Remembrance Day 2023
On Remembrance Day 2023 it is as important as ever to remember the two world wars of the 20th Century.
It is as important as ever to remember the courage of those who fought and died for our freedoms.
It is as important as ever to remember the millions upon millions of combatants and civilians who died or were permanently wounded.
On Remembrance Day 2023 it is as important as ever to reflect upon the scale of the death, destruction, trauma and inhumanity of it all.
It is as important as ever to reflect upon the apparent sheer futility of it all.
It is as important as ever to contemplate what actually caused these world wars: the wars before and the wars ever since.
It is surely within the realms of rationality to consider the possibility that all wars have been initiated, designed, directed, controlled, choreographed, and funded - for purpose of wealth and power by a small cabal of tyrants?
It is surely within the realms of rationality to consider the possibility, that at least for the past three centuries, that global gold and global money has been a root cause of all wars?
It is surely within the realms of rationality to consider the possibility that we, the people, have been consistently manipulated and conned for purpose of divide and conquer?
The history books tell us who won or lost the wars. At least they tell us who they want us to believe won the wars. In reality most wars seem to have been won by those who have initiated and directed the wars. In reality the people, of either side, have consistently lost the wars.
In 2023 it seems that humanity remains incapable of collectively learning a lesson from wars gone before. Currently we have two major wars happening in the world, with lots of smaller conflicts simmering on the brink of becoming major. While many of us continue to ponder how two world wars could possibly have happened, the present conflicts could very easily and quickly escalate into World War Three
The current wars in Ukraine/Russia and Israel/Palestine do seem, as per usual, to have been initiated, designed, directed, controlled, choreographed, and funded - for purpose of wealth and power by a small cabal of tyrants.
As in previous wars, people in those regions who have been victims of unthinkable savagery have no choice but to aggressively defend their community. Meanwhile, too many of us people who are not directly involved, continue to blindly and passionately take sides - to further promote the wars and further facilitate the global programme of divide and conquer. What we should be doing is figuring out who the tyrants are who are really responsible - the ones in plain sight and the ones behind the scenes. We need to try understand their game-plan and demand they be held to account. It is about all we can do – it is our only hope if we want the world to pull back from the brink.
This does not mean that we shouldn't respectfully commemorate those who courageously fought and died for our liberty in wars gone by. It means we should commemorate them even more diligently and profoundly. In most cases they had no choice but to fight, and die in defence of freedoms and human rights for their families and future generations.
In 2023, while we respectfully commemorate, we also urgently need to ponder and consider what it was they fought and died for - what those old wars, and the new wars, are really all about.
