Interesting. Nothing Really Changes Does It?

Kurt Vonnegut

“Trusting to escape scrutiny, by fixing the public gaze upon the exceeding brightness of military glory – that attractive rainbow, that rises in showers of blood – that serpent’s eye, that charms to destroy-he plunged into war.”

Kurt Vonnegut quotes Congressman Abraham Lincoln’s criticism of President Polk’s war mongering in Mexico in his book A Man Without A Country.
