The Ultimate Peace Plan: World War Three
Warfare continues to be a standard tool in the kits of governments around the world. Obviously the Second World War wasn't catastrophic enough. The lesson wasn't learned.

It's time for a new peace movement, a peace movement for ordinary people who aren't very sophisticated. You won't need self-control to join. Anger is better. Out of control anger is the best. It will allow this mass movement to strike out, giving the push that is needed to get the ball rolling.

This time we'll have a peace movement that is truly broad-based and inclusive. No longer will membership be restricted to impatient people who want to end war immediately. Old-fashioned peace activists want no more war. Others might want two wars. Let's compromise. We'll have one big war, and get it out of our system. If you cannot accept this plan, then you are obviously a very uncompromising person, and probably some kind of fanatic or extremist.

2. How about the following? Have you seen it already too many times?

Heaven from all creatures hides the book of Fate,
All but the page prescribed, their present state:
From brutes what men, from men what spirits know:
Or who could suffer being here below?
The lamb thy riot dooms to bleed to-day,
Had he thy reason, would he skip and play?
Pleased to the last, he crops the flowery food,
And licks the hand just raised to shed his blood.
Oh, blindness to the future! kindly given,
That each may fill the circle, marked by Heaven:
Who sees with equal eye, as God of all,
A hero perish, or a sparrow fall,
Atoms or systems into ruin hurled,
And now a bubble burst, and now a world.

5. The War Party
TWP ran Japan into the ground.
TWP ran USSR into the ground.
TWO is running USA into the ground.

Hey, why not?
