Remembrance Day was originally intended to remind us of the futility of war. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month marked the time the Armistice was signed at the end of WWI, or, as it was known at the time, The Great War, the war to end all wars. 

Such was the scale of death and suffering 1914-18 it was believed to be inconceivable that nations would again engage in such wasteful and destructive confrontation. In fact, The Great War instead turned out to be only the opening chapter of the most destructive and murderous century in the history of the human race.

War and mass slaughter of Europe’s finest young men became mechanised, industrial, and all-consuming. No longer did armies simply face each other across a battlefield in ordered rows to slog it out until one side was victorious, entire cities and nations would be left in ruins and generation after generation of young men would be wiped out of existence. 

The slogan of Remembrance Day was Lest we Forget, but we did forget. We failed to learn anything, and slowly, the original idea that we should remember all of the fallen, from all sides, military and civilian, was subtly replaced with the idea that instead, we honour only our own.

Deviously, the sacrifices of the past began to be used not to discourage us from war, but to lend legitimacy to new wars, to glorify war and falsely portray cannon fodder as heroes and to thus serve as recruiting sergeants for further wars.

Supported by corporate media, politicians began to plunder the graves of the fallen, men and women already robbed of their lives, to encourage new recruits to their armies and to silence dissenters and brand them as traitors and cowards. 

LEST WE FORGET

WINSTON CHURCHILL “I love this war. I know it’s smashing and shattering the lives of thousands every moment and yet, I can’t help it, I enjoy every second of it.” ~ 1916 in a letter to Lord Asquith’s daughter.

HENRY KISSINGER ‘Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.’  As quoted in Kiss the Boys Goodbye: How the United States Betrayed Its Own POW in Vietnam (1990) by Monika Jensen-Stevenson and William Stevenson.  

RUDYARD KIPLING “If any question why we died, tell them because our fathers lied.”  – Rudyard Kipling 1865 – 1936.

 WWI VETERAN HARRY PATCH “I felt then, as I feel now, that the politicians who took us to war should have been given the guns and told to settle their differences themselves, instead of organising nothing more than legalised mass murder”

FINIAN CUNNINGHAM “War is a profitable business, they say, so much so, it seems, that the US has placed it at the heart of its economy. This is why US politicians and military officials have claimed that Russia poses a threat to their nation and its allies, adding that Washington’s only real enemy is peace.”

FIELD MARSHAL DOUGLAS MACARTHUR “It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.” – Douglas MacArthur.

PETER BOWMAN ‘Battle doesn’t determine who is right. Only who is left. We destroyed fascists, not fascism; men, not ideas. Our triumphs did not serve as evidence that democracy is best for the world any more than Russian victories proved that communism is an ideal system for all mankind.  Only through our peacetime efforts to abolish war and bring a larger measure of freedom and security to all peoples can we reveal to others that we are any better than our defeated opponents.’  ~ Beach Red.

THEY'RE ALL TOGETHER NOW

 
They're all together now,
Their differences are gone,
No longer does it matter,
If they lost or if they won;
Such foolishness is easy led,
For they believed what they had read,
The lies of wicked men.

They share the soil, for which they fought,
As friends they sleep in peace,
I hope they’re as these boys once were,
Before these lambs to fleece,
Were sent to meet their youthful end,
Once enemies but now they’re friends,
They're all together now.

For Those Who Cannot Speak: The Criminal Futility of War

“It is yet another Civilized Power with its banner of the Prince of Peace in one hand and its loot-basket and its butcher-knife in the other.  Is there no salvation for us but to adopt Civilization and lift ourselves down to its level?”   ~ Mark Twain.

  1. A WWI pilot said it best:

    The following passage was written by John MacGavock Grider, Sept. 1918. The passage is a diary written as Lt. Grider was in the latter stages of what was termed “shell shock” in his war and “combat fatigue” or “PTSD” in a later wars. Lt. Grider, a WWI aviator, was shot down in September of 1918, just two months short of the armistice. The passage below is from the book War Birds written in 1927 by Elliot Springs, a squadron mate of Lt. Grider. Such are the caliber of white men Jews have murdered by fomenting internecine, fratricidal wars.

    “War is a horrible thing, a grotesque comedy, and it is so useless. This war won’t prove anything. All we’ll do when we win is substitute one sort of dictator for another. In the meantime we have destroyed our best resources. Human life, the most precious thing in the world, has become the cheapest. After we’ve won this war by drowning the enemy (hun) in our own blood, in five years time the sentimental fools at home will be taking up a collection for this same enemy (hun) that are killing us now, and our fool politicians will be cooking up another good war. Why shouldn’t they? They have to keep the public stirred up to keep their jobs and they don’t have to fight and they can get soft berths for their sons and their friend’s sons. To me the most contemptible cur in the world is the man who lets political influence be used to keep him away from the front, for he lets another man die in his place. The worst thing about this war is that it takes the best; if it lasts long enough, the world will be populated by cowards and weaklings and their children.”

    – The wisdom of age, dead at nineteen

    This is war! The white race is under all-out attack on all fronts
