Extreme Kindness

Extreme Kindness

Indifference

I was asked recently,

“how much does Extreme Kindness truly change the worlds problems?”

The problems being: War, Poverty, Racism, Disease, Hunger, Murder, Corporate Greed and Political Corruption.

My answer,

“I do not know”

My goal for Extreme Kindness is not to directly bring about World Peace or solve any other of those massive and frightening global issues.

I’m no genius and I am not a great man.

But, rarely have I been indifferent.

Extreme Kindness wakes me up. It gets peoples attention. It can take away a persons indifference.

Indifference to suffering. A lack of connection to the world around us. This is all I wish to solve. Then maybe someone might teach me how to help make a real difference.

Edmund Burke

All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.

Elie Wiesel

The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.

George Bernard Shaw

Indifference is the essence of inhumanity.

Helen Keller

Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all — the apathy of human beings.

Joan Vinge

Indifference is the strongest force in the universe. It makes everything it touches meaningless. Love and hate don’t stand a chance against it.

    Met the Extreme Kindness Crew this weekend at a conference. What an eye opener it was to realize they go around the world to encourage people to be kind to one another. I 2 was lucky I guess in having a mother that I shall never surpass and who has taught me this without me realizing it until this weekend.

    Brad- thanks for sharing your story. I’ve been thrown in the caregiver role for my mom as well at an earlier age than most. I found out a few minutes prior to meeting with you guys that my role shall continue. I hope that my mom will be as proud of me as I’m sure yours is of you.

    PS- Saw people holding up signs of “Free Hug” downtown Vancouver 2day. Would have given them one but was driving and light turned green. Thanks for making me smile :)

    “Indifferent is not the way we are meant be” Anon
    My post last Dec 2006 on “Just One Thing”, on my blog, relates my feelings about being ‘indifferent’ to things…
    I enjoyed these quotes as well.
