Reply to "A REMISS SOCIETY MUST STAND THE GAFF"

Jazzhawk,

We may all know the problems, but do we really? If we cast the problems in the wrong light, if we say of them what is not right, then do we really know the problems?

Your last statement included the phrase, "Political methods on a solution." My thesis is that there are no political methods toward a solution. it is not a political problem, therefore it does not have a political solution. The solution involves a lot of work and a lot of self-sacrifice, because it means that we have to get to know other (kinds of) people, let them get to know us, and not to let our prejudices against them get in our way.

It goes against much of what so many of us say, but just because many of us say it doesn't mean it's right. In fact, if many of us say it, it's more than likely wrong, for we humans tend to be much more wrong than right.

Kraaaal,

Your response is worse than dangerous. It has in it the hate that can beget only hate. Violence is not an answer to htis problem. If the problem is fear--which it is, fear of the different--then the solution is not to give those who fear without reason a reason to fear. Your answer will build a wall of arms and violence, not break down walls of prejudice and hate.

Reparations is not a part of this, and the Palestinian suicide/homicide bombers are exactly the wrong example to draw your inspiration from. Prejudiced people do not need threats. They need to know that we are humans together. We can't do that with bombs.
