39. War OR Peace?

3/3/2021
You know the saying, "War and Peace go together like birds of a feather". Birds have lots of feathers, you see, and a bird would not actually be legally called a bird if it had no feathers... Which is a lot like war and peace when you think about it. I mean, when you really think about it. Can you ever truly have peace without having some war? Does war inevitably always lead to peace?
