Enough, Already! Taking sides in inter-State violence is dysfunctional.


Let's have some honesty here, before it all goes silly.

The dynamic known as competing militarised powers is a human, social, societal ecological pathology. The institutionalisation of what amounts to lethal bullying has be to be seen for what it really is.Lethal bullying. Inappropriate behaviour. Harm causing behaviour. A social disease.

Taking sides within that dynamic, absent any formal recognition, let alone a diagnosis, of that state merely perpetuates the dynamic. 

Such people cannot ever bring peace or resolve the situation because they perpetuate it.

"One cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it."
A. Einstein.

It is a matter of logic. 

It's a priori stuff.

Taking sides in an environment of organised violence is insane. 

It's not healthy.

Cease taking sides, and start confronting the truth of the situation.

The existing system of competing militarised powers is unhealthy, it is harm causing on a massive scale.

The evidence is in, and it is well understood, and the adverse outcomes, the harms are clear to all.

It amounts to institutionalised bullying.

Call it out for what it is, do not be terrified of it.

Name the behaviour.

Name it.Coldly, technically, clearly, without ad hominem, evidence based

The rest is wasted time, wasted effort if the system of competing militarised continues to be perpetuated.

Grow up, let us do!
