     Each person is unique.  Even if you love that person, it is impossible to please him/her all the time.  From fear of losing the closeness with that person, most of us shut our mouth, eyes and ears.  We lie to ourselves and to others.  Eventually, no matter what, one loses dignity in eyes of all.  Whereas, uneducated fearlessness can only bring disaster. 

    political resistance is all too different than the home or workplace situations.  Our heritage teaches us to take care of self, family, town we live in, country we live in and the world -- in that order.  Only the one who is capable of leaving all attachments can be fearless.
