1."Love one another" it has been said is the supreme law, but what power made it so? Upon what
rational authority does the gospel of love rest? Why should I not hate mine enemies - if I "love" them does that not place
me at their mercy?
2. Is it natural for enemies to do good unto each other - and WHAT IS GOOD?
3. Can the torn and bloody victim "love" the blood-splashed jaws that rend him limb from limb?
4. Are we not all predatory animals by instinct? If humans ceased wholly from preying upon each
other, could they continue to exist?
5. Is not "lust and carnal desire" a more truthful term to describe "love" when applied to the
continuance of the race? Is not the "love" of the fawning scriptures simply a euphemism for sexual activity, or was the "great
teacher" a glorifier of eunuchs?
6. Love your enemies and do good to them that hate and use you - is this not the despicable philosophy
of the spaniel that rolls upon its back when kicked?
7. Hate your enemies with a whole heart, and if a man smite you on one cheek, SMASH him on the
other!; smite him hip and thigh, for self-preservation is the highest law!
8. He who turns the other cheek is a cowardly dog!
9. Give blow for blow, scorn for scorn, doom for doom - with compound interest liberally added
thereunto! Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, aye four-fold, a hundred-fold!
Make yourself a Terror to your adversary, and when he goeth his way, he will possess much additional
wisdom to ruminate over. Thus shall you make yourself respected in all the walks of life, and your spirit - your immortal
- shall live, not in an intangible paradise, but in the brains and sinews of those whose respect you have gained.
