MM Book 1 Chapter 3-20

WAR IS *NOT* MORALLY JUST; lack of morality "builds" war - traditional Christian "Just War Theory", "just cause" determinations, sense of "imminent threat", "social [corporate] obligations", etc., all *excuse* mass slaughter in the cause of group selfishness - WAR IS BUILT, DEVELOPED - the US/UK seen as the "messianic" nation(s), in God's service [generally held public view]; WAR IS *NOT* AN AGENCY OF GOD, MAN DOES *NOT* HAVE JUST AUTHORITY TO WAR !! - God is NOT (self)propaganda, GOD IS TRUTH; developed sin, imposed evil must be overcome by good !! - AGAPE TRUTH, PURE MOTIVE vs. self-serving propaganda of any variant; the LIE told, claimed for benefit/deception; even God's Word taken/used for LIES !! - using Christ [in vain (in self)], and "being and doing" Christ are NOT the same !! -- WAR IS BIG BUSINESS [business is war; cause/effect; resultant] !! -- OUR COLLECTIVE SINS/EVIL MUST BE LAID BARE, REALIZED AND REPENTED OF, WE MUST (RE)TURN TO GOD !! -- State imposed legality is NOT God's legality !! -- war does NOT ennoble a generation, it does NOT give it meaning; violence is NOT a means of communication; WAR IS NOT ENDURING, ONLY LOVE IS ENDURING !! - war "media" is complicit in the myth making, the excuses for dehumanization: human beings turned into objects - the CARNAL LUST OF/FOR WAR vs. the *ugly* truth about ourselves: WAR IS ORGANIZED DEATH !! - WAR DOES NOT UNIFY, IT DOES NOT GIVE US VALUES vs. State exaltation, heroic idolation - WAR *PERVERTS* SOCIETY AND INDIVIDUALS: PATRIOTISM IS SELF-GLORIFICATION, IT IS PREJUDICE vs. THE OTHER - WAR IS *NOT* SELF-PRESERVATION, IT IS SUICIDE !! - VIOLENCE BEGETS VIOLENCE UNTIL SOMEONE SAYS ENOUGH, STOP !! - the COURAGE of FORGIVENESS, a GOD-LEVEL AWARENESS is evidenced when the "strongest" surrenders to PEACE !!
