Smudge Pot! I just realized what it was

What it was that bothered me about this.

Mother Theresa.

Mother Theresa.

What did she say about going to an anti-war rally?

I will never attend an anti-war rally; if you have a peace rally, invite me.

Now - is that a real quote or not? I have no idea - I found it on the internet. I lean towards yes, but ultimately whether she ever said it not, she's right!

Antiwar is a good wedge. I agree. But what are you for?

And how do you sell what you're for?

It is all a big marketing campaign. Beauty pageant. Product launch. It is the Selling of the President.

(I wish I could say I've read that book, but I haven't and I hope the opportunity arises that I can read it.)

I have to think about how I'd feel about selling a negative. A double negative. Anti-War. Why not just a positive?

Why not shower them with Love instead.

If for no other reason than no one has ever, or will ever attempt it - if not for the Merry Pranksters of the Daily Paul.

Unite behind the issue of Love, then turn the love hose on, spigot wide open. I mean tap into the universal source of love, and see if we can direct it, and use it to put out those raging fires of hatred in most people's hearts?

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
