Side note to my last post: That quote may have been Hendrix referencing either Indian spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy or perhaps British Prime Minister William Ewart Gladsone. Or it could have been originally from a 1948 volume of The National Elementary Principal.

Whatever the case, it’s an idea worth remembering, and even more worth sharing widely. Also, it is worth recognizing that its history as an idea may date back to at least the 1800s, which shows us just how slow we as a species are to recognize and effect change, especially on a large scale. We can, and should, do better, for ourselves and for generations to come.
