The Southern California Community Links Magazine’s January 1- January 15, 2010 Vol. 5 Issue 146 page 4 has a great quote from Rabbi Yanki Tauber (Jewish):
True achievement is possible only under conditions of absolute freedom. A person must be in full control of his or her life, free of any constraints and hindrances. But being “in control” breed complacency and spiritual laziness; only when challenged and oppressed, only when compelled to resist and battle “overpowering” circumstances, does the human being rise to and actualize his or her true potential.
Rabbi Yanki Tauber
A response to number 18 The Fake Enemy from American Theorist Tres Mali Scott:
