A different perspective on the glorification of war

Much as war may sometimes be necessary and gratitude for those who serve appropriate, it is probably best we glorify the endeavor as little as possible so as to discourage future occurrences as much as possible. Or, put differently:

Perhaps when we remember wars, we should take off our clothes and paint ourselves blue and go on all fours all day long and grunt like pigs. That would surely be more appropriate than noble oratory and shows of flags and well-oiled guns.

-- Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle
