A little bit of renovation
When I started this blog last year, it was kind of a notepad for my thoughts and responses to all the things I had been reading. It’s turned out to be a really valuable experience, connecting me to a remarkable community of people. But I never actually titled this blog, because, well, it wasn’t necessarily something that needed a title.
So instead of just using my name, I though I’d invite opinion as to what I should use as a title. A little bit of crowdsourcing, hey? I’d really appreciate your input.
I pulled the ideas from some quotes I liked from a few dead guys, but I’d welcome other suggestions too.
- You say it is the good cause that hallows even war? I tell you: it is the good war that hallows every cause. –Friedrich Nietzsche
- It is clear that war is not a mere act of policy but a true political instrument, a continuation of political activity by other means. –Clausewitz
- War is just when it is necessary; arms are permissible when there is no hope except in arms. –Livy (Iustum enim est bellum quibus necessarium, et pia arma ubi nulla in armis spes est, in the Latin.)
