On Abominations’ Wings– Daniel 9:27

English Standard Version (©2001)
And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”

New American Standard Bible (©1995)
“And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

God is truth. The way to truth lies through ahimsa (non-violence)”—Sabarmati Ashram, Gujarat 13 March 1927

Excerpt from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram (sometimes called Ram Dhun) is a popular bhajan (Hindu devotional song) that was a favourite of Mahatma Gandhi.[1] The version that is most common was put to music by Ustad Bismillah Khan and was sung by Gandhi and his followers as they walked during the 241 mile Salt March to Dandi of Satyagraha. A Law of Value.

“God is truth. The way to truth lies throughahimsa (non-violence)”—Sabarmati 13 March 1927

Gandhi dedicated his life to the wider purpose of discovering truth, or Satya. He tried to achieve this by learning from his own mistakes and conducting experiments on himself.  He called his autobiography The Story of My Experiments with Truth.[150]

Bruce Watson argues that Gandhi based Satyagraha on the Vedantic ideal of self-realization, and notes it also contains Jain and Buddhist notions of nonviolence, vegetarianism, the avoidance of killing, and ‘agape’ (universal love). Gandhi also borrowed Christian-Islamic ideas of equality, the brotherhood of man, and the concept of turning the other cheek.[151]

Gandhi stated that the most important battle to fight was overcoming his own demons, fears, and insecurities. Gandhi summarised his beliefs first when he said “God is Truth”. He would later change this statement to “Truth is God”. Thus, satya (truth) in Gandhi’s philosophy is “God”.[152]

The essence of Satyagraha (a name Gandhi invented meaning “adherence to truth”[153]) is that it seeks to eliminate antagonisms without harming the antagonists themselves and seeks to transform or “purify” it to a higher level. An euphemism sometimes used for Satyagraha is that it is a “silent force” or a “soul force” (a term also used by Martin Luther King Jr. during his famous “I Have a Dream” speech). It arms the individual with moral power rather than physical power. Satyagraha is also termed a “universal force”,  as it essentially “makes no distinction between kinsmen and strangers, young and old, man and woman, friend and foe.”[154]

Gandiji wrote: “There must be no impatience, no barbarity, no insolence, no undue pressure. If we want to cultivate a true spirit of democracy, we cannot afford to be intolerant. Intolerance betrays want of faith in one’s cause.”[155] Civil disobedience and non-cooperation as practised under Satyagraha are based on the “law of suffering”,[156] a doctrine that the endurance of suffering is a means to an end.  This end usually implies a moral upliftment or progress of an individual or society. Therefore, non-cooperation in Satyagraha is in fact a means to secure the cooperation of the opponent consistently with truth and justice.[157]

Professor of Exceptionalism-American Values.

Professing American exceptionalism – the conviction that our country holds a unique place and role in human history – we proudly associate ourselves with those Americans of all political stripes who, more than three decades ago in a world as dangerous as today’s, came together to advance the cause of freedom. Repudiating the folly of an amateur foreign policy and defying a worldwide Marxist advance, they announced their strategy in the timeless slogan we repeat today: peace through strength – an enduring peace based on freedom and the will to defend it, and American democratic values and the will to promote them. While the twentieth century was undeniably an American century – with strong leadership, adherence to the principles of freedom and democracy our Founders’ enshrined in our nation’s Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and a continued reliance on Divine Providence – the twenty-first century will be one of American greatness as well.

Dictatorship and private property. Rule of Civil Laws never again.

One likely empirical implication from this discussion is that left-wing dictatorships are worse at protecting property rights than right-wing dictatorships. “Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected.”

You are the bud of suffering try to love only then on swaying flower buds I will fill with honey. Why reveal your entire soul in your eyes and what great stories lie in them?  My life will be fulfilled when you come into my room. In the corner of shame you will find a bed of flowers. In the dead of night despair plays the flute. By choosing death, Bride today you only weep.  Why do tears fill these kohl covered eyes?
