War: Its Stark Truths

Richard Koenigsberg

Wars are fought–soldiers die–to testify to the truth of a society’s sacred ideal. If so many people die for an ideology—it must be real.

“I soon learned to scent out what was able to lead to fundamentals–and to turn aside from everything else, from the multitude of things that clutter up the mind.” Albert Einstein

“A theory is the more impressive the greater the simplicity of its premises, the more different kinds of things it relates, and the more extended its area of applicability.” …… Albert Einstein
