A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on war, enemies, and government

The tragedy of modern war is not so much that the young men die but that they die fighting each other - instead of their real enemies back home in the capitals.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on military, war, patriotism, nationalism, heroism, violence, and hypocrisy

The worst outcrop of herd life [is] the military system, which I abhor.  That a man can take pleasure in marching in fours to the strains of a band is enough to make me despise him.  He has only been given his big brain by mistake; unprotected spinal marrow was all he needed.  This plague-spot of civilization ought to be abolished with all possible speed.  Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism - how passionately I hate them!  How vile and despicable war seems to me!  I would rather be hacked in pieces than take part in such an abominable business.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Rachel Louise Carson on animal rights, peace, cruelty, war, humanity, and progress

Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is -- whether its victim is human or animal -- we cannot expect things to be much better in this world. We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing, we set back the progress of humanity.

A Quote by George Orwell on orwell, 1984, war, politics, government, society, and control

War, it will be seen, accomplishes the necessary destruction, but accomplishes it in a psychologically acceptable way. In principle it would be quite simple to waste the surplus labour of the world by building temples and pyramids, by digging holes and filling them up again, or even by producing vast quantities of goods and then setting fire to them. But this would provide only the economic and not the emotional basis for a hierarchical society. What is concerned here is not the morale of masses, whose attitude is unimportant so long as they are kept steadily at work, but the morale of the Party itself.

George Orwell (1903 - 1950)
