all

the war against life, wizards of ozymandias, butler shaffer.
We must understand all of politics – no matter in what nation it is practiced – as a system that wars against the very nature of life. Politics cannot be eliminated by force – for to do so would only imply an even mightier amassing of power than what is in place. Neither can it be reformed, the effort to do so being as absurd as trying to practice a peaceful form of warfare, or a humane system of tyranny. It can only be transcended, a process that can only begin by each of us ending the divisions and fears that our political masters have carefully conditioned us to accept. When we discover peace and order within ourselves, we shall then withdraw our energies from the sanctified hostilities and confusion that are destroying life.
