On War

War does not determine who is right - only who is left.
Bertrand Russell

War is God's way of teaching Americans geography.
Ambrose Bierce

You can't say civilization don't advance, however, for in every war they kill you in a new way.
Will Rogers

Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.
Oscar Wilde

Sociology has been dealing with origins of war, and many thousands of theories have been advanced, many of them contradictory. Sociology has thus divided into a number of schools. One, the Primat der Innenpolitik (Primacy of Domestic Politics) school based on the works of Eckart Kehr and Hans-Ulrich Wehler, sees war as the product of domestic conditions, with only the target of aggression being determined by international realities. Thus World War I was not a product of international disputes, secret treaties, or the balance of power but a product of the economic, social, and political situation within each of the states involved.
