Thought for the day ...

... comes from John Lewis, assistant professor of history at Ashland University, writing in The Objective Standard.
To fail to establish [proper, that is constitutional] terms [for peace] is not pacific, but rather solidifies the conditions that make further war inescapable. It is not a kindness to accept a peace today that turns tomorrow's children into soldiers -- a point that Thomas Paine had understood: "let us," he wrote, "not leave the next generation to be cutting throats..."
