Loving kindness work best with animals. But for the humans, most of the times, it is not effective. Please do your own research.

The Conqueror


The bandits blew up the statues of liberty,
Cheng Ho and Raffles
One after another they crumbled
As if this earth must be totally flat.
Defending armies came and were always wiped off
The invincible warrior triumphed
He believed he was the chosen one
The whole world was crumbling
From day one to day four
On the fifth day this warrior came to Singapore,
The pearl of the orient
It was a Friday
He was face to face with the President.
Mr. President put forward his right hand and said:
I’m sorry if I had offended you in the past
Please sit down and have a cup of coffee.
I’ll declare within few minutes that you’re
The new President of this lovely nation.
The invincible warrior shrank smaller and smaller
Until he was no bigger than a spider
With a loud cry of intensive pain
He vanished into the thin air.
Another good nation was saved
Not by nuclear weapons
But by sympathy and love.
(END)

In Asia, there is a belief that the more a person hates the devil, the stronger that devil grows. But if a person can transmit loving kindness to that devil, this devil becomes incapable of hurting others.

The fear of black magic and spirits do not just confined to developing countries. In January 2014, a man in New York, beat to death, his wife Ms Estrella Castaneda, and her daughter Ms Lina Castaneda. That man told the police the ladies were witches who used voodoo to cast spells on him.
In London, during the past ten years, police had also investigated 81 cases of ritual abuses, of children believed to be possessed by demons.
