La Nouvelle Philosophie

If we have ignored the philosophy of love and respect, all the learning and study and the reasoned arguments in the world all come down to one basic sub-set of phenomena: the rock  bottom, the cul-de-sac, the free fall into nothingness, war and vendetta...
all the smart people arguing... it all comes down to the choice between love or hate.

An initial choice like Power, for example, begins a trajectory from Power to that vast holding tank of despair along the routes familiar to Power. A choice of Money begins the fall on the Money Line track.

Love is coming together and letting go. It is this paradoxical nature of Love that guarantees it is the right path, although that paradox also guarantees that it will be difficult.
Hate is straight forward. There is no beating around the bush with Hatred.

In re power, Assad in Syria. That situation is beyond belief. I read today that the Syrian security forces are targeting hospitals, doctors, nurses, other medical professionals. Some have even been killed for doing their jobs, i.e., caring for injured people. The wrong kind of injured people, need we say ...

I just got through going over discussion of the push by Israel and Evangelicals and other nauseating right-wing-types to get a war going with Iran, and how it looks like it is failing...

The major conduit of their misrepresentations is our various media, so I never know what to believe when I read such things.

I met Hafez Al-Assad once, the old man, and he seemed like an OK guy, but my Arabic teacher has quite a different opinion.
