The general principle of the “Art of Life” is that of conduciveness to the happiness of mankind, or rather, of all sentient beings.
Just now stumbling upon this!
For those that have continuously asked why I don’t praise our military the way Americans are indoctrinated to. I can respect the courage because, in virtue of the way the world is, somebody’s gotta do it. But most of our soldiers, even in their experiences, still do not understand the depth of the consequences of them just doing their jobs or “serving” our country. “There’s no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy.”
From the clip:
"Understand that they are paralyzed only in their ability to convince us that war, oppression, and exploitation is in our interest."
"We need to wake up and realize that our real enemies are not in some distant land. They are not people whose names we don’t know and cultures we don’t understand. The enemies are people we know very well and people we can identify. The enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable. The enemy is the CEOs that lay us off our jobs when it’s profitable, the insurance companies who deny us health care when it’s profitable, the banks who take away our homes when it’s profitable. Our enemies are not five thousand miles away, they are right here at home.”
Glad to see Peru on there!
i thought i was being innovative!
