End of America.

Weather you believe this to be the 'end of times' or 'the beginning of the revolution', you can not deny that it is a tragic comedy. Ignoring stare decisis at their own peril, 5 Supreme Court Justices destroyed the integrity of the American Election system. Now all illusions are gone, and we can admit that corruption is complete.

I am immortal.
I fight wars without end, and grow stronger.
You can not live without me.
I control food production.
I control healthcare.
I control transportation and energy.
I control your government.
I control this media.
I control ...
I am the corporation and I can not die.

War is Obsolete

Not all violence is bad or wrong. Imagine a burglar breaks into your home and threatens your children, is it wrong to defend your home and family? "Non-Violence" is not the rejection of all forms of violence, it is just another political tool to resolve conflict. It doesn't mean "not doing something that is mean or hurts someone else", it simply is a way for people to aggressively attack any authority on moral grounds.

Violence is a tool, it is used to influence people via fear and intimidation or death. That is not always a bad thing, it is the way of nature. That is why humans don't go about attacking animals barehanded. But when confronted with overwhelming force, there is little alternative, we must either submit and die, or find new ways of winning the battle. Non-Violence is a strategy to win the 'heart and mind' of our opponents, and thus defeat them on a higher plane. It is a uniquely human strategy.

Children, playing at violent behavior, should be scolded and taught the social limits of their actions, but be careful not to limit their ability to defend themselves and learn the lesson that other humans can be cruel, so they be prepared to stand up for themselves when their parents aren't around. Else, they may never develop the courage and resilience necessary to survive and compete in an unjust world. War is in our DNA, it is what forced Human Evolution to accelerate, it created the intelligence we use to write these words. War culled the weak, and left us all with blood of a thousand generations of warrior kings running through our veins. But War is no longer an acceptable form of conflict resolution, not because we have suddenly evolved to become Non-Violent Pacifists, but because we have developed such powerful technology as to make war obsolete.

It is now possible for one person to destroy all life in the known universe. This is why we must find new means of resolving conflict, strategies like Non-Violence should be used in Iraq and Afghanistan, not because we can not do violence, not because we are pacifists, but because the use of war is obsolete. The lesson of the Twentieth Century is that no one wins a war, everyone looses.

Do you know me?
For eons
you have glorified me,
thrust your sons and daughters at my feet.
Your cemeteries,
your hospitals,
your streets,
are overflowing
with what I send back.
I am a vile, putrid, stinking god,
who feasts on your fears.
I give victory to the merciless, craven and greedy,
not the wise, or gifted or righteous.
I shatter your families,
widow your lovers,
orphan your babies.
I demolish your cities
and all that is beautiful
disappears in my wake.
I neither build nor create
Yet you...
you continue to worship me,
celebrate me,
parade me,
gaily throwing all of your wealth
into my all consuming pyre

I am WAR!
Damn you!
Look at me!

The Culture of U.S. Marines = Victory without ethics, or In War Always Cheat

Is it wrong to teach U.S. Marines about the culture of the people's they intend to kill?

Is it even possible for U.S. Marines to think through the consequences of their actions? And if they do start thinking, will they begin to question why they are doing what they do?
