War

“What is it good for?”

Listening to Edwin Starr, driving down the road, and just thinking about how true this song is.

“What is it good for?”

“ABSOLUTELY!”

“nothin’”

“Good god yal!”

Edwin said it right.

Then it brought me to a question in my own head, a realization rather.

Go to war, interfere, cause pain. It’s assault. Pure assault.

Attack someone on the street, interfere, cause pain, it’s assault. Purely assault.

The difference is conviction.

Still war isn’t prosecuted for assault.

Still war is claimed as a fight for freedom.

When it’s really just a fight for meaningless power, wealth, and greedy gain.

What’s it good for?
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
