Everyone Talks About World War I, But No One Does Anything About It

by Joe Scarry

Saturday was the hundredth anniversary of the assassination that marks the beginning of World War I, and predictably the media was full of coverage. The stories will probably continue for the next four years, straight through until the 11th day of the 11th month of 2018, when we will mark the hundredth anniversary of the WWI armistice.

It’s a full employment act for the journalists. And everyone will be reading and talking about WWI.

But have you ever wondered . . . instead of just tsk-tsking about “The Great War,” why doesn’t anyone actually seize the occasion to try to put a stop to future wars?

“I’ve had enough of war.”
Have you?

A new campaign has been launched to build mass opposition to the institution of war. Unsurprisingly, almost no one is really for war. So the challenge now is get the “silent majority” who oppose war to come out of the closet.

Check out the World Beyond War video and support the effort.

Don’t just talk about war without end. Do something about it.
