Yesterday someone going by the name of Kane left a comment basically inciting violence against the people currently in power.
I don’t know Kane but when I told him I didn’t think his name was Kane he changed his moniker to “Kane is my name, take it up with my mother” effectively revoking his permit to comment on this blog. I have decided to leave it that way. I suggest to “Kane is my name, take it up with my mother” that he starts a blog on his own were he can write whatever the hell he wants and if he gets enough supporters to do whatever the hell he wants.
I am most definitely not in favour of violent resistance. I hope that with enough people awake we will be able to avoid violence. We all know that violence is not the answer and that violence most often serves the ruling elite not us. A violent revolution is a loss to all of us and if it happens, it will not be because I promote it.
Does that make me a coward? I don’t know. I don’t think Gandhi was a coward. I don’t think Martin Luther King was a coward. But as Martin Luther King said: “Darkness is not driven out by darkness. Only light can drive out darkness. Hate can not drive out hate. Only love can do that.”
Peace to you all and may we become the light that shines in the darkest corners. May we become the Love that destroys all hatred. Do not let the abyss stare into you while you shine a light into it.
