“War is at best barbarism…Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot, nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation”
-General William T. Sherman

At its core, the American Revolution was about decentralization. Thomas Jefferson believed Americans should limit federal power by dividing it between state and local governments. King George III argued that centralized power would most effectively serve the colonies. He also advocated for slavery.

The dichotomy in nature that provides our biology with an evolutionary advantage makes for The New World Order™. Hot or cold, light or dark, 0’s or 1’s, right or wrong, good or evil, centralized or decentralized.

Scarcity (what we lack) vs. abundance (what we have) creates centralized “me first” environments out of a need to survive, which is contrary to the decentralized “we the people” environments out of the desire to thrive.

As technology evolves according to the input we prescribe, we can not afford to repeat past mistakes. Emotional intelligence is the fundamental pillar of quality of life, and Non-violence is the only way to progress.

The voice of Benjamin Franklin echoes clearly in the minds of those willing to listen.
