WAR –Music Themes

What else is WAR other than a nightmare parade, a carnival of lost souls?

The poetic Gaeilge languages seem to have a built in understand the relationship between terror and the control of others .   In language origins there is an association between this terrible power or terror power and with greatness. The construction of all languages and the basic root words give us more than hints and about our individual cultural perspectives about  what WAR is and what situations require WAR.

“… the Irish “Morrígan” has its roots either in a word for “terror” or a word for “greatness”.”

This dance excerpt clip  from a Chinese made film dramatizing the Rape of Nanking
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_of_Nanking
Nanking was only one monstrous atrocity. Our World History is filled with atrocity. How is it that there are still persons who wish to commit yet more atrocities? There are those who are committing horror on others at this very moment.
There are many well made and beautiful films and symphony scores which glorify massacres, genocide, and the horror we inflict on each other. I chose this clip because, being a caricature, it is not so beautiful in the terrible way that much    WAR drama is.

How many WARs are begun as simple misunderstandings, misinterpretation of language?  Not many, I think. Deceit is no accident. Evil disguises itself in ideology and hides behind twisted language.  Conflict and confusion is sowed for the purpose of WAR.

WAR  Mongers take heed. Not all judgment is divine. Perhaps you will be judged by the Mothers of Men.  Ye who force others to fight for reasons that should not be are cursed already.  You have cursed yourselves.   What should be our judgment?   Can a Being with no soul experience judgement?

In the end, it is love, not fear or the terrible glory of death, that prevents us from completely annihilating one another with  WAR. Most of us have grown up with the good fortune of Damocles hanging over our infant cradles. This good fortune has been gently swaying over our heads since before I was born.  Is it possible to remove this Sword of Annihilation from our beautiful Earth?

Can the horror of WAR  actually be transcended with music? Does making the aftermath bearable allow us to do it all over again?

I wanted to touch on our Civil WAR and the introduction of the Draft (conscript military service), and World WAR  I and how World WAR  II was a continuation of WWI and how WWI was left over from older times. I wanted to touch on how many of our current conflicts and wars are not really new, but are part of the aftermath of unresolved older WARs …. As with anything else, there is no way to separate out anything from everything else. All of history flows together. We are what we are.

  1. Hello Johnny! I second Bear’s response.
    Though I’m not so sure I entirely agree with the Greek.

    Deceit is often deliberate – for example, when in 1914 Germany wanted to get on with war with France (a war in the east already being certain), an incident of French military aircraft attacking a German town was invented. For the second Iraq war, information about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction was manufactured, though it may be more a matter of people being convinced of something and therefore bending the evide3nce to what they believed, rather than cold deceit. People have a huge capacity for self-deceit.

    However, it also can happen that two countries, or governments, are nervous about one another, each fearing the other, so for example a defensive move by country A to strengthen forces on the border is interpreted as preparation to attack and country B attacks. It can also happen that a real incident between two patrols, say, may have been an accident unintended at the higher levels, but each side can assume their enemy had planned it.

    • Mistakes and deceit are not the same. You are correct. However mistakes are often made as the result of deceit. Usually, though not always, the instigators can be discovered by determining who thinks who will benefit, and what those supposed benefits might be.

      You are always thinking. 🙂 Thank you

  4. The Vernal Equinox—hmmmm. Copy that.

    We’ve both touched on the Rape of Nanking. Interesting dance piece you found. I went with The Flowers of War film. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time.

    I do believe much of this war making is a business dealing with choices. I hope the time will come sooner rather than later when we will decide to NOT engage in wasting lives in war-making.

    For now,
