POSITIVE MESSAGE

We all want to live by each other’s happiness, not
by each other’s misery.
We don’t want to hate and despise one another.
In this world there is room for everyone and the
earth is rich and can provide for everyone.
The way of life can be free and beautiful.

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves
in: machinery that gives abundance has left us in
want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness
hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little:
More than machinery we need humanity;
More than cleverness we need kindness and
gentleness.
Without these qualities, life will be violent and
all will be lost.

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer
together.
The very nature of these inventions cries out for
the goodness in men, cries out for universal
brotherhood for the unity of us all.
Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout
the world, millions of despairing men, women and
little children, victims of a system that makes
men torture and imprison innocent people. To those
who can hear me I say “Do not despair”.

The power they took from the people, will return
to the people and so long as men die now liberty
will never perish…

Soldiers – don’t give yourselves to brutes, who
regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to
think and what to feel, who drill you, diet you,
treat you as cattle, as cannon fodder.

You have the love of humanity in your hearts.
You don’t hate – only the unloved hate.

In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is
written ” the kingdom of God is within man ” – not
one man, nor a group of men – but in all men – in
you, the people.

You the people have the power to create happiness.
You the people have the power to make life free
and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful
adventure.
Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that
will give men a chance to work, that will give you
the future and old age and security.
Let us fight to free the world, to do away with
national barriers, do away with greed, with hate
and intolerance.
Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where
science and progress will lead to all men’s
happiness.
