Venom (background) - 2003

Primary text:

As our world teeters on the brink of peace,
divided by the train wreck of cultures colliding,
it is easy to place blame on those charged with the execution of conflict
They are merely the tip of a sword,
thrust into battle by the inexorable crush of society in flux, the inevitability of history

War is, simply, one way the world reinvents itself

the catalyst that provokes ever-greater engines of destruction is the complicit agreement between boys to settle their differences with testosterone-fueled rage

all the while, women bear the repercussions of squabbles between boys,
they nurse the wounded from within their corsets and burqas,
rebuild homes and families so their sons can destroy them anew

There may still, perhaps always, in the course of human events,
be a need for war, though we can imagine otherwise

you are here

the time is now

Additional text (truisms):

war is an abhorrent but necessary agent of social change
"War is evil, but it is often the lesser evil" (George Orwell)

change your mind / there are other answers, other methods

war is a process; peace is a state

Take the time to listen and analyze

men declare themselves the victors of war; women are invariably the victims

demand the truth | question authority | give peace a chance | take the time to listen and analyze
