Every War Is a Civil War…

A civil war is a war between peoples of the same place.

All of humanity is from the same place; Planet Earth.

That means we are killing OURSELVES. It’s just that simple.

That shouldn’t be right to any sensible, conscious, human being.

The problem is that things like religion and political ideology mess up the simplicity of the facts…and the slaughter continues.

WHY? Why do we kill ourselves? Ideology? Religion?

To kill another human being, regardless of the religion or ideology, is…there just has to be something very wrong with that, no? Thinking about it, I know and I can’t believe how many people on our planet today can easily, recklessly, justify killing with scarcely a thought–another one.of.you.and.me.

Don’t confuse the facts with ideology, religion or politics. At root, we all know down deep that killing others is just.plain.wrong.

The Root of Terrorism

Christmas days attempted bombing of the Delta Airlines flight brought the beast of terrorism and terrorist activity back into the international spotlight, spreading fear and pandemonium around the world. I doubt that anyone has been comfortable flying since.

I think that the root cause of terrorism is Belief. Terrorists believe in their philosophy or ideology so strongly that they will do almost anything to carry it out, to see the objective of their beliefs fulfilled.

My essay, “On Belief” describes this further. I invite you to read it.
