There are four schools of thought on the subject of war.
1) There are the Prussians, who regard war as the most glorious activity of man.
2) There are the Realists, who regard war as an evil. But they realise that there are circumstances in which war is the lesser of two evils.
3) There are the quasi-Pacifists, who would make almost any concession to avoid war.
4) And there are the extreme Pacifists, who regard war as the ultimate evil, and who hold all participation in war as unacceptable—and certainly un-Christian.
