"People create illusions like bubbles" that they live in.... "Indifferent people are cowards, and it is they who lead to the success of Hitlers'."

"Humanity will not be intimidated!"
Ramsey Clark, former Attorney General during the Johnson administration, founder of the International Action Center [ http://www.IACenter.org/ ], anti-war activist, lawyer, author, and founder of http://www.VoteToImpeach.org/ [ a website devoted to seeking the impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors" by and of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John Ashcroft, Condoleeza Rice, et al. ]
What kind of world do we live in anyway? Most of "us" don't want to face it, but we live in a very bleak world where millions of innocent people are murdered constantly, in the name(s) of so-called democracy and freedom. Yet many "Americans" and many others have monetary credit, so they have a semblance of security, and can keep the poorhouse "wolf away from their door(s)". Well, this Wolf, as in me, cannot be kept away from the doors of those who at least read my message(s); but I am not a "bad wolf", though most of those who read what I have to say will not completely face it and do much if anything RIGHT about it.
There is a fantasy world of apparent prosperity; but for most Americans and people the world over, there is the reality of being poor, and of suffering from the degradation which could be very-greatly alleviated with only a fraction of the billions of dollars that are being spent on slaughtering innocent people all over the globe. Yet most "Americans" have been brainwashed with the illusion that "we" must carry out the wars of aggression for the sake of "liberty" and "democracy"; and because "we" have been indoctrinated and conditioned with that illusion for so long, most of "us" believe it. But it is a great big, HUGE lie!
Most "Americans" ignore the great deal of suffering going on in the world, brainwashed into believing the lie(s) that there's little or nothing they can do about it; and because they believe the lie(s), most of them DON'T do anything about it; or so little of the right thing(s), that a Truly Healthy dent is not made in the suffering, and billions of people go on suffering intolerable, unhealthy lives, full of so much fear, resentment, envy, and desperation that many of them want to violently get back at those who repress them and keep them down in the pit of despondency, while too many other people "prosper" at their expense.
It is no wonder that there are so many with extremist views, who in suffering poverty a long time themselves, or as the result of viewing and hating the intolerable poverty in this world for too long, strike back in very violent ways, adding to the slaughter, particularly when their sovereign countries are bombarded with violence and murder by the greatest "democracy(ies)" on Earth; but "we" have been indoctrinated and conditioned to believe the lie(s) that it is allegedly okay for those "democratic" countries to perpetrate the slaughter(s), but that it is supposedly not okay for those sovereign people(s) to defend themselves, though they have just as much right(s) to defend themselves, and will do so in any way(s) they can, especially if they are limited in the ways to do so that are at their disposal, even if it means sacrificing many innocent people and themselves in the process!
But the multi-national, global fascists, tyrants and oppressors are out in force to violently and murderously shove submission to their repression(s) down the throats of anyone and everyone whose lands possess great wealth in petro- chemical- mineral- cheap workforce resources, no matter who dies in the process, and how many are being sacrificed for the love of money; and many millions of innocent people ignominiously go down into the slough of death while being ignored by the 200 million "Americans" who profess to be "Christians" and to have Christian Unconditional Love and Compassion, the ultimate in hypocrisy, and so unlike God that most of them will not go to heaven because they have grieved the Holy Spirit of God away from them!
The God of Compassion and Unconditional Love does not tolerate the foregoing in the least; and He will not allow it go on for much longer at all; but in His Great Unconditional Love and Compassion, He has given humankind six thousands years of chances to overcome and cease their atrocities, and their very desire for atrocities; and, contrary to common Machiavellian brainwashing, those atrocities and the desire for them are NOT an inseparable, unavoidable, acceptable part of human nature, and they CAN be overcome as they ARE by those non-violent people who ONLY seek Peace, for God ONLY blesses those who ONLY seek after True Peace! "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they will be called the children of God." (Matthew 5:9.) But the reverse is also True, that those who are not peacemakers will NOT be called the children of God; therefore, for all of us who want to be right with God, it behooves all of us to ONLY be peacemakers, to not suffer (from) the illusion(s) of so-called acceptable violence, and to wake others' up to their God-given Duty(ies)!
"Humanity WILL NOT be intimidated" (id., Ramsey Clark) by those who claim to be peacemakers, like all of the present Bush administration, and are nothing but warmakers and grave threats to peace all over the globe! All despots like Bush and Company have believed that "The People" cannot govern themselves; but the millions of True Americans who realize what is really going on, CAN govern themselves, and DO want to do so; and they will not be intimidated and kept from taking their government back, and making it a government of True Peace rather than militarism, war, corporate greed, racism, and international mass-murder!
ALL OF US MUST UNMASK, IN ANY AND ALL NON-VIOLENT WAYS THAT WE CAN, THE ILLUSION(S), INDIFFERENCE AND COWARDICE OF THE FASCIST "HITLERS'" IN CONTROL OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT TODAY, AND THOSE WHO GO ALONG WITH THEM, AND STOP THEIR IMPERIALISTIC PROGRAMS OF RACIST WORLDWIDE GENOCIDE, THEIR "FIRST-STRIKE" ATTACK(S), INVASION(S) AND CONQUERING(S) OF VIRTUALLY, IF NOT FULLY, DEFENSELESS SOVEREIGN NATIONS, IN THE FACE OF "OUR" EXTREME AND EXCESSIVE MILITARY "SUPERIORITY" THAT THEY DON'T HAVE A CHANCE OF SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDING THEMSELVES AGAINST, AND STOP THE U.S. GOVERNMENT'S COLONIALIZATION AND DOMINATION OF THEM, ALL OF WHICH HAVE THE INALLIENABLE RIGHT(S) TO BE TOTALLY FREE FROM ALL OF SAME! DO IT! DO IT NOW! DO IT BEFORE IT IS FOREVER TOO LATE FOR ANY FURTHER INNOCENT CASUALTIES AT THE HANDS OF ALL OF THESE BRUTAL, HORRIFIC REIGNORS OF GLOBAL TERROR!
