I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they killed, there would be no more wars.

... said Abbie Hoffman. Unfortunately, he hadn't really counted on the recent rise of the First Militant Church Of The Blood-Crazed Cannibal Christ (This is my body, this is my blood, this is my eleven secret herbs and spices).

(Short interlude: In the book Fuck the System, Abbie Hoffman describes two diseases you can catch in New York ...
Clap (syphilis and gonorrhea) and Tasmanian Pig Fever (TPF) are two diseases you can easily pick up for free on the Lower East Side. One, the Clap, you catch, and the other, TPF, catches you ... Tasmanian Pig Fever is a disease common to the Lower a variety of reasons. Let's face it, the Lower East Side is a ghetto and getting busted by a cop is common in any American ghetto ... The TPF is the riot control squad in New York and is called out to handle many street demonstrations.
Charming ...)

Anyway, the discussion for today is war, or more specifically New Zealand at war, or even more specifically The Invasion of New Zealand. In the next 50 years who is likely to attempt to invade us and why? The US? Australia? Indonesia? The Ravening Islamic Hordes? The Ravening Christian Hordes? The Ravening Jedi Census Phenomenon Hordes? Which will it be, Resources or Religion?

Or has economics superceded politics by other means? Is the US just a slow learner?

America will invade, because we hate freedom and have weapons of mass distruction and we flew some planes into the world trade centre in 2001.
