In Memory of Jerry

Before me lies the man I have killed. What did I kill him for?

He lies there dead and gory. What fate had cast him here? Who is he?

Perhaps he, too, like me, has an old mother.

How long will she sit on the doorstep of her squalid little stick shack in the evenings,
looking southward to see whether her beloved son, her breadwinner and worker,

is coming home?

Had I given up all that I loved, all that was dear to me,

had I made this thousands of mile march out here,
suffering from hunger, cold and the blazing heat,

did I lie now here in such agony, merely for the sake of taking that poor man’s life?

What useful objective had I achieved apart from this murder?

His face had gone. It had slid off the bones.

The ghastly skull, fixed in the eternal grin of death,
was more repulsive to me than ever before,

although I had often had occasion to handle skulls and bones.

This skeleton in uniform with shining buttons made me shudder.

That is war, I thought, there is its image.

The frailty of everything revealed at last.

Old and troubling issues resolved into nothingness and night.



By Siegfried Sassoon

I knew a simple soldier boy
Who grinned at life in empty joy,
Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
And whistled early with the lark.

In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
He put a bullet through his brain.
No one spoke of him again.

You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you’ll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.



The Federal “Government”, US, which is operated out of Washington DC, hates the truth.
Truth is not the friend of the US.
Truth is a deadly enemy, to be killed at all cost! One would think that a “government” which claims to derive it’s authority to rule, from the American people, would want the American people well versed in the affairs of State.
But one would be wrong. The US “elite”, wants Americans dumb, stupid, ignorant. Just Smart enough to do the ever downward spiraling menial jobs for less and less pay, servicing the needs, wants and desires, of the Washington “Elite”.

Truth is to the “Elite”, the wooden stake that bloodsuckers fear, the silver bullet which will dispatch the Man-Wolf. Truth is to be feared by the “elite”! Let us examine why that is. Continue reading

A War of Aggression: In Perspective

“The principle, on which the war was waged by the North, was simply this: That men may rightfully be compelled to submit to, and support, a government that they do not want; and that resistance, on their part, makes them traitors and criminals.
No principle, that is possible to be named, can be more self-evidently false than this; or more self-evidently fatal to all political freedom. Yet it triumphed in the field, and is now assumed to be established. If it really be established, the number of slaves, instead of having been diminished by the war, has been greatly increased; for a man, thus subjected to a government that he does not want, is a slave.”

– Lysander Spooner


“Can we whip the South? If we can, our numerical majority has the constitutional right to govern. If we cannot whip them, they contend for the natural right to select their own government. To keep that from happening – to insure that Southerners do not have the right to select their own government – we will remove and destroy every obstacle – if need be, take every life, every acre of land, every particle of property, everything that to us seems proper.”

– William Tecumseh Sherman
