Kind of a stupid game, isn’t it? (Cartoon)

War! Huh! What is it good for?

Trungpa Rinpoche, on a Buddhist approach to Aggression:

“You cannot really eliminate pain through aggression. The more you kill, the more you strengthen the killer who will create new things to be killed. The aggression grows until finally there is no space: the whole environment has been solidified. There are not even gaps at which to look back or do to do a double take. The whole space has become completely filled with aggression. It is outrageous. There is no opportunity to create a watcher to testify to your destruction, no one to give you a report. But at the same time, the aggression grows. The more you destroy, the more you create.” ~ Chögyam Trungpa
