    When neither us Mortals nor the Kami (Gods) and Megami (Goddesses) have Omniscience – Total Knowledge – or Omnipotence – Total Action – then it is time to understand that the Road to Perdition is paved with ‘Peace’ and other ‘Perfection’ and ‘Good’ Intentions. In the name of our separate Constitutional Republican Mortal State and Liberal Democratic Mortal Society – and Nonviolence, avoiding aggression, and Nonsinning, avoiding harm to others – please select a Truce that defends against the Lust for Power in the Mortal State and the Mortal Society… and that can be passed from Generation to Generation… for the sake of the Children… everywhere. Blessings of the Buddha, the Tao, the Kami, and the Megami to all Truce Makers and their Books from this humble little Japanese American Shinto Shamaness. Cheers!
