You do have an impact on reality.
“Remember upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all.”
– Alexander the Great
Your action influence the fate of all. Taking action or not, you influence. By not taking action, you choose your action.
“Laws control the lesser man… Right conduct controls the greater one.”
– Mark Twain
Violence is never a good option. Violence will bring violence. In the end, you’ll have to live with what you have done. Even if you did it for the greater good.
“Do unto others as you would have done to you.”
Respect the golden rule.
What you do to others will always come back to you. Sometimes in ways that you can’t associate.
