The First Universal Law of the Sentience is well known across the galaxy, “Violence can only be abated with the threat of equal or greater violence.” While Earthlings have long known this law, and have advance dramatically by this understanding, their society is at a point of truly testing this understanding as the most powerful Earth nation prepares to decide whether they will continue to support their actual warriors over their paper warriors; which they greatly enjoy watching act out battles in simulated arena combat.
These actors in this simulated combat called “football” have chosen a solemn moment of time, set aside prior to these simulated battles, to express gratitude for the sacrifices made by ACTUAL WARRIORS to lodge public complaints about what they perceive as “social injustice.” While this nation’s actual warriors have made strong objections to the timing of these paper warrior’s protests, the paper warriors (called football players) have not only ignored their objections but seem to have become increasingly motivated by warrior objections to proceed with these protests. In response, the large majority of this nation’s warriors have organized a peaceful boycott of the fake combat performances. This boycott is set to be held during a weekend set aside for an annual recognition of warrior sacrifice, not unlike those held by most sentient species; only less often.
The test for Earthlings on this occasion will be whether they will show respect and honor for their protective warriors by joining them in boycotting this play-acting combat, or will they put their personal need for entertainment during these false spectacles first? Failing to support their warrior class could, in the long run, lead to retarding Earthling development. Doing so would certainly lead to the demoralization of the warrior class leading to fewer physical protections for the basic rights and privileges of sentient beings. Historically, when sentient societies begin placing their frugal desires above support for their warrior class, genocidal waves are not long in coming, setting such societies back in their development.
These Earthlings are at that pivotal moment that many sentient societies have faced. They are at that point where well fought peace and security has been so effectively obtained that even cowards in the society become emboldened and falsely begin to believe that they can outright dismiss and disrespect their warrior class while still maintaining the physical security of the society needed to allow cowardice to exist in the first place. Cowardice has been the downfall on many species as it may well be here. Stay tuned for more updates!
