Why War?

Bertrand Russell 
“All this madness, all this rage, all this flaming death of our civilization and our hopes, has been brought about because a set of official gentleman, living luxurious lives, mostly stupid, and all without imagination or heart, have chosen that it should occur rather than that any one of them should suffer some infinitesimal rebuff to his country's pride.”
Why I Am Not a Christian

[This quote is certainly not meant for contemplatives - but sometimes the authority and beauty of the way someone writes or speaks moves me to share their words. At the least we can see again why 'pride' is often called the 'foremost of the seven sins'.]
