Topic: Protest the protest (plus a correction)


To march against the war is not to give peace a chance, it's to give tyranny a chance. It's to give the Iraqi nuke a chance. It is to give the next terrorist mass murder a chance. It's to march for the furtherance of evil instead of the vanquishing of evil.

I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it

CORRECTION FOR SITE:


War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. When a people are used as mere human instruments for firing cannon or thrusting bayonets, in the service and for the selfish purposes of a master, such war degrades a people. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their own free choice--is often the means of their regeneration. A man who has nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the
other.
- John Stuart Mill



I know you already have part of this quote on the site, but this is the whole paragraph it is taken from (the one on the site has chopped out a couple sentences).

Because I want to add it to my quote collection, only I like to give credit where credit is due.
