By Sayyid Mujtaba Musavi Lari - XKP

We have visible many a country and one who it seems that lived below sure stipulations, but we witnessed how chosen participants or teams between them excelled and took the lead within the box of civilization.

Among those teams are those that deserted considering and followed the behavior of blaming each occasion of their lives on “luck”. whilst those teams face any scenario which calls for them to mirror, they only say: “It is our luck”, “Amazing how’ coincidences occur”,

“Strange is that this existence, not anyone can violate its rules”!!

Yet if we take a while to mirror in this factor, we find that neither success nor coincidences are components in inflicting failure; the main vita/factor which frequently factors failure is “ill manners”. Germany, for instance, after WWII was once not anything greater than a handful of ashes and particles. this present day Germany is without doubt one of the top business international locations. specialists credits this exceptional development to the experience of accountability and keep an eye on which the Germans felt thereafter; no longer that they have got higher minds or are extra inventive than different international locations. therefore, it really is such a lot actual to assert that the development of any countries, together with fabric development, is reliant upon its sturdy behavior and morality. This truth has been confirmed all through background, elimination any doubt that social behavior is an element sooner or later of civilizations.

On the opposite hand we detect that the character of a guy will depend on his features and values. for this reason, guy merits the identify of”humanitarian”for owning such features, with out which he doesn't vary from animals.
