Dulce et Decorum Est

Humanity in general, and our Christian humanity in particular, has reached a stage of such acute contradiction between its moral demands and the existing social order, that a change has become inevitable, and a change not in society’s moral demands, which are immutable, but in the social order, which can be altered. The demand for a different social order, evoked by that inner contradiction which is so clearly illustrated by our preparations for murder, becomes more and more insistent every year and every day.

– Leo Tolstoy

    =( May I ask why you shared that? (Guess) To spread awareness?

  2. Martin Luther King said that “our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism.” I believe that.

    I agree. So long as ‘hostility against poverty, racism, militarism’ etc., is also utilizing peaceful measures as well.

    I really enjoy your posts (as well as Verena’s) and am still playing through TSWCE. They’ve cause quite a bit of interesting dialogue with the people I come into contact with.

    Take care! (you don’t mind random comments eh?)
