Is Another World Possible Again

And so here goes another one of those recycle this blog posts that found itself on this blog some time a while ago in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible. And even though the times and dates may have changed, the story still seems to remain the same.

And the headlines are there again. Another person loses their life to gun violence for whatever reason for no reason at all except that guns and gunpowder have been invented. The story has been told in the headlines before and the story will be told again in tomorrows headlines with no end in sight. Gun violence is a global epidemic these days. Is it possible to have a world free of guns. Again, I could cut and paste my other blog entries over and over in my appeal to banish guns from every human being on the face of planet earth, and to banish the images of guns in every form of advertisement and media campaign on planet earth. Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. If only it was possible to go back in time before guns existed. What was life like before the invention of guns. Were there only sticks and stones. Is this an invention of the beast, whoever or whatever the beast may be. How is it that every other film and movie advertisement in the newspapers and on posters plastered around town has an image of a gun in it. It almost seems as if this type of advertising is required and mandatory these days. How has the morals and values of society declined so far as to where it is now acceptable to use violent imagery and references to violence as a means of promotion. Is this programming programming society. Does this not reflect on and influence society and culture. It seems as if the standards of social behavior are declining everywhere. Is there a worldwide moral breakdown? In the past blatant immorality and decadence has been pointed to as a contributing factor in the fall of civilizations. Where is this social decline pattern coming from? Are the slaughters of wars debasing the value of human life? If politicians and generals can treat millions under their care like animals dispatched to the slaughter, then what canons of religion or ethics can inhibit men from treating each other with the ferocity of jungle beasts. Will the beast, whoever or whatever it may be ever release its grip on mankind. It is not the year 1800 anymore. Will the war ever end. Where can one turn. Where is the world headed. Is another world possible. And what does this have to do with a No Police State. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.
