What else is WAR other than a nightmare parade, a carnival of lost souls?
Nightmare Parade — Carnival of Lost Souls — Nox Arcana
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 Morrigan is the Queen of Crows
“… 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
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.

Beethoven said all he had to say about Napoleon and “his” WAR is in the Eroica. He says it much better than I.

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.
TOWER OF BABEL — Frank Lindamood
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?
Fire — Angels and Demons — Hans Zimmer
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?

Ruaumoke is being asked to lend strength enough to shake Earth’s womb into giving birth to a volcano of power to defeat enemies, in this case the strength that in other times was used for WAR , is now is used in ritual non lethal battle, or a sports arena.

Kodo Ibuki Taiko — 侍 戦争 練り歩く 音楽
EVA for March 13, 2014, challenged us to think musically about WAR .
For March 20, 2014 we shall consider the VERNAL EQUINOX .
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.
