Hate begets hate, violence engenders violence, hypocrisy is answered by hypocrisy, war generates war, and love creates love. Sorokin. The ways and Power of Love.

Unselfish love has enormous creative and therapeutic potentialities, far greater than
most people think. Love is a life-giving force, necessary for physical, mental, and moral health.

Love is the most powerful antidote against criminal, morbid, and suicidal
tendencies; against hate, fear, and psychoneuroses. It is an indispensable condition for deep and lasting happiness. It is goodness and freedom at their loftiest. It is the finest and most powerful educational force for the ennoblement of
humanity. Finally, only the power of unbounded love practiced in regard to all human beings can
defeat the forces of interhuman strife, and can prevent the pending extermination of man by man on this planet. Without love, no armament, no war, no diplomatic machinations, no coercive police force, no school education, no economic or political measures, not even hydrogen bombs can prevent the pending catastrophe. Only love can accomplish this miracle, providing, however, we know well the nature of love and the efficient ways of its production, accumulation, and use.
