war

A Quote by George Orwell on orwell, 1984, war, politics, government, society, and control

The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact.

A Quote by George Orwell on orwell, 1984, war, politics, government, society, and control

War, it will be seen, accomplishes the necessary destruction, but accomplishes it in a psychologically acceptable way. In principle it would be quite simple to waste the surplus labour of the world by building temples and pyramids, by digging holes and filling them up again, or even by producing vast quantities of goods and then setting fire to them. But this would provide only the economic and not the emotional basis for a hierarchical society. What is concerned here is not the morale of masses, whose attitude is unimportant so long as they are kept steadily at work, but the morale of the Party itself.

A Quote by Byron Katie on war, thoughts, olympics, war driven thoughts, youth, nations, and youth of the world

"As we watch the world embrace the Olympics in the coming days,
let us remember why the modern Olympics came into being:
to bring nations closer together, to have the youth of the world
compete in sports, rather than fight in war.

As long as we believe our own war-driven thoughts, there will
always be war, in ourselves, in our families, and in our world.

As long as we believe our thoughts, there will always be war. "

Byron Katie

The single clenched fist lifted and ready,
     Or the open asking hand held out and waiting.
               Choose:
     For we meet by one or the other.
