  • If you want a better world, you have to move in that direction.

  • You have to give up the things that prevent the world from becoming better.

  • When people got sick and began to die, they said "It's the wrath of God!

  • They're sick, they're being punished", or "That's their karma."

  • But the research attitude of the scientist says "Karma bullshit!

  • There's probably some swamp of mosquitoes with malaria, or rats- something!"

  • Or "There's a lot of food growing here and the soil is exhausted

  • in iron and manganese,

  • and these people are suffering from malnutrition and have brain damage",

  • not because it's their karma, which is strictly fascist horseshit!

  • And it's because that men haven't taken on the responsibility of saying

  • "Let's make the world a better place"

  • rather then get down on your knees and saying

  • "Let us have no more war, and let us have a brotherhood of man,

  • and let our neighbors be peaceful and lovable..."

  • All you have to do is be lovable and peaceful

  • and discourage war-like attitudes.

  • This is a job that religion ought to be involved in.

  • If you believe that there is a supreme being,

  • the supreme being would want you to do the things that bring about

  • the brotherhood of man on earth. Not pray for it; DO it!

  • Don't pray for good corn crops; dig and irrigate the ground!

  • Grow healthy food. Do the best you can to take care of life.

  • Men of science try to find answers, not merely say

  • "Well, I hope you'll have a happy new year..."

  • Why don't you buy him an encyclopedia or a set of books

  • or good music or something that will make his life happier?

  • Here's where you get the message real hard.

  • Suppose I went to a doctor with ... gangrene in this region of the leg,

  • and the doctor says "Sit down," took out all his instruments,

  • put them on the table (very sincere doctor) and he said

  • "Believe me, I hope your infection goes away, I really hope it does."

  • Then he gets up and walks away!

  • Well, this is what the language of 'normal' people sounds like to me.

  • The job is to get up off your ass and go to work.

  • Ready to go to work?
