We NEED

An Enemy
...........................................................................................................................................................

  • We seem to NEED an enemy. We hop from one enemy to another -- Soviet Union to Iraq to Al Qaeda to Russia to Iran and now to China (with a certain minority always having Israel as their enemy).

Really?

Maybe not. Maybe WE (the people) don't need an enemy. Maybe someone else does.

There needs to be a war going on somewhere. It's a fact of life. Without a conflict of decent sized, too many international defense contractors will find themselves out of business. So if no natural war is looming, we can count on the DCs to get together to invent one.

Endless Wars, especially those which are fought out of judgement mistakes that were made many years ago, & those where we are getting little financial or military help from the rich countries that so greatly benefit from what we are doing, will eventually come to a glorious end!

Maybe not. The deep state wouldn't like that.

Sort:  

The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.
