People Learn By Example

There is an old saying, "You can bring a horse to water but you cannot make him drink". This is absolutely true but the same thing is true of people as well. You really cannot make anyone do anything. So, if you are trying to teach someone the best you can do peacefully is to demonstrate what you want them to learn yourself. They may be interested in what you are doing and they may not be. But this is how the world changes all the time. Forcing people to do anything only causes more chaos and bloodshed in the world and never ending revenge. If you want to change the world set a good example and hope others will follow your lead. Whether they follow your example or not at least you set out a worthwhile pattern for others to emulate, improve on or re-engineer and thereby make their lives and potentially all lives both human and animal better here on earth and beyond both now and in the future.
