War has become “unfashionable” and will shortly be unthinkable

Humanity’s progress towards awakening is proceeding apace, and that is because you have reached the point in the process where you had previously decided to allow an enormous acceleration to occur in the rate at which you accumulate knowledge. Knowledge accumulation reduces ignorance and the limits that ignorance imposes. No longer are any subjects taboo. No longer is there any prohibition that prevents researchers from investigating the fields that interest and intrigue them. This freeing-up of orientation is accompanied by enthusiastic encouragement for those with new ideas that they wish to develop, leading to a mushrooming, expanding flow of information between diverse fields of knowledge, which further accelerates the accumulation of knowledge.
In your present state of limited consciousness — soon to be dissolved — ignorance has been one of the overriding limits that you imposed on yourselves. It is a very strange limitation because it encourages you to believe that all you know is all that there is to know! And your egos defend this belief most strenuously, hence your constant need to make the choice either to be right or happy! When you admit freely that you do not know something, you expand your sense of freedom, you allow yourselves to learn, and that makes you happy. The ego does not like that because it reduces its power over you (admittedly it is power that you gave it), and as you are well aware no one likes to lose any of their power, influence, sense of importance, or personal autonomy — which in some instances has been known to persuade people that they are above the laws that bind everyone else.
And of course it is well acknowledged that knowledge is power, so those who possess it have been, for the most part, very reluctant to share it. However, over the last forty or fifty years, a growing number of very intelligent and well-meaning individuals have been making it a career choice, making it their vocation to develop new ideas and concepts and to share them freely and without restriction in a most humanitarian manner.
The results of engaging with this kind and loving attitude is most apparent in your modern communications technologies which have grown and developed far more effectively, efficiently, and faster than would have ever been possible had those individuals chosen in any way to restrict the knowledge that they were so freely sharing. And of course others, the majority, who were also developing new ideas, were frequently very threatened if not outraged by this (as they saw it) completely irresponsible and patently insane behavior — this giving-away of power — which was so damaging to the established order and all it stood for.
