We are fed information drip by drop that pre-conditions us to accept the conviction displayed by, say for example, Tony Blair and we too imbibe and absorb, till gradually, slowly our irascible ire transforms into willing acceptance. Images of 9/11 cloud our brain and we are in unison (figuratively speaking) against the cave dwelling, bearded men that are flashed on our screen and told this is the work of Al Qai’da, even disregarding the grating american-ism of George Bush.
Evangelist of terror
Tony Blair sold a solution; Invade.
The fear he preached with such zeal was no different from any hell fire preacher of yester-year who offered you Jn 3:16 and salvation.
No different to the seller of indulgences that led Martin Luther to pin his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany, of the Holy Roman Empire, that famously held one of Europe‘s largest collections of holy relics.
As with any cult, you have to admire his personal conviction, but politely disagree. We are never going to change his mind. Tony Blair is still just as deluded as he was then, believing that his legacy will respect him. Somehow I doubt it.
Hope and fear and the flip sides of the same coin.

Truth and reconciliation of South Africa has taught us that people do begin to glimpse that they were wrong.

We used to believe that the victor in any major famous conflict of past humanity had the freedom to write his-story. While this maybe true, nowadays however the narrative of events is rehearsed, choreographed and steered towards the sanitized bite-size version that we regurgitate.
