LewRockwell / Gary D. Barnett
“He who joyfully marches to music rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.”
~ Albert Einstein
If I had my way, the word “patriotism” would be stricken from the language, as it has but one real meaning, and that is that the political state is God, and that individual and individual human right and responsibility have no meaning or worth. Compassion and love are abandoned in every state of war, and without compassion, only hate and indifference remains. The term “war is hell” is exactly correct, for what other evil can compare with the barbarous slaughter of every form of humanity in the name of ‘country’ or religion. It should be noted that all war is solely for the benefit of the ruling class, and therefore, it is the bane of mankind. It brings nothing but horror, maiming, torture, weeping, and murder, and is satisfying only to those deranged psychopaths and monsters who revel in killing in order to seek power and control.
It is certainly no secret that this country called America has committed untold atrocities against humanity in the name of war since before and after its founding. It has been guilty of total aggression and aggressive war for 93% of its existence, (probably more) and continues to war and threaten war against much of the world on a continuous basis. The current warmongering and threat of all-out-war by the U.S. is ever-present; more now than ever before, and this evil is ignored by most of this weak and apathetic mob of non-thinking, non-caring citizens, who continue to worship the state and wave its bloody flag in support of killing.
Ongoing USCENTCOM (United States Central Command) operations include ‘exercises’ against falsely claimed ‘adversaries’ within the regions including ISIS, the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and the Iranian ‘Threat’ Network, and all its proxies. The U.S. falsely claims to “influence ‘adversarial’ decision-making and behavior, countering disinformation, amplifying U.S. resolve, and deterring acts of aggression promulgated by state actors; namely, Iran, Russia, China, Syria, and their regional surrogates.” Military Mission support Operations (MISO) are conducted across the USCENTCOM AOR including Afghanistan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan and Yemen.
In addition, and just recently, the U.S. and Saudi, Arabia have gone on ‘high alert’ due to a so-called warning of an ‘imminent’ Iranian attack, of course based on what is referred to as Saudi ‘intelligence.’ There are current military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea; a direct threat to North Korea. India and the U.S. are now planning joint military drills very near the China border, antagonizing this large nuclear power. Japan and the U.S. are conducting large-scale military exercises in Hokkaido. The U.S. and the Philippines are holding combat drills in anticipation of a war with China. The U.S. is also currently staging combat center rotation drills against China in Hawaii, and U.S., Spanish, and French NATO forces, including the American 101st Airborne division, are implanted just miles away from the Ukrainian border in Romania; antagonizing Russia even more. They are literally on the Russian border, no different than Russia putting heavy weaponry and troops on our border with Canada or Mexico. The arrogance, hypocrisy, and extreme risk of this is lost on the average American citizen.
There are certainly many other military exercises in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and elsewhere, but there are also active wars either led by the U.S., or aggression involving the U.S. Think of the war in Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, the U.S. proxy war and slaughter of innocents in Yemen, and of course many others.
This is the country most of you dishonestly support unconditionally. This is the country of which you claim to be a ‘patriot.’ This is the country of which you proudly display the flag of death. This is the country that claims to be exceptional, but in the case of its warring and militarized terror campaigns, it is only ‘exceptional’ in that it is the most prolific murdering capital in the world. Given the undying support offered by this blind population for terroristic aggression, it is obvious that the masses do not consider the true nature of the meaning of ‘country’ and heinous war; at least not in the proper context. The ‘country’ you worship is not the country at all, but is instead the ruling ‘elite’ class, and their murdering and enforcement goons in government and the military. Most equate the term ‘country’ with supporting all that is done in their name by government, but the people do not control the powerful forces of evil who rule over them, and commit atrocities in their name and with their permission, because they voluntarily allow the state to commit its murderous reign without resistance.
The current aggressive nature of war being either planned, staged, or pursued actively by the U.S., is beyond the imagination of any sane person, but that does not even begin to tell the whole tale. Active war and terrorism are currently being waged by this state against its own people as well, as has been evidenced over the past 3 years of physical and psychological warfare based on the fraudulent ‘virus’ conspiracy plotted decades in advance. It has been all-consuming in nature based on the irrefutable harm that has been purposely and methodically forced on all in this country. This is happening worldwide as well, but since the U.S. is the head of the snake of total aggression, and claims the world ‘leadership’ role, stopping this monster by negating all its power could change the world view entirely.
If the people do not stand up against this tyranny, where will it end? If the masses continue to wallow in self-pity, indifference, and total dependence on the state, what will be our fate? If the U.S. is allowed to continue its totalitarian push toward total domination by the few, thereby building a global cabal and a one world governing system bent on ruling over the earth, how can freedom ever be restored or survive?
These questions seem to assume complicated answers, but that is really not the case. Any return to individual responsibility and defense of self against state rule can move mountains, because regardless of the weakness of the crowd, it should be obvious that we outnumber the tyrants by a multiple factor of millions. Thousands rule, while billions serve them. In reality, does this make any sense whatsoever? Can you not see the folly in being blind to the fact that each of us has great power over ourselves, and therefore together over the state, and our own lives and future?
Negate the state, negate the politicians and political class, ignore all orders and mandates, ask for nothing; only demand your freedom and take it. Do not allow the state to steal your wealth, never ask permission to obtain your own liberty by participating in the voting fraud, elections, and political process built and sustained for the single purpose of controlling you, and never allow the propaganda and trickery of the ruling scum to divide you. Clutch and hold your family, friends, neighbors, and all others in an effort to regain proper societal norms instead of thriving on self-destruction, constant jealousy, and hostility. Love and compassion can easily defeat indifference and hate, but a self-awakening is necessary in order to see the light of freedom and joy.
We can begin by opposing all war, all conflict, all aggression against others; in essence, demanding harmony and cooperation instead of clinging to false fears that have been intentionally ingrained into our psyche by an evil force called the state. There is nothing to fear but your own weakness and cowardice, and your willingness to only rely on others to design and control your lives. The state has no real power unless you give that power to them voluntarily. Without your support, they lose all ability to rule. Without your support, they cannot harm you. Without your support, those who seek power over you will wither and die, and with that death will come a life of freedom.
“If we don’t end war, war will end us.”

Truth11 Films 5th short film (released 11 years ago): We have been tricked into fighting perpetual wars of mass genocide for pointless profit. There is no enemy. The enemy is within the US government. All exterior enemies are created to justify the advancing military industrial complex.
There is only one way war will end. The masses must rise up, unite, and demand world peace.
