Chief chaos you are either ,a fool ,or simply trying to defend the indefensible.
Little Hawk and Guest have spent time posting lucid and reasoned arguments. Your attempts to respond,carry no conviction and come across as an emotional mish mash,containing little reason.
It always seems pathetic to me ,when people on the right, fall back on the flag and the war dead to justify your support of a system which care nothing for human life and happiness,but instead money is the God which rules all.
My own Grandfather fought and survived in WW1,but he saw the butchery,
he saw the simple young men who did not even know why they were there to be slaughtered.
When he arrived back to Scotland,he made a promise to my grandmother that not one of our family would ever take up arms ,in defense of king, country,flag, or any other lie the bastards come up with.
It gives me great pleasure to think that the young people of today know enough about our politicians,not to die for them.....Ake
