Is war ever a good thing?


If you or a loved one are killed, injured or made homeless through war itis clearly never a good thing. If however you are saved from persecution or harm or liberated by a war you may argue that it was good. What wars always do however is to advance science, technology and medicine very rapidly, an example being that the second world war took aircraft design from open cockpit bi-planes to jets in just five years. Therefore it can leave a positive legacy for future.

Indeed, war is a catalyst for change! Can we measure the benefits of human sacrifice against human progress? Is progress possible without sacrifice? Sam
