Nature and the politics

Nationalities and states were formed by people as a result of the progress of civilizations. A state or a country is a specific geographical area which has a unique environmental and weather condition. Within a country there is a unique method of resource utilization and setting up society by the people. That is how that unique population is creating a unique cultural environment.   
            Even today the agricultural lifestyle is more common in most of countries. Farming and animal husbandry are environmental friendly. Co-operation of the society was conspicuous and people considered the social responsibilities as essential things. In the past the political status of all countries were based on social responsibilities and national goals. Within a country the total population followed the leader and the leader was the most responsible person for protecting the nationality with its whole background. That kind of leaders had nature friendly policies for their politics and even for their lives. They took the responsibility of protecting their followers and the natural environment which is attaching to their own culture.
            When the economical systems of most countries become industrialized, the concept of development came out. People became selfish and different groups of people were appeared with different expectations. Privacy became important for them rather than the co-operation of the society. As a result of that politics with responsible leaderships were replaced by the liberal democracy. Liberal democracy doesn’t teach the leaders to do their politics based on nationalities, cultures, morality and nature friendly ideologies. It teaches the leaders to prepare different groups of people to promote their own sets of activities. On the other hand liberal democracy teaches the leaders to satisfy all of the selfish people with different expectations rather than gathering the population around common ideologies. Present generation consider that living close to the nature and traditional lifestyles are obstacles for the progress of their lives. Life styles of the present generation are also complicated and people are not sensitive enough to understand the environmental values, cultural and social positive values. The concept of development is important than protecting environment for the present generation. Development is based on commercial goals. This kind of a situation is prompting present political leaders to do their politics based on non environmental friendly economical systems. No meaning of talking about protecting environment without developing an environmental friendly way of thinking. We must give our priority to live with responsibilities and we must think of establishing responsible leaderships too.
