I watched a documentary about people from America travelling thousands of miles by boat to Antactica to prevent Japanese from illegally harvesting whales. So what? Why go to so much effort? Just another group of liberal do-gooders? A bunch of hippies? Anarchists?
Or are they caring people? People who can feel compassion not only for other humans, but also other species. People who actually allow themselves to feel. There's a correlation here to policing (and eventually to war). When a human being sees the other as just a number, an object, an enemy, they have lost touch with their compassionate part. The part that realizes we are all connected. It then becomes 'their job' to stay in control. It becomes easy to say, "I was told to do this." It becomes natural to see the other as a threat. So when Scott Yoos is put in "pain restraints" for throwing paper towels in a dumpster the cops are just doing "their job". He is a threat. To whom? To what, law & order? Or to the world view of the cops who want to justify their actions?
Why do so many people show up at a city council meeting to stand up for Scott? To stand against police brutality? Just hippies? Those damn protestors? Trouble makers? Anarchists? They were not there. They have no dog in this fight. But wait, they do feel a connection to another human being at the level of being human themselves. Being human is not "their job", it's who they are.
So when you want to draw a line between people, rather than use the 'right & wrong' ruler, maybe think in terms of those who act from a feeling of compassion and those who are just out to do "their job".
