The history of ideas have been fraught with both conflict and bloodshed. Truly, it has been ‘ideas’ and not ‘battles’ though, that have marked the forward progress of our Civilization. Historically speaking, we as a Civilization, have certainly moved above and beyond the barbarism of which we think conceived us.
Yet, strangely and sadly, we still kill for sport, honor, family pride, racial purity, fear, respect, revenge, and retaliation; and let’s not forget as a not so friendly ‘reminder’ to the rest, as to ‘whose really in charge around here’. Imagine that, some people, still actually continue to use force and control to push their ideas on the rest of Humanity. Why?
In fact, anytime two or more courageous and like minded people get together and realize that Life is more precious and deserving than anything else, and should be protected and preserved at all costs; we create hope for a better world. Do you now begin to understand the power of an ‘idea’, especially one, whose time has come?
To me it makes perfect simple sense; it requires no figuring, or explanation; its self-evident and primal, survival! Yet…some people still need to kill and dominate with force. This is not Life; this is not Survival. Death is that; Death! IT'S FINAL! Domination and Control is not Life; or, a way of Living Freely!
No excuses, no exceptions, and no rationalizing the rule: Protect and preserve Life above all else. Maintaining that purity of truth will keep us alive, to see our children, and their children benefit from our integrity of mind and expression. We must keep this truth alive moment to moment with every encounter within our environment.
Reasonably enough, when you ‘protect and preserve’ anything or anyone, you respect them first. Life is a miracle beyond our scientific measure; it deserves respect and admiration for its present existence and survival potential. We are all here together, and we are all inter-connected and inter-dependent; whether we choose to admit it or not. This is another fact of our mutual co-existence!
We can collectively create a better world!
Radical? Subversive? Dangerous? You can take your pick. One fact is clear, ‘protecting and preserving Life’, can also get you killed!
The question is: Are you willing to die for it?
Now, how radical is that?
