Some of us are wasting time portraying their neightbours – who voted for a slightly different party – as stupid or villians. If our parties were really diffirent we would had a civil war. It’s all this “divide and conquer” thing. Reminds me football hooligans, hating other team’s hooligans just because… Unfollowed lots of doomers and gloomers on Twitter today. 

I am sure lots of people who did “vote for policies” surveys found themselves to be the birds of many colorful feathers agreeing with different parties on different issues. And this is just words, anyway. And we all change. And we are (mostly) not experts on economy and politics.

Meanwhile in less fortunate parts of the world horrible things happen: “The life of a 10-year-old girl who is pregnant after having been raped by her stepfather is in danger. Despite the high risk this pregnancy poses and her mother’s request, access to safe abortion has not been yet provided.“

Some are celebrating somebody’s victory in WW2. I am with the folks who says it was a great tragedy and let’s do all possible that it would never happen again. There is no glory in war.

What is the strongest factor in converting people to the “dark side”? Making them into compassion-free murderers?

I think it’s black and white thinking. “They are all evil”, “This is absolute truth”, “Nothing will change my mind”, “We are always right”, “If they are not with us – they are against us”, “There can’t be another interpretation”, etc.

Any ideology grooming for this type of thinking is potentially making people to flip. 

Compassion is not possible if you can’t stand in other people’s shoes.

Interesting. Brainwashed and thus primitive, cruel Nazzis against all kind of people living peacefully and freely in democratic Canada. They could make one about Taliban, ISIS or North Korea right now. It might be propaganda but the crimes of Nazzis were real. Just like atrocities committed by modern fanatic totalitarian states. Life in so called “democratic” states might be not all sunshine but there is a clear difference when you compare them with the “other side”. Sadly, not so much changed.

Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.

Jawaharlal Nehru (1889 – 1964)
