“War is Peace, Knowledge is Ignorance, Freedom is Slavery”. “1984”
We started a “War on Poverty” in 1965; there are Millions more in poverty today than back then.
We started the “War on Drugs” in the 1970’s. Hundreds of thousands have been killed or jailed, and there are more drugs in the US than ever before.
We started a “War on Terrorism” in 2002″ and terrorists now control more nations than ever before.
In 2009 we started a war on the “Greedy rich”, those corporations, company’s and the greedy bankers at its center of this new religion of greed. Looking for a government to tax the greed out of them completely. Yet we now have an even larger government, an ever increasingly greedy population of citizens, followed by an ever-increasing greedy politician in office legislating the new rules, regulations, definitions and laws to deal with the world of greed, resulting in its magnification within society. At the same time protecting the endangered species, the greedy political official looking for reelection.
We started a political war on “Women” in 2012. A politically created division within groups of people and their genders, all of which are now competing for preferential treatment by governmental policies. Showered with money and attention, bought and paid for by a newly protected group, a societal superior, over every other voter group. I suppose we could just call it a forced evolution, a survival of the fittest, that has all ready prostituted itself to government which controls the nature of evolution in the first place. Today the war on women, tomorrow the war on the planet through the use of global warming??
In 2012 we also started the war on “Offences”;
Obama’s quote…..”there is no future for those who choose to slander the prophet of Islam.” President Obama said in a speech to the UN.
Because Islam and other religious and non religious groups are easily offended. We must use governmental controls of what is and what isn’t offensive, ( political correct terms that is). Of course while outlawing offences of the smallest kind we tend to offend the people or groups of every kind, who would also express an opinion of their own. Because these opinions are still offensive to others. In stead of peacefully agreeing to disagree, they only express disagreement. saying Marry Christmas shouldn’t be so disagreeable, but to an overly sensitive person who also is an atheist? This is too much! To the terrorist who wishes to wipe out the infidel by blowing them up along with himself in order to gain a place in heaven surrounded by virgins. Wether it is agreeable, or disagreeable, or offensive to either side, even to those who must die or to those who must stop the madness, we shouldn’t be slandering the islamic prophet / religion? Wouldn’t this be showing preferential treatment for one religion practices over the others, no matter how misguided it seems to be, by allowing venomous reactions without outrage against such, is itself offensive? Would we not then be offending the Grim Reaper or death itself by defending life through modern medical practices or techniques? All that has been accomplished in the war on offence is an ever thinner skinned population competing for their group to be recognised in gaining approval, offensive superiority supported by the laws of the land. Of course to the anarchist this is also offensive, to have laws, net alone a government who would in force them.
When it comes to the war on offence, it is a lose / lose proposition. Offences survives on either side of the coin. Prehaps we should abandon our war on offence and go straight for the new war on WHINING! Eliminating that, could resolve things that the weak-minded can’t, who use being offended as their weapon of choice, trying to gain control over you and your actions, in limiting reactions or choices, at the very least, by whining about everything.
Early in 2013 we now have renewed the war on guns. After 20 kids got killed by some crazy gun-man. Not to make light of the tragedy of what was the sandy hook school massacre in new town CT. But banning a gun does little to nothing in changing the mind of the criminal who has chosen to do evil. Besides, why is it now proper for the president and government to wage war on the gun after 20 victims? Where were these wizards of wisdom in the Chicago wars? The casualty’s in 2012 in Chicago have surpassed the death toll of Afghanistan. When the president says. ” We must try to do something, even if it stops just one person from being killed.” Yet with a philosophy of stopping just one more needless death, should the population be limited in its freedoms, and rights? Or is this just a price to pay to be living in an uncertain world, where nothing is guaranteed? Autos kill far more people than guns, no one is banning the use of autos. Drunk drivers kill even more people than the proclaimed “One” by the president. Should we re-ban alcohol? How about the parking lots at the bar?
When we look at the statistics last year we had 11,000 gun related deaths, down from the 20,000 plus gun deaths in 1980. The ratio of volume of weapons vs. deaths by weapons is in decline, as is the case in the statistical evidence in the state of California. Gun bans don’t work! Because it only regulates the law-abiding citizen, not the lawless citizen who doesn’t follow laws. With 1.4% of gun victims last year coming from the weapons government is now trying to ban, it seems out-of-place, or is this just the beginning of what will be the slippery slope to an out-right total gun ban?
It seem in order to protect this society from needless deaths at the hands of criminals who by their nature doesn’t follow any laws, or rules of conscience within society. Would be a waste of resources if we don’t engage the true source of the problem. It would be better to have a war on the mentally ill, or at least people who are weak-minded or have a lack of morals. Maybe movie makers, or video game makers, is what we should be warring against because they should have a bigger responsibility to society. For they influence the weak-minded? After all, the movies, and TV, and video games have become the advertisements of violence that may entice weak-minded people, in acting out with violence. Advertisements do work in getting people to act, other wise companies wouldn’t spend millions of dollars each year on them. If there is a marinade of violence on the weak-minded like this, wouldn’t that also be a problem? Every mass-shooting has found that the shooter to have a fascination with these kinds of entertanments.Treating the weak-minded / mentally ill with dignity and respect in helping them is far better, then limiting the law-abiding citizen as if they are the danger to society. If we chose to bathe in a sewer, should we also expect an improvement just because we using the excuse ” we used soap!”??
Aren’t all these wars “For the good of the people, to keep them safe and secure, even from themselves”?
Truly, we are living Orwell’s nightmare.
