Lose a War – To a Superior Civilization
I just searched K. for a favorite quote I heard in 1970 and can’t find it: another casualty of the US censorng my domains. I’ll repeat the story real quick here. Upon founding FLEX I spent a lot of time in churches trying to forge alliances with social ameliorists. This and that protestant group, and more Catholic groups than I’d ever heard of. I repeated something that had appalled me to one of the Protestants: NYC cops, on public pay, were raising funds for Catholic churches. No one seemed offended. I was outraged. The pastor said, “There’s only one thing to be done: lose a war to a superior civiliazation!
Put it differently: a god, a superior force, correct coersion, is only only hope. Humans in themselves are not capable of proper behavior.
