Forgiveness

Only those who acknowledge their guilt can be forgiven. Oppressors must acknowledge that they are oppressors. Otherwise they cannot receive forgiveness. Knowledge of guilt is the beginning of change. Forgiveness conquers injustice at its roots and leads the oppressor to become a comrade, the enemy to become a brother or sister. 

— Carlos Mesters, Die Botschaft des leidenden Volkes
