A New Article

I've just written a new article entitled
'Persecution is a Social Illness'.

Feel free to post your thoughts on the
article here.

That is a well-written article, Dave. I think the cruelty of persecution comes purely from fear, which is the opposite of love. Fear and hate have similar characteristics, but much of hate in this sense comes directly from fear. In order to stamp out the fear, the people who are committing the acts of cruelty either need to experience awareness and enlightenment or love, to combat the fear. And so, the work begins.

Mona - thank you.
I think you are onto something there. I also believe that people bury their fear of loss (in this case, loss of control or loss of power) so deep that they wouldn't believe you if you told them what the problem is. Instead they would lash out because after a while the reaction of violence becomes automatic. They no longer think about it and thereby lose the opportunity to correct their mind state or behavior. When looking at the near death experience, it appears that everyone faces a day of 'self-judgement' where they deeply regret all the wrongs that they have done. I do hope they can wake up and atone for their mistakes before it is too late, but history has shown us that those who live by/for violence usually meet a violent fate.
