Fear and Love.
My thesis is that the evil in our world is caused by fear.
And what is the antidote to fear?
Fear makes us attack.
Fear makes us hoard.
Fear makes us retaliate.
Fear makes us defend ourselves.
But love makes us forgive.
Love makes us pardon.
Love is compassionate.
Love is kind.
So if we are serious about lessening the evil in our world we must absorb evil and return love.
And this is precisely what Jesus taught.
