It is unacceptable that in the twenty first century we are still settling international disputes by the barbaric method of war. Modern warfare does not consist of two armies facing each other over some strange and foreign plain. It is a devastating and horrendous attack on the civilian population and the country’s infra structure to further the interests of imperialism. It is a ferocious and sustained attack by weapons of unimaginable destructive power unleashed on cities, towns and villages from many miles away. There is no real defence against such weapons, if the fire ball and blast don’t kill you the depleted uranium will in time and leave a legacy of cancer and deformed births for generations to come. This surely can’t be the answer to any problem, but it is, the state’s answer.
If man is as he claims, the pinnacle of evolution, the most intelligent being on the planet, then it must be within his ability to come up with a solution to international disputes that does not create such savage, merciless slaughter and destruction. However as long as we maintain the state system and its apparatus, it will always remain the most likely answer. In all modern war fare, the vast amount of weaponry is not of the anti personnel type designed to kill the opposing troops, but is designed to destroy a country’s infrastructure, that means civilians will be the victims. The use of such weapons must be considered a crime against humanity and unacceptable in this, the 21st century..
If we hope to end this nightmare of savagery then it is going to be up to the ordinary people of this world to organise and make a stand to end this primeval form of activity, we can’t wait for the state to relinquish its power, it never has willingly and it won’t voluntarily dissolve itself.. It is always the ordinary people that are called upon to do the killing, it is always the ordinary people that suffer most in the savagery, suffering and deprivation that are the results of war, while the corporate world reap the benefits. If we hope for a better world for our children and grandchildren then we have to bring an end to this system of profit driven greed that feeds imperialism, a system that is backed up by state power for the benefit of the few, those parasitical parasites, the shareholders and their guardians. We need a world of federated communities each seeing to the needs of its citizens based on sustainability, a system of free association, voluntary co-operation and mutual aid, a system freed from the profit motive and the greed driven power mongers.
THE PINNACLE OF EVOLUTION.
There’s a crazy ape, who
by means of incredible intransigence
has mastered the art of carnage;
through dogged determination
in a ruthless rampage
raised the body-count beyond belief.
This crazy ape
creates the human chronicles
as a cruel callous calendar,
transforms our indulgent earth
into a primitive barbaric abattoir.
He struts across the land
with bumptious pride;
he’s destructive, he’s devious,
His claim to fame,
history immortalised in rivers of blood.
this crazy ape called man,
he’s the GODS’ sublime solution,
the pinnacle of evolution.
