When you think about it

img_4092Why are people fighting, why Is there war?
Why do people judge and laugh at others instead of help them ?
Why is there people starving and dying of hunger yet people go out and spend £50 on a meal and only eat half?
Why do we act so shamefully ??? WHY!
We all need to turn to ourselves and start working on the inside. You have to start with the inside and work your way out. Don’t let war and religion make you turn to hate!!! I’ve never met anyone that wants a war, so why are we at war with ourselves?
Sad when I think about it !

  1. “Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.”

    (i shouldnt have to say it, but this does not mean im a nazi sympathizer. its a quote of historical importance and modern relevance.)

    i consider this quote a condemnation of war as a racket. ive got family and friends that are/were in the armed forces, and i think its good that we have troops, but i think theyre too often sent around the world for dubious reasons. if i were (really) in charge, i wouldnt disband our army– id make sure vets and troops were better taken care of– but there would be less of the global screwing around you read about in the news.


      • im very opinionated, but my opinions on specific things are not easy to predict. i am however, unquestionably a humanist– not only a humanist, though a humanist first and foremost. i didnt say “secular” although until we find a way to invade the afterlife (little joke there– plus im agnostic) the secular is mostly what we have to work with in terms of here-and-now. i consider myself a reasonably spiritual person, at least in theory.
