|| How Big is the Military Economy In New Mexico?
Some important thoughts to begin the prayer and study:
"Utopia is on the horizon: When I walk two steps, it takes two steps back. I walk ten steps and it is ten steps further away. What is utopia for? It is for walking."
"Nonviolence is a power which can be wielded equally by all, provided they have a living faith in the God of Love, and therefore, have an equal love for all mankind. I swear by nonviolence, because I know that it alone condues to the highest good of mankind. I object to violence because, when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary, the evil it does is permanent...Nonviolence works for the good of all, not only of the greatest number."
"One of the most shining examples that history has preserved for us is the life of Christ. Obeying the inner call of his vocation, Jesus voluntarily exposed himself to the assualts of imperial madness that filled everyone, conqueror and conquered alike. In this way he recognized the nature of the psyche which had plunged the whole world into misery. Far from allowing himself to be suppressed by this psychic onslaught, he consciously assimilated it....His religion of love was the exact psychological counterpoint to the politics of power. Jesus pointed humanity [to] the truth that where force rules there is no love, and where love reigns force does not count."
