth where the emotion, psychological, thoughts and action of parents have big influence in the growth of baby in the womb.
Especially the bonding of mother in rearing the baby while still inside the womb has a big influence in the development hearing sounds of mother’s body, recognizing the language sounds, memory development, and eyesight development. If we want that our children become great children, start the education during the pregnancy.
If we want to learn more about this information can easily search it in the books, magazine, internet and anywhere whatever information we want because of the advancement of information technology.
From the birth to 12 years old is the period where children character and personality are not stable or in immature stage that needs to nurture that become stable until the period of adolescence.
I inspired with this article “The Child 10 Commandments” written by Written by Dr. Kevin Leman
When our children growing up properly, emotionally and psychologically stable, mental and physical stability in their adolescence period. The moral and ethical values of the youth maturely develop. We can assure they can be good citizens in our society.
The youth that grow up in the family environment with outstanding moral and ethical values can expand it to be social ethics, business ethics, national ethics and world ethics. We can understand that all moral and ethical laws or values are the expansion of values from the family.
Then religious groups will cultivate and building –up the highest standard of morals and ethics. And the school will properly convey this morals and ethics to all men and women in the world.
It will be the basis of system management and laws in governing the nation, the basis of diplomacy of one nation to another nation and the basis to establish peace and order of the world.
We could have a good system management of environment, fair distribution of wealth, fair sharing of science and technology for every nations of the world, solving the problems of poverty, hunger, malnutrition, crime and any problem that arises in our society.
Also, if we established the highest standards of world ethics, relationship of nation to another nation, we can avoid the global pandemic of corona virus disease that was discovered last December 2019. As well as, we can be able properly manage the environment which we can avoid the worst disasters and calamities which the world experience at this present situation of weather condition.
This pandemic virus, calamities and disaster, the war in any part of the world, and different kind of world suffering is an opening eye for humanity that we need to care, extend our love, and live for the sake of others that will start from us as individual, expanding it in our family, neighbors, society, nation and the world.
