Reflections on T. Wolfe

Here we are in the second decade of the 21st century!  No flying cars yet, but we have handheld computers with all the information you could need in your palm. 

And yet we, as a society, have not figured out that the War and Peace game.  In fact we may have more war and more destructive war now than at any other time in history with our nuclear capable missiles, remote controlled drones, Abrams tanks, rocket propelled grenades, etc.

We have failed the Hippie and Beat Generations who fought against violence.  We have failed the Greatest Generation who gave their lives in the hopes that their children and other progeny will live in peace and freedom.  We have failed the Lost Generation who rejected American values in the post-War to End All Wars world.  How could we cause so much destruction?  How small of an imagination they had!

One thing we have achieved is in the language of war.  Our government's actions in Libya are not a war!  It is "kinetic military action" in response to a humanitarian crisis.  We are dropping love bombs on the Libyans to free them from the clutch of the Evil One.  Tell that to the hundreds or thousands of civilians killed already.

War is Peace!
Freedom is Slavery!
Ignorance is Strength!

Rest assured, America.
