"I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity."
In this episode, I talk about intergenerational trauma specifically about the Afghanistan people who have been living in a war zone for 40 years! I break everything down to its simplest form and in order to do that, I read "War State, Trauma State: Why Afghanistan Remains Stuck in Conflict ", an article written by Erik Goepner, who was an adjunct scholar in the Cato Institute’s Defense and Foreign Policy Department." He's a retired colonel from the U.S. Air Force, his military assignments included unit commands in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Pacific region."
A study done in Canada in the 1980's shown that Holocaust survivors' grandchildren were more likely to seek psychiatric help in comparison to the general population. This is not just a Jewish phenomenon. This also applies to populations greatly affected by war-like my parents.
As a child of refugee parents who fled Cambodia from its own civil war, I have witness the struggles that my mom and dad had to go through from the after effect of war. It is obvious that they both suffer from depression, anxiety and PTSD. I too, suffer from depression, anxiety and PTSD.
So to the folks wanting a civil war in here in The United States of America, you absolutely have NO IDEA what you're talking about. We live in one of the many safest places in the world.
There is no justice in war. There is no right or wrong answers in war. Morality is determine by the ones who is left standing.
