Thank you for your thoughts.
Quasi-pacifist, yeah — not tested on the grandest self-defence scales — but how I try to approac all conflict.
Every war I have seen in my time has been pure manufactured madne$$ and however they spin the "good war" stuff for the past ones I am not buying.
Not accepting the "support our troops" and "service to our contry" verbal contaptions really inflames those who live inside the propaganda. But I'm not getting off the soapbox and glad to know you are on yours.
