I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions,
but laws and institutions must go hand in hand

institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times.

Looking at a sunset, just for a second
you forget your separateness:
you are the sunset.
That is the moment when you feel the beauty of it.

you have come back to your separate,
enclosed entity of the ego.
Now the mind is speaking.

Not in the sense of intentionally speaking untruths,
but in the sense of carrying so much historical

is an untruth - an opinion, an assumption,
a point-of-view based on our past.

"I realized I was looking at you,
in your visit, through old glasses.
Speaking old words.
Telling old stories.
I realize that in my life I've made so many
physical changes and I need to give my spirit time to catch up."
Time for my spirit to look at my friend
through the new glasses of current life experiences.
Old friends are precious.
They become even more treasured when they are wrapped
in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.

and who, therefore, in the next instant
(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion... while truth again reverts to a new minority.
- Soren Kierkegaard

but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy,

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought

and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism
and exposing the country to danger.
It works the same in every country.
