Professing Equality, Full Disclosure, Forgiveness, Reconciliation, Peace
Although not all people who asked for amnesty in South Africa got it,
the concept to forgive instead of retaliate is a shining star for all people.
To purge one's heart is cathartic and can reduce future wrongful human acts.
Truth And Conciliation Commissions with full amnesty could be on the global table.

Martial Arts Heart
For many years, I have been wrestling with the idea about whether it is acceptable for someone to teach kung fu who has not been raised in the kung fu tradition. You are absolutely right on that there are many people "no less sincere in their effort to help others" who have not endured the traditional road.
I am concluding, of late, that it
is far better to create good and positive energy in this world than not to do it. Since the purpose of kung fu is to be a humble and helpful human being and to establish peace, I do accept all those who teach from wherever they learned. I do believe they need a good 10 years of training before embarking out to teach. I used to say 20. Of course, teaching what we want to learn is always the way.
Have you ever known someone who knows how to create technique 1, 2, 3 in response to many an aggressive action but does not know how to show kindness, temper the spirit in adversity or show humility and compassion when challenged? The 3 points I mention are the true qualities of kung fu. If these are missing, there is no kung fu. Many who do "tai chi for health" possess the 3 qualities I mention.
Conclusion: qualities of humanity are first, not physical prowess. True, if we lose your life from inability to subdue our attacker, we can no longer use embody the principles. So, there is a delicate balance.
For this reason, long term training is important.
Best wishes, Teacher D

TAI CHI: HOW IT CAN POSITION US TO CHANGE THE WORLD
by Diane Gold on April, 2012
...Tai chi, chi kung and other mind/body training teach us self-cultivation. Alone, the training can make us remarkably well-tuned, aware and healthy. However, we may classify it as the “what’s in it for me” attitude if we don’t take it further. With continual training, the true goal of mind/body teachings – to inspire, cultivate and motivate change for humanity – is realized and embodied. When people dabble, they rarely learn this true purpose.
...What’s bigger about it than just doing tai chi and chi kung as a group is how it can make change. Although it introduces people to tai chi and chi kung that can heal our bodies, minds and spirits; the real treasure that most people don’t get to, because they see it as an exercise program, is that the strength and understanding we get from the program gives us the power and the incentive to do good. If we stop at fixing our arthritis, our weight or our mental stability; the world is still better off because we are better human beings from the training. But, that is small scale. If, however, we take it to the next level, which comes with “time, experience and inner balance,” we will find it our duty to take humanitarian action to cause and be change.
