For some time, I have considered that the success of the western countries led by Great Britain has been largely the result of having combined spirituality and democracy in a sensitive and combined manner from the 15th Century when the Anglican Church was formed as a Protestant movement and tremendous development took place to the worship of God through Jesus Christ and the development of psalms and hymns and proverbs and adages that formed the backbone of the development of the people.
Please do not disregard this discussion as me taking an opportunity to preach about Jesus Christ or any other god or goddesses as I am a Hindu and have a philosophy rather than a religion. Essentially however, human civilisation came about from my perception when theism developed 40,000 years ago and gradually people became conscious of the need to socialise in a harmonious manner which generated the democratic spirit among the population and its leaders.
Nowhere on Earth is this more profound than in our own island of the United Kingdom with its traditions and heritage that are too numerous for me to go into in-depth detail here in this introductory post.
We must not lose sight that spirituality and democracy go hand in hand and strengthens a nation, not weakens it. As such we support Faith schools as Conservatives and wish the same to take place in State-education back into what we used to call Comprehensive education.
Children who go to State schools must not be deprived of the same basic formula for combining the ethos of learning material matters within a spiritual dimension and taught the essentials of how to become a good citizen when they grow up and always be interested in politics so that they understand what democracy is and how it should be sustained for the foreseeable future.
If there is not this re-orientation of the State education system, our children will grow up wild and this will lead to crimes and misdemeanours for they would not understand how to be civil and obedient to the law enforcement processes of the nation. They will go about protesting in the streets, disobeying the laws as happened recently on the Sarah Everard vigil and the church congregation last Friday (Easter) when Police were placed in an impossible position of conscience to disperse the crowds.
In my estimation all this can be prevented to lead to less crimes like destroying monuments such as that of Edward Coulson in Bristol and the case of urination of a person on the statue of Winston Churchill a few months ago.
Unless children across the board of education are taught civility as spirituality-incorporated morality, they will grow up distrusting the State and cause disruptions thereby preventing economic development that the nation needs if it is to become a Great nation that we should all try and aspire too.
Your comments would be most welcome.
