Array ( [sid] => 182619 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Love [time] => 2016-02-18 20:59:24 [hometext] => [bodytext] => What is knowledge? Is it power?

Is it understanding? Or is it something more?

Philosophy is a perplexing art, is it not?
ďThere will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself, till philosophers become kings in this world, or till those we now call kings and rulers really and truly become philosophers, and political power and philosophy thus come into the same hands.Ē-Plato

Plato is a philosopher, but what is he saying?

Does humanity acknowledge his understanding of a perfect world, or what even trouble is?

No, Iíll tell you it does not

The world is filled with pestilence, war, famine, misogyny and most of all economic power

These sins are too far reaching to control by the power of someone who represents the people of his/her own nation

What needs to be done is change a doctoral view on what a human is

Iíve seen the world flourish in times of peace and prosperity

The schools I have seen have been teaching this absolute fact for millenniums

By coming together the nation and surrounding territories prosper

Pax Romana, the ultimate peace in all of history

What did it bring about, why is it still taught about in this world or sin and selfishness?

Is that not a grand question?

What if there was an answer to it?

An ultimate nudge that humans only flourish under peace

The answer is in front of you all, but you donít want to grasp it.

Why is that, all Iíve taught you is love The answer is in front of you all, but you donít want to grasp it.

Why is that, all Iíve taught you is love, but you still do not understand

Yes, the world under laws created by my own hand has been in turmoil
But is that my word?

Is that the law you all were presented?

No, no it was not.

Love, love is what I taught you

Yes I helped you form nations and societies but hundreds of years after

I noticed something you can do more than just form communities

Some of you saw past boarders and religion

You all however are still blind

No one understands my word, which is love

Why, why is it that you do not my understand yet

If you loved you all would not feel hatred

Hatred is the ultimate evil, please follow love

I cannot force you to but I can urge you

Help yourselves, this is not for me

This is a test for your souls and humanity

I know someday you will understand but for now you are all

Blind.
