Chapter 12: Primed For A War Economy

While Americans are primed with a plethora of subtle and insidious chemical toxins and intoxicants, genetically altering compounds and disease causing substances we're also being primed for eternal war.

These wars won't be as apparent, as media hyped, as prevalent in our lives as Vietnam or World War II were. These will be quiet wars that take innocent but vocal lives. The machine of Imperial domination, with the oil of our hard earned taxes, operates even while we sleep with complete and total impunity.

We're being inundated with chemicals that are altering not only our ability to think clearly, we are no longer percipient, but these chemicals have a distinctive effect on the human ability to feel and react to empathy. We are apathetic. We just don't care, even if we communicate verbally that we do. Our actions display that we don't.

It isn't an easy task to understand war unless we're actually there, doing the fighting, killing the perceived enemy. The soldiers, our young spirited boys and girls that we propagandize into killing then return with a new perspective that we can only view as an outsider. But they know. They feel the heartache, the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as it's labeled. That label is deceiving. What they're feeling, what they're experiencing, the disease they have isn't really a disease at all. It's what happens to a human being when he's taken lives in the bloody manner we call war.

Our society, over the past 20 years or so, has been primed to accept war. And that we do. Even though the taking of many innocent lives still equates to the taking of many individual lives. Each one as important as our own lives. We somehow justify their deaths as necessary for peace. War is the mass murder of individual human beings justified by calling it war.

Yes, the inmates are running the asylum and they're gone madder than mad. It's a truly frightening revelation, man's inhumanity to man.
