Letter to the Editor – Rebecca Gingrich of Princeton Ontario on the Military Industrial Complex – August 11, 2011

Dear Editor,

How much more evil can we become?  We get upset and ourtraged when a few protesters smash store windows and burn police cars but have no concept of how we are allowing our governments to perpetrate this death and destruction on innocent people in our name, with no accountability, except some smarmy words about saving humanity.


I guess the men, women and children we have murdered were not ‘humanity’?  Who made our governments the arbiters of those decisions?  And we are only worried about the stock markets and the failure of such and the impact that will have on our lives.  These poor people are being killed to make the military/industrial complex President Eisenhower warned us about richer. And we mean no more to our governments than these poor people did.


Don’t worry, our turn is coming.

Rebecca Gingrich – Princeton, Ontario

  1. I believe that “Bringing Comfort to the Enemy” is still a crime in this country. If you don’t like it, leave it!

  2. Nice to see Freedom of Speech is still alive and well in our country, accept for a few individuals.

  3. Sadly Rebecca, there is no perfect government and obviously never will be. Until people awaken and start saying no, we give them permission to do as they want.
