Once you realize that you can't in them all, you start choosing your battles wisely - so that you will win the big war. You can do this smartly by first dropping those which have little to no long term consequences, and then weighing out the benefits versus costs if you must fight any battles at all. Nonetheless, at some stage in life you also begin to appreciate that the purpose of your life is way above and beyond these fighting and winning games. And you become wise to think about and strategize the "win-win" situations that would make you and your opponent triumphant. Lest we forget, life is too short to worry about warring. Real wisdom of life is to turn around the battles into a "win-win" scenarios, and life is measured by how effectively and how often you accomplish it.

One of the commonalities between many movies that come from Asian subcontinent is their strange and distasteful sense of humor to make fun of disabled, fat, ugly and less fortunate people , in general. It's a shocking observation that is truly disturbing, when you thin about it. Making fun of fat people won't make anybody any thinner, likewise making fun of ugly people won't make them any prettier either. Also, making fun of unsuccessful people won't necessarily make the mocker more successful. So why movie-makers and actors stoop to such low level of humor? It's best to leave those fellow human beings in the hands of the Sureme Power who created them. And the hard-hearted movie-makers and actors should, instead of making fun of people, work on improving themselves. We all are God's Children, and we must treat each other with respect and dignity.

But a few others are like stars which travel one defined path: no wind reaches them, they have within themselves their guide and path." I like this quote, because it is so enlightening and powerful. It's also a constant reminder that you are the Star, and you must maintain your character - no matter what others say or do. Also not to forget that the Star does have ability to turn into Supernova, which brightens the Universe with such a powerful light that can only come from millions of Suns. Always strive to be that shining Star, and ultimately Supernova, to illuminate the world.

One of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them: It is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. Anyone who is capable of getting themselves into a position of power should on no account be allowed to do the job. Another problem with governing people is people.

One quick and effective solution to the global economic crisis is a global economic and political reset. A global economic reset means that world leaders can come together to agree on debt forgiveness to all nations and restructuring of the global economy. Friends and enemies alike, no exceptions. To be fair to nations with lesser debts, they could be compensated on a ratio basis to enjoy treasury surpluses. A new international trade and reserve currency will probably be established to create a fair global economic system and to implement the reset. This could bring a new era of global prosperity and socioeconomic exchange. This is a much better alternative than currency wars, international hostilities and continuous risks of global socioeconomic shocks.
