“Brutalities such as slavery, cruel punishment, abuse of young children, corporal mutilation remain reprehensible, yet find acceptance in the body politic and may even be incorporated into its law. Though ‘war is normal’ shocks our morality and wounds our idealism, it stands solidly as a statement of fact.”
James Hillman, A Terrible Love of War, New York: Penguin Books, 2005, p. 21.
“We conclude that biology does not condemn humanity to war, and that huumanity can be freed from the bondage of biological pessimism and empowered with confidence to undertake the transformative tasks needed….Although these tasks are mainly institutional and collective, they also rest upon the consciousness of individual participants for whom pessimism and optimism are crucial factors. Just as wars begin in the ‘minds of men’, peace also begins in our minds. The same species who invented war is capable of inventing peace. The responsibility lies with each of us.”
The Seville Statement, 16 November 1989, UNESCO
