I don’t think I have much to add since I agree with about 90% of the other posters here.
It’s governments and wealthy interests (corporations, the Elite, etc) that wage war, not the other 99.5% of us. It’s the overpowering forces of
greed, the lust for power, dominance and control. It’s the rich and powerful, along with their political puppets, that play the war game. They move
the chess pieces around, and then send us obedient underlings out to do the dirty work. They brainwash you into believing in some fabricated cause,
hand you a rifle and then send you to hell with it. “Good luck, Son. Uncle Sam’s got your back...”
Who’s the bad guy and who’s the good guy isn’t quite clear. It doesn’t matter which side of the fence you’re on - all you need to know is
the bad guy’s on the other. What are otherwise really good people end up slaughtering each other for some reason neither one really knows for sure.
We just do what we’re told.
If the time ever comes when we end up annihilating our own kind it will be the rich and powerful, and the political puppets they put into office, that
will be to blame. It will be their greed and lust for power that does us in.
The late comedian, George Carlin, made some insightful statements having to do with TPTB. Here’s a couple of them...
“They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid
for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so
they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year
lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you
what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people
capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.”
Here’s another one....
“They’ll get it all from you sooner or later 'cause they own this f**kin' place. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in
the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day
long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is
rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good, honest, hard-working people: white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color
shirt you have on.”
George was a pretty cool dude. I liked him...
