Should we stop using war as population culling of our young people?
For most of our Godless history, governments and religions have used war to reduce the population of their unruly men and women. This is understandable for those times, as tribes, governments and religions would have wanted to reduce the overrepresented male numbers, as compared to much fewer female numbers. Population balance, unfortunately, was required.
Ancient tough love from the Gods.
Modern wars seem to be designed to continue that vile policy.
Should we ask our political and oligarchic masters to stop wasting our young people with ancient ways?
If we are not to change our ways, cull the old. We are living too long, and the joys are fewer, as we watch the young be buried before the old. The opposite of what nature wants to see.
Culling the old is the moral thing to do. Our ways of culling the young are not natural.
