"War is the most inappropriate way of solving the differences. That´s why I´m against the pentagon and the military,
because they should be concerned with how to bridge the difference and bring nations together towards a common
purpose, namely taking care of the environment one another and restoring the damaged environment. That´s what I´d
like to see in military systems. I would like to see instead of training millions of soldiers to be killing machines, I´d rather train them to be problem solvers, send them back to school, teach them social science, social psychology, sociology, so they can add to the culture, not be destructive.

He who strikes the first blow admits he has lost the argument.~Chinese ProverbTweet
Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. (H.L. Mencken)Tweet
Progress made under the shadow of the policeman's club is false progress.
I believe that liberty is the only genuinely valuable thing that men have invented, at least in the field of government, in a thousand years. I believe that it is better to be free than to be not free, even when the former is dangerous and the latter safe. I believe that the finest qualities of man can flourish only in free air – that progress made under the shadow of the policeman's club is false progress, and of no permanent value. I believe that any man who takes the liberty of another into his keeping is bound to become a tyrant, and that any man who yields up his liberty, in however slight the measure, is bound to become a slave.
