Stop the War – the song – what is its true message?
This is not about the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Viet Nam, Korea, WWI, or WWII, but all the wars of society, past, present and future. Our society is at war with itself everyday, 24 by 7. We see the kidnapping, molesting, beating, lying, cheating, hating, political and religious betrayal, adultery, gangs, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, etc. as problems in our every day lives when what they really are is the all the ways that we have declared war on ourselves. We are not comfortable unless we are fighting with someone. If there is nothing to fight about, we make a reason to. Until we as humans recognize that the war is not outside but inside of us, and until we fix our insides we cannot fix the outside. For any kind of fight is a war, for war is nothing but the inside bad feelings that we can’t control that lead to our outside bad dealings.
