Knowledge Mobilization (KMb): Multiple Contributions & Multi-Production Of New Knowledge

Peace On Earth Will Not come Through Religion Or Politics – But From Shared Connected Human Knowledge

Beyond

Many people that you meet in life will be out to do nothing but criticize your knowledge.  It’s usually a result of insecurity rather than superiority – and the knowledge that they present is one that they believe is “right” and “true”.

While there’s nothing wrong with challenging other peoples’ knowledge, we must ask ourselves:  why are we doing so?  In trying to be critical of this other person’s knowledge, am I creating understanding or creating a barrier?  Am I trying to combine our knowledge for social benefit and make the world a better place – or am I using knowledge for harm as a weapon? I believe that there are actually very few people who want war and more people who want peace on this earth. I believe the greatest steps towards achieving more peace and less war is through knowledge sharing and recognizing the common, human bond of individual knowledge that everyone has. 

There are people who are angry and violent because that’s the path they’ve chosen – but could it also be that no one has taken time to listen to the knowledge that comes from their personal experiences and try to understand? Sharing knowledge for social benefit and listening to another person’s knowledge can lead to greater understanding far beyond our religious or political beliefs. Once we all find the freedom to be who we are with all our diversity and knowledge on this planet without criticizing the knowledge of others we may be closer to peace on this earth. But it’s something that all of us – every human being – must participate in.  Sadly, this is where the difficulty begins.

I believe peace will come not through religious beliefs or politics.  Personal knowledge is not religion. Personal knowledge is not politics. Knowledge may include religious belief or knowledge may include political thought – but knowledge is something beyond these limiting human constraints.  Knowledge is something vibrant and not constrained that is always growing and changing and evolving.  I believe peace on this earth will come from an ability to learn to be open to the knowledge of everyone as part of our common humanity when we recognize the value of individual to connected human knowledge beyond borders, beyond politics, beyond hatred and ignorance and criticism of what is “right” and “true” to see that knowledge openness and sharing can lead to understanding.  When we attempt to combine our knowledge we can create new knowledge for social benefit to make the world a better place. Knowledge is never limited when it is shared to create new knowledge for social benefit.

When we find the freedom to be who we are no matter what knowledge or quantity of knowledge we have, no matter where we live on this planet – we can begin to move towards peace on earth beyond religious or political differences – beyond hatred and ignorance and criticism of who is “right” and “true”.  We can find the freedom of knowledge from our common humanity and our common bond of knowledge that each of us has by sharing our connected human knowledge to create greater understanding – and finally, peace on earth.
