"War is an ugly thing. But not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral patriotic feeling that thinks nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing 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, 1806-1873
