In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
Remembrance Day suggests to me that society as a whole is insane. People wear poppies and pay lip service to previously implanted memes like "fighting for freedom" and "honour"
Where is the honour in invading other peoples home lands, terrorizing them in multiple horrific manners while reassuring the brainwashed back home that this is being done to bring freedom and democracy to those being attacked, maimed, raped, pillaged and killed?
The acceptance of this obviously discordant group think speaks to how very well perception management, mind control or brainwashing works. Not just on individuals but on entire societies.
The continuing acceptance of this discordant group think, reinforced year after year in a ritualistic fashion, is what keeps the masses not thinking, not questioning, just shuffling blank faced along.
Stop shuffling along.
This is the truth, wars are initiated by bankers. They create the economic conditions that foster and foment the human desire and capacity for war, By their manipulation of the economic and political climate they can manipulate the emotional climate and by their control of the media, they can control the public's perception of events. Thusly they create canon fodder out of the youth of the country.
Our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers often did not quite get it. Bless their hearts and honor their memories but let's do it for the right reasons. Our greatest remembrances are best served by telling the truth.
