Washington’S War Against Russia

15 September 2014 - 10:35 AM

I have been following this latest dustup between Washinton and the Russian's not only in the American MSM, but also German, British, Russian, Western Ukrainian, Eastern Ukranian, and yes of course Russian sources.  I have found that Paul Craig Roberts views seems to kind of sum up what I see happening in the situation.  You may see it different.  It really doesn't matter how we personally see it . . . . the world is as it is and you or I can't change it, but that does not mean we should not keep ourselves informed.

Why Are We Constantly At War?

13 September 2014 - 11:45 AM

Why are we constantly at war?  Well of course the most elemental and biblical answer is because of sin.  But why is it that governments like ours seem to be constantly at war aside from the biblical answer?  

The basic answer as to why governments love war is that war consolidates power.  Orwell in his book 1984 uses the backdrop of constant war as a way for the government of Big Brother to strengthen its hold on power and social control.  During a war, the organizing principle is law and order, structure and control.  To engage in constant war, government exacts total force over its citizens. 

The historian Howard Zinn discusses such an idea in his work, A People's History of the United States: "War is the health of the state," the radical writer Randolph Bourne said, in the midst of the First World War. Indeed, as the nations of Europe went to war in 1914, the governments flourished, patriotism bloomed, class struggle was stilled, and young men died in frightful numbers on the battlefields-often for a hundred yards of land, a line of trenches.

The implication is that the social discourse and action that might question governmental action and behavior is suspended during wartime, as patriotism becomes an elixir that all citizens are supposed to devour in mass quantities.  Hence, constant war is a state of being where government is in complete control at all times.

In Owell's 1984 the enemy was whatever supposed foreign power it said it was and war was unending.  Watch these four clips and tell me how the last 24 years have been any different.
