The famous words: They shall beat their swords into plow­shares and their spears into prun­ing hooks, nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nei­ther shall they learn war no more” are attrib­uted to Isa­iah in 700 B.C. Abo­li­tion of war. An age-old dream? Ide­al­is­tic? Yes. But as the plan­et moves clos­er to destruc­tion we must abol­ish war. War and the threat of war. It’s an old sto­ry. Pop­u­la­tions are sub­ject­ed to pro­pa­gan­da. Fear is man­u­fac­tured. We deploy our troops to fight around the world. At the begin­ning of the Cold War, Sen­a­tor Arthur Van­den­berg told Pres­i­dent Har­ry Tru­man that if want­ed a mil­i­ta­rized U.S. for­eign pol­i­cy he’d bet­ter scare the hell out of Amer­i­can peo­ple.” That’s been Washington’s play­book ever since. Every­where we look there are threats or poten­tial threats. Let’s get rid of war before it gets rid of us.
