Using the laws of logic we can easily get out of the war. Before the people demand peace, the people must demand benevolent leadership. As we know, fear of opposing powers, has put us on the offensive, in regards to force. According to Ayn Rand, “men who attempt to survive, not by means of reason, but by means of force, are attempting to survive by way of the animals.” Therefore, when we invade countries, we are becoming animals, to suppress animalistic behavior. People in the military are treated like animals for this very reason…to reprogram them into animals, thus using fire against fire…this an ongoing flaw apparent in all previous administrations. Pavlov’s dog teaches that positive reinforcement can guide animals’ behavior as animals are driven by the pain-pleasure mechanism and are not advanced enough to have a code of values. The pleasure, or the sensation, that drives the military, is promotion, which acts as an incentive to continue, regardless of the lack of value there is in continuing. Man is the only being conscious enough to realize that sensation does not always coincide with value. To divert the soldiers mind from the dehumanizing stratification and subservience, that is required in an effective military, and to prevent recalcitrance in the soldiers, they are paid, which helps to ease the minds of those who feel they are sacrificing their sovereignty for the good of their oppressors, and not for their country. As I said once before, to follow or become subservient to man is to lose ones identity and abdicate ones crown, his sovereignty. Brotherhood implies sovereignty to all individuals. War obstructs this concept of brotherhood, changing those involved to machines or commodities as oppose to equals. A country which practices the virtues of honesty, patience and rationality knows how to keep evil at bay without engaging in force. To suppress hate, one must express love. A war that makes no use of the power of love is a war that knows no end, just as a nation which keeps no value, is a nation which reaches no victory. Peace is the end of war, and the continuation of brotherhood. Peace is the pinnacle of victory. To stop terrorism, one must love the terrorist. To use force, or fire, against force, will only spread more fire, or war. When a government has already resorted to fire, hate, it can no longer extinguish fire, without the use of ice, or love. Once a collectivized group has become fire, it becomes more difficult to become ice, or love, without new leadership which can initially establish itself against the tyranny of majority, the fire. Therefore, Revolution must take place outside of the apparent majority, to transform the majority. Fire, or hate, is less capable of extinguishing fire, or in other words, a perverse organization becomes less capable of reawakening the majority, as animosity is too hard to repel once it inflicts you. Negative people are only capable of spreading negativity. Positive people can change negative people more easily than negative people can change positive people; however, if one is neither positive nor negative, he is more easily swayed by the negativity. It is more difficult to make an optimist a pessimist, if that optimist is sincere, but it is less difficult for a pessimist to bring down those who are neither pessimistic nor optimistic, or the apathetic or the sheep. Those who succumb to fire, or negativity, can ignite more fire, and/or contain fire, but they can not put out the fire. This is why our government needs new leadership. A new force, or new leadership, as long as they don’t resort to fire, which can also mean spiteful, vindictive or contemptuous rhetoric, has the ability to put out the fire, with ice, or love, through the practice of the virtues of honesty, compassion and patience. To shield oneself from the negativity, one must have faith and the ability to reason. Keeping the values of faith and reason and establishing oneself as ice, or love, will prevent the pull of fear and hate and make leadership possible, as hate always empowers love. A government without love is a government without leadership. Fear and hate obstruct rationality, but faith combats both. According to Ayn Rand, “Ethics is an objective metaphysical necessity of man’s survival” Without them, man is more likely to be brought down by what is evil, or more animalistic. This more often then not causes the victim to resort to force, man’s animalistic nature. Resorting to force is an event where one is acting as ones own destroyer. And that is why; the standard of value is life. Man is conscious of value regardless of whether he possesses value or not. Without proper leadership, ones perception of value may be skewed, but nonetheless, to what may be a simple extent, man realizes the fundamental difference between good and evil. To choose to be ignorant of good and evil is to accept death. A complex perception of right and wrong begins to formulate advanced virtues, or etiquette. Complex law brings down the value of the subject. One who keeps good values does not allow complex law, for complex law authorizes the initiation of force, which violates man’s rights, and defies the standard of value and the source of rights, which is man’s life. Meaning, the complexities of law make it harder for one to live, and therefore, are not of good value. Law was created in America to protect freedom. Freedom is the right to live. When a law no longer protects one’s right to live, rather it restricts it, the law itself becomes an obstacle of freedom, which in effect, breaks value, and becomes corruption. When corruption becomes the majority, benevolence is left as the only remedy. Therefore, in democratic ages, when tyranny of the majority has risen, ecclesiastical principality must return, bringing altruism, benevolence, and even the spirit of God as the cure to selfishness and malevolence and polarized politics. To shun or silence the prince, or he who is devoid of corruption is to avoid a solution. To enhance security which invades privacy is to sacrifice value and freedom, for security and protection, which more often than not will bring slavery… War is the slavery brought on by the security, to which the brainwashed perceive as the only means to peace. People don’t necessarily fear peace; they just lack the virtues, such as patience and honesty, to obtain the value, which is peace. In times of peace, it is more difficult to combat fear and hate, for enemies are capricious. This is why faith is required, for with faith, you believe that keeping your values will work, and thus you practice virtue to keep those values, which builds a reputation of integrity as oppose to depravity. Therefore, instead of resorting to force, one must make use of the virtue of patience, and strive for diplomacy, concentrating more on mending the relationship between enemies, without forgetting about allies, or without sacrificing values, for security. I do not wish to take down security, I merely wish to go about diplomacy in a different way, establishing trusts, leading us to a day when we waste less money on war, and spend more money on increasing the happiness of society by raising minimum wage, supplying food where it is scarce, bringing shelter to the homeless, providing universal health care, and rebuilding areas where upgrade is necessary... No Child Left Behind.
