Fascinating

Thank you for sharing that.

I would like to hear you elaborate more on this.

I was reading on here that people want an issue to unite behind. I thought about that for a while, but I didn't really like the idea. How do you get everyone to unite behind an "issue?"

Then the more I thought about it, the more I thought about Love as the issue. How could anyone be against love? Even the Bible tells people to love their neighbors. And here you are quoting philosophers saying that philosophy is the wisdom of love. Who could be against love?

Telepathic, I remember when I changed the tag line - from Peace Gold Liberty, to Peace Gold Love, that you argued pretty strenuously against it, and for "Liberty" instead of Love.

I'm not educated (much) in the depths of philosophy, but I knew that Love preceded Liberty. So I figured, let's just get to the root of the matter.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
