Remembrance & Imagining

The hype over the 1st World War really gets under way today being the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the slaughter. We are urged to imagine all kinds of things but let’s imagine something else, let’s imagine all those men, on all sides, were properly informed. Let’s imagine they knew it was all about the vanity and power grabbing of a few royals and aristocrats along with wealthy bankers. Let’s imagine all those millions said NO we will not fight!

War will cease when men (& now women) refuse to fight. Let’s imagine that.

One thought on “Remembrance & Imagining

  1. Convenient time lapse, a century; all those who remember the carnage are dead.
    A bit of hidden history –
