How can we still turn a blind eye?
Could only look on screen

It's always a close eye on all your suffering, you're crying
What we've been doing

Our prayers, May god give you strength
Facing the cruel people

The Theory of humanity related to pray for palestine
Some psychologists at the time disliked psychodynamic and behaviorist explanations of personality. They felt that these theories ignored the qualities that make humans unique among animals, such as striving for self-determination and self-realization. In the 1950s, some of these psychologists began a school of psychology called humanism.
Humanity is an academic science that studies human elements using norm analysis, critical and speculation and not the original so norm empirical science and social. Humanitarian field have included the study of language, literature, history, philosophy, religion, visual arts, performing arts (including music). Anthropology, area studies, communication, cultural studies say that overlapping fields of social sciences with the humanities. Others have included the fields of theology, law, psychology, philology, rhetoric and so on. Two psychologists, Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers, became well known for their humanistic theories.
Abraham Maslow's Theory
The highest rung on Abraham Maslow's ladder of human motives is the need for self-actualization. Maslow said that human beings strive for self-actualization, or realization of their full potential, once they have satisfied their more basic needs.
Maslow also provided his own account of the healthy human personality. Psychodynamic theories tend to be based on clinical case studies and therefore lack accounts of healthy personalities. To come up with his account, Maslow studied exceptional historical figures, such as Abraham Lincoln and Eleanor Roosevelt, as well as some of his own contemporaries whom he thought had exceptionally good mental health.
Maslow described several characteristics that self-actualizing people share:
Awareness and acceptance of themselves
Openness and spontaneity
The ability to enjoy work and see work as a mission to fulfill
The ability to develop close friendships without being overly dependent on other people
A good sense of humor
The tendency to have peak experiences that are spiritually or emotionally satisfying
Carl Rogers's Person-Centered Theory
Carl Rogers, another humanistic psychologist, proposed a theory called the person-centered theory. Like Freud, Rogers drew on clinical case studies to come up with his theory. He also drew from the ideas of Maslow and others. In Rogers's view, the self-concept is the most important feature of personality, and it includes all the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs people have about themselves. Rogers believed that people are aware of their self-concepts.
Congruence and Incongruence
Rogers said that people's self-concepts often do not exactly match reality. For example, a person may consider he to be very honest but often lies to his boss about why he is late to work. Rogers used the term incongruence to refer to the discrepancy between the self-concept and reality. Congruence, on the other hand, is a fairly accurate match between the self-concept and reality.
Criticisms of Humanistic Theories
Humanistic theories have had a significant influence on psychology as well as pop culture. Many psychologists now accept the idea that when it comes to personality, people's subjective experiences have more weight than objective reality. Humanistic psychologists' focus on healthy people, rather than troubled people, has also been a particularly useful contribution.
However, critics of humanistic theories maintain several arguments:
Humanistic theories are too naïvely optimistic and fail to provide insight into the evil side of human nature.
Humanistic theories, like psychodynamic theories, cannot be easily tested.
Many concepts in humanistic psychology, like that of the self-actualized person, are vague and subjective. Some critics argue that this concept may reflect Maslow's own values and ideals.
Humanistic psychology is biased toward individualistic values.
