Kung fu Politics and crime are the same thing

Kung fu

Politics and crime are the same thing. About the quote : This line is spoken by Al Pacinos character in the Francis Ford Coppola film The Godfather: Part III, script by Coppola and Mario Puzo. Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. Follow not the person carrying flag nor sword, for they will invariably lead you to a cliff and a mighty fall. The enormous gap between what US leaders do in the world and what Americans think their leaders are doing is one of the great propaganda accomplishments. To kill a man is not to defend a doctrine, but to kill a man. One day the end of the world will come as a result of a justified war. An empire founded by war has to maintain itself by war. If you want to make peace, you dont talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies. The State thrives on war unless, of course, it is defeated and crushed expands on it, glories in it. All government wars are unjust. It is in war that the State really comes into its own: swelling in power, in number, in pride, in absolute dominion over the economy and the society. very nature of interstate war puts innocent civilians into great jeopardy, especially with modern technology. War is the business of barbarians. In the eyes of empire builders men are not men but instruments. There are only two powers in the kung fu the sword and the mind. In the long run, the sword is always defeated by the mind. About the quote : Bonaparte 1769-1821 was a French Emperor. quote from The Anti-War Quote Book, edited Eric Groves, Sr. , pub. Quirk Books, 2008 War grows out of the desire of the individual to gain advantage at the expense of his fellow man. If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner. Let us become inspired by inherent beauty, and not impassioned by manufactured hate. Nima Shirali, Middle Eastern Reconciliation Forum Let us form a new religion, that which would be called humanity, with peace as its prophet. Nima Shirali, Middle Eastern Reconciliation Forum Its very common for the victims to understand a system better than the people who are holding the stick. There are many terrorist states in the world, but the United States is unusual in that it is officially committed to international terrorism. About the quote : from his book Necessary Illusions p. 270 To some degree it matters whos in office, but it matters more how much pressure theyre under from the public. Everybodys worried about stopping terrorism. Well, theres a really easy way: stop participating in it. You never need an argument against the use of violence, kung fu need an argument for it. The only security for the American people today, or for any people, is to be found through the control of force rather than the use of force. Where is the indignation about the fact that the US and USSR have thirty thousand pounds of destructive force for every human being in the world? To initiate a war of the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole. Some explanations of a crime are not explanations: theyre part of the crime. It is finer to bring one noble human being into the world and rear it to kill ten thousand.
