"How can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism?"
—  Howard Zinn, Ten years ago today, Oct. 7, 2001, the U.S. launched the invasion of Afghanistan. (via Facebook)

"History does not offer us predictable scenarios for immense changes in consciousness and policy. Such changes have taken place, but always in ways that could not be foretold, starting often with imperceptibly small acts, developing along routes too complex to trace. All we can do is to make a start, wherever we can, to persist, and let events unfold as they will. On our side are colossal forces. There is the desire for survival of 5 billion people. There are the courage and energy of the young, once their adventurous spirit is turned toward the ending of war rather than the waging of war, creation rather than destruction, and world friendship rather than hatred of those on the other side of the national boundaries. There are artists and musicians, poets and actors in every land who are ready to take the world musical and eloquent and beautiful for all of us, if we give them the chance. They, perhaps more than anyone, know what we are missing by our infatuation with violence. They also know the power of the imagination and can help us to reach the hearts and souls of people everywhere."

Why We Fight

A documentary on the commerce of war, and how the military industrial complex profits so much from war, that it must create wars to continue the growth of it’s business.

There is always a reason to fight, commerce is just one them. Peace, justice, freedom, are a few others….

I read so much about this while I was in school and it makes me sick to my stomach when I think about it. I need to take the time to watch this though.
