DEATH@DESTRUCTION – MURDER@MAYHEM

( opinions )

from the desk

OF GUN-ZILLA

THE WORLD JUST CAN’T SEEM TO GET ENOUGH SLAUGHTER AND BLOODSHED .
THIS PLANET WE CALL HOME HAS HAD A GLUTINOUS APPETITE FOR IT SINCE IT’S CREATION . WITH A SEEMINGLY ENDLESS SUPPLY OF CONFLICT AND HATRED TO FUEL THE NON-STOP VIOLENCE ,
WE EAT IT UP LIKE STARVING DOGS THAT HAVE STUMBLED UPON A FRESH CARCASS IN THE WOODS .

CONTENT TO SIT AT HOME ON OUR WARM COMFORTABLE CHAIRS AND WATCH IT ON TELEVISION OR
READ ABOUT IT IN THE NEWSPAPERS. WE REMAIN NUMB TO THE REALITY OF IT BECAUSE HOLDING A
PIECE OF NEWSPRINT FAILS TO CONVEY ANY REAL SENSE OF SHOCK OR DANGER .

TELEVISION IS EVEN WORSE , DESPITE ALL THE BREAKTHROUGHS IN TECHNOLOGY A TELEVISION WILL
NEVER ALLOW YOU TO SMELL A CHARRED CORPSE OR THE COPPER-LIKE SCENT OF BLOOD IN THE AIR
AFTER INNOCENT CIVILIANS HAVE BEEN MOWED DOWN BY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS FIRE .
CENSORSHIP AND EDITING WILL CONTINUE TO ENSURE THAT YOU NEVER HAVE TO SEE A HUMAN-BEING
AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN DIS-MEMBERED BY MACHETES OR BLOWN TO BIT’S BY EXPLOSIVES .

THEY WON’T SHOW YOU THINGS LIKE THAT BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID THAT YOU JUST MIGHT TURN
OFF THE T.V. IN DISGUST OR REFUSE TO BUY TOMORROWS PAPER .
SOME RECENT HAPPENINGS FOR YOU TO CONSIDER, THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE THIS PAST WEEK :

NIGERIA : SUICIDE BOMBER TARGETS CATHOLIC CHURCH… 7 DEAD… 100 WOUNDED .
BRAZIL : DRIVE BY SHOOTINGS IN SAO PAULO , 28 PEOPLE DEAD IN 4 DAYS .
SYRIA : BROKEN CEASEFIRE ON MUSLIM HOLIDAY , 110 PEOPLE DEAD ON A SUNDAY…AVERAGE CASUALTY
TOLL 100 DEAD PER DAY .
MYANMAR : MUSLIM-BUDDHIST VIOLENCE IN RAKHINE STATE , 84 DEAD…129 INJURED,(WEEKLY AVERAGE).
22,000 PEOPLE ARE FORCED TO FLEE FROM THIER HOME’S .

I HAVE TO ASK THIS QUESTION : WILL WE EVER ADVANCE AS A SPECIES TO A PEACEFULL CO-EXISTANCE
WITH EACH OTHER ? OR ARE WE SIMPLY DOOMED BECAUSE OF OUR SEEMINGLY ENDLESS THIRST FOR
VIOLENCE AND BLOODSHED .
