Question: Do you believe war is an irrational part of the human condition? –Thomas K.
Answer: War is something that arises because of our lack of empathy for fellow human beings. Nothing (IMHO) is irrational. Al-Qaeeda is not irrational, nor is President Ahmedijinad (of Iran). These are very real and sensible conclusions to current and past events. And to understand the problem in order solve it, we need to get past the "they hate freedom" rhetoric. Sorry for digressing, but no, I don’t think war is irrational, it is an unfortunate consequence of human selfishness. –Muhammed
