enemy sighted in Toulouse
Last night I consorted with one of my enemy’s people. Or to be more precise, last night I met someone that my company tells me is my enemy. And he met with lots of people who his company tells him are his enemies.

But myself and my apparent enemy were invited to meet each other by a professional organisation which we are both associated with. This organisation obviously thinks that we should regard each other as colleagues, rather than as enemies.

So which organisation do I believe? Do I treat this person in front of me with hostility, or with humanity?

What happens if I don’t belong to my professional organisation and I only hear my company’s message?

Will there then be anything to stop me from having an enemy?
