Then down came the lidthe day was lost, for art, at Sarajevo. World-politics stepped in, and a war was started which has not ended yet: a "war to end war." But it merely ended art. It did not end war.
(Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957), British author, painter. "Toward an Art-Less Society," pt. 5, Blasting and Bombardiering (1937).)
Yes all lives matter, and the best way to stop illegal immigrants and refugees, I believe is to stop funding war and supporting peace; a fraction of the money spent on war and the development of war, will ensure a huge increase in prosperity across the globe, not blowing up the infrastructure of target countries is a good start.

When supposed civilized first world nations, are finally serious and outlaw war all wars, punish invaders and elite capitalists pimping conflict mass produced weapons, sanction prosecute skull and bones masterminds creating conflict wars; transcend greed need to orgistrate violence aggression against target human populations, with selected justified reasons translating into persecution demonic forms of suffering misery inflicted ultimately upon innocent civilions; when first world nations devote resources infrastructure science technology into solving world problems, aiding enriching the lives of all people upon this our common shared planet earth, then and only then will we attain utopia paradise, a golden age on earth because we decided to promote peace life; to live and create a beautiful world for all humanity.

This is a war universe. War all the time. That is its nature. There may be other universes based on all sorts of other principles, but ours seems to be based on war and games.
(William Burroughs (b. 1914), U.S. author. repr. In Painting and Guns, in a slightly different form (1992). "The War Universe," first published in Grand Street, no. 37 (New York, 1992).
Let us not be deceivedwe are today in the midst of a cold war.
(Bernard Baruch (1870-1965), U.S. financier. Speech, April 16, 1947, South Carolina Legislature, Columbia. Quoted in New York Times (April 17, 1947).
A year later Baruch told the Senate War Investigating Committee, "We are in the midst of a cold war which is getting warmer." Baruch claimed the expression had been suggested to him by his speechwriter (and former editor of the New York World), Herbert Bayard Swope.)
