We're never going to win the world
We're never going to stop the war
We're never going to beat this
If belief is what we're fighting for
John does not think the U.S’s quest to democratize the world is ever going to succeed.
Imperialism is the quest to dominate the world and this is futile in John’s opinion.
We will keep warring and depleting resources as well as losing innocent lives until we realize the folly of trying to change others to become what we want them to be.
If our main foundation for our cause is rooted in belief, we are fighting a losing battle.
