"Imagine a man his age risking what little life he has left for something so
absurd as a country" ... "What is a country? A country is a piece of land
surrounded on all sides by boundaries, usually unnatural. Englishmen are
dying for England. Americans are dying for America, Germans are dying for
Germany. Russians are dying for Russia. There are now fifty or sixty
countries fighting in this war. Surely so many countries can't all be worth
dying for."
