People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
That is a really good question. I don't think that we should. That is the issue that we are confronting as a society right now. Though it is being handled horribly and the public does not understand the true extent of the problem...we should not be tolerant of intolerance.jfuh
Why should we be tolerant of intolerance?
My teachings are easy to understand
and easy to put into practice.
Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.
Gandhi was not Tolerant of Intolerance. He shoved the oppression and hypocrisy right back in the face of the British. Of course, he was banking on the British falling back on their morals when confronted with this issue, and it worked. What we are facing now is different. We are seeing beheadings and suicide bombings of innocent and there is no respect for life. We are in big trouble IMO.Originally Posted by jfuh
Exactly. I don't know what it is, a refusal to address the issues or banking on the support of intolerance.
