To a man who beheads another man I say NO
To a Supreme Commander who orders drones to bomb communities I say NO
To the parent who uses their Physical Superiority to insist their Children obey I say NO
To the man/woman who thinks blowing themselves up with others will ever make Their Truth Real I say NO
To the man/woman
next door neighbour,
who think any form of Intimidation is justifiable to make the other person Agree with You, I say NO.
Who am I to say NO?
Well I have studied the Human Being for 49 years and I know what will make you (and me) Happy.
The question is not Dirty Harry’s “you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?”
It is simply do you want to Grow?
Do you want moments of Pure Joy, Bliss and Contentment?
Do you want to have that handful of Friends, Family and Colleagues who truly Get You, Support You, thus truly Love You?
As an Individual
As a Community,
As a Country
As a Global Community
As the Human Species?
Israel, America, Egypt, Syria, Africa…etcetcetc;
Mum, dad, husband, wife ex-partner, boss…etcetcetc
Do ya want this?
Well, do ya, punk?
p.s. I love ya…and I reckon the answer is yes. You want happiness and joy and love. If so we have to (as hard as it is; believe me I struggle most days) reject violence and intimidation as a mean of persuasion from our home to our community (ie non-blood relationships) and to other races. And yes, including in our religious motivations.
