There is no merit in subjecting elevated souls to cruelty of any type as in most cases such rare souls succumb to mistreatment. So why give them pain and then expect time to act as healer? Why should we wipe out the tears from their eyes? Instead, why do not we keep innocent person's eyes away from the tears altogether?
Believe it or not, wounds do not get healed with time; instead, they turn into cancerous cells which kill the affected person. Such unhealed wounds either produce villains (mostly villains) or heroes-the rebels. In both the cases, the rebels in form of heroes and villains bring phenomenal changes in unexpected forms not in tune with our stereotyped versions. Since negativity dominates the world, we see more villains and fewer heroes when we subject good people to pains of all sorts. The feeling of retribution is more powerful in our times than sainthood which rests on forgiveness. So it is better that we do not give wounds and expect time to heal. In the first place, let's not harass, torture and deceive an innocent soul.
It has been my experience that people play politics in name of goodness; in actuality, they served their vested interests. For instance, big nations attack smaller nations to restore democracy there; in reality, they have eye on advantages prevailing in that nation. In other words, people who subject good souls to cruel gestures often have dubious intentions. That's why I feel conflicts, sufferings and wars, triggered in name of creating better world, should be avoided at all costs. They serve no greater purpose other than giving rise to complexities of worse types.
Anyway, I believe that people fighting for real cause are never losers even if they get wiped out totally. It's also my experience that there are few to fight against mighty forces for the restoration of better values. The worth of these few good people, the salt of the earth, cannot be measured in narrow terms like victory and defeat, more so when results are dictated by will of Lord!
