Why do I need to go to war? War against cancer, war against drugs, war against poverty, war against Iraq, war against corruption, war, war, war, war……for me that is for me complete BS.
Sorry, that last is not at all intentioned against you.
No problem. I didn’t take it all to be against me. My point was simply that there are those who express themselves by going to war, and there are those like you who express their voice in other ways. But the voice still should be expressed. You counter-balance each other and catalyzing friction occurs. Physical action can be motivated by love and compassion as much as fear or hate. I participated in this year’s election out of love for this world. I send money to charities out of compassion. @Annan wrote:

This is why I’m confused. I never mentioned death in the context of fear or obstacles. An unchanging world is the true death (in the sense of “end of life”)… the living death of stagnation. No, I love death, I love change. There is no fear here. If I fear anything it is stagnation. Death removes/transforms “obstacles” along the infinite spiral of evolution. It is through death that we are immortal.
