I know you think you are right. But your arguments are not
You do not fight criminals by becoming like them; you fight
them by becoming more conscious, more courageous, more
honorable, more responsible.
Most people say, "Well I'm responsible but it's
unrealistic to expect others to be that way." The truth is,
none of us is a finished piece of work. Consciousness has
many, many levels. A lot of people think of themselves as
having integrity and being responsible when, in fact, there's
still a lot of room for improvement... most of us quit too soon.
We give up in the face of difficult odds.
If you want to live in a world that truly nurtures the human
spirit, then you have to contribute yourself to the cause. You
have to be willing to grow. You have to try harder. The more you
strive to explore the best that's in you... the more honorable
you become, the more powerful your input becomes. The more
you tell the truth, the more you understand what the truth is.
Most people don't work at it long enough to find out if what
I'm saying is true.
Anyway, if you get stuck arguing with me about this we will
end up divided and that division will only delay what we've
come here to accomplish.
Today, maybe most people probably agree with you. But I'm not
going to quit. I'm more prepared to lose elections than I am
prepared to give up my consciousness. I'm prepared to lose elections until
you decide to stand with me, and then I still won't quit until
others join us and we win. That's
why in my piece I say it's problematic.
So you can stand with me now or you can wait until later. You
can choose to fight either me or them. How often do you want to lose before you see
that you can win? If you would only be steadfast in
holding onto what is honorable
Now is the time, George, if you have the
courage, to believe in the power of the truth.
