Is a juggernaut 'natural', and does its 'might' make it 'right'.
You see Wade the 'might-is-right' meme is demonstrably untrue, yet it is
being used to justify atrocities by global juggernauts even as we write.
In many cases the weak have been proven to be right in the end. Nelson
Mandela was jailed as a 'terrorist. The CIA installed Pinochet in Chile
(another 9/11); they were 'mighty', but were they right.
Our culture's spiritual Guru, Jesus, said, "the weak will inherit the
earth" yet we bomb the crap out of defenceless (weak) people year after
year. Think about it Wade.
