Understanding how this follows from the definition will require some knowledge and some autistic analysis. glosoli raised this point for me with his comment on the previous post:
It is very hard to love one’s neighbour I have realised.
How do you actually do that, in our modern society, when local bonds just don’t exist, and most neighbours are heathens anyway?
(My next door neighbours are Indian, been there for 9 months, and I have yet to even see them, let alone speak to them.I really don’t want to love them. They’re Indians).
His instincts are correct, but can you figure out why? It’s tricky. I thought about leaving it as an exercise for the reader, but decided it was too hard. Try it out, then click through to the comments to see my explanation.
