And, yes, I do speak with respect to NDT's understanding, which has
been laid at folks feet - gratis - all the work =done= - given whole.
Try to see the 'moving away from' through my eyes.
It's like folks having been deluged with nurturance, then,
withholding nurturance from others who stand before them, 'starving'
for want of the same-stuff.
That's about as plain as I can say it.

| respect to them.
| You see? It cannot be that we 'conveniently' 'forget' all of our
| Historical 'short-comings' in order to 'punish' not-self folks for
| doing things that are analogous to stuff that we, ourselves, have
| But we, also, cannot turn a blind eye to 'short-comings' - just let
| Savagery reign in the world.
| What we can do is see that others are living through the
| that our Ancestors lived-through. We can see that, through our own
| Agony - in particular, with respect to the American Civil War,
| remains the most-savage blood-letting that has descended upon This
| Nation - with respect to our own, analogous, 'trespasses', we have
| been able to advance our understanding of the Rights of all People,
| And we can see that, just because other folks lag behind us in
| understanding of the Rights of all People, everywhere, it's
| duplicitous of us to resort to savagery when others are doing stuff
| that's analogous to what we did before, through the Agonies that
| derived in our errors, we learned about the Rights of all People,
| Rather, we should proceed in =understanding= that other folks
| 'simply' do lag-behind us in their understanding of the Rights of
| People, everywhere.
| This understanding is America's Great-Strength, but, look - we're
| making no efforts to exert that Great-Strength. All we're doing is
| something akin to what we did to the Africans and Native Americans.
| We see only that which is familiar to us, forsaking any Honorable
| forebearance in light of our own History.
| And, as we do so, what could be America's Great-Purpose within the
| Human Family becomes 'muffled' and 'stiffled' - through our own
| What's wrong with taking a strong and mighty stand that is focused
| upon Teaching of the Rights of all People, everywhere? What's wrong
| with standing against Slaughter?
| What's wrong with seeing that, yes, folks who are recapitulating
| own Historical Savagery, are, in fact, traversing a 'path' that's
| analogous to the 'path' that we, ourselves, followed?
| What's wrong with Teaching folks with respect to the Agony
| What's wrong with working to help all folks, everywhere, see that
| there's a better way - that we, having lived through the Agonies of
| our own transgressions - our own forsaking ourselves to analogous
| vile Savagery - =know= there's a better way?
| Why not tell it like it is?
| Why not see that the savage 'tide' that carries others into the
| slaughtering way is the same 'tide' that rent us apart?
| Why not go forth with understanding of all that's entailed in our
| Why not lift Humanity up? Standing against Savagery because we know
| Savagery through our own fault?
| America has done so much to transcend its own Savage History -

| purchased-in-blood triumph over our own past errors.
| Such routinely goes unspoken, 'replaced' by our 4th of July
| Celebrations, and our post-facto seeing that, yes, America has done
| lot of good in the world.
| But are we so 'stupid' that we cannot look into the 'mirror' and
| our own History, recapitualted in the Savage acts of others who lag
| behind America in understanding?
| Note well, in what I'm saying here, I =do not= 'condone' Savagery

| in so doing, force the 'clock' back, around the globe, to Medieval
