“There is not a country and there is not a group of people on Earth that imagines itself to be an aggressor. Everyone who enters into war does so saying that they are defending something.
Do you see this now? I am making a repeated point of this because it is something you need to look at very closely. On your planet there are no “attackers”, only defenders. You achieve this interesting paradox by simply calling all attack a defense. In this way you are able to change your basic values from moment to moment as it suits you, without seeming to change them at all.
You get to kill people with impunity to obtain what you want by simply saying that you had no choice. You had to defend yourself. All attackers see their actions in this way. Indeed, you have seen your own attacks on others exactly this way. Not just in war, but in every situation of conflict in your life, from battlefields to bedrooms, command centers to boardrooms. Nobody attacks, everybody defends.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “The New Revelations”
