War: A Greater Evil
War is deception. War is hell. War is the exercise of raw power. A declared state of war between belligerents, however, is not the greatest evil. The greater evil is a secret, undeclared war, conducted to deprive citizens of their liberty and property.
An insidious evil is to take Liberty by fraud and deception. A repugnant evil is to usurp Liberty under color of Law and protection. A vile evil is to steal the sovereignty of parents over their families, property and commerce. The evil of cowards is to pretend loyalty while daily stealing the treasure of a life time of labor.
