Is Ukraine fighting and dying for glory and love of country or fear of enslavement by Russia, or is there another reason?

I read a post titled: The Killer Angels and Their Killing Fields – Part 2 of 2, which the writer seems to wonder why people choose to die in wars and ends with this statement.

“So, there you have it… to kick out an invader humans have to kill other humans.  In 2022 we thought us humans of this day and age had reached a point where our intellect and reasoning had finally understood the futility of war.  Silly us.  War itself is all the reason we need to do anything we want.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient wisdom verses to this conundrum question for the reason Ukraine is resisting an invasion by a much greater equipped and more Populus enemy to avoid the deaths, misery, and destruction now occurring in Ukraine.

King Solomon

There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to kill and a time to heal,

 a time for war and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes Chapter Three Excerpts)

What’s My Point?

King Solomon observed that there are seasons in life that bring about opposite times we humans will experience in our lifetimes.

He does not explain why, he only observed the seasons. He predicted the reasons are related to human wise or foolish choices made by imperfect humans will keep repeating in every new generation because of human failings related mainly to vanity and greed.,

My point is since the predictions have proven to be true based on history, is the reason wars keep repeating a seasonal phenomena we humans have no control over same as the weather or lifespans?.

Or is there a far wiser remedy to end wars by humans’ intervention of the season’s in a similar manner that environmentalists now want to change the earth temperatures believed to be affecting climate change?

In My Opinion

We in the USA in our contemporary times and history of a Civil War over slavery have no memory of being invaded and conquered, which in other words enslaves people from freedoms of choice.

Frankly, I never believed Ukraine would have the capability to defend or even the desire to sacrifice and risk death once Russa began the war.

As for what the final outcome will be in Ukraine will be to effect the changes needed to end or change the seasons of war or climate, I sadly believe that history has already been repeated five times for the same reasons.

All we have to do is read about the causes of the five previous life extinctions that have occurred mainly because of climate change brought about by animals eating up vegetation that resulted in climate change.

That is unless we wise up and return to teaching youth Biblical Wisdom and Love prevention measures to avoid repetition of the seasons in humans, earth, and animal lifetimes.

In other words, until we all join in a community of the world to defend against wars and manage earth in a wise rather than foolish manner, the following King observation will once again prove true, in my opinion.

“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
