Bloody nonsense. Bolshevism, Judaism, immigration, depression of the economy, none of these are acceptable reasons to think, speak, and act like a
tyrannical supremacist, either on the individual level, or on the national or international stage.
People all over the world have one duty toward one another, and that is to be decent and kind to one another, regardless of the difficulties
presented in the doing of it. Reasonable people have this duty not through a written law, not through a treaty signed by some dignitaries no one
remembers the names of without a weeks revision of their high school history literature, but because reasonable people the world over realise that for
all the differences in skin tone, religion, and political beliefs, we all look the same on the inside. We are human beings, and we are human beings
before we are all the other things we become in life. That is what gives us all a responsibility toward our fellow human beings, to be good to them,
to treat them with respect, and to ensure that those who refuse to offer that common courtesy, no matter what pathetic, petty justification there
might be for that failure, are admonished and prevented from causing harm to the innocent.
The SDU can justify their neo-Nazi lite nonsense any way they see fit, and ISIS can attempt to justify the ease with which they have been played by
those who funded and armed them, but all it boils down to is that those two organisations are full of people who failed to accept their humanity, and
that their humanity comes before all other considerations, including but not limited to, their faith, their colour, their culture, their national
identity, or any of the other things people cling on to instead of accepting the enormity of the thing they are a part of.
All the human race are my kin, all the members of this species have a place by my hearth, a seat at my table, and a place in my heart. Those,
however, who put the petty, mortal concerns of boundaries and dogma before their humanity, those who would rather hate than love, those who would
rather see the weak crushed underfoot than upheld, those who would rather behead their fellow man than break bread with him, those who seek dominion
over others, no matter how large or small, those people have no place in my home, no seat at my table, and no business roaming the world spreading
venom and hatred in the ears of all who will listen.
I am not so naive that I believe that everything is sweetness and light in the world Kantzveldt, that there is no enemy out there. I KNOW my enemy.
My enemy is not limited to one region of the world, nor are they limited to one creed, or one religion, nor one skin tone or one methodology. My
enemies are the enemies of mankind, those who scheme to make money from the suffering of the innocent by way of war and created famine, those who seek
to have dominion over the oppressed under any banner or for any reason, those who would banish the needy to protect their own petty interests, those
who seek to benefit themselves at any cost, no matter what gets ruined along the way... These are my enemies, and the enemies of the entire species as
I am human first, and there are countless, heaving, voiceless billions who feel the same. We may all be individuals, but we are one human race, and
that is what matters. An inability to recognise that, is what leads to tyranny, and it cannot be tolerated, for any reason. To allow that to rise in
any form, under any guise, is to ally oneself with the enemies of humanity, and that is a fate worse than death for anyone with a half decent
