Why is the world in trouble? Why can't nations,towns, family be at peace?
And notice that Albert does not tell us who to understand or what to understand. We can assume he means understanding others.
Sounds nice but it does not work. It has never worked in the entire history of the world.
Can we cut to the chase here with a wildly unpopular view?
It is unpopular because it is not humanly devised.
As with charity, solutions always begin with self. If we are looking outside ourselves for someone to blame you are looking in the wrong direction.
Easier said than done as we always, without exception, need to blame someone else no matter who we are.
So, here is what we must understand and trust me on this, it will be extremely unpopular:
"Behold, the hand of the Lord is not too short to save, neither is His ear too heavy to hear.
But your iniquities separate between you and your God, and your sins have caused Him to hide His face from you that He not hear.
For your hands were defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken falsehood, your tongue mutters injustice.
No one calls sincerely, and no one is judged faithfully; trusting in vanity and speaking lies, conceiving injustice and begetting wickedness.
They hatched vipers' eggs, and they weave spider webs; whoever eats of their eggs shall die, and what hatches, emerges a viper.
Their webs shall not become a garment, neither shall they cover themselves with their deeds; their deeds are works of wickedness, and there is a deed of violence in their hands.
Their feet run to evil, and they hasten to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of wickedness; robbery and ruin are in their paths.
The way of peace they do not know, and there is no justice in their paths; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever goes on it knows no peace.
Therefore, justice is far from us, and righteousness does not overtake us; we hope for light and behold there is darkness, for brightness, but we walk in gloom.
We tap a wall like blind men, and like those who have no eyes we tap; we have stumbled at midday like in the darkness of night; we are in dark places like the dead.
We all growl like bears, and like doves we moan; we hope for justice but there is none, for salvation but it has distanced itself from us.
For our transgressions against You are many, and our sins have testified against us, for our transgressions are with us, and our iniquities-we know them.
Rebelling and denying the Lord, and drawing away from following our God, speaking oppression and perverseness, sprouting and giving forth from the heart words of falsehood.
And justice has turned away backward, and righteousness stands from afar, for truth has stumbled in the street, and straightforwardness cannot come.
And truth is lacking, and he who turns away from evil is considered mad, and the Lord saw and was displeased for there is no justice."
excerpted from Yeshayahu- Isaiah - Chapter 59
But this is the simple answer and the history of the world shows that people just have to second guess and make up their own convoluted solutions(which are always the same solution ), which, since creation have not worked one single time.

Recent votes around the nation were simply about labeling foods that include genetically modified organisms and aborted fetus cells. That is all the referendums were about.
It is not about whether or not foods can be modified or if they should be banned but about whether or not you have the simple right to know.
You have the right to know other ingredients so what are they worried about?
Why is this such a desperate thing for those who are pro-modification.
Those who want labeling are being labeled as fringe elements who are weird and crazy.
This is a standard propaganda technique: assault the character of those you fear.
"No widely accepted science supports the idea that GMOs are inherently dangerous to people’s health or the environment. To proponents, including many in the agribusiness industry, opposition to GMOs is nothing more than a dangerous mania, and the people in the grip of it are akin to those who refuse to vaccinate their children or who deny that human activity is changing the Earth’s climate ."stated Molly Ball.
No widely accepted science supports that GMOs are NOT dangerous either.
The AAAS whose research Ball is alluding to has been accused of stumping for Monsanto.
Personally I can imagine the propaganda that was spread abroad by those opposing Sister Kenny whose revolutionary treatments for polio were actually working. The medical establishment wanted her out of the way.
People were burned at the stake for balking at the flat world concept that was endorsed by mainline science.
But name calling and labeling are the main ways you shut up those who could ruin things for you. "truthers", "birthers","racists" and etc.
I often wonder what people who label others are afraid of hearing.
It is troubling that place after place is turning down the labeling on voting day when poll after poll shows that the vast majority want it. This indicated something rotten is going on.
More to keep an eye on here.
The public has the right to know what they are putting into their body.
