I've just begun to read the book "Hiroshima", and a close friend sent me a tragically poignant quote that I thought I would share...
In reference to WWII:

Many intellectuals and artists were disillusioned by the war. The
philosopher Bertrand Russell said,

"All this madness, all this rage, all this flaming death of our
civilization and our hopes, has been brought about because a set of
official gentlemen, living luxurious lives, mostly stupid, and all
without imagination or heart, have chosen that it should occur rather
than that any one of them should suffer some infinitesimal rebuff to his
country's pride."
