John Stuart Mill quote

Via Hugh Hewitt's blog

· “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing which for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his person safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.” John Stuart Mill, 1806-1873
