When the young men fighting wars stop killing each other and march home to take out our true enemies in the capitols there will be no more poor men dying for rich men's wars. There would be no more soldiers, but there would be plenty of warriors.
I recently saw the documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, an account by English soldiers of their experiences in the Great War of 1914-1918. Culled from hundreds of hours of colorized actual wartime footage, it's a beautiful and heart wrenching film.
