One of Voices’ regular contributors to our work is Barbara Kaufmann.  Barbara is an award winning writer, peacemaker minister, healer and shaman who “writes to simply change the world.” Her One Wordsmith www.onewordsmith.com website is filled with humanitarian short stories. And her new website Inner Michael www.innermichael.com features her research and writing in tribute to a global humanitarian. It is a metaphysical look at a misunderstood genius and man of our times who, it turns out, was a spiritual messenger hiding in plain sight.

Recently Barbara has been pondering what she terms a new vision of a Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD).  According to Barbara, this new WMD is out there and unleashed.  It is destroying us one installment at a time.  And what is most horrible about this weapon: it’s friendly fire. We are going after our own! It’s a nasty practice of impaling and destroying people for sport or amusement.

At the same time it is attacking and destroying a human, it destroys our collective humanity. It exposes human depravity and revels in it with glee. It skewers people while slicing them up it and serving up the pieces for our consumption. It reduces us to voyeurs and cannibals. Are you participating in the slaughter? Are you contributing to your own devolution and that of humanity?
