By Any Means Necessary?

Seven hospitalized in California when white supremacists clashed with an anti-fascist group calling itself "By Any Means Necessary." Yvette Felarca, a member of the latter group, defended the violence passionately, even calling for more.

So sad we can't get this: Violence only defeats people but people aren't the enemy. Ideas are. A bad idea has NEVER been defeated by violence. In fact, bad ideas thrive on violence. What defeats them is love and truth wielded creatively.

Anyone who embraces "any means necessary" has already lost. Good motives do NOT change this truth. Ms. Felarca and company: Don't be transformed by your fear; rather transform your fear into radical acts of creative love.

Also known as Wholism.
