how it is so insane

How it is so insane There is a hardening of empathy in the blood vessels of the Western world has peace lasted too long, if we regard bloodletting as a natural cycle like the seasons and now it is blue frost winter in the heart of man. We have always been killing each other, the USA was born by eradicating the local population and indeed in Latin America, the conquistadors killed 90% of its people and now we have Israel repeating the long history of murder; not to forget the Rohingya people escaping being slain by Buddhists in Myanmar. Now we see a crescendo of mass eradication of plants and animals, the very foundation of human life it is as we are at war with self, committing suicide in our quest to dominate others and thereby us. There will be no place to hide whether we live in a castle or in a cave when the world is red-hot bullet hurtling through space, and there will be no history to tell.
