1. “If Killing Is Wrong, Then War Is Too
Throughout history, ruling elites have manufactured fear and hate to manipulate people into acting contrary to their natural, peaceful instincts. They start by dehumanizing and demonizing the intended enemy and anyone who opposes them in their own country. They wrap their arguments in the flag, proclaiming that it’s right, it’s noble, it’s patriotic to kill in the name of the Fatherland, the Motherland, or the Homeland. This evil subterfuge is an essential tool for the ruling elites. Without it, they would not be able to wage war.
We don’t need to teach people it’s wrong to kill, because they already know that. What we have to do is to teach them that it’s not right or noble or patriotic to kill someone who has done you no harm or who does not directly threaten you. It’s not your duty to kill merely because your so-called leaders tell you to.
On the contrary, we must teach them that it’s just as wrong to kill someone next door to you merely because they said something nasty about your grandmother as it is to kill someone in another country whom the president labels as an enemy. We must all say, “I am not at war.” If enough of us say it, they can’t have wars anymore.
