Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.

Hi Pandabonium, Great post
So much can be said with few words
Hate breeds hate and conflict
Fear breeds fear and conflict
Revenge breeds revenge & conflict

only love can breed Love & Peace!

Quasar9 - thanks. seems every great spiritual mentor that comes along gives this message and somehow "we" never get it.

Wow. Thanks Ladybug. We could sure use someone like MLK today. The Vietnam speech I linked to is very relevant right now.
