Make love, not war

Dear Editor: Men have been trying to change the world by violence, war and terror for thousands of years now, and the only changes have been bad ones -- which they just go on repeating war after war, year after year, century after century. You'd think they'd be ready to try love by now, since nothing else has worked.

But, sad to say, people just don't seem to learn from history -- or I should say the men who have run nations, kingdoms and empires haven't learned. If they'd had more women running things, they might have had more success. Women know how many years it takes to nurture, teach and raise a child, and are generally much more reluctant to send that child off to some stupid, pointless, vainglorious war where he'll wind up wounded or dead.

So make love and spread love and vote for love, not war.

Ted Rudow III, MA
