War is an act of murder at every level, and at every turn a criminal undertaking. Aggressive war is simply killing without just cause. War is often begun as self-defense then turns quickly into aggression at the first moment possible, usually the first day. In the case of the United States, no war is or has ever been about real self-defense – every war was aggressive and criminal murder. Typically people claim patriotism in order to hide from this truth. They claim national pride, which is nothing more than state worship, and they rally round the flag as if that can disguise them from being complicit in the slaughter of innocents. Those who support aggressive war are simply immoral fools.
Those that would send the children of others to die in war should volunteer to die themselves, but they are the true cowards among us, and always lounge in government mansions when the killing begins. They come out to hand out medals posthumously to the families of those they used as fodder for their own benefit and political agendas. All in the Executive Branch, all in Congress, all in any political partnerships that profit from war, and all those who claim false intelligence to stoke the fires of conflict, all these and more should be the first and only combatants in any war. No man of worth would ask others to die in his stead for the state.
All war is immoral, illegitimate, and senseless, but due to government existence at every level, it is the lifeblood of the state. The power of the state lies in its ability to control all of society, for without that control, society would take care of itself, and would have no need for rulers or wars. But through fear, division, and greed, the people can be convinced to go along, and accept the lie that they are doing so voluntarily because they believe the absolute nonsense of “We the people.” This is the biggest lie of all.
No nation-state as we know them today is valid, as all states tend to seek a hierarchical structure of power under the guise of protecting the common man collectively. No individual has need for such false protection. The beginning of this United States of America experiment was said to be about freedom of the individual, while all along, the hierarchy knew that it was about garnering power to the elite. What started out as a few separate colonies quickly became separate states with a new ruling class, and then one nation-state was formed and centralized, with the people’s subservience to the government. This progression was intended all along, and so the sought-after tyrannical state was planned. Today we live as slaves in a society with a ruling structure of elite oligarchs. This is now a nation that is in constant war, and has become the largest and most murderous empire in the history of the world.
We are told every day that we are at great risk from dangerous threats from afar. We are told that terrorists are out to get us all, and that we need to allow the government and its hired murderers to prosecute war around the world. We are told America is great, and that God is on our side. We are told that the war machine must grow and save us from these constant threats. We are told to applaud and worship those that do the killing in our names. We are told not to question the state’s motives, and not to expose the truths about these wars of aggression because that may cause dissent and harm our “national security.”
These are all lies. This is all propaganda. The facts are the opposite of what this propaganda presents. Much of the rest of the world is in danger of U.S. aggression. In other words, “the enemy is us.” The U.S. is the terrorist state, the U.S. is the thief that steals our property, and the U.S. is the greatest threat to the world. The U.S. is secure but tells its citizens they are all in danger from outside threats. The U.S. claims other nations are threats, but in truth it is the other nations who are in danger and have a real national security risk from the U.S.
All empires eventually fail, and cease to exist. This one is no different, except that it will be one of the shortest empires in history. The U.S. is the world’s main empire, and without a forced stop to this madness, it will end in ruin, in riots, civil unrest, in war, and with more and more bloodshed.
Yes, the American Empire will fall, but it won’t be due to outside threats. It will be due to falsely espoused values, of internal strife and divisiveness, of mass corruption, of political upheaval, of monetary suicide, and of collective immorality. Collectivism breeds empire and allows it to flourish, and because of the loss of individual thought it becomes the internal disease that leads to the disintegration of that empire. This is the real America, not the land of the free and home of the brave, but a collective mob of ignorant sheep awaiting their slaughter due to their own weakness, immorality, and stupidity.
