For whatever reason it was said and whatever context it was said in, rousing people to engage in a civil war just sounds crazy to me — and I find a lot of things crazy these days.
There will never be any good reason to end a life of another and to think that it will prove one side right or another side wrong will just take us back to the time when a duel was recognized as a legal means of settling disputes.
Politics is about deception and all players in politics are necessarily deceivers. As far as deception and being deceived are concerned, there is no sense in quibbling over degrees or magnitude especially when it results in the death of so many. There will be no real ways of assuring that only combatants will be killed, because despite the technological advancements in this s0-called Information Age, bullets and bombs don’t pick who it’ll kill.
The great tragedy in war is not the loss of lives on either side, it is the loss of sanity that results in drinking too deeply from the deceptiveness of our politicians and that loss of sanity infects generations as victors are said to write such histories.
In all likelihood, all that is happening with all this talk about ousting President Aquino or mounting a civil war just shows how weak as a nation we really are and that weakness stems from a lack of faith in our democratic processes. And it is a situation that can easily be taken advantage of.
It’s blood in the water, I sh*t you not.
The right call at this moment, with tensions and tililings running into overdrive, is to chill out and suck it up. Otherwise, we’ll have a more serious situation on our hands.
And if I only knew exactly what could happen if we do lose all of our heads, then preventing it would be a bit easier.
Mathew 5:8″Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9″Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10″Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.…
Thing is, if people insist on calling for a civil war, then they’ll be no better than the people being blamed for the police operation that resulted in the death of 44 PNP SAF.
