spreading & dispersal - causes of WAR!

About: stephen spender--british | voices education project

Yesterday while chasing down a poem I ran into the Voices Education Project which has a presence on Facebook. I noticed soon after I tried to link up there that I was getting spammed on facebook from some at the sight. My post got garbled & the only version that is recognizable is mine on their website. It's a good website, but needs work on its facebook interaction.  I identified those that I had no relationship with as spam & they disappeared luckily.
This morning I thought about & a sort of epiphany unconcealed that there was some irony that an essentially anti-war website should try to spread itself with spam - a rather hostile act. Rather than go in the hypocrisy direction, I chose to look at the similarity of spreading one's influence, ideas, people, hate, slavery, money, etc is at the root of war. That is, unless there is a mutual agreement on behalf of everyone concerned - which rarely happens! A link to the original is here. Currently, we have a spreading of the cost of Big Government around to those who do not want the things being bought. Hopefully, we can wake up & make the 2nd revolution in America a peaceful one.
     Perhaps the transition from fastblogit to facebook is for me to make. I still consider fastblogit superior for finding things & holding conversations.
     Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they?

Yes as you can see it keeps showing up as "private item" on facebook. You can follow the link though

If we both deleted our link on facebook, it might work because they seem to have that URL associated with that title.  
I don't seem to be able to delete anything except your comment. It is rather unimportant at this juncture.

That's because my comment was made associated the the URL and not your wall.  I just deleted it, and now nothing should be associated with that URL.

It is interesting that I tried to post this to facebook, but forgot to remove the private check box. Now I can't post it from any browser I have.
i don't know what is happening there.  it might be a caching problem with your browser and if so could be cleared up by clearing your cache on that browser.  i was able to click the fshare button on this 14474 and the facebook shearing window did pop up.  is that not happening on your system now?

It's a shame that nobody is interested in the anti-war quotes & perspectives of the group I mentioned here.  Some of them are pretty good. I guess it depends mostly on which side is promoting war.
