While democracy can be periodically delayed,
It can never be permanently defeated.
In this truth, in this faith, we trust.
For while we have our eyes on the future,
History has its eyes on us.

If we merge mercy with might, and might with right,
Then love becomes our legacy.

Let us leave behind a country
better than the one we were left.

There is always light,
If only we’re brave enough to see it,
If only we’re brave enough to be it.

-- The Hill We Climb

We lay down our arms 
So that we can reach our arms out to oneanother.
We seek harm to none, and harmony for all.

-- The Hill We Climb

-四大終極關懷

1. Everyone is worse off when they let authoritarians gain leverage.
2. If Putin wins anything from this conflict, he will not stop with Ukraine.
3. I don’t see how the war can end without Putin being dead.

「今之從政者何如?」
子曰:「噫!斗筲之人,何足算也。」

(魯定公)曰:「一言而喪邦,有諸?」
孔子對曰:「言不可以若是其幾也。人之言曰:『予無樂乎為君,唯其言而莫予違也。』如其善而莫之違也,不亦善乎?如不善而莫之違也,不幾乎一言而喪邦乎?」

“从战前到战时,无理、虚伪、伪善一直支配着我们的社会。最没有道义的人最热衷于宣讲道义。最丰衣足食之辈是艰苦朴素最有力的宣传者。“没有道义就没有胜利”这一信条的真理性在他们自身的历史上得以证实。这次惨败的真正原因也就是道义的丧失,不在于百姓,而在于统治阶级,这已经是明了的事实。”
