Why is it cheating?
Because if someone lays down their arms and stops threats,with sincerity,then they are no longer an enemy.
So you would be agreeing with me that you could not love an actual enemy I think.
Its a tricky one for me to get this one,at least so far.
It may be cheating in your book, but not in mine and need not be for fellow human brothers and sisters in their daily interactions with one
It does not take one to be armed in order to become an enemy. Simple words alone will cause one to hurt and be hated by another, enough to the point
of being categorised as an enemy.
As long as they do not hurt or harm one another beyond mere words, they need not be enemies to each other. We can love one another, for ultimately in
the end, we laugh and bleed the same, despite our many differences. It takes a lot of tolerant and patience to find a common ground for both to stand
on, and much more is needed if we are to love one another despite our differences.
But it is not difficult or impossible to love, as we all share common aspirations in life. What you want is what I want to, and we can achieve it
better together by sharing, and not against one another.
However, for the one who will resort to violence to get what he alones want or desires, there can be no love, for like wild beasts, they cannot
reciprocate or even comprehend what love is, and will only take advantage of such pacifist concepts to hurt and harm more.
Love is only for humans, a civilisational trait progress mark, and never for or from wild beasts or man turned beasts.
