War... What are you talking about?

War... What are you talking about?

We continue in our blog with the section: What are you talking about? It is a small contribution to this blog dedicated to Culture and in which we want to collect all those terms or expressions, whether or not they are included in the Dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE), but which for one reason or another, now or in recent years are "sounding" in the media, in the street, in our environment.

Today we bring a word that we would never have wanted or had to bring to this blog dedicated to culture, but it is the word that, right now, is the one that is most heard in the media and in the street. The RAE defines the word WAR with terms and expressions such as: struggle, conflict, disagreement, breach of peace, combat, opposition... we are going to add another one: DEATH.

WAR: We are not going to be the ones to define the word WAR, we are going to leave it to writers, philosophers...

"It is not man, but, on the contrary, abundance, the surplus of energy, which gives rise to war. José Ortega y Gasset, Spanish writer.

"War makes the victor stupid and the vanquished resentful. Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher.

"War is a massacre between people who do not know each other, for the benefit of people who know each other but do not massacre each other. Paul Valéry, French poet.
"Never think that a war, however necessary or justified it may seem, is anything but a crime. Ernest Hemingway, American writer and journalist.

"All war propaganda, all the screams and lies and hatred, invariably come from people who are not fighting. George Orwell, English writer and journalist.
