Thou Shalt Kill?

BPR Quote of the Day:

“If there were no external means of dulling their sensibilities, half of mankind would shoot themselves without delay, for to live in opposition to one’s reason is the most intolerable condition. And that is the condition of all men of the present day…’How can you kill people, when it is written in God’s commandment: Thou shalt not kill?’ I have often inquired of different soldiers. And I always drove them to embarrassment and confusion by reminding them of what they did not want to think about.”

Leo Tolstoy, 1893
