"Are you talking about the history of our republic?" I asked.
Steve nodded. "I am talking about everything in our history that shines brightly. I am talking about names that stand out like stars in that history, like the names of Gottfried Leibnitz, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and others."
"That includes the history of the very founding of our republic," I added.
Steve just nodded and smiled.
"And those names are not just a part of our history," I continued. "The founding of our republic is a part of the history of humanity. The founding of the first true nation state republic in the world, is one of the great humanist achievements in the universal history of mankind. That event makes all of their achievements a part of the image of every human being. In these achievements, and in the good that resulted from them, we see an image of the substance of our humanity; even an image of ourselves. We should find a great deal of strength in that."
"In this sense," Heather added, "I should see those names not only as bright spots in American history, but also in the history of the world pertaining to all mankind where they stand like precious jewels together with other such names, like that of Dante, Cusa, Plato, Socrates, Pythagoras, or modern names like Gauss, Schiller, Shakespeare, List, Mozart, and so on."
Steve kept on nodding and smiling and slowly repeated the names of Gottfried Leibnitz, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin Roosevelt. He spoke in a reverent tone of voice.
Indira, too, spoke up again. "I take it that there is actually no such thing as a uniquely German history, or Russian history, or Indian history, or Chinese history. I take it that these are all really subsets of the universal history of mankind in which the strength of our universal humanity comes to light, that we all share."
I applauded her. "I would even say that if one understands just one of these great geniuses of our humanity," I added in reference to what Heather had said, "then one understands a little more about one's own humanity and about the humanity of mankind, which is one and the same thing."
I also suggested that if one really understands one of these geniuses, like Gauss, for instance, one also understands necessarily all the other geniuses like Plato, Nicolaus of Cusa, Abraham Lincoln, or Franklin Roosevelt. "There may not be a commonality between them in the technical sense, which is actually unimportant," I said. "What is important is the greater commonality of their humanity, of the good that unites them all into one. That is where our strength lies, in the unfolding Principle of the universal unity of good, which is the hallmark of the humanity of mankind and its universal marriage to one another as human beings."
I glanced at Steve and smiled. "Yes, that is where our strength lies, and our immortality," I affirmed. "That is also where the fondi are most deeply exposed, because they have no humanity. Their existence is not rooted in any one the principles of the universe, much less in the divine principle of the universal unity of good. They have rejected their humanity. They exist without a principle. The reaction of their humanity is reflected in the rage of their emptiness. Likewise, they exist without power. They come to us as beggars to give them power over us. So far we have complied and done their bidding, but this can be undone. We can stop to bow to our executioners. We can revive our history in which we have taken this courageous stand several times already. We can do this globally, since these historic achievements are a part of mankind's universal history."
"If you were to talk to a Russian about Lincoln, for instance," said Steve to me, "he would be able to understand what you are saying. Russia's history is very much intertwined with our own history. He may proudly acknowledge that Tsar Alexander II had offered to put the entire Russian Navy under the command of President Abraham Lincoln, should Britain dare to enter the Civil War in support of the fondi's Confederacy. He may proudly acknowledge that this commitment by Russia to the universal good had probably saved the United States. One can even say that this commitment may have helped save humanity later on from the hands of Hitler, which would not have been possible without the United States."
"The history of humanity is profoundly rich in people's devotion to universal good," I commented in support of Steve's suggestion. "Franklin Roosevelt took a bankrupt and broken nation and turned it into the richest nation on earth to the envy of the entire world. This wasn't just his achievement. This was the achievement of the entire nation; of the American nation's devotion to universal good. This profound economic achievement was made at a time when the nation had fielded eighteen million soldiers overseas to liberate the world from the cancer of Hitler's synarchist horde that had crippled already all of Europe and northern Africa. That kind of achievement of a people is a substantial historic achievement that stays on the books of humanity forever. That is also a huge foundation that we can built on, to achieve the final victory over synarchism and over the looting of society, and over imperialism."
"Yes, that is something profound we can built on," Indira agreed. "All of that happened, and I don't think it has really been forgotten. It is a part of the history of humanity as a whole; the history of every human being. If we can mobilize a worldwide acknowledgement of that history, focusing on the brightest examples of our human capacity for good, we may have a chance. I have already experienced a little of that in India; actually more than just a little. The fondi have always been committed to destroy this history of good. They certainly are committed to destroying America that symbolized it, just as ancient Rome was committed to destroying the Christ idea by nailing its representative to the cross and throwing the Christians to the lions in the arenas to be ripped apart alive. It's all done in order the discredit the very notion of the divinity of man. Today's synarchists, unfortunately, are much worse than the Roman fascists had ever had been."
"I don't think we can defeat the synarchists themselves," I interjected. "They have destroyed themselves as a human being, and one can't reason with a non-human being. We can only inspire humanity to rouse itself, at least those of society who have not yet been synarchized, to uplift the standard of government so high that the synarchists become locked out as they no longer fit in. In this way we can get rid of the synarchists and their disciples from the forefront of society. We would be denying them a place to exist, together with their godfathers, the fondi. In this way, perhaps, we can purge synarchism from society, or more correctly, society will do this by its own accord."
"We can start the ball rolling towards this," said Steve, "by making the synarchists appear incredibly small in the eyes of society, as they really are. We can force the 'end of history' on them, that they want to force on us. We have it in our hands to make good today what the Renaissance powers had failed to do in 1511, when they failed to eradicate the Venetian Empire once they had them totally in their grip, If only that hadn't been persuaded by the Venetians to relent! Synarchism might have never been developed."
"Unfortunately, it was developed," I interrupted Steve. "Still, with this global approach of developing a higher sense of humanity around the world, which deprives the fondi and the synarchists/terrorists their playground in the world, we can win this time if we commit ourselves to do that."
