Life…an new beginning

Filed under: General Discussion — Tags: , , — bobfunke @ 2:26

Death is so passe,  I mean really, killing each other over the most stupid things is really getting old, in fact it’s ancient.

What does one gain from the death of another? Does one gain an extra day of life, fortune, another breath until they themselves die?

Amass all the riches in the world, kill to get them, in the end, you have nothing, not even honor. You have become a slave to your own greed and hubris, enough to kill, maim and destroy others, and for what, “fame”. What “fame” does a murder have?

Some people are simply cruel, others are taught to be cruel, this happens in armies all over the world; we take decent people and turn them into killing machines. What would happen though, if those who would aspire to glorify themselves in war could find no soldier to command? Mill workers remained mill workers, farmers remained farmers, plumbers remained plumbers, in other words, people refused to fight?

Life would spring forward, people would treat others as human beings, after all, that’s what we are. What if arms makers went out of business, or better yet, production could be used to enhance rather than destroy people? The trillions of dollars spent could go to fighting disease, rebuilding nations ravaged by neglect because all of the money was spent on death and destruction was spent on life and education. Leaps in science, as opposed to nosediving into death.

Evil people could be rounded up and placed in jails and prisons, never being able to harm others again. War profiteers could have their money taken away, distributed to new forms of energy, agriculture and irrigation.

Life…a new beginning.

Peace,

Bob
