A country at war abroad lives in fear at home. To Destroy a foreign culture requires the destruction of the home culture first. (Summarizing Chris Hedges ~War Reporter)
News reporters are disgusted at an act of animal cruelty yet are mute on the 6,702 civilians that were killed on the first night of shock and awe in Iraq in 2003.
What civilized culture believes that killing civilians will foster democracy, peace or justice? Only Thantos, the Lord of Death revels the killers.
War is a racket and a breeding ground for atrocities such as mass murder, torture and assassination.
War is financed by debt. Nothing is more profitable to creditors than war.
We will know that we are becoming civilized when we reject war and repay our debts, when we reject self-destruction and embrace compassion or at least tolerance. Perhaps then we will reap the full benefits of liberty.
Free includes debt-free!
