Abhijit Naskar
“My religion is the best - my nation is the best - my language is the best - my skin color is the best - and so on. One may feel proud saying all these things, but that very pride ends up becoming the cause of all interhuman conflicts in the human society.”
Abhijit Naskar, Build Bridges not Walls: In the name of Americana

“What do national days celebrate?
The enslavement of indigenous races, the annexation of mineral wealth and natural resources, the forceful acceptance of the invaders' gods & beliefs.
I was born in a country that enslaved and made the natural inhabitants second class citizens. I love my country, but they need everyone to work together now, because sadly, the whole world is at stake. Not just one country.
It's time differences were put aside. Greed & wants were given up. Petty wars and conflicts were put to bed. Wealth was finally seen as the evil that it truly is.
People may scoff, and call me nuts or crazy, but the crazy ones are the ones that want to continue to incite wars, conflicts and aggression all for the sake of greed and wealth.
It's time to stand up!
It's time to be heard!
It's time to voice what you know is right & just!
It's time for all religions & faiths to act as one!

It's time.”
Anthony T. Hincks

Ehsan Sehgal
“The act of determining is distinct than persistence; the first term means the struggle for the right cause, the other one describes the continuation, the view of point or course of action, wrong or right. The consensus, based on any rule is the wisdom and boldness. One has to realize the facts and is ready to accept as defeat or victory than the senseless conflict.”
Ehsan Sehgal

Jared Taylor
“What are the advantages of diversity that not only compensate for agonizing conflicts but justify considering it America’s “greatest strength?” If readers cannot immediately think of any besides ethnic restaurants, they are not alone. A 2007 study by the University of Minnesota found that Americans claim to be positive and even optimistic about the word “diversity” but are unable to explain its value or give examples of its benefits. The researchers found that even people who work in the field of race relations stumble when asked to list its benefits.
In 2009, a San Francisco radio host named Marty Nemko agreed to host an on-air debate on
workplace diversity in which the author of this book was to argue that it was a weakness, not a strength. Mr. Nemko contacted a Georgia-based diversity consultant whose slogan was “Stronger Performance Through Diversity,” fully expecting that he would be happy to argue the other side. The consultant declined, admitting that he did not think diversity was a strength, only that it can be made to work better with “diversity management” of the kind he offers.”
Jared Taylor, White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century

Dada Bhagwan
“The absence of conflict creating intent is itself Moksh (liberation).”

“They need foes so that they can justify the spending. The misuse of power. The curtail of liberty. Control. These so called, terror groups, always seem to come along at the right time.
Misdirections are what make people think that they are seeing the truth.
You can arm people with sticks, but not with knowledge or wisdom.”
Anthony T. Hincks

Mladen Đorđević
“Calling for peace means that war is inevitable.”
Mladen Đorđević, Svetioničar - Pomračenje
