“Never think that wars are irrational catastrophes: they happen
when wrong ways of thinking and living bring about intolerable
situations. Š The root causes of conflict are usually to be found
in some wrong way of life in which all parties have acquiesced, and
for which everybody must, to some extent, bear the blame.”
– Dorothy Sayers
