The Daily Servant of Power

Standard

Today’s servant of power is:

Christopher Hitchens

He rather command a military – any military – than have no influence at all.


The prophet Muhammad had many struggles when trying to spread his teachings.  One of the biggest challenges he had to face was that men who liked to consider themselves worldly and educated didn’t seem to care much for anything that wasn’t somehow associated with weaponry and power.

Centuries later, nothing has changed and Hitchens is the perfect example.

He is highly attracted to military might and the power of the United States.   It goes to show that most men and most intellectuals rather be on the side of influence and support unjustified war than feel they are helpless or having no influence whatsoever.  They want to be apart of that which “calls-the-shots” rather than left out of the “somebody’s” club.

He was wrong, just like the writers of The Economist, about the ethical justification for the invasion of Iraq.

Hitchens and The Economist writers (whoever they are) love wielding weaponry.  There is almost no other point to their existence.

    • I think it’s understandable for people to want to call the shots; but I just don’t think it’s forgivable for people to keep doing it after it’s no longer beneficial for humanity. If people would practice meditation more, they would understand the power of restraint at the right time, in my opinion.
