Unmasking Achilles: Today's Wars & the Devastations of Humanity

While today some contend that wars are on the decline, Sudan, Afghanistan and other parts of the world would consider anyone making such claims completely mad. And the countries and people facing the blowback of these wars on their own doorsteps would likely agree with them. In order to deal with the rapid, mass movements of people fleeing war and seeking refuge, we must delve deeply inside ourselves and be willing to go to the root causes of such movement. We must unmask the heroic image of the Achilles-type warrior and reveal the reality of war and all its consequences. In the globalized world, everything affects everything and the ripple effects touch us all in one way or another. The ultimate answer to the above questions is confronting and stopping the endless cycles of conflict. It is not a short-term solution but the situation in which we find ourselves today did not happen overnight either.
