“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.”
― Howard Zinn
How much more war is enough to appease the desires of the oligarchs ruling America? Why don’t the lives of innocents actually matter? How much more blood will stain the flag of the United States Empire? When will the American people tire of war and killing? When will those who kill for the state rightfully be called murderers instead of heroes?
The truth hurts, but truth is the most powerful weapon against tyranny. If acceptance of truth is the savior of mankind, then apathy is its destroyer. Considering the current mentality of the U.S. population, it would seem that the end is closer than it appears.
In America, war is a constant. It is a fact of everyday existence, although the citizens don’t see it firsthand because the aggressors take the war to far away places. The victims are simply seen as meaningless strangers from another culture. It feels as if war is a normal part of life, and will never end. It is not that there are wars being waged to defend America, as this country’s mainland has never been attacked. Even the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was sought and planned, and known about in advance. The wars today are in distant lands, where the killing of innocents and the raping of countries are much removed from the minds of the ignorant and apathetic populace.
