Who exactly are these power elite? Their forebearers were the immigrant plutocrats, who invaded and stole land occupied by the first inhabitants. America has never been a democracy of self-rule. It has always been a corpocracy with the corporate power elite prevailing over the government's power elite.1 America's power elite are the evil doers of America's corpocracy.

This article is a very short preview of a book I am now writing. I coined the article's title, the last part of the book's title, "Life's Triangles, The America's Power Elite, and Leveling the Living Field."
The life's triangle and its human equations are universal and eternal, perfectly explaining the America's ignominious beginning as well as its current state of affairs.
Unless the field is levelled US is doomed.

Looking inside the war industry is not a pursuit of idle curiosity. There can be nothing idle about the work of serious peace and social justice activists. There is no leeway for any ignorance about the enemy of peace and justice. The enemy must be thoroughly known from inside out, what it is, how it operates, and, most importantly, exactly what its lifeline is that gives it sustenance and unbridled growth.

With due respect to the citizens of Pisa and their landmark bell tower, I am using it loosely as a metaphor for the permanent tilting of America's institutions of higher learning to the corrupting influences of America's corpocracy ever since the beginning of those institutions.

Browsing the Internet, one can find a deluge of entries on social justice and peace activists, but very little about their own introspections on how they see and feel themselves as activists.
Seeking to fill at least partially that void I aim to explore in this article what it is like to be an activist in America for social justice and peace. I will do this in four ways.

This article fills in the gap in my analysis of the US war habit by focusing briefly on the childhood of war, the formative years before adulthood in which various influences have their greatest and long-lasting effects on those being formed, or as we shall see, being "deformed."
