Don’t Enlist, But Don’t Just Take My Word For It by Lo
Everyone Has to Practice Nonviolence. Now. by Rev. John Dear
Am not able to see videos on my equipment, but know its something to do with war, on Australian TV a few moments ago I viewed on ABC how several million dollars are being paid to so called terrorists for hostages, as you know the outcome for money not paid is often beheading? my point is, the Western Alliance having resorted to war, violence and fear tactics and of course propaganda, it seems to me the Western response of a threat being violence with a mind set of a recalcitrant and superior ideology is no longer working in terms of increasing a more dangerous world, whilst politicians sit safely on their thrones deciding what? increasing military expenditure? we do no as a enlightened public think this direction is a wise outcome, rather than resolution of more militaristic threats or outcomes it is time to question our world outlook and look elsewhere other than a resolution by violence.
Sorry about you not able to watch videos on your computer. Here’s a very short blurb about it on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_%28miniseries%29
This series was made in 1983, however, most of it is still pertains today, unfortunately. I posted Part 2 several years ago and only recently found the other parts of the series, so decided to post them.
