About our nation’s violence…

Reasonable people can disagree both strongly and with facts about our political laws, of course; or even the proper role of political government in human societies.

But even among my list of friends, (Facebook and otherwise) there is a disturbingly broad, and in practice, dangerous range of perceptions and opinions regarding the appropriate use of deadly violence; both abroad, and domestically.

GunThe range is roughly from Peace and Love toward All No Matter What, to Nuke ‘Em All ‘cause whatever.

Now I don’t intend to waste time and effort discussing relative merits in the arguments, as the divisions are so hard and deep that people hear only what they want anyway.

I just wish more of us would consider a few things when voting, speaking and otherwise YOU!enacting or supporting political violence:

1. Have the promises you believe ever been kept? Have the predictions proven true? …Ever? When?

2. Have you looked at the forces and money behind the news stories?

3. Are you so sure your opinion isn’t what some very wealthy, powerful – even rogue clandestine agents, put into your head?

If more people actually thought long and hard about the above three things, I’m convinced that there’d be substantial changes in our global and domestic war machines, and military-industrial complex.

In any case, I’m also convinced that what we’re doing right now is madness.
And we had been warned many times by many people.
