The Lie: War Can Solve Any Problem


War always, always leads in one of two directions: more war or total annihilation. If you need examples, look at history. You'll find nothing could be more true. War does not solve anything! It only brings death and destruction.

What this sign fails to note is the fact that war does not change the heart of the oppressor. It cannot make the heart of the slaveholder change and view his former slave as a neighbor. It fails to give the dictator the ability to treat his people lovingly. It does not change a the perpetuators of a system that attempts to control all levels of life, into allowing its followers the freedom that each has been created to have.

So while the creator of this sign obviously has gone to great expense and creatively put together a beautiful sign, I must disagree with him.

What about you?
