Dr. Ahmadi started his speech with congratulating student’s day to all students and especially awardee students who are being selected by the university as better students in their classes. He welcomed all the students and participants and thanked from all those who helped in organizing this event.
Dr. Ahmadi opened his discussion quoting from his previous speech and elaborated on those points. He mentioned that there are three values changed the world including knowledge, ethical evolution of the society as a whole, technology and the last one is freedom.
Dr. Ahmadi continued that Freedom is the most important element of being human and the freedom is the base of human rights. Freedom has benefits and disadvantages/unwilling results but according to john Stewart Mill its benefits are more important than its negative results. Each individual should manage their freedom to maximize the benefits. He added that human can maximize the benefits of freedom and minimize the unwilling consequences of freedom through knowledge application.
According to Dr. Ahmadi, the second value is ethical evolution of the society as a whole. He mentioned that our society is established based on hatred, murdering and corruption. If we want to be free of these problems and be a healthy society then we should go into an evolution process that corrupt individuals, do not select corrupt leaders and corrupt leaders do not keep corruption so we need to change the society ethically. Through this positive ethical evolution, culture of extremism and hatred will be vanished. Education and collective efforts of all the elements of the society is an important way to ethically transform the society.
The fourth value is technology where people need to use in all aspect of their lives to improve living conditions. You all know that Afghanistan is the poorest country in the world and we have to overcome this problem using technology. Through technology we can transform society into good and use them to develop our abilities and use them for developing society.
