On Love and Loyalty

Gandhi had it really - a great take on love - we are to meet evil with good. That is not resistance per se. We are to be a force for good in the face of evil in such a way as we do powerful good to all so that our actions ultimately even benefit those we oppose. Which is why loyalty is always the key - not obedience. Obedience can sometimes be a small thing, an act in which perhaps you serve your master but you do not thus always do what is best. Loyalty involves doing what is best in all circumstances.
