Peace WILL prevail!!! by peacenik on 2003-02-15 15:43:16

You have to actually believe it, see it, think it, breathe it, smell it, envision it -- none of this MAYBE or we 'HOPE' shit! -- Peace EXISTS -- it's here NOW. So let's claim it. Go out and get yourself some, no, a whole lot! -- oh, and pass it around...

  oops! -- that Peace will prevail is weak and speaks of something yet to come. What I mean to say is this: PEACE DOTH PREVAIL!!!

  Couldn't you just have 'Peace prevails' and tackle past, present and future? Doth implies that it is ALREADY in the state of having prevailed, something that, as you can see, is not the case.

Peace MUST prevail. by Kid on 2003-04-30 14:48:38  |  Reply to this
  I'm (as you know) recycling old topics, and this one came up smelling not-so-much of roses, but smelling, and I thought it was about time we had another 'We like peace' charade.

I don't see that anyone can disagree with the principle...

  -- bit of a snit-fit Kidlet? Pray tell, why do you think Peace is a charade? (all your missives seem angry today) Have a bath and a cup o' tea... There, that's better then?

  No - I don't mean (didn't mean) that peace is a charade; it would be difficult to act out(1) - just the way everyone suddenly came in thinking it was a new spanking idea. The general public had ever really supported peace before this last conflict, and it seemed odd, to me certainly, that they were behind it all the way.

Until the war started that is. Then the 60?% who were anti-war dissipated into a 40% to 19% way of thinking that war was the answer. I recite these figures from vague memory, the point remains the same. The public were anti-war until the very first day, when they became pro-war. Odd. Do they not see that they can be behind the troops but against the war. I'd recommend Siegfried Sassoon, but I fear I would go unheard.

1. Its a universal concept, a universal concept....wings....wings...flaming bird...flaming bird...one syllable...sounds like...gauntlet?...mitten?...glove?...so its love! No, it goes into glove...wings...dove! Dove. Its peace! Man, why couldn't you do Goldfinger like the rest of us.
