It just keeps coming around again, and when it comes right down to it, are any of us really surprised by that? War is a theme on this planet; it is a way of life. It repeats again and again throughout history.
When will it end?
When humanity decides it has had enough of the destruction, chooses Life, and evicts the self-serving war-makers from this Earth.
“Listen up – there’s no war that will end all wars.” ~ Haruki Murakama
“War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.”
~ George Orwell, 1984

Great quotes, Susan. Reminds of the line from Jimi Hendrix, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”

I love that quote by Jimi Hendrix too, Wynne. 🙂 People tend to see the agenda of war as something bigger than themselves, something that they have no power to change. And yet, we do have the power to change it. We are complicit because we still agree to a hierarchical system that allows for psycopaths at the top of it to wage wars. When we say no to this system, it will be the beginning of real change.
