Why are wars fought?
Don’t be a sucker like I was. I was the most naïve person who ever lived. I believed in social justice. I still do.
But as I say, I was a sucker.
I believed that wars were fought for social justice.
Are wars fought for social justice?
This is the conventional wisdom pervading mainstream media. It exists to delude you into thinking that somebody out there cares.
Let me disabuse you of this notion. Wars are not fought for social justice.
It’s pretty safe to say that no war has ever been fought for social justice.
That includes our Civil War.
Humanity is not noble.
Let me make my case to you so that you can see that what I say is so.
Let’s say that you are leading a massive group of people who want to free the Uighurs in China.
Let’s say that you have 40 million people behind you. I’ll tell you what, let’s sweeten the pot to 300 million people.
What are you going to do to get that war prosecuted?
Well, you would probably lobby the government and its officials. They may even agree with you.
What’s the next step?
Sooner or later, someone’s going to have to ask: What do we stand to gain out of this war?
What’s the point of the war?
The big dweebs in finance will weigh in.
Somebody in New York City is going to be consulted and they are going to want to know what profit it is to the banks who may be loaning money.
What do we stand to gain? What do we stand to lose?
Wars cost money.
You may respond: We will free the Uighurs from injustice.
Do you know how the bankers will respond?
They will laugh in your face. They want to know what profits will accrue to the corporations that are fighting the war. They want to know if we are going to win.
Banks don’t bet on losing propositions.
Big banks bet on winners.
Bankers couldn’t care less about social justice. They care about profits.
This is the reality of humanity.
And it is the bankers and the big corporations that make the decisions to go to war. Regular people don’t make those decisions.
Once you understand this, world events will make sense to you. You will get rid of this idea of events arising from the need to achieve social justice. You will disabuse yourself of the social view of history.
Stay away from the social view of history.
The social view of history says that humanity and civilizations change because of social movements.
The social view history interprets world events in terms of people, their ethnicities, their race, their beliefs.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
You will always be confused about world events if you try to interpret world events in terms of social movements.
You will never be confused about world events if you interpret events in terms of money and profits.
We human beings don’t like to admit that.
We prefer to live behind a façade of nobility.
We are not noble.
We fight wars for money.
We are no different than those tribes that emerged from the woods thousands upon thousands of years ago.
Big movements that pretend to care about social justice are in reality financed by corporations who have a hidden economic agenda.
Movements cost money.
Hitler’s movement in Nazi Germany cost big bucks. It takes a lot of money to pay for uniforms, rallies, officers and organizational efforts.
Hitler’s movement was funded by Wall Street and its German corporate collaborators.
Black Lives Matter is funded by Corporate America.
Don’t be a sucker like I was.
