Peace ambassadors

I am greatly impressed by Albert Schweitzer's life and achievements. He is a human being of higher caliber than my humble self. And still I can't get rid of a feeling... feeling of complete futility of his cause.

The same thing I feel about the unlucky peace activist from Italy.

It is not a logical feeling. Neither it is anti-Christian.

It is just feeling that what we see as "unselfish help" can actually be harm. Feeling, that there are times when a wall can better a bridge. Feeling, that honest exploitation can better welfare. Feeling, that honest rejection can better compassion.

Because that compassion is somehow very very false.
