Hey, when are you going to write about 2 impending wars based on the spread of nuclear weapons? Prez sez Iran will have one in a year. How does he know that and what’s to be done about it? Also, does life go on as usual once the first war to prevent the cessation of all human life begins?
I’m probably not writing about it because I prefer not to think about it 😉 I have to admit that the whole North Korea nuke thing makes me slightly nervous, since we’re over here hanging out on the West Coast and all that. I seriously hope that the new Kim Jung is just blowing hot air about it.
Yeah, hmn, there’s seems, as there has always been, a small cadre of assholes who “lead” the rest of us to our slaughter. I don’t get the general sense that most folks on this planet want much more than to be a bit happy, safe, prosperous and to see that continue into the future. Why then do we end up with such meglomaniacs leading us into hell every generation or so? Kim Jung? Doesn’t anyone over there think they’d be better served buy just blowing a hole in his head and starting the reset button? What’s to gain w/ a nuclear war? The entire planet burns, all of us, everything stops and noone w/ out a private army survives. That we could even consider this as being viable is shocking, disgusting, insane. Ruthless, complete planetary disarmament is they only way to survive, but then I’m just an idiot in Portland, Oregon who likes to make art. What do I know? Only that’s there’s billions of others like me now and throughout history who never had a whit of interest dying for someone else’s ambitions. Yep.
Yeah, I really have to wonder about the concept that most people just want to live their life in peace and be left alone. There have not only been plenty of crazy and destructive political leaders–there have also been large and crazy mobs supporting them. I’m not sure where this comes from. Perhaps we are genetically programmed to worship something or someone–sometimes it’s a Pope, sometimes a Kim Jung? And it becomes a truly dangerous situation when the crowd believes that the worshipped object or person is worth dying or killing for–or destroying the world….
