The Mistaken Interpretation of Non Violence

The little people of the mountain, without defending had been massacred, involving the same children, to honour the principle of non-violence. The Non-defence of children, defenceless is idolatry to a principle sacrificing the community and children themselves (symbolism of the sacrificial goat on the bottom that watches the massacre of villagers with startled look).

The Non-defence of children, defenceless is idolatry to a principle sacrificing the community and children themselves (symbolism of the sacrificial goat on the bottom that watches the massacre of villagers with startled look).

I want to evoke the historical personality of Gandhi, so similar to that of Jesus; you should not forget what he actually taught, not what they would make him to say.

In his diary, “old as mountains: the truth and non-violence,” he says, “if I had to choose between armed struggle and cowardice, the truth teaches me to choose armed struggle; but just because I'm a follower of truth, the truth, when there is no cowardice and there is awareness and courage, teach me the path of non-violence”.

In the same spirit, when he was reported that a small population without defending had been massacred, involving the same children, to honour the principle of non-violence; Gandhi regretted the false and erroneous interpretation of this principle, saying that non-violence was a free choice and not a reasoned position taken arbitrary, it is the best method of fighting under condition of maturity and awareness, a risk accepted with courage, but one could not oblige the children, the weak and the helpless and all those, who had no opportunity to choose to be involved in the ultimate sacrifice that went beyond self-defence.

Children were not supposed to experience violence, being defensible, in love of the principle of ”non-violence" professed by the fathers.

In this way, the little ones, the weak, defenceless, the old one would have suffered violence, “not doing violence to violent", which would not have been certain be the principle of, which would have been even more destructive in the same “force" that would exert on the transgressors, as non violence responds to rationality, to truth, that is at the service of love respecting the weaker, friend or foe, and it is not idolatry to a principle that sacrificing the community and kids and themselves.

Gandhi also argued in favour of euthanasia, which, according to him, matched with the rule of “non-violence" as extreme means to abolish violence of an incurable pain.

However everyone tries to see what he thinks or is used to think or do not to see what bothers him, and avoid telling him or teaching him otherwise.

All this is an important part of the thought of Gandhi, whether you like it or not.

As we often see, beyond the truth of the matter, we attribute to others what we would like others to be.

Not only had Gandhi a vision of ethics-individual, but also social, ethical and economical- - political.

Because of this, like all the greatest he was killed, he was not killed as it is told by a “mad Muslims", his was a political assassination (reminiscent of Kennedy).

Gandhi was a dangerous obstacle to the policy of the Congress Party headed by Neru; he was an obstacle (as in Italy Moro in the '70s) for the interests of international capitalism.

Gandhi never wanted to the partition of India between Muslims and Hindus with the immediate retreat of the British.

Everyone thinks as he wishes, and tries to answer these questions, Buddha, Gandhi and Jesus attempted to respond wisely to the question of non-violence to themselves and to others, we have to do this too, without closing our eyes to the facts.

Only following the path "of the last who shall be first, and the first last" (thus avoiding the concept of “last”, “first”, “coincidence” and “removal of opposites”), we can feel universal love, which will enable us to love and help both our friends and enemies looking for humanization; just like the sun, we shall spread light, life and warmth not only to our friends, but also to the secret needs of our enemies.

However, the "turn the other cheek" motto refers exclusively to those who have "another cheek," but the poor, conversely, have none.

Therefore, this ethical motto addresses especially the authorities and the rich, those who have the choice and means to freely act; it does not refer to those who live outside a “moral context" and have no freedom to choose their means and acquire knowledge: this truth must be revealed to all the theologians, wise men, politicians and "non-violent" activists (in words) of the world; to all the priests, and bishops who address the humiliated and offended masses, to all the poor Lazarus in Africa, Latin America and the whole world.

Moreover, the authorities, in the true sense of the word, should comply with the provisions of the Gospel – especially with the Parable of the "Prodigal Son" - and adhere to the Canticle of Mary, mother of Jesus.

The love of the prophets, of these men guided by love, springs from the path taken by Prophet Abraham, the father of all the prophets.

A heart full of love is the result of intelligence, strength-knowledge, and acts against any supremacy; it precisely arises from the unity of life stating that

"The true worship of God means breaking the yoke around the neck of the oppressed and set the slaves free" (Isaiah the prophet, 58), i.e. it stems from an agreement established with the poor, the oppressed and the last in the whole world.

Modern Prophetism circulates on the network, since the network provides a bridge, as evidenced by a modern prophet, Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church.

In fact, to use his words: "We are at war, but this is not a religion war";

Well, I think that "In a society where war does not bring any return and everybody - in every social class – only takes a huge loss, there shall be no war."

Therefore, we shall use modern prophetism to fight, with clear words of peace, against the masters of war, who take advantage of  deluded people deprived of true values such as:

- Respect for life,
- Respect for the ideologies of others,
- Respect for the territory,
- Respect for the property of others.
