THURMAN’S CORNER – 4/12/21
A Sense of Self
The need for right desire is ever present … with reference to our attitude toward other people, we say sometimes, “I know I should not feel as I do toward the Germans, or the Japanese or the Negroes, but the truth is, I feel that way and I really do not want to feel differently. I know that I ought to want to, but I don’t.” the crux of the problem is not merely that we desire the right and find it difficult to achieve it, but it is also true that, again and again, we do not desire to desire the right.
