does one measure honesty when lies are enthroned? "In Lies
We Trust!" is the watchword of this age as many say. How can one be honest with oneself
then, when popular
opinion tells one what the outcome of one's
honesty must be?
The poet said that love is joy
in the beauty of another. Should this be
suppressed as a crime for any of a thousand
reasons? Perhaps the poet has seen more than what
most people see. Perhaps the poet is more
complete as a person to be able to love more and to love more freely, unencumbered, unbounded, out-flowing like the sun. We too, need to be more
complete to love more completely, more freely.
in isolation is not security. The world is facing
great dangers that come from centuries of
isolation, from people having cut themselves off
from their own humanity. We speak of civility,
but deny unity, honesty, and sovereignty. Behind
the facade of a sterile civility the greatest
crimes are committed which break up nations with policies of divide, conquer, and rule.
In this promiscuity to
commit murder the nations are set against each
other, even to be consumed in nuclear war. Here lies the
promiscuity that gives the lie to our present
peace built on 20,000 nuclear warheads as the guarantor of
promiscuity becomes the doom of humanity, because
of its inability to love.
