Instead of watching the Sunday Morning Talk Fest
and the veneration of a religious leader that was ignored,
on the death penalty, on War, and on arms reduction.
It's a BBC production
about "why we fight".
It starts with the goodbye speech from one of my favorite

Now, watch this.
Warning, it will make you want to PUKE,
or slit your wrist, or run for the mountains.
Why do we War?
Well, why are there gang wars?
Because there are gangs.
Why do football teams struggle against one another?
Because there is a football league.
I know this is tautological.
But here goes.
Why do nations War?
Because there are nations.
And why do we allow it?
Because of the way we think.
Man has built in himself images as a fence of security - religious, political, personal. These manifest as symbols, ideas, beliefs. The burden of these images dominates man’s thinking, his relationships, and his daily life. These images are the causes of our problems for they divide man from man. His perception of life is shaped by the concepts already established in his mind.
Obviously what causes war is the desire for power, position, prestige, money; also the disease called nationalism, the worship of a flag; and the disease of organized religion, the worship of a dogma. All these are the causes of war; if you as an individual belong to any of the organized religions, if you are greedy for power, if you are envious, you are bound to produce a society which will result in destruction.
It also causes really bad schlocky videos glorifying the dribble
That is passed off as decent behavior and respectable thinking.
You have to have a powerful myth to convince normal, decent people
To kill and mame innocent people whose only sin is the location
Of their house.
According to Toltec Wisdom,
The human mind is sick because it has a Parasite that steals its vital energy and robs it of joy. The Parasite is all those beliefs that make you suffer. Those beliefs are so strong that years later when you learn new concepts and try to make you own decisions, you find that those beliefs still control your life.
The Parasite spreads like a disease from our grandparents, to our parents, to ourselves, and then we give to our own children. The food for the Parasite is the emotions that come from fear.
Why do we War?
Our hearts are overcome by fear.
And our world becomes a dream of hell.
And the Earthfamily suffers.
