War and PeeCE

By: M. J. Sperry

"No war by any nation in any time has ever been declared by the people" - Eugene Debs 1855-1926

The truth of the above quote is self evident. While the quote speaks for itself, it also implies that an inhibiting connection should exist between the declaration of war and the people who have to fight the war, a connection that must pass directly and exclusively through the citizen's vote. Question: Why would anyone who actually had to fight and possibly die in war, declare war? Answer: For one and only one reason; because there simply is no other alternative.

The Debs Principle: Warlike society and genuine suffrage are mutually exclusive

If the Debs Principle is accepted as true, then it follows that in a warlike society genuine suffrage must be non-existent and conversely, non-existent suffrage becomes a prodigious predictor of warlike behavior. In a warlike society either the vote is overtly non-existent, or it is only an elaborate facade, certainly involving a coerced or complicit media to complete the deception.. Genuine suffrage automatically moderates a society. The knowledge of this raises the possibility of a simple solution to an age old problem, war.

Redefined: war (wor) n. 1. the violent, though subtle result of a lack of genuine suffrage

A Shining Example of A Peaceful Nation

If the Debs Principle is valid, then there should be examples of nations that rarely go to war, where the people are in control through their vote. There should also be examples of nations that regularly are at war, where the people lack control through a facade of a vote.

Consider Switzerland, the foremost democracy of the world. Many have the mistaken impression that the Swiss are controlled by the banking system they are so well known for. Actually, it is just the opposite. The Swiss people hold as tight a reign on their banking system as they do on their government.
