Would you die for your country?

This is a provocative article; read at your own discretion. John F. Kennedy said that war would exist until that distant day when the individuals who claim the right to refuse to perform military service, on the grounds of freedom of thought or conscience, enjoy the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does. Wars seem to […]

Any person who observes the world is likely to become a cynic. Wars, corruption, poverty, extremism – only a few things that once discussed briefly can make some react in a similar way to this “Oh this world is messed up, what’s the point of doing anything, what’s the point of trying?”.
