Perspective on Memorial Day
War is stupid in colossal dimensions. It enriches a very few and impoverishes multitudes. The bombing of non-military people, blowing off limbs and heads of little children is so anti-Christ, so inhuman that the poverty of deep sorrow rings in every decent heart. The vast amounts spent on death and destruction could readily make human society pleasant for everyone.
Yet we let false leaders manipulate our minds and justify spilling the blood and guts of babies. They talk us into leaving countless mothers wailing in desperate sadness. Are we so stupid?
We could be happy. It demands rational thought and love in our hearts. What is better, the sound of music and laughter or the horrific cries of children in pain?
Is humanity mad, insane? I say no! It is a very few so clever in their evil ways that they can sway otherwise decent people. It is time to demand no more dead young soldiers, no more dead and maimed children, no more false heroes. Let us use our resources to make a simple, healthy, loving human world.
