Summary:

In this the final public talk at Brockwood Park, J. Krishnamurti continues his theme to talk about all the millions who have been slaughtered throughout the world in the name of God, peace, country, some ideological concept, theories... And despite our millions of years of evolution, this is still our lot, 'we are still barbarians, we are still inwardly violent, inwardly concerned with ourselves and nobody else, concerned with our own pleasures, problems and so on. We never seem to realise that we are the world, and the world is us'. He goes on to point out that this is not a theory or Utopian ideal that you think about and come to a conclusion; it is an actuality in daily life. He says that it is obvious that when you suffer, the rest of mankind suffers. When you intend to do something for yourself and you want to fulfill that, you are becoming violent like the rest of the world. We do not feel, properly realize, in your heart and brain that we are the rest of mankind. When one actually does realize that, he says, you have a totally different way of living. You don't belong to any country, religious group or spiritual authority.
