Consistency

April 16, 2018

“I don’t mind about the war, it’s one of the things I like to watch, if it is a war going on. ‘Cause then I know then if our side is winning, if our side is losing.”

Roger Waters

“What God Wants, part 1”    From “Amused To Death”

Let me see if I’ve got this straight.

If Oceania chooses to go to war with East Asia over their use of chemical weapons with all the moral authority of the Lord Of The Flies.

Justified, because they are using chemical weapons against their own people. (Or is it Eurasia?)

Oceania sees fit to obliterate those chemical producing plants as a righteous and *moral thing to do.

Should then, it only be fair and to be expected that either East Asia or Eurasia might go to war with Oceania because they discovered it has forge factories to make guns that are used against the people of Oceania?

Just looking for a little consistency.

Or, or, has the military industrial complexes in each country, stockpiled so many weapons, it would be unjustified to make more, unless a few hundred or so were expended, covered with blood and buried in the sand?

In the perpetual pursuit to placate the proles, that they might be kept unsatisfactorily busy, so they are able to feed their families. Pay taxes and keep the vicious circle of violence going.

* “People are touchy about that sort of thing. And let me ask you this while I have you good, clean Americans here.

This is a moral question, not rhetorical.

I’m looking for the answer. What is the moral difference between cutting off one guy’s head or two or three or five or ten and dropping a big bomb on a hospital and killing a whole bunch of sick kids?

Has anybody in authority given you an explanations of the difference?”

Dead is dead, right? Either by liquid, lead or laser guided missiles?

This unfortunate post came about because a coworker with whom I share a work truck with, volunteered to inform me he left the radio on the Faux channel.

As he was giddy to hear about Trump’s tweet about the bombing in Syria.

(It’s not a football game, *other*ucker. Human beings lives are at stake of which I assume you are one of them. #ucknut.)

Projecting that I’d want to hear, about 40% of my taxes are wasted destroying property and people, elsewhere on the planet.

When in reality, would much rather have it to spend that myself on grandchildren’s dance recitals, competitions and wrestling matches.

“Hey, the war made us feel better about ourselves” “Really?” Who are these people with such low self-esteem, …they need a war to feel better about themselves?

I saw them on the news waving their flags. Can I recommend that instead of a war to feel better about yourselves, perhaps……sit-ups, maybe a fruit-cup, six to eight glasses of water a day.

I’m not telling you how to live, I’m just recommending a perhaps better way to feel better about yourself. And we can avoid the conflagration, ha, ha, ha… Merely a suggestion. Take a tip?”

– Bill Hicks
