Can you Really Love Your Enemies?
I refer to an old Irish saying. "Forgive those that harm you, but remember the bastards name." Active Forgiveness with active resistance. Its the most reality based balance of kindness and survival instinct.

What's your opinion on Unconditional Basic Income? (This is not Communism)
If you kill the need for competition, you kill the gravity holding society to the ground... It is a necessary primal dictate- the means for all social contracts and the method by which folks either succeed or fail. There will always be takers and losers- even if all were "equal" there would still be those that rise to the top and those that scam the complacent, apathetic masses.

Is Knowledge a Curse?
Relativists are just lazy armchair philosophers. there is an empirical truth in everything, whether the human mind has discovered it yet or not. The process of understanding can get pretty complicated, hence folks affinity to be relativistic- But I say that is BS- there is a truth and we're all out to seek it. For instance, the airplane example you used is not the most simple answer as it does not take into account propulsion or aerodynamics. Its a base assumption- and a base assumption is not "simple", its ill-informed.
