Intervening on the Build-up of War: 2nd part of talk with a fascist (?) cousin (tags)
My cousin could be equated with a mid-level military officer in his local influence (of young men) and his technique of speaking with me, whom he shares some basic prohibited enjoyments (i.e. smoking pot). He may be involved in the fascist underground and that would seem likely given his penchance for this topic and his connections (i.e. with his brother who is a well-known east coast agitator against jews). Whatever he is doing, I saw a chance to not only possibly intervene directly into someone who is attempting to justify and rationalize his beliefs, but also share (and seek input) this with people like yourself whom may be inspired in your own activity.
Banking on Our Ignorance: A holocaust denier is taken on by his cousin (tags)
The more ignorant or unfamiliar you are with and about statecraft, the easier people who want to perpetuate war can manipulate you. So committments to war or peace or radical sanity take form, and an intensifying radical's radical dialogue "becomes" between two persons who like each other at face value (and some years of background history). This communication may be instructive for those who want to better understand aggression and its rationalizations in order to ju-jitsu the worst of what happens when beliefs are allowed to bear the ugly fruits of perpetual war.
