Systems and isms do not attack anyone or start any wars. Hitler was a madman and needed to be stopped. But in waging war against the Nazis, Americans became like their enemies. We brutalized and murdered prisoners and then dropped two bombs which could have been avoided.
Dropping the first atomic bomb was sick, the Japanese were ready to surrender. And dropping a second bomb was perverse. But that these American atrocities took place, does not imply it would have been OK to allow Hitler’s genocide and murders to continue.
And recently, when Obama spent 1.5 trillion building more nuclear weapons while engaged in unprovoked attacks across the globe…. we have become the ones who need to be stopped. Unfortunately Trump is on board with dozens of wars.
The solution is not a surrender to war, but to stand up and secure the peace.
But political “reality” intervenes.
“At home, militarized police departments allow officers to kill unarmed citizens at will with zero accountability, two weeks paid vacations and get out of jail free cards. And our leaders export this aggression overseas with illegal drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike.”
It is critical that we shut down corporate wars and reinvest in jobs with justice. We can rebuild sustainable infrastructure and restore human resources by choosing peace over war. These are the tasks at hand.
