Everyone is mistaken - whole countries are mistaken - in believing they can wipe out their enemies with weapons, espionage or political intrigue
So you have enemies and you want to defeat them? Fine! But don't use slander, or tricks, or violence, or the power of money or anything similar. Enemies are never really defeated by such weapons, and they will always hold it against you, so you will have yet more trouble with them, if not in this incarnation then in the next. Even supposing you have succeeded in exterminating your enemy: it is only their physical body you have made disappear. In reality, a being can never be annihilated: their soul is immortal, and they will still hate you and want revenge from the other side. So, the war goes on; it never ends. Everyone is mistaken - whole countries are mistaken - in believing they can wipe out their enemies with weapons, espionage or political intrigue. One country can always succeed in neutralizing another for a while, but sooner or later the other will take its revenge. So, other methods have to be found.

Enemies are often more useful than our friends

"It is nice to have some friends, but we must admit that enemies are also very helpful. Yes, if you study the question closely, you will understand that your enemies are actually your real friends, since they are merciless, they will spare you nothing and emphasize everything that goes wrong. You will say, 'Often they do exaggerate!' Yes it is true, but that does not matter, they act as microscopes, which are sometimes very useful; every day scientists use microscopes, and this allows them to see details that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Therefore if you really want to improve yourself, instead of bearing a grudge against your enemies, you must acknowledge the help they give you. It is they who force you to work, mend your ways, find solutions to the problems they raise and, thanks to them, you thus become wiser and stronger."

"It is a tradition to raise monuments and statues to the men and women who have contributed wonderful things to a society, to a culture or even to humanity as a whole. It is right to do so, of course, and I am not suggesting that we should not honour them. Nevertheless, I believe it is to our enemies that we should erect the most beautiful monuments and statues. Of course! They are our true benefactors, thanks to whom we are forced to become more vigilant, more intelligent and more patient. Do you think Iím joking? Well, think what you like, but all the same, try to reflect a little on this idea: our friends often put us to sleep, whereas our enemies upset and stimulate us. You will say: ĎBut they make our life impossible!í In fact, if you possess a high ideal and the sincere desire to advance, you will receive all the knowledge and strength necessary to make use of every obstacle your enemies put on your path. These obstacles are like rungs of a ladder which allow you to climb higher and higher."

"Even if those who preach Christianity strive to remember the precept given by Jesus: 'Love your enemies', in reality there are very few people capable of applying it. The majority do not even know how to love their friends, so how can they love their enemies? It is so difficult! In order to succeed in doing so, we must link ourselves with a being who manifests this commandment fully: the sun. Watch, and you will see that however human beings behave, the sun continues to send them its light and warmth, to nourish and vivify them.

If you want to understand the highest moral code, you will find it in the sun, and only there. And since the sun represents the spirit within you, when looking at it, force yourself to rise to those regions within you where you feel that nothing can touch you. Because it is only from here that, whatever happens to you, you can continue to send out your light and your love."

"Shooting an enemy with a revolver or pouring a few drops of poison into their glass, placing explosives or turning on the gas to blow up their house Ė thatís easy. Thereís nothing to be proud of or boast about in that sort of victory.

True victory does not mean annihilating enemies. True victory means successfully turning enemies into friends. Be very clear about that. For then, instead of being surrounded by people who seek only to harm you, youíll be surrounded by those whose only thought is to help you. Itís difficult, of course; not only does it require great work on yourself, which is the first difficulty, but then there is the even greater difficulty, the work you have to do on the other person to convince them you could be friends. But if you gain this kind of victory, it proves you live in the truth."

Reverse reverse reverse guilting psych attack.

However the premise is correct. I believe this is why we are seeing the bad guys fuck with everyone's memories now. I do think something happened, maybe more than once, to mess up our memories.

But I am still keenly aware I have been messed with and it is MOTIVATIONAL YOU BET

LOL

So said the Top of every forgotten culture who let themselves be wiped out by those who would use violence, and could organize.

So many wise men like the OP forgotten and meaningless in history.

The winner writes history, the loser often "turned the other cheek".

Your selfish cowardice will not help you in this life, or the next. People convinced that only being a cowardly pussy will get you into heaven are fools of the highest order. Fighting to protect others is what has made man crawl out of hunting/gathering.

Give it up "Give peace a chance" people, you're on the wrong fucking planet.

compromise. Speak globally, to each nation. Find out what each country would need in order to feel comfortable in a new world.


Then find the compromise between it all. If the majority of the countries agree, it is done. All who doesn't agree won't have much of a choice if they want to interact with the new world.


Violence is understandable in an overpopulated world but it is not necessary
