From the level of friends to nations, in the pandemic the phrase, "Friends first, competition second," took on a grander significance.

One can see "divide and conquer" as a war strategy, yet when internalised within a cooperative group it can come to have a different signification, one closer to "specialise and cooperate to increase the strength of the group" or "divide the task to conquer the objective." When that is applied as one world, then we have won the world, then we see that to thrive international cooperation as one family of humanity is essential for our future.

The roots of international cooperation are part of human biology, how could they be anything else. Trust is earned, not given, and love is built on such trust. It takes time to earn and is easily squandered. Thus, choose your leaders with great care. To build a world of love and trust takes leaders who are completely honest and have the very best of intentions.
