Dear Friends Around The world,
I once observed or asserted that the most important, the greatest invention of all human inventions is the concept of morality, which entails, comprises, and constitutes humanity, human being or “being humane”. This greatest invention produces a wide range or a spectrum of virtues and intrinsic values that, once embraced and cherished by anyone of us, define and guide us how to live with one another. We choose and decide to live with and by morality voluntarily without coercion from anyone but ourselves even though morality, more often than not, if not always, is a detriment rather than advantage in life. We do it just because it’s right! I have to be fair with those who are true believers, true God fearing persons, who act upon their belief that morality is God ultimate love order. In this sense and this case, religion to them, is an ultimate source of morality. The morality of the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy which is shared by different beliefs speaks for itself. I respect that. (My late mother was truly one of these)
To feed the hungry; To give drink to the thirsty; To clothe the naked; To harbour the harbourless; To visit the sick; To ransom the captive; To bury the dead.
Unfortunately, Morality has its arch adversary, another “great” invention of ours, the State. This is the worst, the most destructive force against morality that human has ever invented. It is an ultimate source of crimes, the master of democide! The ultimate destructive force against humanity!
You do not need top go back any further than just have a good look at the world today, and around you: wars, atrocities, injustice. All are from the State.
We’ve often rightly condemned and despised a murderer of one, ten, hundred victims, but more often then not, glorified those who murdered hundreds of thousands and millions by a stroke of their pens! All of this is possible because they have the power of the State!
Do they represent the State or are they the State themselves?
Who have directly been carrying out crimes and atrocities for the THEM, “the State?”
You, yourselves, your fathers, your mothers, yours husbands, your wives, your sons, your daughters, your brothers, your sisters? Oh I know, “they are just doing their jobs!”
I dont know about that! But I do know those who like Ai Wei Wei, Daniel Ellsberg, Mordechai Vanunu, Michael Ruppert, William Binney, Russ Tice,Thomas Andrews Drake, Edward Snowden and many more did not do “their jobs” because they chose morality. They decided not to do “their jobs” because they wanted to do the right thing: they want to remain humane whatever the cost! And they did pay the cost, and continue paying right now for all of us!
