Jakarta MUN: Understanding Starts with U
Understanding starts with U. Yes, I mean you!
Me and you, us. We, human, can not live on this planet alone by ourselves as individual. We need each other in order reaching what we want or need.
Passing the salt on the table passage for example. You want to get the salt which on the other side of the table where somebody is sitting just next to it. In the other hand, it is far enough to be reached from where you sit.
There are options to get it. Option A, you ask the “Could you please pass the salt?” question to the person sitting next it. Option B, you stand up from where you sit, walk around the table, get the salt by yourself, go back to your seat, and finally sow the salt on your food.
Let’s say you choose option B and it happens everytime you bump into this kind of situation. But, until when are you going to do the not so effective and efficient way like that?
As the birth of the zoon politikon or sociobiology concept, I see the human always means to reach their goals in the middle of crowded interests of their needs.
It is crowded because there is me-side in every individual and group.
I capture ourselves as sociobiology creature. We are biology. Even reproduction means we need other individual, the opposite of our type . In the other side we are social creature as well that define identity, express it
So existence, interest, and help are three things These are three thing
I found myself as a person that not into music. Moreover, not a big fan of one particular musician, let’s say Michael Jackson. With his songs he stole the world’s affection and earnd the title King of Pop.
Some people may say, even until the day before I write this, that many of his songs have strong social message. And yes, I ever wondered about Michael Jackson’s song lyric Heal The World. The song says,”Make a better place for you and for me
Back again to the understanding part. Change I. From my point of view, I see MUN as a media of understanding.
What is MUN?
MUN, abbreviation of Model United Nations is
Like the actual UN (United Nations)
So, why MUN?
In MUN .
To get people understand what you have in mind and make them do what. Do not make yourself to get the you-never-walk-in-my-shoes moment.
