Last Words to Our Young Ones Old Enough to Hear Hard Thoughts from an Old Teacher Who Has Seen War
These instigators are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Pestilence, Famine, and Death; and some also maintain that they are the Antichrist.
They are cannibals; they devour the souls, the hearts, and the minds of the young and the innocent.
They use words like honor, freedom, protecting the nation, the godless enemy, democracy, patriotism, liberty, peace, terrorist or enemy to confuse the well-meaning, to beguile the unthinking, and to abuse the trust of us all. Learn from history how these words drip from the tongues of scoundrels. When needed, learn how to unspin the “Newspeak” embedded in these Orwellian verbal concoctions of deceit into their true meanings. Understand how they use honor to mean dishonor; freedom to mean despotism; protecting the nation to mean putting the nation at risk; the godless enemy to mean the men, women, children, and infants marked for the slaughter; patriotism to mean crime in the name of the flag; liberty to mean oppression and slavery; peace to mean war and fighting terrorists to mean summoning up more and more terrorists to mortally threaten the homeland and ensure the forever war. Learn how the users of these words always maintain a safe personal distance from the Hell they conjure up, how they always offer up the children of other fathers and mothers to the sacrifice. Smell the essential moral rot of their cowardice and the blood on their hands.
They are the real enemy. They live in the White House. They wear uniforms with five, four, three, or two stars, or one; they are draped with absurdly pretty and colorful ribbons. Some wear more gold than others, and, consequently, have more kill authority. Some wear suits and ties, and no gold, but, instead, little lapel flags; they wear well-polished shoes with dark silk hosiery. Their kill authority is immense, historically unprecedented. They all believe in the medieval practice of torture. They all believe the rule of law is quaint. They have ill-begotten titles like Commander-in-Chief, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, Attorney General. They are the true engineers and authors, the true begetters of wars, torture, and terrorism against the peoples of the earth. They are the assassins of history’s will and demand for real democracy, real freedom, and real liberty.
They thrive on the death and the blood of the innocent: fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, grandpas and grandmas, and our dear little ones, all of whose faces they won’t see, whose names they won’t hear and whose sacred being they so summarily dismiss.
If you do not carefully attend to their machinations, their kidnappers will beguile you into a machine of murder and rapine, a hyper-gangster, nation drive-by machine. You may dishonor your soul and spirit and sadden your loved ones if you succumb to these kidnappers’ lures and temptations and outrageous lies
For the love of your life, for the love of your own people and for the love of the peoples of the earth, Run! Do not look back! Escape these madmen, these monstrous, maniacal haters and violators of life!
Remember, if these Hell Hounds catch or capture you in their nefarious nets
of death and deceit and deliver you to their prison house of horrors, broken
spirits, and lost souls, we will ever be here to remember you and to hold you
in our hearts, your faces, your voices, and your names. Our every effort will
be to rescue you and deliver you safely into the arms of the ones who begot
and love you and to return you to your Beloved Community, your home and to all
those who will never cease longing for your most speedy return.

“ We must make clear to the Germans that the wrong for which
their fallen leaders are on trial is not that they lost the war, but that they
started it. And we must not allow ourselves to be drawn into a trial of the
causes of the war for our position is that no grievances or policies will
justify resort to aggressive war. It is utterly renounced and condemned as an
instrument of policy. ”
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, U.S. representative to the International Conference on Military Trials, August 12, 1945
