Human’s earliest historical records and forward provide ample evidence of conflicted, confused, strife and struggle filled eras and events resulting from a reasoning, self-aware species bringing death, destruction, disease, misery and mayhem upon themselves unlike any other living creature on earth. A sad commentary is made on our humanity when animals get along better than people.
Cemetery 117 in the Nile region of Egypt held up to fifty-nine complete skeletal remains and even more partials many of which have arrowheads embedded in their bodies indicating they were casualties of a battle nearly 7000 thousand years ago. Scientists speculate the aggression and violence resulted from diminished resources and increasing land aridity. Because of man’s reasoning capacity the reasons for war are as varied as man, which is not to say that man killing man is ever reasonable or justifiable. Among the remains at Cemetery 117 were found bodies of women, infants and children which were more than likely victims of aggression, not aggressors themselves.
The War Scholar.com offers a list of fifty one centuries of major military events around the world dating from 2924 BC to 2008 AD. Truly only the human creature is capable of creating such hell on earth; yet ironically doing so for the sake of peace.
Wikipedia – Ongoing wars lists current wars and conflicts across the globe “for the sole purpose of identifying present-day conflicts and the death toll associated with each conflict” thus ensuring that the hell continues its infamous path; but what about Peace?
A person might reason that given man’s great accomplishments, progress and modernization in every aspect of living we would have grown more tolerant, compassionate, kind and equal in our views and actions toward each other, but nothing could be further from reality. Astoundingly, it seems the more technologically advanced mankind becomes the more the kind is removed out of man.
Humans “must utilize their free will and unique ability to reason in order to stop inventing things that protect individuality; and instead use this intelligence and dominion over the natural world to support it. Protecting one’s own life and individuality without regard for the protection of others, creates fear, war and destruction, while supporting life and guaranteeing equality in the pursuit of individuality lays a foundation of peace that leads to lasting happiness. This foundation must come from a worldwide effort that transcends nationality, race, religion, pride and personal ego, in order to address the human problem of inequality, hopelessness and unhappiness”. Christopher. 666 The Mark of America– Seat Of The Beast. Worldwide United Publishing, 2006: 48-49.
Edmund Burke is quoted as stating “ There is but one law for all, namely, that law which governs all law, the law of our creator, the law of humanity, justice, Equity—the law of nature and of nations. Charles de Montesquieu: “In the state of nature…all men are born equal.” John F. Kennedy: “Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind.”
Anonymous: ”There is only one truth that can unite us as children of our common God and that truth is expressed with care and completeness in the accepted scriptures; It is written:
“If you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, you would love your neighbor as yourself, and you do well” (James 2:8)
That one single utterance encompassed all that was ever taught by him,
“Whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them.” (Matthew 7:12). ”
An email received today shows how kind is still far from the minds of those with the power to make changes, it says; “Weiss Research is turning 40 this year!
And personally, I consider surging oil prices to be a heck of a gift for all of us investors.”
Perpetuating hell comes so easily because… they know not what they do. What is it we are doing and not doing to one another? Who pays for the gift mentioned above? It is the blood of dead men, those whose lives are spent in the service of their vanity, which continues to perpetuate inequality among us and prevents us from achieving the Peace we all know deep down inside is what we really want and can obtain.
March 20, 2010 marked the seven-year anniversary of the Iraq War ostensibly started to seize weapons of mass destruction and free the Iraqi people from the dictatorship regime in power, no WMD’s were ever reportedly found, the dictator hung for crimes against humanity and the war continues unabated.
Billions and billions of pixel money dollars, not gold or silver or money made of paper- there simply isn’t enough to go around for the number of decimals in use, but pixel money – trillions of “dollars” represented as pixels on screens in accounting software programs, has been used to fund this and countless other wars; and what of Peace?
In an interview, President Bush defended the administration’s position on war stating that he was “doing what was best for America.” which by direct contrast means it’s not best for those who are not Americans. About the same time as the seven-year anniversary mentioned above, President Obama in the eyes of the press” got back on the war wagon.”
Considering the death and misery wars create, “what is best for America” doesn’t seem reason enough to continue in the business of perpetuating hell. It seems moronic to think that wagons filled with war toys, bombs and bullets, will ever bring peace.
If the root of war is Americas (mankind in general) unquenchable thirst for financial independence, material substance and economical superiority and people getting “gifts” at the unknown expense of others, instead of nations being forced to bow down to the pressure of American interests by being sanctioned, threatened or subdued, why not use Peace as a way to satiate that thirst? We continue to see that any nation that makes an attempt of independence and sovereignty by severing its economical ties with the United States will be invaded, conquered, and occupied. Oil-rich countries that refuse to bow down to the pressure of American interests, are threatened and subdued. If a country has no economical relevance in sustaining the American lifestyle, it is left alone until it does, so it’s just a matter of time before this drought will affect you, if it hasn’t already.
Today… President Obama stated during a speech in Michigan that the United States “will continue to do everything we can to support the orderly and genuine transition to democracy in Egypt.” who’s next?
Rather than investing in the business of perpetuating war, which is surely a living hell, why not try the other side, the business of perpetuating peace? The Worldwide United Foundation has a better way, a plan which can be used to satisfy mankind’s seemingly unquenchable thirst, all while still using Capitalism to accomplish Peace without hurting anyone.
