    With thousands of years of human history demonstrating that humans are violent and prone to war, why is it so many of you assume that there is no possible way we will ever see war, civil war, or else?

    Nations have risen and fallen for milleniea so why do you think we are somehow the exception to the rule? Why do you think we can ignore the principles of liberty and justice that made us the way we are and instead turn to debauchery, violence, division, and yet somehow remain a people and nation?

    There are so many of you who think it's absolutely insane that we could possibly repeat the same consequences that have happened to others throughout human history?

    Last century alone had countless nations go through brutal holocausts. Mass genocide. Yet you think we are immune from it here and now. Why?

    Other than arrogance, what possible reason is there to believe that we are somehow different than the rest of the human family?

    That is the only conclusion I've reached. But, I admit, I could be wrong. That's precisely why I am asking.

    The last thing I want to see is violence. But when all the signs are around and people are doing nothing but saying it can't happen to us, what other conclusion is there?

    Especially when you have knowledge of the scriptures. It's always when people start saying that it can't happen when it happens and happens in a brutal way.

    Who says we can't possibly see war? I'd like to know. All I see is the construction of a strawman connection between modern culture and war. People living in the past are more prone to starting wars, IMO.

    Because you have individuals who feel they have the right to rule.

    Quite simple. Whether you are looking at an Obama or a Sunstein you must understand this strange "academia" take on how they perceive the world and how they must dominate it.

    In other words, arrogance. You think you are somehow better than our ancestors because you live here and now. Yet you ignore the clear lessons and mistakes they made.
