Example text

The first two of these come from war, "united as in battle," the suffering that regenerates being contrasted with the luxury that corrupts (an idea that Hegel expressed when he presented war as the civic remedy for the selfish weaknesses of civil society).

If we could see these contradictions as dilemmas rather than as contests of good with evil, and our present dangers as a historic predicament rather than the consequence of American or Russian or Japanese villainy, we might manage them better.
