AGGRESSION WILL NOT GO UNPUNISHED

(Third Sunday of Lent)
Sunday, March 24, 2019

One of the most destructive tragedies a nation can suffer is that of being the victim of aggression by a more powerful nation.

AGGRESSION ALWAYS PRODUCES DESTRUCTION AND DEATH.

 

The aggression becomes more devastating when its weapons include food, medicines, technology, sabotages, financial blockades misinformation campaigns, and selective assassinations. Aggression is even more deplorable when the aggressor is motivated by his greed to appropriate for himself the natural and human resources of the victims of aggression.

 

THE WORLD BELONGS TO ALL

This Sunday, the gospel demonstrates that the tragedy of aggression can be resolved for the benefit of its victims. Such benefits include: the unification of the people in order to confront the aggressor, the discredit of the aggressor, the denunciation of the atrocities committed by the aggressor, and the paramount conclusion that world peace must be based on respect of freedom and the right of self determination for all nations.

(By Jesús A. Diez Canseco)

THE INVADER HAS NOT CHANGED MUCH

EXPANSION OF THE INCA EMPIRE

 

History shows that he Inca Empire grew by invading other nations.
If the people of an invaded nation resisted the aggression, the incas proceeded to cut their supply of water. Thus, the choice for the victims of aggression was either to die of thirst or to surrender.

 

 

WATER SHOULD NOT BE USED AS A WEAPON

 

 

 

 

Nowadays, the imperial power grows by invading countries rich in natural resources.
When the people of a nation resist the aggression, the imperial power attacks with an economic blockade, which does the following:

FOOD SHOULD NEVER BE A WEAPON

 

– It cuts the means for the people to acquire food, leaving them with the choice of starving to death or surrendering.

 

 

 

MEDICINES SHOULD NEVER BE A WEAPON

 

– It cuts the means to acquire medicines, leaving them with the choice of dying of illness or surrendering.
