Standing in Blood...

Stefan Molyneux at YouTube - Mr. Molyneux gives a short introduction, reads No Remembrance, No Remorse for the Fallen of Iraq, by John Pilger, posted at on November 15, 2007, then gives his commentary. Emotional. Moving. I recommend watching the entire 23 minutes, but, if you're in a hurry, read the article, and watch the last five minutes of the video, starting at 17:30. [bieser]

Mr. Molyneux's conclusion:

This is the cost of our patriotism. This is the cost of believing in these sick fantasies of states and governments and the virtue of violence in any form, for the roads, for the poor, for the sick, for the old. That is the bait on the hook that breeds war! You can't get state control of education without this kind of genocide. You can't get collective services like roads and sewage and garbage collection without this slaughter, because violence breeds violence. If we say we can point guns at people to help the poor, in the form of income redistribution, if we say that we can point guns at people to help the old, then the guns will be pointed at you, to fund the slaughter.

When you salute the flag, you stand in blood. When you praise the military, you stand in blood. When you praise a politician, when you join a political party, you stand in blood, you wade in blood. When you say, "the government should do this," or "the government should do that," you stand in rising blood, and it is almost covering our mouths by now.
