How can we defeat "us vs. them" mentality?

Should you think about your duty, or about the consequences of your actions? Or should you concentrate on becoming a good person?

The mistake you are making is judging creation by results. You don't understand that the necessity and value of the universe is found in the process by which creation is sustained
Seems an odd moment for you to interject. Am I to understand that the 'Supreme Being' found it necessary and valuable to create a universe in which there are blessed shotgun toting, whisky drinking creatures, like Quirk, Can and presumably you, who could sustain creation by having shotguns and drinking whisky?
HA!

Have you ever considered what knowledge of karma is? Do you believe its value is in knowledge of results or knowledge of a lawful process producing lawful results?

The ONE creates universal laws which make sustaining creation possible. The essential question is why creation is necessary. It will always be avoided when the emphasis is on results.
