Honoring Others

If we each honor the ideas & opinions of others, there can be no conflict.

Some people are pushy, some are rude. Some people wish us harm, to take our property or use us maliciously.

We cannot and perhaps should not seek to ignore such people. Recognize their ignorant and threatening malevolence.

The militarists in our midst are deeply dangerous. They speak of "acceptable error" with air strikes. But killing or maiming a single innocent person is horrible and inexcusable. In harming innocent children and non-combatants, we who fund violence target ourselves.

Our militarism is out of control, and deeply dangerous.
