Is War “Inevitable” in America, or Do State Forces Conspire to Keep Peace Out of Reach?

The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “The Doublethink is Strong Among Neo-Liberals“…

Rayn: The Doublethink is strong with this one!

"Epic FAIL"

“Epic FAIL”

Katherine C.: Ok, you do realize that no matter what president we get, given the history and present state of the US and the world, and everything the US has dipped its hand into, some form of war is pretty much inevitable.

Jordan K.: Cancer pretty much inevitable too, does that mean we accept it or should we keep trying to find a cure?

Adam G.: Regardless of which party is in control, capitalism needs war and imperialism to stay alive.

Rayn: Of course, Katherine, you comment begs the question: “then, why does the Texan above have a bumper sticker containing the name ‘Obama’ with the a peace sign inside of the ‘O’?” An even better question would be, “why did Obama receive a Nobel Peace Prize, then, if he simply continued this ‘inevitable’ war you speak of?”

Either way, I reject your fallacious Appeal to probability as a cause for inaction, Katherine, and replace it with logic. Slavery is at an all-time high right now in the world. Should we apply your faulty reasoning to this issue, as well, so as to wash our hands of the matter, and do nothing about it? I mean, it’s going to happen anyway, so why bother, right? WRONG!

And, while you may claim that no matter which president gets in, there will be more war, this is actually just Circular reasoning. Since 2004, the public has consistently been presented with a False dichotomy wherein BOTH of the major party primary candidates are PRO-WAR! We have NO IDEA what would take place if this “framing” of the issues were not taking place – with the full support of the mainstream media monopoly!

When our government engages in War Crimes and Crimes against peace as a BIPARTISAN matter of policy, it is completely illegitimate, unacceptable and repugnant, deserving neither our respect, our support, nor our tax dollar funding, as Americans! (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)

Google “Democide” for One of Life’s Most Important Lessons!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Bastiat Institute,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Death by government: 145 Million in the 20th Century. Private murders: 8.5 Million in the 20th Century" (artwork by Bastiat Institute)

“Death by government: 145 Million in the 20th Century. Private murders: 8.5 Million in the 20th Century”

My Commentary: Google “Democide” to understand this illustration. Then, realize that the numbers shown here are actually outdated, as the first figure has been readjusted by two separate sources to be over 200 million dead:

20th Century Democide:

Deaths by Mass Unpleasantness: Estimated Totals for the Entire 20th Century:

As more investigation is done, I’m sure that both stats will continue to climb, since the margin of error leans largely towards overall underestimation. However, the enormous discrepancy between the two numbers will remain largely the same!

As you can see, humanity cannot empower liars, thieves and murderers to protect us from liars, thieves, and murderers! The very notion that we ever could do so is completely ILLOGICAL! Enabling governments to have a legal monopoly on the use of violent force under the pretext of “protecting” their “citizens” is oldest and most effective recipe for mass murder!

Discussing the Fallacy of Negotiating with Terrorist State

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “It’s Time to Stop Negotiating with Terrorists!“…

Rayn: It’s time to stop negotiating with these terrorists!

“Government: the brilliant idea that we should stop lunatics from lying, murdering, and stealing from us by hiring lunatics to lie, murder and steal from us.”

Andy H.: Riot!

Rayn: It is a riot, isn’t it!? I laugh every time I see this illustration!
