Exclusive Friendship

    EXCLUSIVE FRIENDSHIPS. An excellent and mild guy of my acquaintance has stated, "When fifty-one according to cent of the electorate consider in cooeperation rather than competition, the Ideal Commonwealth will quit to be a principle and end up a reality." That guys need to paintings collectively for the best of all may be very lovely, and I consider the day will come while these items could be, however the simple procedure of fifty-one according to cent of the voters casting ballots for socialism will not bring it about. 

    The matter of vote casting is certainly the expression of a sentiment, and after the ballots were counted there still remains the work to be done. A man would possibly vote right and act like a fool the rest of the year. The socialist who's full of bitterness, fight, faction and jealousy is developing an competition so one can hold him and all others like him in check. And this opposition is well, for even a very imperfect society is forced to defend itself in opposition to dissolution and a circumstance which is worse. To take over the monopolies and perform them for the good of society is not enough, and not suited either, so long as the concept of rivalry is rife. As long as self is uppermost in the minds of men, they will fear and hate other men, and under socialism there could be precisely the same scramble for place and power that we see in politics now. Society can never be reconstructed until its character members are reconstructed. Man must be born again. 

    When fifty-one in step with cent of the voters rule their own spirit and have positioned fifty-one per cent of their gift envy, jealousy, bitterness, hate, fear and silly pride out of their hearts, then socialism will be at hand, and not until then. The challenge is absolutely too big to eliminate in a paragraph, so I am just going to content myself here with the point out of one thing, the threat to society of different friendships among man and man, and woman and woman. No two persons of the equal intercourse can supplement each other, neither can they long uplift or advantage every other. Usually they deform the mental and non secular estate. We should have many associates or none.
     When two men start to "inform each different everything," they're trekking for senility. There ought to be a piece of well-described reserve. We are instructed that during be counted stable metallic as an example the molecules by no means touch. They by no means give up their individuality. We are all molecules of Divinity, and our persona need to now no longer be abandoned. Be your self, permit no guy be vital to you. Your buddy will suppose greater of you in case you preserve him at a bit distance. 

    Friendship, like credit, is highest in which it isn't used. I can apprehend how a strong man can have a great and abiding affection for a thousand other men, and call them all by name, but how he can regard someone of these men a good deal higher than some other and preserve his intellectual balance, I do not know. Let a person come near sufficient and he will seize you want a drowning person, and down you both go. In a close and one of a kind friendship guys partake of others' weaknesses. In shops and factories it happens constantly that men could have their chums. 

    These men relate to each other their troubles they keep nothing back they sympathize with each other, they mutually condole. They integrate and stand by each other. Their friendship is one of a kind and others see that it is. Jealousy creeps in, suspicion awakens, hate crouches around the corner, and these men integrate in mutual dislike for sure things and persons. They foment each other, and their sympathy dilutes sanity by spotting their troubles men make them real. Things get out of focus, and the sense of values is lost. By thinking some one is an enemy you evolve him into one. Soon others are worried and we have a clique. A clique is a friendship gone to seed. A clique develops into a faction, and a faction into a feud, and soon we've got a mob, which is a blind, stupid, insane, crazy, ramping and roaring mass that has lost the rudder. In a mob there are no people all are of one thoughts, and unbiased thought is gone. A feud is based on nothing it is a mistake a fool concept fanned into flame by a fool friend! And it may come to be a mob. 

    Every man who has had anything to do with communal life has observed that the clique is the disintegrating bacillus and the clique has its rise constantly in the specific friendship of  folks of the identical intercourse, who tell each other all unkind matters which can be said of every other "so be on your guard." Beware of the exclusive friendship! Respect all men and try to find the coolest in all. To accomplice simplest with the sociable, the witty, the wise, the brilliant, is a blunder go many of the plain, the stupid, the uneducated, and exercise your own wit and wisdom. You grow by giving haven't any favorites you maintain your buddy as a whole lot by retaining farfar from him as you do with the aid of using following after him. Revere him yes, however be natural and permit area intervene. Be a Divine molecule. Be your self and supply your buddy a threat to be himself. Thus do you gain him, and in reaping benefits him you gain your self. 

    The finest friendships are among folks that can do with out every other. Of direction there had been cases of exceptional friendship which can be talked about to us as grand examples of affection, however they're so uncommon and terrific that they serve to emphasise the reality that it's far particularly unwise for guys of everyday electricity and mind to exclude their fellow guys. A few guys, perhaps, who're massive sufficient to have a place in history, should play the a part of David to some other's Jonathan and but maintain the coolest will of all, however the most folks could engender bitterness and strife. And this beautiful dream of socialism, wherein each shall paintings for the coolest of all, will never come approximately until fifty-one according to cent of the adults shall abandon all distinctive friendships. Until that day arrives you may have cliques, denominations which can be cliques grown massive factions, feuds and coffee mobs. 

    Do not lean on anybody, and permit no person lean on you. The ideal society will be made from perfect people. Be a person and be a chum to everybody. When the Master admonished his disciples to love their enemies, he had in thoughts the reality that an different love is a mistake. Love dies when it's far monopolized. It grows through giving. Your enemy is one who misunderstands you why must you now no longer rise above the fog and notice his mistakess and recognize him for the best traits you locate in him?
