This isnt true. Look at the history of germany or italy. Or for that matter, Poland
Good You BlackSails;
I can't argue The Point.
You may be able to.
What is The Point?
Are the People Fighting?
The People are Running from The Fighting. RIght?
Every effort to Keep Peace for The People should be made.
The Europeans know a great deal about Peace.
Some of The African Nations know, too.
What makes Peace? The People dedicated to Peace make Peace.
I Know It's Tricky!
What!? We have All of Human Knowledge to draw from.
We have experts in Warfare.
We have No Experts in Peace? How can That Be?
oh. Warfare. Are we still buried deep in War?
Remember what Peace was like? I do, Vaguely.
It was a long time ago, for me.
Some of our people have never known Peace.
Talking about Peace is like telling Fairy Tails?
Talking about War is like talking about Computer Games?
How are Things going in The Camp? Does it have a Name, yet?
Mecca 2? Everyone is going There? What is it like?
"Peace Be With You?"
"And; Also With You?"
Do The People Learn how to behave themselves around a bunch of Strangers?
Some Stranger than Others? It is a very Strange situation.
The World has handled this kind of Thing before.
Dear World; Handle it.
When you get all done restoring Peace and Justice to the Middle East
ummm. I would sure like to see the US get a little help.
They don't need anymore Money at The Top.
Some basic service to The Bottom would be Nice.
Some of The People on the Streets and Roadways of the US make the Jordan Refugees look like the Advantaged Class.
Just Politics. Don't take it personally.
Your people are expected to be Independent!
Go! Eat Berries! The Bears do.
There is a bit of a Migration of Humanity through were I am at The Moment.
The Poor People say they are going to a place that is like a Refugee Camp.
It is in The North. When they get there Everything will be OK.
It is so much like talking to refugees. Only there may not be a camp in The North.
Some of these people are using the last reserves of their Strength to get to a place that most likely does not exist.
Pilgrims. Like the Pilgrims of Old. It is difficult for me to talk to these people. I have begun to avoid them.
If I can not be sweet and helpful, Then I should leave them alone. I can not approve of The Migration of The Poor.
What is really Happening? Are these the symptoms of a Great Depression? Well?
How is this different from what the People of the Middle East are going through?
Threats of Bombs? Yes. We have that. On the TV and Internet.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
