"How many times has this happened to you: at the schoolyard, you watch two kindergarteners prattle senselessly about some toy-related dispute. They rally their fellows to their respective causes, each pressing the justice of his case. Forces amassed, they begin gamely pushing and smacking one another, resulting in plaintive cries of woe, only to desultorily cease hostilities, with no appreciable change in the allotment of toys.Because war is just sibling rivalry, penis envy, and potty training by other means.
And you think to yourself: If only these children could appreciate Clausewitz, this awful futility could have been avoided."
