Why is this the case? Because republicans believe in war. War = Money. The goal therefore is money, not peace....
Then else would they place the needs of these soldiers as a high priority? Helping these beautiful souls would take away from their profit.
Yes, that is the truth, sadly. Let this be a wake up call to humanity.... Be aware of what you're voting for... ~Jean S., Florida USA
Nothing's changed since the first war. It's always been about the money. What does that tell us, in general? Moreover, what does that tell us about choosing to participate? Today, we're more able to see that our sentimentality has been hijacked to believe the hype, propaganda, etc. about protecting the American way of life and peace and all that. Eventually, we'll look back and say, "Damn, we actually believed that bullshit even when the words within the statements were obviously contradictory," e.g. go to war to have peace, fight for peace, etc. My father always said, "When emotion is present, logical thinking is absent." Hello, true statement. Thank you.
Today, we're beginning to see that justifications for war and violence are insane. Some might say, "Yeah, but sometimes you have to fight to keep the threats at bay." We're beginning to realize that the idea of keeping the threats at bay is the same as saying the peace is fake and temporary. We're beginning to get that what goes around eventually comes around one way or another. We're beginning to realize that this is an unavoidable metaphysical law of the Universe.
Would it make sense to operate consistently with this little Universal Law that we've discovered is unavoidable?
The opportunity is to ask ourselves, "What is true peace?" and "How do we attain it?" We've heard the answer a million times and we declare it, share it, proclaim it, and make memes about it and all that stuff... "Be the change you want to see in the world."
Eventually, the following parlance will be the common sense of the people, basic as chocolate and vanilla... "It starts with me, and 'all the me's of us', in my chair, and in all the 'my chairs'."
We are experiencing some cognitive dissonance; however, today we're choosing to "be" what we want in the world more often. Until we get that it's the only way, we'll still participate in the insanity. That's true insanity, not figurative... Until we get that, we will be operating insanely, like dummies, true stupids, unconsciously... not that there's anything wrong with that. Just thinking aloud.
