Re: Fight back
Orwell said telling the truth in a world such as the one we live in is a subversive act.
Or in the words of Schopenhauer: "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed; second, it is violently opposed; and third, it is accepted as self-evident."
So if the above is true, BlueAngel, then spreading the truth will be VIOLENTLY opposed. If you really are spreading the Truth, letting yourself be violated by the powers of Darkness is a crime against the powers of Light. Fighting is nescessary and unavoidalbe, since if you don't fight you will be violated for telling the truth and ultimately terminated.
Uncontrolled, arbitrary, indiscriminating violence is not the same as controlled, conscious, intended force.
Everyone says there is an eternal battle going on between Good and Evil.
Peace at any price is unacceptable. You have to ask yourself: peace after WHAT? Victory of the forces of Good or victory of the forces of Evil?
This is the meaning of the Muslim Jihad.
In the Ancient Tradition of India, a true warrior (kshatriya) always battles the forces of Darkness within his own Self and within his opponent's Self. He does NOT fight the forces of Light, neither within his own Self nor his opponents'.
Three things are sacred to me: first Truth, and then, in its tracks, primordial prayer; Then virtue–nobility of soul which, in God walks on the path of beauty. Frithjof Schuon
