art of war - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
"The 'art of war' without an active and determined policy of bringing global fairness and good health to all is a spiral stairwell to hell; we need the science of peace."
Every human has evolved from genocidal ancestors. We are all the descendants of the survivors of war. Thus, it is logical that we should have evolved to form armies and to make an "art" of war - to have much of our thought capital and resource capital tied up with our defence systems. Absolutely every ethnicity is included in this statement. Everyone has evil war-monger ancestors. The good news however, is that we have have been the beneficiaries, globally in different ways, of divine inspiration for generations. We have cultures with faiths that pull us toward love and cooperation. The very same mental apparatus that can bring the sort of cooperation needed to build an army of war can build an army of peace. The way we collaborate to build bombs can be a way we collaborate to distribute food and medicine. We can together learn how to flip this script of the ages and allow our soldiers to perfect the art of peace.
God can only favour they who, even in their continuation of their "art of war" machinery, make a full commitment to bring peace and prosperity globally without fear or favour. Then you will see real divine interventions, for God brings help to those who promote love. He cannot favour those who say they love in words and bring death, destruction and pollution via their deeds. It is insufficient to become the mirror of your enemy and assume you are good, because the mirror image of evil is evil. Until you learn to make your cultural philosophy from a first principle of love (and know what love really is) then your "art of war" is nothing but a circus of fools.
"All the art of war has brought us is every more proficient ways to 'rape and pillage' and look noble as we do it - perhaps it is time to give real consideration to the art and science of peace."
