Wolter - Letter to the Editor


Fri, Apr 9th, 2004
Posted in Letter to the Editor

In response to Norm Eastvold's letter to the editor appearing in last week's Journal.

To quote my article "Enough is Enough": "Why is there a ´war on terror' where there should be a war on ignorance, the real enemy." I didn't say anything along the lines of ignoring this problem of terrorism, and I certainly don't think we should ignore it. I think we need solutions to problems that won't ever go away, instead of using violence as a temporary cure.

Consider an infected finger; you can either treat the infection with antibiotics, or you can chop it off. Chopping off the finger most definitely fixes the problem, but what happens when another infection comes up? Just keep on chopping?

My analogy maybe isn't the most eloquent, but the point remains. We need to develop antibiotics, so to speak. We need a cure for hate and misinformation and bigotry, not the temporary answers of bullets and bombs.

It's ironic that you say "Those that do not know history are doomed to repeat it." Because what I know of history, there has been war and violence for a very long, long time. Enough war and death and violence to figure out it isn't the way to solve problems. So yes, those who do not know history most certainly do repeat it, over and over and over again.
