Trapped in a system

I am here in a country at war.
In a war I do not want.

I do not want to die.
My enemy does not want to die either.
Why are we enemies?

Is it our choice?
Or was it the choice made by others?

Why do we feel hate?
I do not like to feel hate.
My enemy probably does not like it either.

If we had been born elsewhere,
we might have been friends.

How can we stop being enemies?
We seem to be trapped.
Trapped in a system that produces enemies.
For a great many reasons: power,
money, political and religious beliefs.

We might hurt or even kill each other.
Not because we want to,
but because of the system.


Danellandia – Pax 21 was created on 28 March, 2004. It is based on discussions about this world and its many problems with people from different backgrounds, countries, religions and age.

Danellandia defined 25 human values as the basis for its campaign to make this world a better and more just place in many fields of human activities: politics, economics, the media, personal relationships, education, Nature care…

You can help to promote these values by sharing the material on this site.

Become a Danellandian by promoting human values to  boost peace.

This world needs people and leaders who put humanity first and not money or power. People and leaders who unite others rather than create tension, division and conflict.

Strong human values are a passport to a sustainable future.

The world of Peace can become a reality!
