OUR MISSION STATEMENT
If we can begin treating each other with greater dignity and respect, over time our country and the world can become a much better place. It’s a simple idea, but not simplistic at all.
We advocate for finding and developing peaceful approaches that oppose Hate and Violence in religious or political attitudes, and we are also exploring pragmatic approaches on the community level to stopping the violence that hate generates.
We’re committed and we’re working hard. Please help us help others by giving us your ideas and solutions along with your financial support to the extent you can. Thank you.
WHY NO HATE NO VIOLENCE?
Plain & Simple – There Should Be No Place In This World For Hate Or Violence
- NOT IN POLICE OR CIVIL FORCE RELATIONS
- NOT IN GENDER RELATIONS
- NOT IN RELIGION
- NOT IN RACE RELATIONS
- NOT IN POLITICS
Over time this simple idea can help the U.S. and the world become a much better place. What we need right now is an alternative ideology to combat terrorists, racists, bigots, religious zealots, politicians, and anyone else spreading hate and violence. If you hate anything; ask yourself why? Hate is a feeling and emotion that everyone has a power to change.
In America, we are fortunate to have free speech and the ability to believe in what we want. We can disagree with a belief and promote our own. What we should NOT do though is promote hate or violence to accomplish our goals.
This theory is a safer ideology for all parties. And all individuals. It is an alternative approach to combat terrorists, racism, politics, and gender relations. Who can logically disagree with these thoughts?
Who can argue with it? Who should listen to them? If they hate, that is their problem. Show them how to make a change in how to talk without hate.
If you ask anyone if they believe in hate or violence, most would say no. So why then do we have so much in the world? Those who preach violence through the guise of religion and or any other organization should not be able to partake in the tax deductions recognized and provided by the U.S. Government. Many other benefits are given to those who promote violence.
If you believe in hate, you may know some others who agree with you, but the majority of your peers, friends, family, and society may not. If you do or promote violence in this world, someone, a group, a government, a country, or all the above will always be against you. Violence is the last resort to solve issues of any kind.
We all need to work on discouraging hate and violence in the world, which starts with us and our elected leaders and politicians. The more we identify with this ideology, the faster we can minimize hate and violence in the world, and the sooner we can help spread the message and have others do the same.
Human rights, especially women’s rights, need to be promoted again, and more often. The more we can eliminate, or minimize hate, the better the world will be. Some ideas will work better than others, but together we have the ability to change this ideology. It might take another hundred years to change all of this in the world and the way most people think, and approach hate and violence, but every person that adopts this type of thinking will help in the fight for peace and tolerance around the world. The U.S. stopped promoting human rights around the world over the last several years allowing the problem to grow.
Also, if you can change your attitude and eliminate “Hate and Violence” the happier you will be. Hate does not make anyone happy. If you believe in no hate no violence, scream it from the rooftops, share it with a community leader, a co-worker, your local politician. Pass it on.
This ideology need to spread to people who can honestly and passionately get behind it and influence it, individuals(s) who can develop it into policies and spread the word and transform these words into action. Someone strong (like our President) who could be honest about the human shortcomings we all have could do the most.
We may not be able to eliminate all hate or violence in this world, but we together with similar thoughts and purpose can significantly minimize it. We can be the good guys again and create a platform from which we can work to eliminate the radical terrorists without just war, and mainly make ourselves feel better!
SHIFTING OUR ATTITUDE TO SHIFT THE WORLD
The longer I live, the more I realize how much impact attitude has on people’s lives. A person’s attitude is more important than education. It’s more important than money, circumstances, failures, successes, appearance or skill. It’s especially more important than what others think, say or do. The attitude of everyone involved will make or break a company, a church, a home – or a country.
Look at politics. A change in attitude could be one of the largest, fastest influences on our country’s political ideology. We need to go back to the days when politicians had an attitude of compromise. Instead of focusing on what they perceive will keep them or their party in office and in control, they should compromise for the people they serve. Politicians need to shift their attitude back to the time when they existed to help the people they are sworn to serve and who elected them to do so.
The change starts by shifting the political focus. Once politicians start focusing on the issues instead of gossip and their own special interests, the attitudes of the people will start to change. The silent majority will wake up, become proud of their country, and get involved in working for everyone, not just themselves. In turn, the politicians’ attitudes will continue to shift, and they’ll start working harder to agree instead of disagree. And the cycle will continue, moving the country closer to actually fixing our problems.
The remarkable thing is that this change is something we, the people, can make every day. Every day we have a choice regarding the attitude we embrace. We cannot change the past, nor the fact that other people will act a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. But we can change our attitude. And we’re the only ones who can change it.
I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we react to it. So change how you react to all things in this world, and you might just change the world itself. Hopefully, our leaders will actually lead us in this effort.
