THURMAN’S CORNER – 9/27/20
There must always remain as a part of the total equipment for survival at least the psychology of threat as a weapon of defense. All of this is a part of the problem of violence in life. It is curious how we do not even respect the person who does not seem able to affirm his right to be. There is an essential dignity in human life, yes, in all of life, that must somehow be asserted from within, or else life is stripped of any true significance. In religious terms, this essential dignity is the basis of reverence and is the symbol of the divine in life.
