Failures to achieve security within the traditional military paradigm --- have not and cannot be corrected within the traditional military paradigm. The traditional military paradigm is flawed because it is based upon false assumptions, attitudes, beliefs and convictions; e.g., 1. The assumptions that security CAN BE ACHIEVED BY US UNILATERALLY; without cooperating with enemy people who are identified and labeled as inherently "EVIL" people --- and are worthy of destruction; disintegration. 2. The attitude that "we are better than they are"; i.e., superior beings in the eyes of our God. 3. The belief that our inadequacies in our past unilateral efforts to achieve security for ourselves at their expense --- have been due to inadequacies in our weapons systems and our unilateral destructive powers. 4. The convictions that we are smart enough and powerful enough to have unilateral access to enough resources within Space-Ship-Earth to overcome our past inadequacies in our weapons systems and unilateral destructive powers. The traditional foundations of our traditional military paradigm for our achieving security through unilateral efforts --- is flawed because it fails to take into account the following facts-of-life within our cosmos: 1. We are utterly dependent upon the integrity of Space-Ship-Earth as a whole astronomically isolated ecosystem. 2. Space-Ship-Earth's integrity depends in essential ways upon the integrities of countless different inter- related species --- which cannot long survive in isolation without each other. 3. Meaningful survival depends upon cooperation, far more than upon unilateral actions. 4. It is clear that there is no accessible place apart from Space-Ship-Earth where humans can go to survive in any meaningful way --- independent of humans' survival within Space-Ship-Earth. 5. It is clear that our traditional military paradigm for achieving unilateral-security-for-ourselves at the expense-of-other-people who are fundamentally- "different"-and-"evil" --- is based upon the following DISINTEGRATIVE-ELEMENTS of our traditional ways of trying- to-"get-ahead" at the expense-of-other-people-and-living- beings: Threats, Domination, Coercion, Violence, Secrecy, Destructions, Dishonesty, Collusions, Addictions, Coalitions, Power-Concentrations, Abuses, Pretentiousness, Arrogance, Self-Righteousness, Unlimited-Resource- Consumptions, etc. 6. We are dependent upon many limited-resources within Space-Ship-Earth and have not been honest with ourselves and others about the fact that our Population-Explosion will exhaust many of Space-Ship- Earth's limited-resources --- if we do not ourselves cooperate and take the necessary humane initiatives required to stop the EXPONENTIAL-EXPANSION-OF-HUMANITY in humane ways. 7. The longer we wait to cooperate and take the humane initiatives suggested above --- the more difficult it will become to move in the direction of cooperation, honesty, civility, and collaborative success. 8. Continuing to celebrate thoughtlessly our past military service and "successes" --- will lead to future total personal and communal disintegrations, no matter how superior we feel and think we are. 9. Time is running short for the whole crew of Space-Ship-Earth. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
