It never ends

A number of historians have started renumbering the world wars--WWI lasted from 1914 through 1945 with a 20-year intermission; WWII was the Cold War, 1947-1991; WWIII is what we're in now. I find this persuasive.

Of course. We must adapt to the war machine. After all, war will always be with us. No need to think about it, stop it, or do anything else. Just let it roll.

War is the health of the state. And we're all feeling a bit afraid for our health, so best keep on.

But the state is a bit on the inhuman side, so its health is at odds with that of the people.

It's strange that we can't figure this one out.

It's sort of like the bumper sticker, "Freedom isn't free." So true, although not in the way intended. Freedom has been locked up, and the bumper sticker is one of the bars.
