Edwin Starr got it absolutely right when he sang this song. The whole point of war is to depopulate the world. At the same time, it can be a useful tool to frighten the people into surrendering their sovereign states. Just ask the Third Reich.
David Icke says that the United States has been continually at war somewhere in the world since 1776, except for a span of 21 years. He never mentioned when that occurred.
They called WWI the “Great War”. It was meant to be the war to end all wars. But they were wrong, of course. (Note the subtitle of the image above: ‘Permanent Picture-Record of the Second Great War’.)
Did you know that a third world war has been in the planning stages since 1871?
Here is the text from a letter reportedly written by Albert Pike to Giuseppe Mazzini:
The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the ‘agentur’ of the ‘Illuminati’ between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion. We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.
Since there was no State of Israel at the time (although that might have been added when it was quoted in a book called Satan, Prince of this World, written by Commander William James Guy Carr in 1959) this makes the letter somewhat suspect, but the concepts contained therein are ‘interesting’, to say the least.
It puts me in mind of what I said about Gurdjieff all those years ago: our fear feeds the unseen ‘angelic/demonic’ forces. Now, doesn’t that make you feel better?
