Oh, I have fought back believe me and I have left my fair share of enemies lying face down in a pool of blood too and it is nothing to be proud of. I
have survived an attempted murder too and now if I was to meet those that tried and nearly succeeded in taking my life I would shake their hand and
smile at them, buy them a beer because it is not about forgiveness, it is about getting over it and getting over yourself because it is ego that makes
you want to hold onto odium and strive for vengeance.
I admit I have lived among the savages and been one to so humbly I ask you not to assume me to be some naive hippy who wants to hug everything because
it is the filthy past that has brought me to my senses and to where I am now in my life and I say what I say not because I am being arrogant but
because I want to make a difference in some way by speaking out.
For me living a very violent early life it is a disgrace to me that cost me a happy time and I have learned to let go and consign the filth to the
past. The negative things you do to others will definitely haunt you even if at first you laugh and make sick jokes about it. If you say never then
either your psychology is damaged or you are lying, or both.
That I did not think before I acted when I was a young man is something I carried around with me for a very long time but I guess it is true that
youth is wasted on the young because if I knew then what I know now then I would be much more enlightened and not so disengaged from society in the
now and expectant of only regressive thoughts and acts from my male peers today.
Make an enemy your friend or at least try and I promise you something amazingly progressive will happen. Instead of butchering these people and
pointing weapons at them or laughing at their demise on YouTube we as a supposedly progressive and enlightened society need to engage them and talk to
them about bringing them back into the global community but the way we engage them is certainly not to be done in the way it was tried in the early
90’s because that was not talking that was all about shows of force through mistrust and expecting them to jump to our tune under stupidly
complicated rules of engagement, pandering to warlords and petty demands.
Engagement in the process of rebuilding a shattered society without overreaching and without looking to make a buck off the backs of the
disenfranchised is the way to go and it will be hard and long so do it via tried and tested charities. There are many really decent and skilled people
out there who would be willing to go in there and break their backs trying to make a difference but it seems easier to just kick a country into the
bin and open fire with weapons first long before we open our mouths to talk.
Respect beyond borders and taking religion and culture out of the equation is to go a long way forward in fixing that which is broken and to clean up
a mess of mass murder and shattered infrastructure that echoes from the past to the present and will continue to speak to the future just as long as
we continue to butcher “the foe.”
To stand a chance there has to be respectful engagement and it will be dangerous no doubt, but to try with effort and real intent is never to fail and
to try and die in such a venture beats fighting and dying so that a corrupt government might remain in power as has happened in Afghanistan for
So respectfully in that context I ask who is the real bully here, the pirate forced to desperate acts or the Marine on the warship killing and
laughing because he so loves to follow orders?
