A Still Relevant Quote

From George Bernard Shaw, 1921:
"...powers of destruction that could hardly without uneasiness be entrusted to infinite wisdom and infinite benevolence are placed in the hands of romantic schoolboy patriots who, however generous by nature, are by education ignoramuses, dupes, snobs and sportsmen to whom fighting is a religion and killing an accomplishment...Essentially the rulers are all defectives who wield irresistible powers of physical coercion"
Borrowed without permission but with gratitude from Bar Room Philosophy.
