  • The killing of Osama Bin Laden is a failure to me

  • because the negative retroactions of that will be enormous!

  • It's the amount of hatred and people

  • that will die as a result of that.

  • So the killing of one man never destroys a value system.

  • It destroys that person, but the value system goes on.

  • Racism, bigotry, stupidity

  • are part of the problem. Stupidity means

  • lack of information regarding certain types of problems.

  • When you read in a book that revenge is sweet,

  • and if that takes as a system, it hurts people.

  • Therefore, all that type of literature has to go.

  • To the extent that we raise our children

  • with artificial values, that will produce harm in the future.

  • You think, "Well they're only children.

  • I don't think it's that necessary."

  • Well, war, guns, possession of guns

  • are partly nurtured by our culture.

  • And guns give people a sense of power,

  • a false sense of power. Real sense of power

  • is delivery of information that's relevant to people.

  • Of course you don't sense it right away.

  • You don't feel a glorious feeling doing that.

  • But really, it's a long term investment.

  • And all short term investments may appear to solve problems,

  • but they only perpetuate problems into the future.

  • A major problem with the world's people today,

  • is they believe that human values and behavior

  • and decisions are made within a human being.

  • Actually this is not the case.

  • That's a major cause of most the world's problems.

  • It is the environment they are reared in.

  • If you cannot understand that, think of the language you use

  • and the values you have and the attitudes about a 'good old USA'.

  • If you were brought up in Iran, your value system

  • would be different. Your language would be different.

  • Therefore, it is not within the human being to know the difference

  • between what you would call operant behavior

  • or useful behavior or useful values.

  • All your values are inculcated by environment: the books you read,

  • the motion pictures you see, the role models you have.

  • Therefore, human beings are not, I repeat this,

  • are not responsible for their values.

  • They are learned.

  • And if you don't understand that,

  • you should become more familiar with the effects

  • of environment on human behavior.

  • The very fact that they used to burn witches in Salem, Massachusetts,

  • might mean that within that area,

  • most people were brought up with such a value system.

  • The notions of heaven and hell come from books and other people.

  • Your language comes from your environment.

  • Possibly the difference between a Roman and a Greek

  • would be the environment they are reared in.

  • If you don't understand that,

  • you need a lot of education, a lot of information,

  • and you'll have to seek it.

  • We have to seek information that's relevant to people,

  • not information based upon opinions, folkways,

  • hand-down values or feelings of 'good' and 'bad'.

  • All those feelings of good, bad, right and wrong are all learned.

  • Everything is learned.

  • If you still don't understand that

  • look back at the words you use, and you'll find

  • that they're words that you've picked up from your environment.

  • An Englishman speaks with an English accent,

  • not because he's English, but because he's been exposed

  • to that environment and those sounds of words.

  • An Australian speaks like an Australian

  • because he's brought up in an environment that utilizes that dialog.

  • A southerner speaks different than a northerner.

  • And if you still don't understand that, that's the best I can do.

  • We reflect our culture.

  • Osama Bin Laden is dead.

  • But the value system that produced him is not.

  • It is quite alive.

  • That goes for the Nazis,

  • the Klu Klux Klan, the White Citizens Council.

  • The value system is still alive.

  • What is needed is not assassinations,

  • not murder, not killing.

  • No armies or navies to solve problems.

  • What is really needed is a change in our values.

  • I believe in the Bible you'll find

  • a section where Jesus Christ mentions,

  • "He who is without sin,

  • let him cast the first stone."

  • I don't know what the word 'sin' means, but I do know this.

  • Erroneous values can cause

  • unbelievable suffering amongst people.

  • And we, our nation, like other nations

  • are mainly like children, that do not have answers,

  • that do not have solutions to problems.

  • Whereby, many solutions are violent

  • and they do not solve problems.

  • What is really needed is a change in values,

  • not the election of this governor or that governor.

  • There's no change in values in that.

  • By change in values I mean living in accordance with

  • the natural capacity,

  • that is, the carrying capacity of the earth.

  • And if we violate that, there are all kinds of problems.

  • When you violate the laws of nature,

  • which are really inviolable,

  • they will produce other negative effects.

  • We don't study what the negative retroaction will be

  • on the assassination of Osama Bin Laden,

  • but we're building a catalog of problems up ahead.

  • I think that the solution to problems take longer.

  • Of course, a sane solution takes many years.

  • And that is, to arrive at a value system

  • that supports nature, the earth

  • and all the people that live on this earth.

