If aggression is the power that brings positive change, the world would have changed a lot through all the aggression that has happened and is now happening in many parts of the world. But that is not what we see. Where there is aggression, there is distress. There are more issues, more problems, and more poverty. With aggression, we move backward. Wherever there is aggression, you see that the people have gone backward; at least fifteen to twenty years backward, if not more. Co-operation is key. The world has seen many aggressions which have not given great result. Sometimes, people think war is very good because war can change laws. They think that war can destroy what was there and bring a change of law. But you know, for that to happen, several generations suffers. In this age of information and technology, I think people are intelligent. We don’t need to go through that suffering. I think we are much more intelligent, and much more informed, so we don’t need war. All that we need is awareness.
