Love, as I'm using the word, is acting in harmony with that which is good, not just for me but for the world.
If I am a publisher, and I trade my services to you for money so that you can publish your book on NAP, then I am acting in harmony with that which is good, but if I do the same for a second author who is advocating using the force of govt to achieve ends then, while I may be feeding my family I am also helping to propagate evil.
In the first case, if I too know NAP to be the good, then helping you publish your book is acting in love.
In the first case, if I help you but not because I know anything about NAP then I am acting for good, but only by chance, and thus not in love.
In the second case, if I know NAP to be the good, then helping publish the book is acting to propagate evil.
In the second case, if I know nothing about NAP then I am still acting to propagate evil, even if only by chance.
I submit that one should always strive to act for the good - to act in love for that which is good. In order to do so, of course, one must seek to know the truth.
I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be. Albert Einstein
