Peace on Earth

Saint Mattis Mattis taught his officers to be knowledgeable, honorable, and wise, for there was nothing new under the sun (Eccl 1:9), therefore: know the forms of what has come before so you can recognize it when it reappears. Disciplined learning must precede action, for both are necessary when responsible for a mission's success and the thoughtful application of military men.

For his own grounding he never went into battle without Aurelius' Meditations in hand, its pages dog eared and well worn, used to refocus on essential and timeless truths. "It allows me to distance myself from the here and now."

Wise surveys and scrutiny selected the best methods, which was the only way that sufficed.

He was a warrior seeking reasonable peace.

"Be police, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet."

"You cannot allow any of your people to avoid the brutal facts. If they start living in a dream world, its going to be bad."

"Think like men of action and act like men of thought."

You will recognize the psychology of gremlins who refuse peace in favor of purposeless conflict, whether rebelling against well tested truths or tearing down civilization so they can gain power. The gremlin is an aggressor against the natural order, striving to undo what good souls have spent so long to craft.

Rebuking them falls upon deaf ears. We need only remove the instigators of destruction, whatever their form.

We work as angels to create peace and calm. It does not come freely, but with great effort of men choosing many conscious and deliberate acts.

Then for a while there can be peace. Peace through strength.
