Every region of the planet had a beginning, a history, and a culture since the dawn of human civilization. There were various organizations and beliefs before to our current period, each with their own strengths and values. But as people often take pride in their own beliefs to demonstrate who is right and wrong, this also contributes to our problem of ethnocentrism, in which we judge other cultures using prejudices derived from our own norms and customs. This can cause discord and division in our planet. It is a problem that has existed ever since the beginning of human development. However, despite the efforts of many, we continue to strive to find a compromise between the two factions. I do feel that as we move forward day by day, we are getting closer to creating this world free of prejudice. I believe that the only way for us to comprehend and accept the distinctions of each group is if we have an open mind and the capacity to observe the world outside of our own standards.
