Of Love and Liberty

“What’s love got to do with liberty? Just about everything! If we love our neighbors, we won’t steal from them, defraud them, or assault them. If we secretly hate or even judge them as stupid, foolish, or lesser than ourselves, we’ve stopped honoring their choices and started belittling them. We have separated ourselves from them instead of dwelling in the sense of equality and oneness. Because they are “other,” we can justify a bit of aggression against them “for their own good.” Tyranny begins with the belief that if we can bend others to our will, all will be well.” – Dr. Mary Ruwart
