NEO:

I would only add my favorite quote from Plato:

“Only the dead have seen the end of war.”

Originally posted on The Conservative Citizen:

“The United States and indeed all of what used to be called Christendom is under siege. Pericles was right: The open society depends upon the interdiction of forces calculated to destroy it. 9/11 was a salvo in “a war to reverse the triumph of the West.” [Challenge] the illusion that the world is basically a benevolent, freedom-loving place, and that if only other people had enough education, safe sex, and access to National Public Radio, they would become pacific celebrants of democracy and tolerance. . . The extraordinary growth of America’s wealth and military power in the twentieth-century—like Athens’ great wealth and power in the fifth-century B.C.—has kept the wolf from the door and the marauder from our throats. They have also abetted the illusion of invulnerability.” ~Roger Roger Kimball
