Here’s How to Take Part in the ‘Gentle Revolution’ (Part 3)

As every good general knows, the key to a successful campaign is to so weaken the opponent so “he” is no longer able to fight. In our war, there are so few opponents (approx. 7000 of us per opponent) that they would have no chance whatsoever to maintain their dictatorship if we acted in unison. Their principle weapon is guilt, blaming & debt, which they brandish so effectively by fomenting fights among us facilitated by the media they control.

70 Years Later, We Still Haven’t Apologized for Bombing Japan

Here we are, 70 years after the nuclear obliteration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki & not one step closer to a moral reckoning with our status as the world’s only country to use atomic weapons to slaughter human beings.
