The Barbarians Always Come from the North

It’s rare that southern populations win against northern populations, when it comes to war.

There are only few exceptions in history, and those victories were temporary anyway.
Northern populations envy the art, the sophistication and lifestyle of southerners, to a point of feeling inferior.

The southerners envy the industry, rationality, and discipline of northerners, to a point of feeling inferior.

Nature has forced northerners to be fighters, aggressive. The same nature has made southerners philosophers, artists, careless life enjoyers.

Like in a garden roses are no more important than the Christmas trees. For humans the most difficult is to live in peace with our differences.

(1) In the southern hemisphere, it’s the reverse which is true. Barbarians always come from the South.
(2) Without dealing with the natural insecurities of northerners (scarcity mentality), peace in the world will be difficult to obtain. Southerners should understand that.
(3) If you are a northerner, develop a higher awareness about your scarcity mentality and how it affect your pattern of thinking and behaving.
