Wars can be reactive, waged to stop perceived tyranny, violence, genocide and threat. Or they can be waged proactively to gain a specific objective from a population not engaged in violence. Proactive wars are initiated because the aggressors believe they can prevail, or they are driven by hates that overwhelm calculation.
- We acknowledge that the constructs we call war, terrorism, street violence, violent crime, rape, hate crimes, hazardous products, mass murders, genocide, famine and poverty linked disease are all preventable, are all equally intolerable, all have their roots in hate and displacement, and all can be addressed by the aggressive pursuit of Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systemic solutions. We urge that every victim and every family of a victim be nurtured and cared for by our society so that they do not suffer from the economic, physical and emotional trauma of inequality. We urge that every victimizer and potential victimizer be viewed as our systemic failure to successfully include them in the dynamic potential of a life without violence and to inclusively nurture , educate and care for them beginning at the earliest possible age.
- Memorial Day helps us never forget the past. It also helps us never forget that we are the solution, through systems, clear objectives and accountability. What are the objectives of our nation? What is our support system for Nurture, Equality and Truth? We are looking for inclusive objectives and an action plan from the leaders of our nation and from the followers, not politics or business as usual.
- Lets start by declaring a war against hate, on all fronts, from all perspectives, on behalf of the billions of future victims. Lets agree that it is unconscionable and unforgivable that the Supreme Court, The Congress, Corporate and Government Executives, and approximately 1/3 of the eligible voters of America desecrate the majesty of the US Constitution and the enormous sacrifice of people acting in service to our nation by denying equality for all, by lying and misleading for self serving purposes, and by failing to grasp that our future depends upon massive investments in the very people who are failing to prosper, including our veterans and their families, including all people victimized by the corruption of power, and including every child hoping that we actually care about each and every one of them and their future.
