Previous Section   187. WAR AS A REMEDY   Next Section

War as a Remedy.  For nations that are growing weak and contemptible war may be prescribed as a remedy, if indeed they really want to go on living.  National consumption as well as individual admits of a brutal cure.  The eternal will to live and inability to die is, however, in itself already a sign of senility of emotion.  The more fully and thoroughly we live, the more ready we are to sacrifice life for a single pleasurable emotion.  A people that lives and feels in this wise has no need of war.
