For a moment, a very brief moment, before the actual shooting started...the International Labor Unions almost succeeded in convincing workers that they had far more in common with each other than with the interests of the kings and jackals who ruled over them.
The First World War was fought by the ancestors of the same dysfunctional family they have in Britain today...Queen Victoriaīs brood. The Queen, her son, the Czar, the Kaiser and any number of royal brides...all of one family...all playing chess with the lives of their "own" people. But it barely lasted...before you knew it newspapers were flooded with articles about patriotism and the Fatherland and Motherhood...and millions of peasants and workers went to war to kill each otherīs fathers and sons and rape the mothers and daughters.
Itīs time we felt patriotism for the Earth only....and not till every man and woman is a brother and sister will any of us be safe...and if we escape, those darling babes of ours, or theirs, will pay the price...
What could be more obvious.
