Perpetual Placidity and Peace-Mindedness

Our political world is always on the verge of sliding into a bad situation. In that situation, whenever malicious and always-despicable considerations of attacking others for no reason, and where feelings of excessive pride would, in theory, take precendence over consideration of a level of self-respect and defence of integrity, which, notably, some of those we encountered in past times were actually lacking (while the vast majority were not), for reasons while understandable, yet in our eyes unacceptable with regard to individual biographies, we as individuals or as groups, must task ourselves with trying to shake off the past of human history and with starting anew in a civilised as well as, chiefly, peace-loving way while not losing ourselves in the most dispicable un-way: terrorist violence. Which is God-forbidden.

We as faithful legalists must continually task ourselves with thinking things through in an an ethically-grounded, fresh-and situationally-unbiased, slow and gradual, always peaceful manner, however difficult this might be, from a position of strength or a position of weakness, within the set frames of clear, more than less transparent and within democratic rules. Founded upon as little violence as ever possible as well as the absence of any war wherever and whenever possible, now and in future. This must go for the Abrahamic religions: Jewish, Christian, Muslim, as it must go for our West and for the East.

To us, a key date is each year’s widely celebrated German unification which had marked the beginning of a social process, when feelings and thoughts of mutual understanding (from either side), began to grow again, carried until today by both female and male citizens or vice-versa, in a spirit of relative equality. The process has not ended, and it might, in the case of Germany not any sooner, take another generation of citizens, if not many, to complete it more if not less, but to respect broad demarcated lines never, never to be crossed, and imposed restraint by elements of the un-common and the un-selfrespecting elements of the outside world.

It has been, for some families, a difficult process, and the absence of illegal force within German society ought to have had to prove itself to be most beneficial, not, however also, as a means but as a core tenet of policy, to be executed by those who are legally empowered in this way only: in a way which is marked by the absence of force and the protection of the integrity of the peace-minded individual. This is what characterises Perpetual, i.e. constant Placidity, i.e. self-respect, respect for the non-violent individual and legal punishment of those violent for no reason.
