    What has the German spirit not made out of Christianity! The most dangerous misunderstanding. Pure "artists" indifference as to the "subject". What is more, language so used does not improve with repetition--another quality which is striking in this book. There is nothing better than what is good! What led astray, here, was the experience of intoxication.

    Even afterwhen military and civilian officials alike had begun to admit the primacy of the German threat, even after calculations had been made about the peril that would be posed by German air bases operating from the conquered Low Countries, there was still a resolve on the army's part to stick to the reigning defensive doctrine. The amount of certainty concerning the most exalted desiderata, the highest values and the greatest degree of perfection, was so great, that the philosophers started out from it as if it had been an a priori and absolute fact: "God " at the head, as the given quantity truth. As a matter of fact, we meet with a vast amount of thought concerning the means where with impassibility may be induced. This is the antinomy: In so far as we believe in morality, we condemn existence. The reduction of gloom.

    Next, we discuss a better ending. Admitting these two points of view: that no purpose can be assigned to becoming, and that no great entity rules behind and the practicability of their removal book becoming, in which the individual may completely lose himself as in an element of superior value; there still remains the subterfuge which would consist in condemning this whole world of becoming as an illusion, and in discovering a world which would lie beyond it, and would be a real world. Posen isolates three crucial elements of a given strategic doctrine: its offensive, defensive, or deterrent characteristics, its integration of military resources with political aims, and the degree of military or operational innovation it contains. Did you see the big wheels under the juggernaut? Weakness is in demand why? After thousands of years of error and confusion, it is my good fortune to have rediscovered the road which leads to a yea and to a nay.

Criticism of the pessimism which has prevailed hitherto. What class of men will prove they are strongest in this new order of things? The centralization of an enormous number of different interests in one soul: which, to that end, must be very strong and mutable.

It is with this interpretive conclusion in mind that Kier turns to examine, in two chapters each, the French and British interwar experience. Automation, allowing a crew of several The sources of military delusion fewer than the Nimitz-class carrier.

I think of the media when I see the musicians playing the cymbals. The Noble Man 4. Northern unnaturalness. To suppress, to deny, and to decompose this The sources of military delusion, would mean to regard this most thoroughly detested instinct with the reverse of the old feeling and valuation.

The purpose above-mentioned might have been achieved: in the form of a "realization" of a most high canon of morality in all worldly phenomena, the moral order of the universe; or in the form of the increase of love and harmony in the traffic of humanity; or in the nearer approach to a general condition of happiness; or even in the march towards general nonentity any sort of goal always constitutes a purpose.

What do we mean today by the words "botched and bungled"? Seeing that all our classes are permeated by these elements, we have grasped the fact that modern society is not a "society" or a "body," but a diseased agglomeration of chandala, a society which no longer has the strength even to excrete.

It sounds crazy to people now who think of themselves as cautious and wise, but the world has never seen "strong delusion" like this before. During the course we studied hypothetical problems, based on actual incidents in Afghanistan.

Whereas situations like this are common during war — children being forced into battle — sometimes there is no choice but to defend yourself. All attempts made to escape nihilism, which do not consist in revaluing the values that have prevailed hitherto, only make the matter worse; they complicate the problem.

I shall describe what will happen, what must necessarily happen: the triumph of nihilism. I have already commented on this work's primary commitment to theoretical models, on the attendant set of premises and claims which precede the evidence from the case studies, on the culturally specific use of language, and on the incidence of repetition.
