"War never serves peace" - Eugen Drewermann

1 post / 0 new

"War never serves peace just as lies never serve truth and cats are not dogs."

"We wage war against the nature that we exploit and against the starving whom we drive into misery. As soon as one says war, we fall back thousands of years to the Stone Age and lose the option for the future."

"Pacifism is not somethng that is only a trend of the times. Pacifism is a conviction of high moral quality and holds up against the propaganda lies of the electronic media and print media."
