#591 I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones....




I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones (from Albert Einstein).


Einstein stated: “I have always condemned the use of the atomic bomb against Japan.” Five months before his November 1954 death, he explained “one great mistake in my life…when I signed the letter to President Roosevelt recommending that atom bombs be made…" Separately he said: "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." Some of his quotes included saying “Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.” “It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder, using force always attracts men of low morality.”  “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” 
 
Whilst we generally can’t stop a world war, our inaction however, often allows evil to flourish. Taking action can be dangerous as well, time consuming, tedious, and a real pain in the neck, but it is the thing that is most effective at minimizing the danger and evil in the world. So why is action important?   Action is what gets things done. Inaction means nothing gets done. Action, in the case of this quote, is about doing things to thwart, retard or deter the evil acts of others. The actions necessary to thwart evil acts is probably the most dangerous and the rarest. Such as breaking up a fight, scaring off a robber (or worse), these are actions of extreme bravery. It is an action the evil-doer is not expecting, as it is so rarely done. For example: - How many of you know of someone that is being abused by their partner, ex, bashed even and have done nothing.


The actions necessary to retard or deter evil acts are what most of us can do most easily, and with little to no risk. These might include joining a neighbourhood watch group, keeping your neighbourhood clean, well-lit, and unappealing to thieves, or in the case of the abuse reporting the absue so the person can get help. You can always remain anonymous. There are lots of things one can do to help in the eternal fight against evil, and to make the world less dangerous. Unfortunately evil is everywhere, and the wolf is always at the door.


What are you willing to do to make your part of the world less dangerous, and to help diminish the evil in your back yard? It won’t be easy, but I believe it will be worth the effort.
