WN: And the Game-Changing Wisdom humanity learned for the first time ever, according to Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt and Roman Catholic thinker Ivan Illich, is the spontaneous love of enemy–no questions asked, no conditions demanded, no holds barred . . . (See: Luke 10:25-37 NIV – The Parable of the Good Samaritan.)
And Jesus also instructs us:
“Go and do likewise.”
At this time of year we traditionally reflect upon our blessings and forgive those who have trespassed against us. But we’ve been trying that for millennia, and the results have been unsatisfactory. So let’s discard the accumulated wisdom of all humanity’s spiritual traditions and focus our mental energy instead on how much we dislike various awful people around us. Merry Christmas.
