Many of these so-called religious experts tell me I need to love every other individual as myself in order to achieve divinity.
I think they have it exactly backwards. Love life, not individuals. To prune the tree of life is to understand the sacred duty of the Knight, the Zen master, and the leader.
If you love life, you want the failures to go away. Otherwise, they cannot help do what they do, which is fail including: crime, poverty, opportunism and passive aggression.
We have seven billion people and many of them are idiots. Let's keep the best and clear out the rest, leaving more space for nature and future, smarter, better humans!
