Haven't learned

Men have been trying to change the world by violence, war and terror for thousands of years now, and the only changes have been bad ones—which they just go on repeating war after war, year after year, century after century. You'd think they'd be ready to try love by now, since nothing else has worked!

But, sad to say, people just don't seem to learn from history—or I should say the men who have run nations, kingdoms and empires haven't learned. If they'd had more women running things, they might have had more success. Women know how many years it takes to nurture and teach and raise a child, and are generally much more reluctant to send that child off to some stupid, pointless, vainglorious war where he'll wind up wounded or dead!

So make love and spread love and vote for love, not war! Love is creative and of the Lord, whereas war is destructive because they're not the Lord's wars, nor do they serve his purposes. They only kill and maim and destroy and leave anger and bitterness in their wake.
