This might not come as news to many of you but for me it’s been an epiphany.
There is the school of thought that argues fight fire with fire, be tough and get results. The more i see the probelms of this world the more i am convinced that this is a flawed logic.
The war on drugs – Being tough or brutal with drug traffickers has only led to tougher and more brutal drug traffickers.
The war on extremist ideals – The harsher the world got with extremists the harsher the extremists got.
It is naive to think that people will not fight back. They will.
It is even more naive to think that you have superior fire power or smarter soldiers who will win you the war. There is no superior warrior race.. every empire has crumbled. The only solution I see is inclusiveness and adaptability.
