An old but very true adage tossed about when a just reward has been received for a kind deed, or inversely, appropriate punishment for cruelty inflicted on an animal, their fellow man or on a nation. It’s an unspoken law that we should all respect as individuals, as the general public or as a country, because it might as well have been written in stone.
Civil law that is written into the books, challenged, and repealed to suit the needs of society is not what this is about. Those laws are an ever-changing creation by man; the oil that keeps the machine running smoothly, till suddenly a small bearing becomes overheated then the law needs an amendment.
War is the glaring example of that irrefutable natural law, what goes around comes around. If Hitler had been a peaceful man and channeled his effort for the betterment of his people and country, ww2 would not be in the history books and I would have stayed home to help my father log his patch of timber.
I believe Hitler died in his bunker.
Human blood soaked into the battlefields, while grieving mothers, widows and orphans, learned to cope. Munitions plants and arms production built their personal freeway to the bank. Millionaires raised their profile to Billionaires forgetting about the natural law that would balance the scales, unless by some miracle the scales have been balanced.
Not very likely: The scales have never balanced through millenniums of time. Until man learns how to love his neighbor, stops holding a gun to his head, gives him food and water, and above all takes the time and has the patience to simply understand, there is little hope for early improvement.
When a country, any country, wages war against another country the scales of time become unbalanced for a long time. The battle may be won with guns, but the war is won through negotiations by intelligent people that understand the disastrous outcome if they fail. Right now a match is ready to drop in tinder dry forest. It’s time to put away the match and hope for rain.
