About me

Violence begets violence. I’m not a pacifist, but I am a peaceful person. There are thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of people working in the arms trade to make the world a more violent place. Some of them know what they are doing and don’t care. Some of them don’t understand what they are doing. Others understand, but have learned to rationalise their behaviour, and live with their contradictions. This is my attempt to counter this element of society and hopefully to do a small part in ramping down armed conflict.

La violence engendre la violence. Je ne suis pas un pacifiste, mais je suis une personne pacifique. Il ya des milliers, voire des centaines de milliers de personnes travaillant dans le commerce des armes pour faire du monde un endroit plus violents. Certains d’entre eux savent ce qu’ils font et ne se soucient pas. Certains d’entre eux ne comprennent pas ce qu’ils font. Les autres à comprendre, mais qui ont appris à rationaliser leur comportement, et vivent avec leurs contradictions. Ceci est ma tentative pour contrer cet élément de la société et nous espérons faire une petite partie de décélération conflit armé.

(Thanks to google translate for this bit, when I checked my translation, the google version seemed much, much more elegant. How did they do?)

    Hello, Raven?

    I was surfing the net researching drones and came across your great site! It seems we share an interest in promoting peace.

    I have a political blog http://www.certaindoubt.net As my last three posts have been on this topic of drones, I thought you might like to check it out. You can also catch my writings on “The Ethical Spectacle” http://www.spectacle.org

    the links in the chain are in no particular order. something, which, would appear to indicate that our economy is anologeous to a dunghill ….. the principle being, leave it alone and something will grow. oh and something has grown!
