War and Revolution

War is when we are mislead to believe that the enemy are a people abroad with no relation to us, people of different cultures which we have little to no understanding of. They prey on our fears in order to brew hatred for us to fight against them, out of so-called patriotism. The people are mislead in this, they are given weapons to kill those they are told are the enemy, yet, they do not realize the reason why others are firing back, why the population does not welcome them and they find themselves within their own world where it is isolated from the outside world. In this world, they view themselves as the liberators — destined to help to maintain “peace” or that they are part of a global war against something like “terror.” When time goes on, the realization as to why they are fighting tends to increase and they become aware of the hatred of occupational forces and the morale of the soldiers abroad decreases, as particularly with the length of the war — the coverage and care about it by the population shrinks. 

Revolution is when we realize our discontent that has been bottled up inside of us. Like with war, we realize the government does not serve us and serves it’s own economic and geo-political interests. It serves these interests first and foremost while in our daily lives in our communities our living conditions drop lower and lower, education is cut and spending to things such as the military are increased, instead we are told to live with these things. When it is all bottled up and the people are sick and tired of the abuses that have given to them, revolution arises and the people demand what has belonged to them in the first place.

    “Revolution is war. Of all the wars known in his tory it is the only lawful, rightful, just, and truly great war. This war is not waged in the selfish interests of a handful of rulers and exploiters, like any and all other wars, but in the interests of the masses of the people against the tyrants, in the interests of the toiling and exploited millions upon millions against despotism and violence.” – Lenin
