WORLD WAR III

"I’m 94 years old now, and I’m afraid my disposition is the same as it was 75 years ago...

This shit’s got to go."

For there to a be a World War III, it stands to reason there had to have been a World War I and II. Unknown to most, there wasn’t.

During the periods these alleged altercations occurred, Earth ― also known as the World ― wasn’t fighting various planets. Humans were slaughtering one another, but celestial bodies weren’t duking it out.

When people began perceiving themselves as analogous with the globe upon which they resided, they fallaciously assumed their species ― akin to the Earth ― would exist for billions of years. Sounds like semantics, but do you see humanity addressing the dilemma of the supervolcano beneath Yellowstone Park, or the inevitable reversal of the North and South Poles?

No. And that lack of logic results from the assumption our kind ― like this planet ― will be around as long as there’s a Universe.

Hence, there never was a World War I, nor II. There may have been a Humanity War I and II, but when people are constantly killing each other, how do you determine when one conflict ends, and another begins?

For the sake of argument, you’ve been concerned about what you perceive as World War III for years, never understanding it’s already begun. In fact, World War III has been in progress for decades. It became a legitimate battle in 1989, when the Internet was released to the public. Skirmishes were small and localized at that point, but as use of the World Wide Web grew, combat escalated.

You see, the Internet was the key to the revolution. With instant communication worldwide, a person in Nepal could share an idea with an individual in Nevada as soon as she thought it. Unlike prior eras, there was no lag time. Five hundred years previous, one was forced to wait months before discovering what was happening on the other side of the planet.

For the first time in written history, humans could converse with each other right away, no matter how far apart they were on this vast, azure ball. The Internet took the fight to another level, changing the dynamics of World War III. Suddenly, people were not only sharing ideas instantaneously, but understanding they were more alike than their governments lead them to believe. Propaganda instilled in our minds ― via brainwashing, otherwise known as schooling ― no longer made any sense.

Fear of “capitalists” or “communists” began to abate, as an individual from Montana could chat with someone from Moscow, and comprehend they were so similar they could have been twins.

As such, terms like those above were viewed as ludicrous, and factions which had injected them into our lexicon ― to divide and conquer our species ― were regarded as the true enemy. Battle lines became defined, and populations began seeing what they once thought to be their governments, in real light.

Painful verity was being exposed, and distributed across the globe with the push of a button. Hence, one could now learn that a nuclear power facility named Fukushima was melting down ― open to the environment ― and humanity’s hegemonies were doing nothing to fix the dilemma. ** We could instantaneously disseminate information regarding the Gulf of Tonkin incident *** **** ― perpetrated by the U.S. ― that lead to the murders of 58,200 American soldiers in Vietnam. Enlightenment was happening, as humans realized their governments were knowingly destroying them.

In addition, profundity took a leap of paradigm shifting proportions, as the Internet provided access to the most extensive library in known history; a repository that put the Ancient Library of Alexandria to shame. As a bonus, this warehouse of knowledge was accessible to anyone from anywhere.

Unfortunate or otherwise, most humans misused this resource that was essential to their survival. Vapid Internet sites ― which allowed a person to inform nearly any human on the planet where and when they were taking their latest shit ― were accessed most often by the majority of the population. Indecipherable messages were typed with thumbs, as the already borderline-illiterate populace became even more obtuse.

Regardless, during this epoch, more humans were able to read than at any other known period in history. Hence, awareness increased, and a division between those who understood what was happening, and the ignorant, developed. Those uninformed continued to support the very regimes that were killing them, and had no idea World War III was even occurring. Those enlightened began to grow in numbers, as they fought this silent battle to keep humanity from being exterminated. ***** Separation was apparent, and yet solidarity among all walks of humans was, as well.

As such, the gap between governments ― who had always historically sought control ― and their populations, widened.

As of the writing of these words, the outcome of World War III had yet to be determined.
