This author has some really interesting thoughts on war and why we seem so doomed to repeat it. Don't be put off by the horrible title.

Tom liked a quote
4770
“How could a just God permit great misery? The Haitian peasants answered with a proverb: "Bondye konn bay, men li pa konn separe," in literal translation, "God gives but doesn't share." This meant... God gives us humans everything we need to flourish, but he's not the one who's supposed to divvy up the loot. That charge was laid upon us.”
