A war on terror is a war on a word, a concept, an invisible entity that we can never truly kill. It represents a shift in war mentality. In recent history war has taken an us versus them perspective, where group A loves or needs X and group B hates or has X so A and B fight. Now, we fight words, and as a result we’ve personalized and individualized war. A war on terror is in essence a war of one against a feeling.
For seven years we’ve fought against this word, “terror”, yet people are still terrified. They doubt the resiliency of our economy. They distrust our “elected” leaders. They wonder if they can afford to put food on the table. Seven years have passed and terror is still kicking our butts, and will continue to do so, for we cannot kill a word.
There is only one way to end this war and it starts with you. It starts here. Are you ready to end the world on terror? Gather up your courage, clear your throat, stretch your fingers and shout or type it as loud you can:
I am not terrified!
- I am not terrified of dying.
- I am not terrified of Muslims.
- I am not terrified of peace.
- I am not terrified of the federal government of these United States of America.
- I am not terrified that our elections are either greatly mismanaged or more realistically fraudulent.
- I am not terrified that artificial people called corporations roam our lands and rape people’s wallets and health for the pursuit of the lowly dollar.
It is an event that will meet all of us soon. Rich, poor, old, young, athletic, obese, smart, stupid, good and evil, all of us will one day die. I speed through the streets of Greater Boston on my bicycle without fear of death. It makes me a better cyclist, as I do not hesitate to move.
They are a people. There are over 1.5 billion Muslims in this world. Some of them are evil; some of them are not. Most of them are average people like you and me.
If need be, the fifty states of the union can and will exercise their rights to sovereignty.
My vote will be published on this blog. It may not be counted but it will be recorded.
Consumerism is a dying artificial (d)evolution and is already experiencing the last struggles before its’ ultimate death.
Most importantly, I am simply not terrified.
The only way to end this war on words is with words. Declare you are not terrified and join me in a world without wars on words.
As of now, for me, the war on terror is over!
