() Former US President Jimmy Carter warned against a possible war with Iran Monday as he decried his nation’s involvement in unjust conflicts at a summit of Nobel Peace Prize laureates in Chicago.

My Commentary: Do not believe in the false religion of violence, murder and war as “necessary.”

“War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent.” 1984 – George Orwell

“Do not turn to the right or the left; Turn your foot away from evil”! – Míshlê [Proverbs] 4:27

“Speak, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the Law of Liberty”! –  Yaaqob (“James”) 2:12

My Commentary: The above illustration, by Stuart McMillen, was developed using the book, “Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Showbusiness,” by Neil Postman, which, among other things, juxtaposes Orwell’s “1984” with Huxley’s “Brave New World.”
