Richard Koenigsberg

Why do human beings believe that nations have a right to kill?

Richard Koenigsberg Nations fulfill our fantasy of omnipotence: make us seem/feel bigger than we actually are. We expand to fill an entire geographic space. Feeling that something is omnipotent means--it can do anything: it's not limited by the ordinary rules of society. Nations can kill because they are conceived as greater and more significant than the self.
