This subject brings me to that vilest offspring of the herd mind - the odious militia. The man who enjoys marching in line and file to the strains of music falls below my contempt; he received his great brain by mistake - the spinal cord would have been amply sufficient. This heroism at command, this senseless violence, this accursed bombast of patriotism - how intensely I despise them! War is low and despicable, and I had rather be smitten to shreds than participate in such doings. - Albert Einstein
