When is Humanity Going to Get That We’re All in This Together?

Let’s Stop a War before it Starts

Posted by honestpoet on April 9, 2007

Thanks to Homeyra for emailing me this link. Here’s a blog that’s got the right idea: let’s send messages to the folks behind the scenes who are agitating for war, telling them to “think again.”

As I commented over at my friend Monte’s blog, the resistance to the invasion of Iraq marked the first time in history that the people have protested a war before it even started. Maybe we’ll actually be able to stop one this time.

I don’t know about my fellow Americans, but I for one am not going to stand silently by while my government bombs more brown people for profit. This fascism has to end. So many have commented about the German people’s tolerance of Nazism. How is history going to paint us?

  1. I concur with your last point. Just because the scale of the U.S. administration’s wrongdoings hasn’t reached Holocaust level doesn’t mean there’s no parallel to be drawn. If Nazi Germany has taught us anything about the citizens’ role in politics, it’s that a passive democracy is an oxymoron.

    Hi Jason. Good to see you again.

    Yes, exactly. Fascism doesn’t actually mean you have to perform a genocide. It means that government and industry are bedfellows (to the detriment of the people and other nations), and that’s exactly what we’ve got here.
