Tangential paths


“I understand what you’re saying. But if I change direction, how do I explain it to all my followers? How do I go back on my words and say it was all wrong?”

“There is no right or wrong. Are you convinced you need a new direction?”

Yes. The bigotry I drilled into people gave me power, but caused mayhem in the world. Today, when I’m out of power, I see the impact of my deeds and would like to atone for that.

“Have the courage to tell people that whatever you said may have been right in a particular set of circumstances, for a certain set of people. But the world has changed, and now we need to adopt a new course. Crucial to finding the way is this: there is no beginning or end, just a series of tangential paths.”

“Bless me!”
