"“Are you not thirsty?” said the Lion.
“I am dying of thirst,” said Jill.
“Then drink,” said the Lion.
“May I — could I — would you mind going away while I do?” said Jill.
The Lion answered this only by a look and a very low growl. And as Jill gazed at its motionless bulk, she realized that she might as well have asked the whole mountain to move aside for her convenience.
The delicious rippling noise of the stream was driving her nearly frantic.
“Will you promise not to — do anything to me, if I do come?” said Jill.
“I make no promise,” said the Lion.
Jill was so thirsty now that, without noticing it, she had come a step nearer.
“Do you eat girls?” she said.
“I have swallowed up girls and boys, women and men, kings and emperors, cities and realms,” said the Lion. It didn’t say this as if it were boasting, nor as if it were sorry, nor as if it were angry. It just said it.
“I daren’t come and drink,” said Jill.
“Then you will die of thirst,” said the Lion.
“Oh dear!” said Jill, coming another step nearer. “I suppose I must go and look for another stream then.”
“There is no other stream,” said the Lion.”"

"You know, it’s really hard to shoot at someone you just shared a hot dog with the day before."

An unnamed man who participates in a monthly block party in Chesterfield County, VA, just south of Richmond. The parties—just one facet of local nonprofit which works in the neighborhood—are credited with building a sense of community that has helped lower crime rates.

What struck me about this comment is that it is so widely applicable, even on the foreign policy scale. When you get to know people, when you eat with them and they become your customers, it’s a lot more difficult to view them as the scary Other which deserves to be the target of war.

As Bastiat (maybe) said, “When goods don’t cross borders, soldiers will.”

This is one reason I love the internet: It makes it easier to meet people from all around the world. It’s not as good as a block party, but it’s way better than nothing. Below is a video from a couple years ago which encapsulates exactly what I mean:

I’m not an official representative of my country. but I know the streets of my town, I talk with my neighbors, my family, my friends and in the name of all these people …we love you.

We mean you no harm.

On the contrary, we want to meet, have some coffee and talk about sports.

Exposure is a genuine antidote to hate. Things like tariffs and minimum wages simply work to strengthen pre-existing prejudices, as they remove an available economic incentive to look beyond one’s favored parties.

It is freedom and cooperation, not restrictions and force, that can truly topple intolerance.

Honda Point Disaster was the largest peacetime loss of U.S. Navy ships. On the evening of September 8, 1923, seven destroyers, while traveling at 20 knots (37 km/h), ran aground at Honda Point, a few miles from the northern side of the Santa Barbara Channel off Point Arguello on the coast in Santa Barbara County, California. Two other ships grounded, but were able to maneuver free of the rocks. Twenty-three sailors died in the disaster.
