Weapons of the Spirit
It may not be possible in one generation to eradicate the combative instinct.It is not even desirable to eradicate it entirely.Men should continue to fight, but they should fight for things worthwhile, not for imaginary geographical lines, racial prejudices, and private greed draped in the colors of patriotism.Their arms should be weapons of the spirit, not shrapnel and tanks.
