“We are each one of us responsible for every war because of the aggressiveness of our own lives, because of our nationalism, our selfishness, our gods, our prejudices, our ideals, all of which divide us. And only when we realise, not intellectually but actually, as actually as we would recognise that we are hungry or in pain, that you and I are responsible for all this existing chaos, for all the misery throughout the entire world because we have contributed to it in our daily lives and are part of this monstrous society with its wars, divisions, its ugliness, brutality and greed, only then will we act. – Jiddu Krishnamurti
“We” are collectively responsible for the “problem” and the “solution”.
I agree. It is the governments and industries of this world that are manipulating the people into heinous acts of violence and depravity on their behalf – but not ours.
Our inability to cope with this rising tide of escalating evil says a lot about us all individually. We have become incapable of sound reason, and identifying what needs to be changed.
