As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Zero Aggression,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach himself.” – Thomas Paine
My Commentary: The paradox of peace…
The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “In Order to Live, You Must Die“…
Rayn: In order to live, you must die.
Genaire: That’s true, but let’s enjoy the living part first.
Renat S.: Reminds me of: “In order to change, I have to die” (Zemfira, Russian lyricist, composer and singer)
Jason R.: Obsession 🙂
Renat S.: Devotion
Renat S.: “Life” – (“leip” – old Indian) remain, continue, persevere
Jenna G.: In order to die, you must live…
Daniel Sv.: I suppose by “die”, you mean to abolish your existing biases in order to receive new wisdom?
I originally posted the following statement onto my Facebook wall…

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by the page, “Truth Beckons“…
“Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.” – George Orwell, 1984
Renat S.: Sometimes one needs consciousness not to rebel
Rayn: Indeed. Yet, when injustice becomes law, rebellion becomes duty – to paraphrase another famous quote. Have you ever read Orwell’s book, “1984,” by the way?
Renat S.: No, I haven’t; thank you for suggestion
Rayn: You’re welcome. 🙂
