Ways of Looking at:
War

i

War is over.
War as large scale personal combat, and war for aggrandizement, war as the sport of nations, is over.

War as a seduction is dead.
War as destruction of life and property continues.

ii

1

Nuclear weapons make war morally and economically impossible. War is now suicide.

2

War will be fought by drones and robots, perhaps augmented by biological horrors.

3

The main problems facing mankind, global warming and war, cannot be solved by war, but primarily by cooperation.

iii

War is a fantasy,
of my group fighting my enemies in both collective and personal ccmbat,
resides in our collective psyches,
ready to be triggered,
ready to be weaponized.

iv

War as in a country going to war
and participating in the war effort
is dead.
The war will come like an epidemic
or not "come" at all.

v

We are drawn towards the taking of blood.
It is the ultimate reality.
We are being drawn into dark waters.

vi

We are too easily bored.
Even life itself has become somewhat boring.

vii

War is no longer combat of armies
as we can scorch most locations an army can secure.
