Unpopular opinion:

The World Wars never ended, neither did the Cold War, and neither will the War on Terror.

Wars based on demonizing all people "over there" as equally scum will always result in the remainder of jingiosm after they're "over".

Want it to stop? See next tweet.
The only way to stop this is to realize that we're people.

And the world would have to do it - because if the majority of the world still thinks everyone born elsewhere is subhuman garbage, war is always around the corner.

Which means this is incredibly unlikely.

So what?
"Certainly the game is rigged - don't let that stop you; if you don't bet you can't win!" - Robert Heinlein

So be the better person - realize civilian casualties, and troops dying unnecessary deaths for a bankster or a corporation, and withdraw your consent.

It's very simple.
Because we WON'T get ahead by thinking destroying another country preserves freedom.

Neither the citizens of the US, nor any other nation, benefits from this more than the special interest hawks, politicians, and banks, who ALWAYS come out on top, no matter who's "right".
Be #antiwar. Learn another language. Appreciate foreign media. Talk to someone from outside your country. Talk to people in it.

You think mass shootings aren't a natural result of a warlike society? If so, I disagree.

Young people think murder is acceptable. Prove them wrong.
Because while people cloy for solutions, they are only too happy to tear everyone down, and not personally - except by hurling insults from behind the veil of online anonymity - but by the proxy of the state.

Banning things is not a solution. Government isn't either.

Because massacres are apolitical. They're more the result of personal choices to see others as less than human, and themselves as a better human, or the superior sort of human.

Look at war propaganda sometime. Look at the propaganda used to justify slavery.

Spot the difference.
So people want solutions? Many in this thread. You can change you now, and I try to change me daily.

It's a process.

Then raise your kids with this plasticity - this responsiveness. Don't let devices raise them. Don't let them learn from bullies how to live.

Stand up straight.
Cognitive dissonance is baked into the way society has always worked, and it's a cake none of us should have or eat.

Please recognize your potential role in the genealogy of death, and evolve past the mentalities which let it spread.

Together we live.
Apart we die.
