How can the words and philosophy of the learned Socrates and the war on truth against Ptolemy and Galileo assist us in these troubled times? How can we grasp the idea of unmarked vans and warriors clad in armor and masks coming to whisk away peaceful protesters? 

In this episode I offer some wise words about malevolence, and why you should look out for it in your life, why you should purge it from you, and why you, me, all of us must go deep into our hearts for Truth, and not stand for malevolence. 

Looking up at Neowise the comet I was reminded of a time when I opened my heart to someone, when I was younger, more innocent, ignorant perhaps….to someone who asked for a place in my world and I hesitatingly acquiesced. Then, after only a short time, weeks actually, in my all too youthful years of existence began to experience the reality of a ticking time bomb that was silently brewing, where I had offered safety and warmth and nourishment of the soul, unconditional love, this friend began to show a malevolence of the likes I had never before experienced.


Listen and learn from the aged wisdom, for else we are doomed to repeat history. 

Music for the episode is from Fork In The Blender, off their album called Training Bra Sweat. You can find more from them on the free music archive and at http://www.comfortstand.com
