Deceptions and Facts


The primary war is not military.

The death and maiming of our sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters is not just on the foreign battlefields.

The war is against technology that destroys:

Automobiles kill more than the wars (2006=44,000).

Nuclear Power produces dangerous wastes we cannot fully contain in the future.

Medical Technologies produce dangerous wastes and create more sickness, bondage and pain in the treatment of diseases.

Televisions, Batteries, Automobiles, Plastics etc. are hugh polluters of landfills which pollute land and water.

Electricity and Plumbing add hugh amounts to the cost of a home and keep us in bondage to employment so we are away from our home and family. Stress causes disease.

Processing of our foods and unnatural feeding of animals is keeping us in sickness and disease, weakness and pain.

Famine: Causes and Solutions

90% of US grain goes to feed livestock

1/3 of Africas peanut crop feeds cattle in Western Europe

Harvard nutritionist Jean Mayer estimated that bringing down meat production by only 10% would release enough grain to feed 60 million people.

Letting cattle graze instead of being grain fed would release huge amount of grain for human use.

World War I 1908-1919 8 million died 21 million wounded

Flu Epidemic 1918-1919 20 million died at close of World War I

World War II 1939-1945 15 million military and 10-15 million civilians died ("The war arose from the same basic political and economic conflicts as World War I")

The League of Nations and later the United Nations were formed to end wars. Both have failed There is a solution: God's Abundant Life.
