By James Page, published 8/12/2020

The writings and speeches of Martin Luther King Jr explore the idea that passive acceptance of injustice means acceptance of injustice and cooperation with evil.

*...Dr James Page is a writer and educationist, and a recognized authority within the field of peace education...*

The good doctor has gone soft in the head. The best remedy for the condition acquired from too many years living in unreality, is to embrace it joyfully and be not afraid of it.

And a request from the unkind to the kind, is please leave us in peace, and spare us all from this neurotic crap.

While we are being kind they are tearing down our statues, trashing our culture. Teaching our kids that Western Civilisation is Bad,bad,bad in our schools, never pointing out the bloody histories of the countries of their Cash Cow overseas Uni Students. So the professors can earn $200,000 a year. Itís a fools game if you keep being kind to people and they keep kicking you in the guts.
It has to be a two way street.

While we try to be tolerant and kind to some of these people, they spit hate at our culture and use our law courts to gain power over our government.

America will loose its Democracy in 24 hours, Judge Scalia of the Supreme Court just called for a dayís stay of the swearing in of the Electrol college so the Supreme CRT can look again at the massive voting fraud, the leftwing lawcourts and officials say didnít happen despite overwhelming evidence.

Authoritarian Governt is close to gaining power. Authoritarian government who canít be voted out become tyrannical governments, not accountable and riding roughshod over the people. You can even be murdered like Epstein under these regimes.

Australia needs to pay close attention to whatís happening in America, because our leftwing here is every bit as extreme as the American left especially certain leftwing voters.

Depends whether it is delivered from on high as endless verbal vomit or done without ever expecting reward, just because you can!

Kindness for its own sake as common practice (the Christian Golden rule) is far better than its complete absence in the dog eat dog world of yesterday!

Kindness seems to be mostly limited to those of us with the least giving the most? Doing most of the heavy lifting?

It is written, inasmuch as you do unto the least among you, you also do unto me!

If you read enough, you will know that J.C., was a left-wing radical in virtually all he espoused! And that an inherent internal genuine Christian ethos and right-wing conservatism are mutually incompatible and or completely opposing ideologies!

At the end of your life and when you have to face the man in the mirror? The one who you cannot fool with endless lies and falsehoods/blame-shifting!

How will you justify your time and existence? By your many acts of unheralded Christian kindness or its opposite, extreme right-wing activism (I'm alright Jack) and its constant companion, blame-shifting? And I know you know who you are!

Kindness is certainly a good place to start!

Why not check out the book titled The Dalai Lama A Policy of Kindness and do a search of the topic the Dalai Lama and kindness.
