Innocence


Song Ling, Innocence

Innocence shows us what needs conserving
and what needs liberating.

Without innocence liberalism is permissiveness,
and conservatism is fascism.
Fascism destroys the innocent quickly;
Permissiveness destroys them more slowly.
That is the only difference.

Thanks, rvick.
I was feeling a bit fed up with the use of the terms 'conservative/fascist' and 'liberal/socialist' that get used so much these days in political mudslinging.

Great insight !! But the point is how to restore innocence ?
Shri Mataji 's instructions are attention on Mother Earth, being thoughtless aware.
Is there any fast lane ?
