Faded Frenzies now Peace, maybe even Joy
It's amazing what we as a society will do for the commercial version of peace and joy. We go to battle on the streets, row after row of armies of tanks, and other assault vehicles, in the trenches and aisles, fully equipped with plastic power launchers, that go ballistic. Modern day weapons can wipe out 100s of Hiroshimas in one bomb, and society's very generous giving to the annual stimulus for our own economy is enough to wipe out hunger in many Hiroshimas and countries in the world. Oh the power we have to do bad, but also good, in the world... if we more seriously wanted to.
