In many ways this book is very frightening. It is scary to know that a society that thinks of itself as being basically Christian spends so much of it's wealth on war. In an age where so much time and talk is given over to the question of "values," this book shines light on the fact that we, as a people, still do not have our basic human values in order. I believe that this book shows how we are desperately trying to win wars without having to bloody ourselves, and instead we are making it more gruesome, and someday the chickens will all come home to roost. Also, I believe that the author misappropriates the quote: "Hell is other people", to Nietzsche, rather than J.P. Sartre. Am I wrong? Perhaps they both said it at one time or another?
