Henceforth

Posted: 11.07.06 in Blogging

While I was writing my previous post, I was also watching the final episode of Blackadder Goes Forth. My mood has sunk a little. Although the programme is a comedy and had its share of humour, it dealt with the realities of the time. Soldiers were asked to follow orders without question; in contrast, a war was raging as a result of political differences. Thousands of soldiers were expected to throw their lives to the enemy for an argument that could not be explained by those fighting. Why was it started? Why did it continue?

How could any side take the moral high ground?
