Word Box
“Making weapons is what we know how to do best, the supreme
achievement of late-twentieth-century American civilization. To
this blessed work we assign our finest intellect and the largest
share of our treasure, and in the magnificences of an aircraft
carrier or a cruise missile we find our moral and aesthetic
equivalent of the Sistine ceiling and Chartres Cathedral.”
– Lewis Lapham
