ON WAR AND VIOLENCE

What about 'violence' that is associated with war always? Violence is the illegitimate daughter of the blind Anger' born to the spineless 'frustration'. It first woos and ,weds the motionless 'Helplessness' armoring him with babbling tongue and boneless threats, as dowry.  The Armour instead of protecting, crushes him to the pieces. Thus, it brings ruination to her paramour. Widowed thus, it sets its amorous eyes on the unscrupulous, and heartless 'cruelty' and wins him by its spectacular powers. The savage cruelty when enthroned by the assistance of violence, fills the world with blood, wrought by wars or rebellions, not knowing that the blood he spilled cries for his own blood. Violence that leads to bloodshed, fails miserably both in the world here, and the one above. As long as it stays in this world, it gains nothing but notoriety. Hence it should be  castigated, or better cast off as slough to make the body pure and the indwelling soul adorable. Violence  never defeats violence but it merely begets it.

Wars and violence solve no problem. Their destructive powers, no doubt annihilate millions of people in a wink. Certainly, they never rain 'manna' for whom they are intended.
