I am writing today to express my opinion on an issue that has been
shelved for the last eight years but still does not go away: The Trojan
War. As you are well aware, our finest Greek soldiers have been fighting
in a war with the Trojans for quite a long time. Today we almost take
this for granted! Every day hundreds of our finest brave young men are
mercilessly slaughtered by the finest brave young Trojans, and vice versa!
This news does not even make the headlines of Mediterranean Daily! Our
society is being lowered to the level of accepting this continual brutal
death and violence as part of everyday life!
In my day, people enjoyed living. Now all of our resources are put into
the war effort, a war that most citizens do not know why we are fighting.
If this were a democratic society, I would definitely petition the
government for a review of the causes leading up to this war. Unfortunately,
our kings are also involved in the war!
We all need to consider why we support our country in this military conflict.
I am the very first person to stand behing our lord and king, but I do not
believe this war can ever be productive. Its cause, if any of you remember,
(and studies show that 65% of you don't) was the abduction of Helen. Let
her go, I say! One little woman is not worth my sons, your sons, and
everybody else's sons! Write to the Royal Palace now to stop this madness!
