I could hurt myself laughing.

I will not explain why your comment is so, hilarious.

You know... this is childhood, playground stuff.
You pre-suppose we want to know.  I certainly don't.

I mean seriously, I would not be surprised to see you respond with, "I know you are but what am I???" Rolling Eyes

Challenge our minds Dark Helmet, I am bored with watching you try to see if your Schwartz is bigger then ours.

Re Peace

Post by Dragonmaster on Thu Mar 01, 2018 9:50 am

We are no longer on topic.

                    I think none of you know anything about peace.
           
                    I believe that you can not fully understand what peace is until you have stared death in the face.
       
                    Knowing that the person standing in front of you is thinking about taking your life and their is nothing you can do about it.

                    It brings the ultimate realization just how precious life is and you cant get it from a book. It cant be explained in words.
                 
                    Only those of us who have lived this experience would know what I an talking about.

                    The other situation that one should experience to understand the value of life fully is to hold someones else's life in your hands while
                   
                    having ultimate power to decide if you let your enemy live or die. Do you let him live because your compassionate even thou moments ago.

                    he was willing to take your life simply because he wanted the money you have in your pocket? Or do you take his life because he would have taken yours

                    and had no consideration for the loved ones that you would have left behind? It is the ultimate decision you can make and you have seconds to make it in.

There you go!

First point you make, you include yourself of those who do not know it for in your words to know peace is to not be able to talk about it after in the first instance, not being able to stop someone from killing you means you died.

The second part... you really should read the words of others here.  For I did both kill my enemy, and spare his life.  Thankfully I can state I helped to spare more then take, but have done both.  I know the peace of that moment very well.  It is fleeting and can never return.

So yes, I understand the term probably better then most.  Hence my responses previously.

I wish you would read> Notice the KEY WORD > ( THINKING )
 
Your logic is flawed. When a person has a another person in a position where they are helpless. would mean you can not stop then from killing you,

When the the person draws his weapon and tells you he wants to kill you. I would say he is thinking about killing you.

If you cant see the difference between the two then you are choosing not to.

I read your words rather well.

I think it asinine that you think you can know what another is thinking based solely on their words.

Unless they are actually acting to take your life, at best all you have is their word. 

But I will have to admit that on one point I will have to concede to your knowledge, as I have never been helpless in front of another.

I say let it go my friend, you are dealing with a child.

Re Peace

Today the world is confronted with increasing threats of nuclear war. It is time for, nonviolent resolutions of global frictions. Their is no place for politically motivated terrorism or assassination. Human problems should be resolved by nonviolent means. History is ripe with human suffering due to inflexibility of belief in the areas of religion and politics.

  

Note: This is not original thought. I do agree with these thoughts.

Where it sounds good in theory, practical application is impossible.

1.  Because it is engrained into our psyche's that violence is a solution.
2.  You yourself already label enemies in this. 

This 'if we just get rid of all the religion and politics, we can resolve everything' is a pipedream.  The place was a whole lot better when their weren't any athiests... at least then all generally saw the same way.

The way forward is not label other groups we don't like as enemies (Like you didearlier, and I did previously) and to learn to coexists.

While we can define enemies, we can fight over it.