  • If they all go off in different directions

  • and evolve different value systems,

  • there's got to be trouble,

  • and you cannot solve problems by killing people.

  • Although most of you believe that 'revenge is sweet'.

  • It is only sweet to the naive and childlike attitudes

  • whereby we feel good when we get rid of a certain person

  • identified with the problem.

  • That does not solve the problem.

  • If you yourselves as Americans,

  • were brought up in that country where those values are dominant,

  • you will support those values.

  • It isn't killing people that solves problems.

  • It's outgrowing values that no longer work,

  • and this is what we have to identify.

  • If you cannot identify the values that do not work,

  • you cannot undo them.

  • Only through education can we change human values.

  • And what we have to do is approach nations

  • and share with them some of our values, if we can.

  • And if you don't know how to do that, you have to find

  • the means for doing that.

  • It is absolutely essential that we find the means

  • for bridging the difference between nations.

  • And the nearest thing that I know of

  • that can solve those problems

  • is to arrive at decisions, rather than make them.

  • Arriving at decisions meaning

  • put all your decisions to test, see if they work.

  • Use scientific scales of performance.

  • And in that manner, we can probably arrive at

  • closer agreements with nations.

  • I believe that all nations need the same thing :

  • clean air, clean water, arable land,

  • and medical and health security,

  • and access to food and the necessities of life.

  • If we fail to work together,

  • attempting to solve these problems,

  • I feel the problems will continue

  • in much more vicious ways,

  • because we are not touching, or not addressing

  • the actual manifestation

  • of how these values come into being.

  • And it's only through careful study, not feelings of revenge,

  • careful study, that will enable people

  • to outgrow systems that are no longer relevant.

  • What is needed is a value system

  • that coincides with the nature of human need.

  • Now not only that, but humans are part of the environment.

  • Therefore, the environment is part of human needs,

  • whether we recognize it or not.

  • Another part of human need is the differences in values.

  • If people all have multiplicity of values

  • that differ from one another, there will be conflict.

  • How do we go about selecting a value system that makes sense?

  • And how do we go about presenting a value system

  • to people who know nothing about such a value system?

  • I think the best way to do it

  • is demonstration with films.

  • In films, we can show how a person feels a volcano is angry.

  • We have to show those movies

  • and the sincerity of the witchdoctor talking about the solution.

  • And we have to show the sincerity of Romans

  • feeding Christians to lions.

  • And we have to point out a group of people stoning a woman.

  • And when Jesus comes in, he says:

  • "He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone."

  • All of us are erroneous in our values

  • due to the early part of our historical upbringing.

  • We are given a set of values that do not work.

  • Proof: We have war, recession,

  • hunger, poverty, starvation, illness.

  • And if our society were oriented

  • toward the well-being of our fellow human beings,

  • I cannot see these problems as being dominant,

  • in a society where every man works for himself,

  • individual incentive, working for one's self.

  • If people worked for one's self',

  • there wouldn't be the electric light.

  • There wouldn't be engines and powered vehicles.

  • There wouldn't be electrification,

  • and reservoirs and water purification.

  • These are processes that help all people.

  • And processes that help single people

  • is a very primitive value system carried into this century

  • which is really not necessary.

  • However, it appears that humans

  • do not seem to change or improve their value system

  • until there is utter failure of that value system.

  • People trained as a scientist tend to pause

  • a little bit, before they accept an idea,

  • a little more than the average person.

  • They try to evaluate and they figured: "Well, a man is using

  • the scientific method. He probably draws the correct conclusions."

  • You know when you have faith in somebody, believe in somebody.

  • A scientist doesn't believe in anything,

  • neither accepts, rejects or holds in abeyance;

  • that is, does not make a judgment

  • until verifiable evidence is produced.

  • So killing people is not the solution to any problem

  • at all. War is the maximum expression of ignorance.

  • 'Good' and 'bad' is part of a value system.

  • It has nothing to do with something coming

  • from the inside of a human being.

  • It appears that all evidence shows that intuition does not,

  • and is not based upon innermost feelings.

  • It's not based upon evidence. It's based upon

  • being exposed to erroneous value systems.

  • And where do you start most values?

  • Most human values are erroneous,

  • except when it comes to mathematics, physics, chemistry.

  • They are more appropriate.

  • So I would say if you become familiar with particular books,

  • literature that we have on our website, it may help you.

The killing of Osama Bin Laden is a failure to me
