Every Known Situation by Thaddeus Jerome Winters is a very interesting essay about world peace and getting along with each other. It seems to stem from a biblical thought of sharing all things and removing any foolish thoughts from our minds. We are to remove these foolish thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts, and by this the author maintains that we will all get along with each other. He posits that many of the conflicts in the world are due to arguments over material possessions. By sharing all things, he says, everyone would have enough. This may work for food and clothing, but what about when one person has valuables and another does not? There may not be enough gold to go around, for instance, but if the person holding it has no real need for it and only wants it as security or as a status symbol, one can see that problems will ensue.
Winters also proposes a theory whereby we receive unexplained guidance from God and thereby our minds are magically reprogrammed. However, he fails to realize one important point. A decision must be made by the believer to believe, else he will not renew his mind with the Word of God and will not transform himself. In Every Known Situation, Winters includes two poems that seem to capture the essence of the problem he has observed in the world, that of the universal pain of the human condition. In presenting this pain, he states the problem and then goes on to solve it with this equality concept. His view may be overly simplistic, but is intriguing and gave me a lot to think about.
