Conscious Violence is The Worst Evil


Ukraine, Syria: Incendiary Weapons Threaten Civilians | Human Rights Watch http://buff.ly/1qGn41Y

Conscious violence is the worst evil. It is deliberate harm to another human being in sport, crime, war or abuse. It threatens or extinguishes the precious core of freedom in another. It is a sin against the holy. Violence is celebrated by nations and cultures. Justifications have a common thread. They claim rights no human being possesses. Such claims are idolatrous. In this century, we will either make violence taboo or suffer the wages of a retrograde unwillingness to face truth.
