Lament For Humanity: A 50 Year Reflection

Recommended Posts

 BigRed    150

Deeply affected by the death of my two uncles in World War II, on 1 July 1966, the 24th anniversary of the USS Sturgeon sinking of the Japanese prisoner-of-war ship Montevideo Maru which killed the man after whom I am named, I decided that I would devote my life to working out why human beings are violent and then developing a strategy to end it.

The good news about this commitment was that it was made when I was nearly 14 so, it seemed, anything was possible. Now I am not so sure.

Here is my report on 50 years of concerted effort to understand and end human violence.

In 1966 one of my immediate preoccupations was war. The US genocidal war on Vietnam was raging and, as a sycophantic ally of the United States, Australia had been drawn into it some years previously. Trying to understand what this war was really about was challenging, particularly given the limited (mainstream) sources of information available to me at the time.

But I was deeply troubled by another problem too. I had seen a photo of a starving African child in the newspaper when I was ten and I found this most disturbing. Why did adults let children starve? I wondered. And trying to make sense of this by reading newspaper reports or asking those around me was utterly unenlightening.

So where are we today?

It's a noble and lonely quest you have embarked on.  I wish you all he luck and support.  But I think you answered your own question here: "Human beings will end violence, or Violence will end human beings".  It is the latter I am afraid, Sir.  The elite, Bilderberg mob will stop at nothing to achieve what they envisage and violence, death and destruction are but part of their "tools" !

Yes, we have nothing to fear but fear itself!


Well done!
