WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THE WEAPONS OF WAR?

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, August 4, 2022, In : Knowledge/Wisdom 

GIVE a person a pen and a new author emerges. But give a person a gun or a nation the weapons of war, and what does one do with it? Safekeep it. Then, after a time, practice with it. Once trained, deploy it. When the opportunity presents, use it. One of the most dangerous aspects of weaponizing is the compelling pull to use it for what it was created. To kill.
