Reader comments about this quote:
In the light in which the statement was given, it is probably much more accurate than not. To travel in another's shoes, to move among those that are different from ourselves, to experience another's perspective and familiar proficiencies would perceivably or at least hopefully, eliminate hate, anger, ignorance, misconceptions and prejudice. A growing reality is that no matter how much walking is done in the shoes of reasonless/lack of logic hate, anger, prejudices, etc., harmony with the antithesis thereof will not materialize.

    Absolutely!  My family moved several times while I was growing up, each time to a new state and culture.  Later I traveled coast-to-coast and around the world.  I am humbled by the common people in the '3rd world' and admire the achievements of 'civilization.'  The people of the world are awakening, stretching beyond the bounds of governments that rule them.  Independence, liberty, mutual respect, responsibility ... it is the solution they have all been waiting for.  Only, waiting is not the solution, but to act, to reclaim one's rights, and to abstain from plundering each other for survival.  Socialism is a dismal con  I don't say failure because it is a racket that pays dearly.  But sooner or later, there is not enough to plunder to pay for citizens' loyalty  so to war they go!
