Bono: Justice Is A Tougher Stand Than Charity

As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both. – Bono

 

My heroes are the ones who survived doing it wrong, who made mistakes, but recovered from them. –Bono

It’s an amazing thing to think that ours is the first generation in history that really can end extreme poverty, the kind that means a child dies for lack of food in its belly. That should be seen as the most incredible, historic opportunity but instead it’s become a millstone around our necks. We let our own pathetic excuses about how it’s “difficult” justify our own inaction. Be honest. We have the science, the technology, and the wealth. What we don’t have is the will, and that’s not a reason that history will accept. – Bono

But we’ve got to follow through on our ideals or we betray something at the heart of who we are. Outside these gates, and even within them, the culture of idealism is under siege, beset by materialism and narcissism and all the other isms” of indifference. – Bono
