The Ugliest Of Things

The following was taken from a letter penned by Les Zerbe:

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept solely by the exertions of better men than himself.” – John Stuart Mill
