To end war is very simply: first and foremost, you must stop killing people. To start peace is a little bit more tricky...

Said the Fabian Socialist.

Why wasn't "The New World Order" listed as one of his books?

Search archive.org for "Wells New World Order" to download a copy.

The best way to control the opposition is to finance it. Birds of prey have two wings; the left wing & right wing.

1. By not elected Debt Money Monopoly political agents promoted by the Debt Money Monopoly financed major media.

2. By minimizing interaction with Debt Money Monopoly sanctioned mega corporations.

3. By shopping local and paying with cash, denying the credit card "vig" to the Debt Money Monopoly credit card corporate fronts.

4. By refusing to do business with their criminal TBTF&Jail drug money laundering banks.

Think Every country has to develop a strong progressive movement to abolish all military jobs, corrupt, greedy people in the government, and eliminate all weapons - the only way to stop wars.

If we don't end war, war will end us.

H.G. Wells (1866-1946)

Applause There have been truly courageous people of spiritual magnanimity to whom the world has not listened, but cringed under the fear that the bully military commanders and corrupt governments have instilled in them.
Albert Einstein in Einstein on Peace has warned the world against the bully power of the military and those who hire them to do their dirty job - wars.

War is just a legalized name for world crime legalized by the "legislators" who only care about their self-interests, territories and material assets that give them false power that common people fear to oppose. Commanders and soldiers have been just mercenaries of corrupt, greedy governments throughout the history of the world.

"If we don't end war, war will end us." Yes, but the stupid people that keep grabbing power in all country's seem to really love & enjoy killing all living things...

War is unnecessary. We should use diplomacy more often.

The #1 motivator for war, and the cause of death for more people than any other reason: RELIGION!

If you don't believe it, then you don't know world history. Here's an exercise: Click tomorrow's (Nov.25) TFD "This Day in History," and start clicking links. Let yourself go deep into the proverbial "rabbit hole." Even after hours, you won't exhaust the accounts of caliphates, conquests, crusades, hanging, burning, inquisitions, exile, ad infinitum et ad nauseum.

It's ancient superstition. Snap out of it you meat puppets. Educate yourselves. There is no magical man in the sky watching you.

Apparently, you are on a crusade of your own, to stamp out religion.

Really, there is no need to be so damned belligerent about it.

"We" are not likely to end war, but artificial intelligence, and by-products of ours, may end us.
