As subsequent revolts of the peasant and people of the wood revealed, the Christian ‘globalization’ or ‘catholization’ process was in essence a persecutorial process that involved torture. The picture to the right tells us that the leaders of the times thought of the peasants as ‘terrorists’ and tortured them according to the laws of the Inquisition http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Peasants'_War . Note the stripped trunk of the tree and its branches used for faggots. Martin Luther condemned the peasants as ‘war mongers’ when he wrote an article called Against the Murderous, Thieving Hordes of Peasants, which appeared in May 1525.
Nearly five hundred years after the German Peasant Rebellion, the barons have devised a mechanism of defense, which they believe to be foolproof. Beginning with the destruction of the woods, which opened the field of fire to machineguns, the mechanical monster—always exempting itself from having to face death by interposing the lives of others in its place—the leadership of the barons (now known as oligarchs) have devised a mechanism for war in which the machine is on automatic pilot. The important innovation in this is that sensing that soldiers, increasingly aware that they are recruited to suffer death in the place of the leadership may, therefore, come to see themselves as the next ‘peasants’ and begin a revolt against the leadership. The next war may (at least ideally) occur entirely ad hominem.
