Yesterday, a friend sent me a page full of right wing style political cartoons and bumper stickers. One of the bumper stickers said this: "Why should I pay for your health care?" (A less polite way of putting that is, "I've got mine; screw you.")
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Of course, there are many appropriate responses to that question. One is the rhetorical, "Why should I pay for your police protection?" or "Why should I pay for your children's education?" But the most powerful and acurate response is, "Because we are not really separate; we belong to each other."
