governments need an enemy -

Watching the movie Valkyrie, one realizes how many Germans were upset with Hitler and the SS and how many risked and lost their lives to stop him. We, of course, weren't given much of that history because we needed an enemy, so the German people as a whole were an enemy, and then, the Russians and communism. Look what has been done in the name of defeating "communism."

The amount of money spent on this planet on guns, war and hatred is staggering. We might be buying stoves for women in Darfur instead.

We believe the propaganda of our own country as others believe theirs.

When will it stop?
