War in our minds but not in our souls

The last time humanity exhausted itself with war, was 1945. In Europe, the predominant feeling was "never again", much like the prevailing mood only 27 years earlier in 1918 (numerologists may point to the predominance of the number "9" in these pivotal numbers but that is way beyond our current understanding - requires much deeper exploration). 

Today, there seems to be a rising appetite for war fuelled by hate and fear, mainly among those who have no first-hand experience of war and particularly those who have no expectation of being a physical protagonist or victim - how naive is that?

The obvious trigger points for global conflagration are North Korea and Iran, both of which are regarded, in the minds of the belligerent and the ignorant, as "threats to world peace". These two countries, who've never invaded another country, nor initiated a war on others, stand accused by those who've robbed, murdered and pillaged their way around the globe, fighting proxy wars in their global power games for centuries. Since the end of WW2, the banksters have provoked wars and instability with increasing vigour. The invasion of Palestine in 1948 to establish the illegal, rogue state of Israel, promised to the Rothschilds in 1917 by Lord Balfour, was the catalyst to destabilise the Middle East and beyond by militarising and demonising Islam. The Balfour Declaration was Rothschilds' reward for bringing the US into WW1.

The people of Europe and America have tacitly supported this growing madness, even after saying "never again" in 1945. In 1950-53, Korea was plunged into genocidal chaos (3 million dead - a statistic but each life is as valuable as our own). Since Korea, proxy wars have been continuous but now the contagion is coming home to Europe and America. The latter is geographically isolated which makes invasion a remote possibility but there are many ways to wage war and the seeds are already planted.

Europe straddles the European Heartland which is of global strategic importance and the One Belt, One Road strategy of the China/Russia axis is a threat to Anglo-American power. The Rothschilds need two sides to manipulate and profit from in war and Europe is the battleground.

The orchestrated Maidan debacle sparked civil war in Ukraine in 2014 but still most people in Europe couldn't read the signs, as the country descended into lawlessness and civil war. The premeditated regime change agenda was obvious to anyone taking notice but the puppet politicians and media PSYOPS successfully blinded most to the US $5Bn of funding for regime change and U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland's role in the coup d'etat.

Today, the Ukraine stands as a potential trigger for WW3.

Wider Europe is already descending into chaos through induced mass migration, triggered in August 2015 by the "boy on the beach", to destabilise nation states. Yet still we remain blind to the trajectory and where it is taking us - WW3; we remain distracted by Brexit hysteria and the usual trivial fare of sport and celebrity (bread and circuses).

Economics are always a factor in war: economic collapse often precedes war or war is used as a means to obscure the parlous state of the economy - there's money to be made from death and destruction which is why all wars are banksters' wars.

But, as humans, we should call "timeout" to reflect. What are we doing?

Ghostly Voices Dancing in the Rain by Edward Curtin
On I walked, listening and watching. The rain fell harder, so hard it was difficult to see and all other sounds were completely obliterated. Bubbling up from somewhere came the rhythm of Jacques Prévert’s poem, “Barbara”:

 

Remember Barbara
It rained all day on Brest that day
And you walked smiling
Flushed enraptured streaming wet
In the rain

That good and happy rain
On your happy face
On that happy town

Oh Barbara
What shitstupidity the war
Now what’s become of you
Under this iron rain
Of fire and steel and blood
And he who held you in his arms
Amorously
Is he dead or gone or still so much alive
Oh Barbara
It’s rained all day on Brest today

Of which there’s nothing left

 

There is a reason for our cumulative misfortune and it is our ignorance and gullibility. We fear and distrust the "other" because we've been trained to compete and fight each other. What is to be done?

If we engage with the "other", we find they want what we want: love, freedom and happiness - once we engage with the "other" at a fundamental human level, we can co-create a shared understanding which will render the puppeteers and their elevated cattle impotent. Talk to people. family, friends, strangers, everyone.

Because...war is in our minds but not our souls.

Quoting James Walter:
There will be no nuclear world war - that would end the profits and the Lebensraum of our rulers. There will be endless proxy/regional wars - they produce endless profits.


Hi Jimmy

I agree but "possession of WMDs" is a primary pretext for war and the big fear dragon is WMDs in the hands of "terrorists".

Furthermore, a "proxy war" is only comfortable if it's not on your doorstep or in your house.

War is coming to both Europe and America. Not in the WW1 sense of two lines of opposing armies on the battlefield but manipulated humans slugging it out on their home turf (in the case of the US) and Balkanisation of European nations with strange alliances and bedfellows.

The parallels with run up to WW1 are ominous

“In a way, the world−view of the Party imposed itself most successfully on people incapable of understanding it. They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening. By lack of understanding they remained sane. They simply swallowed everything, and what they swallowed did them no harm, because it left no residue behind, just as a grain of corn will pass undigested through the body of a bird.”

“The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
― George Orwell, 1984

Follow the money. There will be no nuclear world war - that would end the profits and the Lebensraum of our rulers. There will be endless proxy/regional wars - they produce endless profits. "Fear is he mind killer", the controller. When afraid, the blood actually leaves the thinking part of the brain and goes to the "Fight, flight and follow authority part - the brain stem - the rat brain.

“War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.”

"The people will believe what the media tells them they believe."

“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”

“The masses never revolt of their own accord, and they never revolt merely because they are oppressed. Indeed, so long as they are not permitted to have standards of comparison, they never even become aware that they are oppressed.”

“So long as they (the Proles) continued to work and breed, their other activities were without importance. Left to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of ancestral pattern...Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult.” ― George Orwell, 1984
