Writing exercise in morality and war

My philosophy exercise is a single writing session where I go with an idea and once I am finished, I post it without rewrites, except to correct spelling.


We cannot pretend to be a morally superior country and people when we allow torture in the name of national defense.

The truth has been in America’s face, but it doesn’t warrant becoming trending news. Or a viral concern.

We pretend to support the Patriots of our country. Yet, no one questions why our soldiers have leaders or orders to commit such crimes?

Where is the swift and stern response from military leaders?

Asleep at the wheel. The wall of freedom is unmanned because the anguish of humanity is dying with the walls.

All in the name of keeping you safe.

And being so safe you ignore that the soldiers you claim to support are imprisoned in a never-ending sentence of combat deployment, the loss of family, the risk to life, limb, and eyesight.

No one questions.

Everyone feels safe. Because hey, they knew what they signed up for.

How much do you know about the life of a military member or family?

Do you know what it is like to have doctor’s intentionally causing pain? Some to the point that the commit suicide.

Feel safe. At least appreciate it. You are paying for it after all.

The world of gamers play in imaginary world’s in which they pretend to believe they are soldiers. Because killing people is cool. I guarantee you never will, nor would I want you to, feel how I feel.

Pay to play on one end and plug and play wars and lives on the other.

The factory of war continues, so focus on the television. Eat your organic GMO-free Cheetos. Drink your conflict free coffee. We would not want to promote conflict. They type on their iPhone and turn off the television.

Focus on everything, but the castle of war.
