Veterans Against the War

December 26, 2009

Our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land whose names or policies we don’t understand. The real enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it’s profitable, the insurance companies who deny us health care when it’s profitable, the banks who take away our homes when it’s profitable. Our enemies are not several thousand miles away. They are right here in front of us.

Found at Left I.

    So far in human history every attempt to get a majority of individuals to think first of others rather than of themselves has failed. Why? Because humans are self-centered. They think first of their own survival and prosperity. Obviously,this can–and has–taken many different forms, but the successful indiviudal profits from his/her actions.
