The nature of war and how we find an excuse for it.
It's valuable to watch different footage of WWI and WWII in different countries and to listen to those who took part in it. I think I understand the man who talks about the year after the war, when he'd returned to normal life, shutting down and stopped communication. I believe that extreme survival mode changes a person forever and watching the fuss that those around you make, about trivial aspects in life, easily triggers anger in that person.
I remember being overwhelmed by grief, in the last days of my mother's life, watching people's behaviour about trivial things and feeling anger, thinking they were stupid, ignorant. At other moments I felt part of a collective grieving with those around me.
Each population suffered for various reasons, in the war, but the pain was always the same, no matter one's nationality.
I'm now expressing a view that is highly controversial to some of you, possibly, but most of us don't know that wars (like this) are orchestrated and planned. For profit and power. It starts with infiltrators, creating animosity, division among a population and organising riots, or terrorist attacks, even false flag events. We've come to know of the fake arguments, justifications to invade Iraq.
In the present time, the British press, with the BBC fully controlled, publishes highly offensive views and comments on president Trump and president Putin. I've never witnessed such blatant lack of factual journalism as in Britain, as a Dutch citizen.
The instinctual drive in men, to run to war, in order to protect their wives and children, like the way indigenous tribes live, defending themselves against predators, human or animal, is readily called upon to this day. For, as is expressed in this video, there's a tendency in us to want to destruct and break down, in war.
Only, with the development of weapons of mass destruction, the idea to go to war in order to protect wife and children has become an illusion. As long as we're at war within ourselves, I believe we'll continue to seek justification for starting a war and project it on an external enemy.
We're at war mostly with ourselves, isn't that the root of all evil?
