Moving beyond positive and negative judgements

Along this journey called life there are some that have a positive outlook, while others a negative one.

The Success in Avoiding War

The topic of war is something to look at from all sides.  These sides can include what we like to define as “right/wrong”, “defense/offense”, “freedom/dictatorship”, and so on.  The one thought that comes to my mind instead, is the existing absence for a fight in favor of humanity as a whole.  For now I only
