True. War never changes. War never changes anything. Well it does change the economy and the state of human life and human rights but I don’t think it’s in the right direction, is it?
Larry Reeves once said, and I quote, “Anyone, who truly wants to go to war, has truly never been there before” which is not very true but sensible. Well for starters most of the big players in the Second World War fought during the first World War. Be it Hitler, Stalin, Churchill, Douglas MacArthur etc etc. The list goes on. But what it shows is that “WAR NEVER CHANGES ANYTHING FOR GOOD”. One war leads to another and finally the only losing side is humanity and the only winner is, well, to be honest no one.
Some wars are necessary of course. Like war against terrorism, war against discrimination, poverty, hunger and other stuff we read in moral science class. Oh wait, they don’t teach that in schools anymore. But we do have the daily prayer sessions. Maybe that’s helping, helping in it’s own mysterious way (Reference to God, did I have to explain that joke?).
What we need is the lack of need. Every war starts with need of the rich and ends up leaving millions needy. Needy for basic necessities which I’m pretty sure are available in nature to which every human being has equal access and rights (LOL not on earth you Punks)
