“A nation must think of its neighbors before it thinks of itself.” posted by Ranu

This morning while reading a novel written by Ayn Rand , I stumbled on these lines:

“A nation must think of its neighbors before it thinks of itself.”

These words suddenly woke me up, I thought how wonderful this thought is, but can this be possible, has there been any evidence that this is the way nations think?

I’m not thinking from a political standpoint but as a human, who is tormented to witness all the atrocities committed by stronger nations against their weaker neighbors. As I happen to belong to one of the weaker nations, I tend to think why is there no justice in this world?

When the universe was created, did the creator ever think what sort of a place it would be? Perhaps not or else some restrictions would be placed on humans: such as  stop taking  land belonging to weaker nations, I think the consequence has to be mentioned as well.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this nice post. I’ve been told that our highest role in life is nothing but being of service to humanity. Ann Rand’s quote reminds me of this.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. It is a wonderful thought Ranu. There is always a spillover effect. In fact the world has become so small that even events that happen on the other side of the world will somehow and at sometime have some consequences in many countries.
