Bertrand Russell on Warlike People

“People who are violent, brutal and heartless often find war enjoyable, provided that they are involved in a victorious war and that there is not too much interference with rape and plunder. Needless to say, this is a great help by those who enjoy bloodshed in persuading others who are not so wicked that wars are righteous.”

Bertrand Russell, Unpopular Essays (1950), Chapter 10: Ideas That Have Harmed Mankind, p. 159
