In his 1971 song Peace Train, Cat Stevens (who now calls himself Yusuf Islam) also wrote and sang about the dream of a TRANSFORMED, human-condition-ameliorated world, when we could leave the terrible darkness of our cave-like prison of alienated self-estrangement and return to an untroubled, peaceful, integrated state. http://www.humancondition.com More
Some ppl like to be right even if they are dead ass wrong. Even after the proof have been giving. I like to be corrected: THAT'S THE ONLY WAY YOU LEARN ANYTHING ON ANY LEVEL .. NO ONE IS RIGHT ALL THE TIME .. BECAUSE THEY WILL HAVE IT ASSUMED THAT YOU ARE PERFECT.. WHO IS THAT? I WOULD LOVE TO MEET THEM .. LOL :)
George Lakey, a Swarthmore professor, explaines the origins and rationalism of pacifism in the Quaker religion. He states that the spirit Quaker's believe in is not contradictory or hypocritical, it will not call for peace, love and understanding one moment and then war another. The spirit Quaker’s believe in is consistent. He goes on to give historical groundings for Quaker’s belief in pacifism. Later in his talk he makes the claim that nonviolence movements are more effective.
