Certainly, we’re watching it being “called out”🤨
Yesterday it started to gel in my thoughts as I continued to keep abreast of the conflict in the Ukraine that we might be starting to witness an historic shift in the hegemony of War.
And then I read this today in Mark Sumners ongoing coverage:
“This highly connected, highly digital world is in the process of answering a question that may be among the most important ever asked: Is it possible to enact restrictions severe enough that they more than offset any possible gains to be made through a war of acquisition? We don’t yet know the answer to that question, but finding it may be a step toward ending war. Not this war. War.”
I have no memory of witnessing a collective world response of this magnitude pushing back on the fomenting of War.
It may very well prove to be an anomaly, but is it possible that the world has finally been damaged enough to have learned enough, especially as regards the machinations of War, to say “no more!” ?
Fuck You my “Lords & Masters”
There is a huge portion of the global body that has finally acquired enough a world view of things and no longer thinks regionally. This puts a serious cog in the wheels of War.
The age old lie that War is inherently human, hot wired into our DNA and therefore ineradicable, may be starting loose its status of immutablilty.
Along with the erosion of age old constructs like the inferiority and threat of “the other”, the
current lighting spread of information to all corners of the globe may have been the start of its undoing.
Too many now regard ‘the other’ as brothers.
Many of these imbedded beliefs are now being seen for what they are…fossils.
The Ukrainians themselves are providing a stellar example of just how to
Fucking No Longer Fucking Put Up With This Fucking Shit!
I hope we do not fail to comprehend the import of their example, as well as, the example of this extraordinary global response and that we grasp the significance of it as a potential blueprint for leading us away from
“Not this War. War.”
(It certainly gives me hope that we will be able to rally collectively to make the sacrifices necessary to save our planet from the worst of ongoing climate collapse…an effort that is being continually impeded by the wealthy and powerful and corporate interests. Of this Putin is a mere reflection.”
