And do unto others as you would have them do to you.
Why can't the world learn this?
Certainly harming people back is not better. We have "Justice" so that people who feel
"wronged" can feel "righted." And because some of the evil people in this world know onl
power. Unfortunately it seems some of these people do not even listen to power anymore.
Why should they should they listen to us at all? Do you think they are more likely to
listen to us if we threaten them, or if we speak the truth to them?
Everyone in the world should be able to understand that they should ALWAYS respect other
bodies and property and do unto others as you would have them do to you. And why would
evil people violate these rules?
2) A Cause (or philosophy or religion)
3) Personal Hatred
4) They are psycho
5) They have power and don't care
So there are evil people in this world, and with destructive power they can destroy
whoever and whatever they want to, and they can threaten those who fear them. And it is
only with destructive power that we can arrest their destructive power, and stop them fr
destroying before they do so. Yet I don't know if this always really the best way to dea
with these people. In some situations, like Nazi Germany, in which you have huge numbers
of people threatening to take over the world and oppress, kill, and threaten people, it
may be necessary to destroy them before they destroy you. Yet that's not going to happen
with terrorism. You can not deter or prevent it (very well). So the question becomes, wh
to do about the 6 billion potential terrorists in the world. Preach the Gospel?
Wild animals, psychotics, and criminals have power just like Judges. And by this measure
the law IS psychotic.
So what to do?
Teach people to love each other, I think. And then of course, you have to think about an
realize that this is your life, and that change in the world starts with you. And that i
doesn't really matter what the rest of the world does. For you will make the greatest
impact by helping yourself and those around you.... and ultimately, there is nothing to
fear in this world or any other. Death is nothing. Pain is only pain when you call it so
Call pleasure pain, and it becomes pain, and vice versa. Your body can be imprisoned, bu
not your mind. This world - this life, is short and fleeting. No big deal. Life goes on,
and the temporal is merely temporary and has no effect on the eternal.
