My dear,

Why not try peace for a change? If later we learn that war is better, we can go back to fighting.

Back to hating for hating’s sake, back to smiting those we envy, back to diminishing those who carry the world proudly because they carry the world proudly.

I don’t know if peace is better, it might just be the most horrible thing ever theorized, but let’s just try it for a bit – we can go back to stabbing each other with our words and weapons if we find we prefer that.

But boy, are we screwed if we find that we as people derive more satisfaction from war’s promise of death than from peace’s promise of life.

Falsely yours,
