values in life what do we believe in now in this world
In France we had this century of lights where we only wanted to keep and believe the things we  could explain and understand, then i think by bdoing this we lost a lot of beliefs and magic and miracles that weren t rationnal through the witch hunts , but it is true that at the time we knew little compared to now but also now we know probably so little compare to in 200 yrs- it looks like little by little through the last two hundred yrs we are losing regularly our big values, it started with the split of the state and church then for a long time in the 20 th century we believe in capitalism / socialism and communism and it is now nearly all gone - what do we believe now , are we decadent and this is part of the fall of our society as we have known it for the last 200 yrs ? In France 80 per cent of the population say they are catholic and only 10 per cent actually practice the capitalism was to be controlled by more state intervention and on the left side of politics we wanted less state power what is the situation now? It seems to me that our beliefs have weakened and that for me started as we started to believe in things we can explain and understand , and slowly our beliefs changed and actually weakened over a long period of time Also to illustrate my point I would say that our 2 strongests beliefs at present - namely god and love are irrationnal . we do not explain our very strong faith in god and in the same way , we do not explain the feeling of love though we know we think there is a very special chemistry between the 2 people in love. The next big value for me is to make humanity progress through the progress of each person to become a better person . How is this going to be achieved- how do we achieve peace and live to make the humanity really progress Humanity yes has progress in many aspects but we are still fighting wars wherever we don t have the nuclear bomb , and people display the same weaknesses and faults for the last few thousands yrs .greed / power control  manipulation jealousy use of force to get things - it seems to me that in the broader sense of the term -Humanity is not progressing at all and I am asking myself why? and how we can change this to become a better world where we can be happy , more people happy all the time- share the wealth and stop people starving in some part of the world . It would be nice to believe that we can share wealth throughout the world and save people from starving Put a smile on people s face and inside their heart, The thing is , the big question is ; how we are going to progress when so little has improved fundamentaly - in the last 2500 yrs since the greek created the democratie and the republic and budha and confucius and gandhi and mahomet and how any person at all could kill in the name of religion when all religion tell you not to kill that is the first commandment i feel of all religion as god is love and love is life.I also feel that Jesus came to tell us that god is love and god is the love within us.
