Prevention needs us proactive and not with a wait-and-see approach
What is needed for a war to become global? The Iran-Iraq War never went global because nobody cared who’d win. To turn into a wide-world conflict, everybody needs to care. Do we have that? Yes, unfortunately.
On the one side stand those for democracy, equality, and human rights, including real protection for Jews. More than for freedom, the Free West stands for respect for and love of life. It’s a bit weakened by capitalism.
On the other side stand dictators, autocrats, fundamentalists, extremists, and Jew haters. They really long for world control, honor, and martyrdom. They are blind to individual freedom, respecting diversity, and valuing life.
The catalysts, like in every modern war, are the big capitalists. Wars balloon their coffers twice: by 1. selling weapons and 2. rebuilding what was destroyed. They feel short of cash now colonialism has fallen away. Ignoring climate extinction still doesn’t make them feel financially safe.
A world war needs sticky themes, binding many nations to one side or the other. Here, they are democracy and Jews against popularism and tyrants.
I find it a bad omen that, again, the world’s nations unite in an enormous majority not to stand with the Jews, and a couple of Allied forces do.
Very unhelpful are the fools not believing in this world. They love global chaos and destruction because they believe that will bring Redemption.
We could all live in Paradise on Earth, though it’s easier to rot in Hell here. We all could choose life, strengthen democracy, equality, and human rights, including real protection for Jews, and fight defeatists and nihilists.
I’m unsure if enough people will stand up to have us come out OK. Yet, since only democrats and activists are hopeful, Paradise depends on us.
Will you decide today to donate much of your free time to activism, or are you ready to give up? What a waste to stand on the wrong side of history with no one to survive to write about it. How unsatisfactory and unfit.
