Bears Repeating (and repeating)


~~~~~~~~~~~Libya, 2011~~~~~~~~~~~

"The truth is, they want you, you see, to be poor. If you don't know the reason, I'll tell you. It's to train you to know who your tamer is. Then, whenever he gives you a whistle and sets you against an opponent of his, you jump out and tear them to pieces."

Aristophanes: circa 422BC


Two World Wars, Vietnam, Iraq, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya.....Iran?

  5. Even tracking backwards - pre- the 2 world wars, the pattern continues - wars, empire-building......back and back....

    The patterning must be hard-wired into our human DNA, WWW. Once we had mastered how to grow crops, make fire, construct the wheel - off we jolly well went - in all the wrong directions.

    I see no end to it.

    So real without any gift wrapping.
    I must read more of his writings.

    As a young girl in high school I realized that all history, any history of war and violence down through the ages is the same, only the the outfits change.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
