Ryuho Okawa, the mega-selling author and spiritual leader, offers a roadmap for achieving world peace in his latest book The Laws of Justice, an insightful text proposing unique solutions to world conflicts.
The Laws of Justice
What is global justice from the perspective of the Supreme God? Ryuho Okawa bestows an enlightened perspective that peers beyond religious, political, societal, economic and academic disparities to mend the ambiguities of worldly conflict and reinforce God's infinite love.
Nowadays, the world is facing an unprecedented period of chaos with conflicts raging including international terrorism, the rise of ISIS, the Syrian Civil War and refugee crisis, the military expansion of China and nuclear development by North Korea. During the eight years of the Obama Administration, the world order has begun to fluctuate greatly as the American government has led from behind and abdicated its role as the world's policeman. The volatile nature of the 2016 American election further complicates the international business, economic and diplomatic climate.
Challenging Conventional Thinking of the Definition of World Justice
Defining Worldwide Justice for solving conflicts between nations and religions is more critical than ever. Global Visionary, best-selling author and founder of Happy Science, Ryuho Okawa challenges conventional thinking of how global justice should be viewed from secular and religious perspectives in his recently released book, The Laws of Justice: How We Can Solve World Conflicts and Bring Peace. By combining six of the author's lectures given in Japan, The Laws of Justice has delivered religious, spiritual, political and economic reasoning guided by what Okawa states is "Universal Truths". It navigates world leaders, academic thinkers and thoughtful readers to best analyze how they can reach Okawa's ultimate goal: to help people find true happiness and bring justice and prosperity to the world. Okawa asks readers to expand their view of justice by considering world events from the standpoint of God.
How We Can Reconcile Two Political Trends in the World
"There are two major trends opposing each other in the world today. One centers on the United States. This force is comprised of countries that want to support and spread the ideologies of democracy, liberalism (liberty), fundamental human rights and market economies," Okawa wrote in The Laws of Justice. "The other is a force comprised of the countries that will suffer if these ideologies spread across the world, because their ways of thinking and methods differ. There is a battle between these two forces. For example, some countries would not be happy if democracy was pushed upon them. Their names may contain the words like 'democratic' or 'people's republic', but those names do not reflect the reality of what is happening in those countries."
"In terms of religion, the era of monotheistic religions has continued for two or three thousand years and there is a tendency to consider monotheism to be pure and non-monotheistic religions to be muddled and defiled" Okawa states. "Of course, there is nothing wrong with monotheistic religions that worship a universal God who loves humankind, but there are also those that worship a specific god who only protects one particular ethnic group. Forcing other ethnic groups to believe in their own god would mean that one particular group could completely dominate others. That would be unreasonable.
