First Casualty of War is Truth
The first casualty of war is not someone’s life, but rather it is the truth. The truth of why we are fighting, why we must kill, why the other side is evil, why our government is on the side of good, and why is what we are fighting worth dying for. The truth of all of this is lost because that is the only way the war can be fought in the first place! We must be misled and lied to in order to be mobilize in us the will power to engage in barbaric blood-lust and cruelty onto our fellow human being. Wars are strategized and designed by the ruling class over their own differences in opinion on the way the world is run, or if they are of the same opinion then it is nothing more than a guise to control and manipulate society. Whatever the reason, it is nothing more than a chess match between those in power while using the people as a whole as pawns in a game of death and destruction. Once again, the only way to do this is to lie and confuse the truth so that the masses believe that the war is a must.
To counter this, we must be skeptical of everything we are told, and erase the narrative of our news outlets, and look directly at the facts. If a newspaper speaks of the necessity of war and references a government intelligence report, then skip the article and read the report for yourself. If the intelligence report states they have undeniable sources that a dictator has weapons of mass destruction, but the sources are not given, then you must be skeptical of the report, of the government, and above all the necessity for war. To stop all wars from happening, we must force ourselves to look at the facts as they are and hold those accountable that hold the facts from our eyes. To have peace in the world, we must also hold ourselves accountable to never be mislead, to never willingly believe what we are told, and to convince our fellow neighbors of the facts that are being withheld. The truth is the only thing that can set us free from the tyranny of a ruling class that sees us as nothing more than pawns to throw into horrific and immoral wars.
