Description
"We have entered a new era in America--dangerous, divided, and uncertain. In a moment when people are hungry for meaningful ways to respond to the ascent of nationalism, polarization and hate in the U.S. and around the globe, this book answers the central question of our time: How do we love in a time of anger? How do we love those who hurt us? How do we love those who are different from us, whose race or religion or politics we do not understand? How do we love people who are targeted by laws, policies, and violence? And how do we love ourselves? Valarie Kaur is a renowned Sikh activist and in this book, she argues that Revolutionary Love is the call of our times. When we practice love in the face of fear or rage, it has the ability to transform an encounter, a relationship, a community, a culture, even a country. Drawing from her personal experiences, Sikh wisdom, and the work of civil rights leaders of all kinds, Kaur has reenvisioned love as a public ethic: a commitment to loving others, opponents, and ourselves. She argues that this type of love is not a passing feeling; it is an act of will. It is an active, political, and moral response to violence, hate, and otherness. It is the choice to extend our will for the flourishing of others and ourselves. Grounded in Kaur's dramatic personal journey of practicing love in the face of political oppression, sexual assault, wrongful arrest, detention, racism, and murder, this important and timely book shows us a way to build movements that do not leave anyone behind. In an era defined by rage, Revolutionary Love is perhaps our greatest form of civil disobedience"--,Provided by publisher.
