War as a failure of man

“All wars are a symptom of the failure of man as a thinking animal. »John Steinbeck

Very interesting idea. Not sure it is true. My be, I would rather say that war is a symptom of man failure as a moral animal.

It’s a failure. It’s often called the last resort, almost as often, that’s a lie. I don’t think we’ve made a lot of progress toward morality. Thousand year old sayings usually pass.

War also shows just how primitive humans are, but instead of rocks and sticks or bows and arrows, we use high power weapons. Let’s just hope no one uses the big bomb that will kill us all. Hopefully, we wise up before that happens.
