I don't often do this but, I think this is the time and place for it -
War is an ugly thing, But not the ugliest of things;
The decayed and degrading state of moral and patriotic
Which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.
A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight;
Nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety
Is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free,
Unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men
John Stuart Mill
We live by this!!
