I believe that it is imperative to understand one’s actions to understand someone else’s behavior and patterns. Mutual understanding and mindfulness about oneself can help to fell wise decisions. Reflection, however, also includes understanding how one would like to be treated, how mistreatment has an impact on oneself to prevent unacceptably from treating someone. One needs to realize that personal interests, as a result of one’s mind, should not harm others or interfere with their interests in an extreme way. When it comes to international conflicts, this could mean that a government has not the right to kill protestors just because they disagree with their form of protest.
