|If Americans had half as much empathy for the MILLIONS
of lives we have either ended or ruined in the Middle East as we do for
the victims of 9/11 or of the Boston Marathon explosions, maybe, just maybe,
our government would reconsider its continual insane massacre of children
Can there be a more despicable craven act of wickedness than to bomb children, while the Bushes, Cheneys, and Obamas, in the safety of the White House, decry the cowardice of those who perpetrated 9/11? The horrors of 9/11, however, pale in comparison to the living hells we have perpetrated abroad all in the name of us, the American people, and our fascistic form of democracy.
There is, however, a much more serious and grievous abomination than slaughtering children it is the torture of a single child. To our everlasting shame, dark elements of the US government also do that by the hundreds, perhaps thousands, in over a hundred military bases across our beleaguered world.
How can a decent people tolerate a government that is as criminally insane as ours? Incrementally little by little we have justified crime after crime, until our nation and its people have become the most psychopathic mass murderers on earth.
It has been so easy for us to disconnect ourselves from the reality of our slaughters of innocent families abroad. After all, it is all "over there," in some dusty, foreign-looking place, carried out by a body of people who have been trained to believe it is honorable to kill children and innocent civilians. So, we think it is honorable, or we close out minds to the reality of the fact. We have been so conditioned. I've been so conditioned. We have all been so conditioned.
But what price will our honorable, virtuous, and noble family, friends, and neighbors pay for being Americans? Will good Americans suffer along with the bad?
America has become a cesspool of immorality, wherein the spiritually inclined individuals must disavow the crimes of our nation in order to advance to a far more divine realm, where the wanton killing of children does not occur.
By saving our children, we have a far better chance of saving ourselves.
