Life is not a joke

The true lesson Martin Luther King teaches is the exact opposite of what many take away from hearing the words 

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”

Because that arc doesn’t bend on its own. It takes effort. It takes action. It takes speech after speech, and march after march.

The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice

This is a moral universe, which means that despite all the evidence that seems to be to the contrary, there is no way that evil and injustice and oppression and lies can have the last word. Desmond Tutu.

Het moreel universum is de rode draad doorheen de website.
Er wordt nagedacht aan de hand van elementen die een mens beroeren, raken en aanspreken.

The last living prosecutor of the Nuremberg Trials passes the torch to this generation. TEDxTeen opening music by Madijuwon. Benjamin B. Ferencz was born in Transylvania in 1920 and moved to America when he was ten months old. After he graduated from Harvard Law School in 1943, he enlisted in the army. Under General Patton, Ferencz fought in every major battle of the war. He was later transferred to a newly created War Crimes Branch to gather evidence of Nazi brutality. When the war was over, Ferencz returned to New York and was subsequently recruited for the Nuremberg war crimes trials. Ferencz was named Chief Prosecutor for the United States in the Nuremberg “Einsatzgruppen Case.” Twenty-two defendants were charged with murdering over a million people. Ferencz was 27-years-old and it was his first case. He then played a key role in negotiating and implementing German agreements to compensate victims of Nazi persecution. Since then, Ferencz has devoted his life to studying and writing about world peace and replacing the “rule of force with the rule of law.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
