WWIToday many countries (mostly in the West) commemorate (we can't say celebrate because this would be politically incorrect) the end of WWI which ended on Nov 11, 1918 only 96 years ago. They also "remember" the beginning of WWI, which started on 28 July 1914.

Today is a strange day, a day in which to have different views of an event is to be a traitor of sorts. To have and independent mind is to "insult" those "brave" fighters. To look at war not through the eyes of history or politics or morality is to be incapable of understanding it.

We choose to speak up, not because it is easy but because it is hard. The most important lessons demand the higher prices and the WWI lesson was paid in blood; 16 million dead and 20 million wounded.

Does it really matter on which side? Of course not.

The only thing that matters are the culprits, on both sides.

Do you think that all those dead, wounded and fighting people did so because of country, honour or some sort of stupid higher-power excuse? Of course not.

They fought for the very same reasons we fight today. To defend what is ours. To defend our friends and because we are frightened.

The ones that started it all did not, however.

As so the only question that remains is this:

Why?

Not the historical why: Why did the war start? Not that one but the other one.

Why did they have to fight at all?

But in order to answer this question, we need to look deeper.

Where did this need to fight originated in? Who started it all?

We know that once the propaganda machine began to work, most soldiers enlisted because they were sold the idea of country and honour. But who started the machine. Whose finger was on the button?

Answer: Politicians.

Let's repeat this again.

Politicians.

And again.

Politicians.

High level military politicians and civilian politicians wanted war. The royalty did not want war. The people did not want war. The regular armies did not want war.

But if all these people did not want war, who decided? Who pushed the button and why?

And why did they do so? Because of hubris. Because they wanted glory. No, don't trust us. Do the historical research yourself.

All those 16 million people and 20 million wounded owe their deaths and suffering to a tiny group of people.

We are here to warn you about them.

And this lesson is far too expensive to be wasted.

They paid in blood so that you may recognize the real enemy, no matter where you live and no matter who you are. We, us, we are the people. They, them, they are our real enemies. The biggest tragedy of it all is that anyone of us can become them. The only real solution is not to get rid of them but to get rid of the system that nurtured and enabled them to do then what they are also doing to us today.

The only way to eliminate wars is to eliminate governments. F&P

If you want to dedicate your life to a really worthy cause, this is it. Right there. All around you. Everywhere you go. No excuses. No delays.

Else all those who paid in blood paid for nothing.

Your choice.
