War is an acronym for "We Are Right." Nobody wins a war, there are just lesser losers. The children are the biggest losers in a war. Today, there is war around the globe. Some you hear about and some you don't. If a child survives a war until it is a young adult, the child is called into service, sent into battle and killed. Those who do survive today's wars come out broken, with more labels consisting of labels. PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. If a country is going to send it's young men and women off to war to get most of them killed and the rest of them permanently damaged with PTSD, why don't the people of the world get smart and ban war? War is bad for children and other living things.
There used to be hundreds of types of corn. I would go to the county fair and see corn of all colors and sizes. We had yellow corn at the table, but I wanted to taste the other corn, the red corn, the black corn, the golden corn. But now Monsanto has given us one strain of yellow corn. If someone grows something else, Monsanto lets their corn blow into the neighboring fields and then sue them to take over their farms. Then Monsanto becomes larger and grows more yellow corn. There are countries that will not allow genetically altered foods to be grown within their borders. Maybe I'll get born there. That could be nice. Or maybe not.
There are places, I'm sure that there are places in the USA as well as the rest of the world, where children toil in sweat shops, where eleven-year-old children are forced to marry, where slave labor begins early in life. In China, little children work to make electronics that rich, American children simply must have or they throw a fit. In many countries, girls and women are not allowed education. There are places where famine and disease are the rule, not the exception. The millions spent to elect a politician, spent to throw a party for a useless celebrity, spent on mind-altering drugs, would be much better spent wiping out disease, hunger and abuse of people around the world.
