Christianity And The Widespread Delusion That Punishment Is The Swiftest Path To Reformation

Dear F,

Thanks for your email.

I am increasingly persuaded that America's fondness for military force is rooted in conservative "Christianity" whose reigning Deity will "teach evildoers a lesson" by ensuring their eternal torment in a "Lake Of Unquenchable Fire."

Here are several blog posts which probe this issue.

The Age-Old Normalization Of Warfare Through Stupidity, Ego And Religion

"Do Wars Really Defend America's Freedom?"

The Mistaken Concept That Reducing Cultures To Rubble Results In Peace

Punishment Rarely Reforms But Instead Tends To Reinforce Wrongdoing

Concerning your comments on comedy as a political tool...

It has been said "the one thing the devil cannot stand is ridicule." 

Consider this fine list of "Quotes About Ridicule." I think it will interest, amuse and perhaps help you consolidate your sense that ridicule may be our best defense - and offense - in the Anti-Culture War waged by His Despicableness.

Dear A

I was just thinking today that our best defense and offense with Trump is through comedy.Take everything he says or tweets and ridicule it. Like the veiled  chest pumping threat  he made on AF-1 in response to Iran's Ayatolla. "They better be careful" or sending the troups into Chicago. He's very loose with   using military force as an answer. We can see how easily he decided to send in the Seals to the I'll fated Yemen 'very successful' attack. Even with McCain's derision they make the claim of success and it falls under the radar like most other stuff. 
He was hoping for a stellar outcome like the Bin Laden  raid. If it had been comparable, we'd still be hearing about it.
