The idea that peace can be brought about by war is about as stupid as thinking that only fire can bring on the cold. Though the end of a war does of course result in peace, before the war began, peace was of course there as well.
Warmongers these days seem to follow the: “This is so stupid, it just might work!”, train of thought. The warfare justification is often twisted into some sort of reverse logic, weapons are given to rebels to create peace, first attacks on foreign soil are called “preemptive strikes”, people defending their homes are called insurgents. Meanwhile the killers on both sides of a conflict think a higher being is exclusively on their side, yet a greater possibility is that any divine power probably dislikes all sides enough to force them into the hellish combat in the first place.
This shirt shows an image of a peace sign made of various weapons of war, this is probably the only time you will actually see weapons creating peace.

The Start Of War

My eleven year old son asked me the other day why wars start. This is obviously a very difficult topic to explain properly, so I decided to over simply it for him as much as I could.

I told him, the usual causes of war are not much different than why we have fights on a school playground. Often one person has something the other person wants, and the instigator feels he has the power to take it from them, sometimes it is a physical object, but sometimes the bully feels threatened by the victim’s perceived power, and feels the need to take their power away, before they become too powerful.

Of course the other key ingredients in wars are a total disregard for the needs of others, or human life in general, and a defiant victim standing up for themselves.

I then used this short video below to show him exactly why wars start. Enjoy !


Gorrilaz – Fire Coming Out Of The Monkey’s Head Lyrics

We hear stories like this all the time and we see movies about them and of course songs, but what usually people can’t quite imagine that things like this actually not only happen, but are happening in multiple countries and places in the world right now as we speak.

Money rules this world, and lets face it some people will do anything to get it.

Hope you enjoy the song.

Narrator (speaking)
Once upon a time at the foot of a great mountain,
There was a town where the people known as Happyfolk lived.
Their very existence a mystery to the rest of the world,
Obscured as it was by great clouds.
Here they played out their peaceful lives,
Innocent of the litany of excess and violence,
That was growing in the world below.
To live in harmony with the spirit of the mountain called Monkey was enough.
Then one day, Strangefolk arrived in the town.
They came in camouflaged,
Hidden behind dark glasses,
But no one noticed them; they only saw shadows.
You see, without the truth of the eyes, the Happyfolk were blind.

2D (singing)
Falling out of aeroplanes and hiding out in holes
Waiting for the sunset to come, people going home
Jump out from behind them, and shoot them in the head
Now everybody dancing the dance of the dead
The dance of the dead.
The dance of the dead.

Narrator (speaking)
In time, the Strangefolk found their way into the higher reaches of the mountain,
And it was there that they found the caves,
Of unimaginable sincerity and beauty.
By chance, they stumbled upon the place where all good souls come to rest.
The Strangefolk, they coveted the jewels in these caves above all things,
And soon they began to mine the mountain,
It’s rich seam fueling the chaos of their own world.
Meanwhile, down in the town, the Happyfolk slept restlessly,
Their dreams invaded by shadowy figures digging away at their souls.
Every day, people would wake and stare at the mountain.
Why was it bringing darkness into their lives?
And as the Strangefolk mined deeper and deeper into the mountain,
Holes began to appear, bringing with them
A cold and bitter wind that chilled the very soul of the Monkey.
For the first time, the Happyfolk felt fearful for,
They knew that soon the Monkey would stir from its deep sleep.
Then there came a sound, distant first, that grew into castrophany so immense it could be heard far away in space (echoes).
There were no screams.
There was no time.
The mountain called Monkey had spoken.
There was only fire.
And then,
Nothing.

2D (singing)
Oh, little town in U.S.A.
The time has come to see
All the things you think you are
But where were you when it all came down on me
Did you call me now?
