The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear.

Violence isn't merely organized butchery in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more subtle, much deeper, and we are inquiring into the very depths of violence.

When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent.

Do you see why it is violent?

Because you are separating yourself from the rest of humankind.

When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence.

So a person who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he or she is concerned with the total understanding of humankind.

............ said Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986)

Strange that your images in buddies list are the only ones that do not put 'new image' each time a new one is posted.
russell higgs: Maybe it's something to do with each new one being the same identity card pose.

It fundamentally never changes. Citizen Higgs clocking in, day after day after day.

So to call oneself British, American, Chinese etc is an act of violence. I'm not sure that it is a violent act in itself but it is subscribing to something. The EU is a lets-make-ourselves-rich-and-keep-poor-nations-outside organisation. African farming cannot compete with our farm subsidies. If I could do one small thing I would replace the flag of the UK. Mine would be a clear transparent piece of plastic material.
