|The path to peace is strewn with the flesh of enemies.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story If everything had its opposite, if hot had its cold, if light had its dark, then peace had to have its chaos, and nature had to redress the balance. It came subtlety, in people's psyche. The soldiers waiting for the mythical enemy to appear found themselves needing something to do, to address their boredom. Something to do which could not be called peaceful at all. Yet, it was not them from them whom came the first spark. It was in a person whose friends and colleagues, and even her herself would have said wouldn't hurt a fly. A 74 year-old widow at a classical concert evening at a local theatre disagreed with a friend, and took a swipe at her, causing a slight scratch on her lip. As it was such a strange thing to happen, an inborn aspect of human nature showing itself, the people there couldn't carry on that night and went home wondering what, and why it happened. A child pushed over his friend in a playground. An argument in a street broke out with raised voices and threatening gestures, causing people to look at them in wonderment. So it went on. It was not gradual, as though nature was keen to get back to normal, bypassing the evolutionary route. Across the course of a year, people's repressed genetic aggressive code, wrote itself into where it should have been. However, in the course of doing so it overreached a state of balance, before retreating to where nature had placed it, in the middle, but during that time, people's aggression intensified. Throats were cut, heads and limbs hacked away, bullets spattering bone and flesh in chaotic states of viscera, before normality resumed. Normality which included crime, warfare, aggression, and love, and happiness, and cute baby penguins. So almost 400 years from your time, nature had restored its balance. Tweet
