Depressing thought of the day

March 12, 2012 — Leave a comment

In On War, Carl von Clausewitz said, “War is not merely a political act, but also a real political instrument, a continuation of political commerce, a carrying out of the same by other means.”

But here’s a thought that I had this morning. Over the past few years there have been so many creepy pieces of legislation proposed that seem to be designed exclusively to suppress or control a group of people, whether it’s women, immigrants, homosexuals, whoever.

So it would seem that politics, increasingly, is a type of war by other means.
