The moderator felt the comment was exceptionally informative. Comment by Auslander Our world is slowly, actually in the last month not so slowly, approaching the active continuation of the war that started in Looking back from the relatively clear vision of a century, one can see that the second part of this war was inflicted on themselves by the supposed victors of the first active phase of the war with their draconian sanctions and reparations pushed on Germany and Austria.

Both sides will use whatever propaganda they can to make themselves look like virtuous warriors while denigrating the other side.

This task accomplished by repeated bombardments of thin narratives called sound bites and slogans. But the greater damage of repeated immersion into thin narrative, as a substitute for contemplative thought, is it reduces the capacity of many persons to comprehend or digest anything but thin narratives!
Ashley Montague in his book, Touching: The Human Significance of the Skin, says, "tactile failure in infancy results only too often in estrangement, uninvolvement, lack of identity, detachment, emotional shallowness and Indifference -- all marks of the schizoid or schizophrenic personality."
