Within this time and space, the law of causality permits that out of one conflict another will be spawned.  The world spirit is longing to reach a higher plateau, and the conflicts we engage in will be ours to restore -- in our way. It is all just business, really, and the industry of war is no different than any other industry.  Its primary aspiration focuses solely on the bottom line, a model that all businesses must follow in order to be successful.  But in the war business, an ethical concern develops, as the planes, weapons and bombs require that someone use them, therefore lives must be sacrificed.  And although this fact has not gone unnoticed, the machine continues to roll on.
