Politics, rigid thought forms, hierargies, skill and democracy

I do not know so much of politics, but it seems that in the old times when Finladn was young, there were more thoughts and ideals leading and nowadays some tv shows with lied looks, not so much sincere facts. his seems to connect with foreigners wanting to learn about Finland arranging things peacefully, and so foreign errors made visible in the media, ruining Finnish ways. And it seems to connect with too rigid forms overruling the freedomof individuals of so the freedom of the people. Politics seeks to be accessible for an as wide audience of Finnish adults as possible, partly for kids too. That means that some normal, often repeated thought and values of the parties are simple and simple in form and try to apply to many things at once. Because they are simple, some good speakers for them are not at all intelligent, more like discussing social people taking opart in everyday life, seeing this and that point as they are told about them and repeating them later. This simplicity is needed in speaking for crowds and media. But it shoudl be also outspokenness in grounds for values, in the pictures of the world used, and not just empty words repeated. For the situations where there aren't so many lsiteners at the same time or when oneassociates with one group only like with some association and it's members, one can then use a more intelligent approach, discuss thing more at lenght, yet not making it a separate endeavour like a mindless idiot would do.
Poltics is also influenced by the need of running a demicracy in the middle of foreign influencies, which may be disguised as the influencues of big companies etc. Foreign countries lack Finnish ground for Finnish decisions, so one task of polityics is to go through the different ground for political decisions in the media and also in smaller circles, to teach them. So politics is a discussion also in thsi sense. Often foreigners are interested in economical benefit. To create economical benefit the wholes in the society which create that benefit ought to be well kept, i.e. whole, well arranged, well working, not exhausting the gorund for such benefit in the future, the society running smoothly at that place, getting support from the other parts of the society and from the workers, using a good understanding in these and so giving the workers and their families also a good life, a good society to live in. This kind of arrangements are a good cultural influence from Finland to abroad, but they should not be copied detailedly but instead their basci grounds understood and new arrangements made in each country by thinking these things through in their country, climate, culture, national character, values of people about what life shoudl be like, what they bother about in their society, what isgood for them, how is a good wuise future quaranteed for the soceity etc. This is not so difficult to think through as it might appear. Just think of one individual or type of individuals in time:why are they wuilling to go to work, what kind of benefits they want, what kind of job they like and how well would they take care of it, what is it's value in the society, how much wage ought they get to get a good life and what other arrangements and possibilities in the society they need, want, which things are good for them and which unwise and ought to be avoided. And so what a good society be like in that climate. What would it bother about, what would it follow, how skilled would it be, what is know about the long time endurancy of such cultural features and benefits, what should they avoid and how they keep way from ruining such things, which areas of life would they specialize into, besatisfied with and who would be eager,s killed and responsible enough to care for the rest and how would the society follow such arrangements, their needs and their need for distance.

Basics of a well working society

A well working society is build on what the people are like, not on the goverment etc. Kind of what the people in their laziness do, that they continue on their old tracks that they are comfortable with, that they learn new things in areas of interest to them and do not bother about everything. So an African does not get a well working African society by travelling to Europe to learn from the European societies well functioning ways and problem solving skills. Insteadan African village has a well working well kept water well, if that is a central value for all the people in that area, if they value a good well highly enough, and if they have the sufficient skills for that in that place and culture. If they do not have the motivation, the well is likely to get spoiled. If most have a high motivation but some want to spoil the well, thoise with a high motivation kill the sabotagers, and so they still have a well working well for drinking water. Also if they traditionally did not have a good well but with extra skill they nowadays could have it and they npwadays and in the future have a high motivation for the well, they are likely to invest in things and skills that make it possible for them to learn the skills for making and maintaining well the well.

Comparing the position sof different professions

In siciences there is a clear hierarchy of who has npticed how much. The technocal, engineering oriented notice the least. The natural sciences have objective thinking skills but largely memorized. Philosophy adds a wider view and more individual skills in objective thinking. Arts and religion seem to rise aboeve them but their position isn'ty as onefold but more likely a different position for each individual, since some individuals have basic skills lacking.

