Memorial Day—but what about peacemakers?

Why are there no memorials for those who died for peace or social justice? We rape and plunder other people’s countries, we take their riches and leave them poor. But we are told that those who spill their blood for their corporate masters are heroes keeping us free. They are fighting first the cold war, the war on drugs, and now the war on terrorism. We’ve built an industry on war. We keep having them to use all the weapons we produce and to show the world we are the active superpower/modern empire.
