“Listen. I’m not naive. I know what kind of world I’m living in—have always lived in. It’s a world where violence is the first, best option. The primary recourse.
And all I’m saying, all I’ve ever tried to fucking say, is—that’s wrong. War shouldn’t be the solution to every conflict. You don’t have to break someone’s goddamn neck because you don’t like how they do things.
You don’t have to perpetuate the blood feuds, the hatreds, the power games. There are other ways, most of the time. Violence should be the last resort. It should be the path you walk when every other alternative has been exhausted.
But I can admit it.
I’m fucking exhausted. And I’m going to war.”
