Our Video Game World = Stupid Human Tricks

 There it was on TV. A news clip showing Israel rockets soaring towards drones fired from Iran.  It brought back memories of the 1980s video game Galaga.  The object of that game was to shoot down approaching aircraft.  But, this was not a game.  It is reality.  Modern warfare is at the point that we send rockets and drones at each other.  The intent is the same.  The rocket or drone is expected to cause death and destruction. The same destruction that manned jets and planes brought in past armed conflicts.

This is the best we can do as human beings.  Resolve conflicts via video game techniques.  As with people who use guns to shoot others in a conflict situation, world leaders have decided to use missiles and drones as the upgraded guns of the military.  Both get the same result.  Someone dies or is maimed for life.  If there ever was an art of diplomacy, it seems to be on a long vacation.  Dialogue, discussion, and compromise appear to have left mankind as a skill and technique.  Instead we seek to destroy each other using technology.  Self destructive techniques in a "civilized" world.

My wish is that the nonsensical decisions of so called world "leaders" and the actions of terrorists, domestic and foreign just stay away from me and my family.  I would love to have the ability to put together a group and go visit leaders who instigate wars and acts of terror against people, only because they can.  The horrific actions of these leaders and terrorist needs to be inflicted upon them.  Their evil spirited stupidity impacts us all.  They need to be removed from this planet.  They are not helping us to be able to live spiritual lives devoted to the purpose and lifestyle our Creator wanted us to have on this planet.

Stop the stupid human tricks.  Create your area of solitude and evil.  Leave the rest of us alone.
