I wonder whether activism plays a part in making peace?

The normal mind is the adversarial mind. This is what Michel Meiho Bovay says in his commentary on Master Taisen Deshimaru’s Rules of the Dojo.

Global peace may not be possible with normal adversarial mind activity. Conflict potential is perhaps truly transformed by natural state peace mind only.

War is built on anger fear ignorance illusion. Consciousness raising activity shows the current manifestations of the illusions we share, and how active such illusions are. But sick minds essentially need compassion hospital. Is activism compassionate? Does it show compassion?

Anger and fear cannot defeat ignorance and illusion. ‘Those who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes’.
