Protecting Civilians In War Is A New Concept Driven By Bleeding Heart Paranoia
The concept of protecting civilians during war is recent. It is driven by fear; something called “bleeding heart emotionalism”. Irrational people believe, when they hear civilian in the media, they're safe. Its just one more modern political lie.
War, as a conscious attack by one tribe against another, has been a human behavior since the dawn of homo sapiens. And since the dawn of civilization, people who participated were considered to be nobel in their tribes. In early human history, there was no concept of a “civilian”
But this period also saw the rise of modern communications. And with that the ability of people to discuss the beliefs of people like Karl Marx and Thomas Jefferson. The western world was testing democracy, but coming to the realization that governments, despite all their claims to be the voice of the people, were often just the monarchies of old in sheep’s clothing. This has evolved into a pervasive sense of helplessness among those not in government leadership roles. And in the weaker among us, it appears as full blown paranoia. To escape this fear, these people created the mythical psychological protection we call “the civilian”. It’s mythical because of the mass killings that go on around the world on a continuing basis. But politicians play up the "civilian" word to justify conflict.
The books -- LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole; and Vol. 2: Escape to Insanity -- are based on Nappi's experience as one of the Eagle Scouts on the 1965 North Pole Expedition. They present an "Atlas Shrugged" philosophical romp through a 3 Stooges run government research world, challenging the most fundamental beliefs of human culture. The coming of age saga is filled with amazing true-life adventures expanded by the insights of 40 years in the rough and tumble world of high tech business intrigue. A life threatening climax in volume 2 finally creates a setting to pull together all the wisdom and lay out a broad and comprehensive explanation for many of the problems modern society can't seem to understand.
Ultimately, the reader will learn how public statements claiming to represent broad "public opinion", are predominantly the voice of a small elite minority intent on maintaining superiority. Mankind's greatest social institutions:
About Bruce Nappi
Bruce Nappi is founder and president of the A3 Society and author of the books LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole; and Vol. 2: Escape to Insanity. An award winning scholar, he graduated from MIT with both Bachelors and Masters degrees in Astronautics ( yes, a true MIT rocket scientist ). As an engineer and manager, he used his multi-disciplined technical background to develop leading edge products in medicine, optics, production systems, military systems, and automated testing. His resume is filled with breakthroughs like: the first fully automated system to fabricate dental crowns; fastest DNA sequencing machine in the world (1990); first 512 sensor solid state array for measuring muscle contractions;
Throughout his career, he was dismayed by repeated failures of society to draw on even a fraction of the technical advances available. He was greatly disturbed that, even with ever-growing technical capabilities, the number of poor and starving kept increasing while great wealth continued to concentrate in the hands of a few. When modern communications opened the door to participative democracy, western governments, waving the banner of democracy, hypocritically established legal barriers to keep government decisions in the hands of special interests and legislative aristocrats. This led to his lifelong quest that produced the discoveries presented in the book series LIARS! The A3 Society was founded to promote those discoveries through education. His work is summarized online at A3society.org. The books are available at http://www.smashwords.com/
