Since Apr 14, 1998
War is an ugly thing
but not the ugliest of things;
the decayed and degraded state of moral
and patriotic feelings which thinks that
nothing is worth war is much worse.
A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight,
nothing which is more important than his own personal safety,
is a miserable creature
and has no chance of being free unless
made and kept so by the exertions
of better men than himself.
John Stuart Mill
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
- Samuel Adams