Of women's and men's clishee like position and their clishee like rights

Especially in school age many have misunderstandings and misestimates about women's and men's rights and obligations. Women and men are usually different but not all women alike each other. So women and men have typical rights and obligations which many take as given, but which in fact have grounds on how they behave and what they wish for. So each right is conditional, even if it is a typical right of that gender. Women's rights often are like using well cultivated things in the society, meant for good life, but they are on the condition that you yourself cultivate such thinsg faurly. Men's rights are often of the type that the less able ought to be helped, i.e. adviced by the older ones, professionals etc and given help. They are on teh condition that he does not misuse such differencies in power, skill,position etc, and that he fairly does his share of the obligations. Men and boys often have rights based on being soldier like or in doing healthy good quality, but such rights demand that they use soldier like characteristics in defence of the good of the society, and not against it, and that they really do things in healthy spirit. Women have often rights to influence the lives of others, but those presuppose that one ought to influence with wisdom, wosdom of life, morally and with good will.

Pacifism, civilized ways and the need for an army

It is very common that countries have a well organized civil society plus military service for men. Boys do not always understand how these connect. And especially they do not understand what to think of pacifism, women, moral and evil in these matters from the point of view of c´military service.
Countries have armies. Armies protect the countries and support their interests. That is different from evil running free. Evil means things harmful to the society, so that it is a thing to oppose. Evil does not mean soldiers' virtues, strenght, military power, convincing imago etc which are soldiers' characteristics to aim at. Things are called good because they are useful, good for some purpose. That is why these matters connect to good versus evil.
The rules and practises of the civil society build something for the society, a good society to live in, with a good promising future in the world as we know it. Moral rules seek to prevent from breaking these build things. That is why they sound pacifist. But all the world does not belong to the same group, so that one needs to defend them also from outsiders ruining them, which is what an army is needed for. So at the same time as one tries to avoid breaking things valued in the civil society, at the same time one build strenghts and skills for being able in soldier like things, for being able to defend good life and a good future. Joining together to large grouos greates strenght, and so this defendng goes best in big allegiancies, like the country and it's army, it's allies too.

One can help the more able

Some cultivate the view that one cannot help more intelligent, more skilled and more moral ones than what one oneself is. But that is not at all so. Whenever in human contacts or in groups, it matters a lot what the others are like and how they behave. Like if you are on a trip, it matters that also the children can walk some distancies by themselves. Or hat all carry their part of the things taken along.. And that they offer information. And that they do not attack against moral. That they participate in discussions with the intention to understand, and learn, and take those things morally into account in practise. Also if it a question of protection,one can well protect the more able, since two is usually a bigger opponent than just one, and three is even bigger. And taking part even though not fighting is better than betraying. Behaving in civilized ways it is not so big difference between people of different caliber. Interfering with the lives or responsibilities of others is a different things than helping and doing one's part. I wonder how one can be so mistaken to think that one should interfere even if one does not understand differencies like these?

Moral hierargies

Some more stupid or less moral people think that they are low in a hierargy of the society and so do not need to carry responsibility over their actions. But that is not so. Living in a society their deeds do affect, regardless of whether it was planned to have such effects or not, regardless if it was a social deed or something connected to some fact or value. Deeds tend to have side effects, even major effects on other people with different needs than the person doing the deed. So all need to carry responsibility. One way to carry responsibility is to talk to those who cause disasters to others and teach them or guide them socially. It is not a hierargy, it is just a question of skills and of caring for good life in the society, now and in the future, also for different types of persons than oneself. The arrangements and rules in a society are made on a general levl, so that they make life possibilities godd for all types of people by following the same rule. Regardless of whether one is stupid or not wanting to support some area of life or some style, one is oblidged to carry responsibility of how one affects the society and so also to follow it's wise rules. One common way to carry such responsibility is to avoid affecting major matters of the society and of other persons' lives, and to cooperate socially, and to leave the matters of the society to be decided by civilized wisdom, wisely of course.
